What does the error code F-01 mean on my Kenmore front loaded HE2 dryer?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I have a Kenmore HE2 dryer. It stops rotating in the middle of the cycle but the timer keeps going. I checked the vent from the dryer to the house. When I lifted up the vent pipe, I got the error message. By unplugging and plugging in the electrical cord, I got the dryer to work again. The number on the Quick start guide that came with the dryer calls out W10035070.

We already replaced to board located over the drum. We are still getting this error code. What is the next step?

The F-01 error code indicates a primary control board failure on this model of dryer. If the error cleared after unplugging it for a while, then the control board could have received a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Completely disconnecting the electrical power and then reconnecting it will sometimes reset the board and it will operate properly. If your dryer continues to operate properly, then resetting the control board may have fixed your problem.

If the dryer motor continues to stop, then you may have a bad control board. A wiring problem or drive motor failure could also prevent the dryer from continuing to run properly. A technician is normally needed to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

If the F-01 returns and will not clear, then you will need to replace the control board in the dryer.

If you want to attempt to repair the dryer yourself, resubmit your question with additional details.
