Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
When unhooking washer hoses from the washer or the wall supply, whether moving to a new home or working on your washing machine, always change the rubber seals where the hoses connect. The seals could have been overtightened causing them to tear slightly but could have sealed for years. Now that the hoses have been taken off they may not seal correctly and even a leaking drip from them can cause a big water problem in your home. ALSO, the rubber hoses that you can buy and the ones that come with your washer are usually labeled to change either within 3yrs. or 5yrs.. These hoses are prone to burst and I have customers that told me the horror stories of a faucet being turned on in their home. It is not pretty. Replace these hoses with either a nylon or steel braided hose for added assurance they do not burst before the time specified.

Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower right of the wash cycle selector.
Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.
Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.
Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.
Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.
If the error code come back you will probably have to change the water inlet valves. No hard to do and you can fdo this yourself
