Very randomly sometimes every load, sometimes 3rd-5th load, with about 8-14 minutes left the washer beeps and flashes error code C. This is cleared by pressing cancel once then re-starting. This started when a power outage occurred during the wash cycle. The first error code was CF - after stopping washer unplugging and then restarting now the error code is always C.

Any Ideas?

Thank you!

** Kenmore HE3t washer **

While that describes the basic machine you have, it does not help to identify the *specific* washer you have. What is needed is the complete model number as written in the machine's model and serial number tag which should be behind the door.

** washer beeps and flashes error code C **

"Error" or fault codes are usually prefixed by the letter "F" for "Fault".

** This started when a power outage occurred during the wash cycle. The first error code was CF **

The "C" codes are usually just indicators used during a test mode to tell what parts of the system are engaged but are usually followed by 2 numeric digits. (eg. C:00, C:01, C:02, etc.) I've never heard of a "CF" but what it means may depend on *exactly* what the machine is suppose to be doing at the time.

You could see if you can locate the appliance's 'tech sheet' that may list such codes which should be with the unit's wiring diagram either inside the machine's control console on inside the washer's cabinet in a small pocket, pouch or envelope stuck to the RH side panel. Maybe it will give you a clue as to what is transpiring?
