F01, good thermal fuse, and replaced control board and no power

Was getting F01 on our Duet Sport (WED8300SW1) and tested the thermal fuse and found continuity, so we replaced the control board. Now we don't seem to be getting any power at all (and the fuse is still good). Any ideas?

Kenmore Elite HE 5t Steam Dryer F01 Error

Details: Error Code: F01 Model Number: 110.87731702 My wife mentioned the 'dryer doesn't work'. I entered the laundry room and smelled smoke and F01 was flashing on the dryer display. After a quick search, I unplugged the dryer to reset. Plugged it back in and turned it on after 1min+ and it powered on fine, I could select options as normal, but when I selected start, the display panel went dark and F01 appeared after 10 seconds. After reading your feedback to other, I'm more than willing to try to change the thermal fuse (first) and control panel second. If you think either is the likely cause. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Mike

Hello Mike,

Considering the fact that you smelled smoke the issue with your dryer is definitely a failed main control board. The fuse will never cause smoke and that electrical burning smell that is a complete meltdown of the main control board. The board you will need to replace for your Kenmore Elite Dryer model number 110.87731702 is linked below:

You can try and reset the main control by killing power to the dryer at the breaker or by unplugging it for no less than one full minute, restore power and see if the error persists, if it does then the power surge shorted the main control board on the dryer and it will have to be replaced to fix the dryer.

F1 error code

I changed the main board out with a new board and still getting the F 1 code. I checked the thermal fuse and it had continuity using a meter. What else might it be? I was first getting the f70 code and I cleaned it out as it was very dirty with lint. That's when I started getting the f1 code. wed9200sq0 is the model. Thanks foer any help you might be able to supply. Vaughn McCamy

Hello Vaughn,

In some rare cases a bad outlet thermistor can cause the F1 error code, follow the instructions at the link below and replace the thermistor if that does not fix the issue the dryer has a wiring problem in the wiring harness somewhere which in many cases takes a very seasoned tech to trace down and pinpoint. The thermistor part number listed in the directions below is the correct part for the model number you gave. I verified it.

I just wanted to say thanks for saving me a pile of cash!

I was about to order and replace the control board because of the F01 error code when I came across this website and found that it could also possibly be the thermal fuse. So I checked it and sure enough that was the problem. Guess I was lucky. Thank you!

Glad you got it fixed.

Can the F01 error be caused by anything other than the control board?

I took the board out and looked it over and I do not see any burned spots on the board, it looks good. I just want to make sure it can only be the board before I order one. Thanks.

First just because the board does not have any bad spots on it does not mean it's ok. Having said that in some cases the error can be caused by a failed thermal fuse, so if you want to be certain it's the board make sure you check the thermal fuse with a meter, it's located on top of the blower wheel housing.
