Front load washer problem

When I put my Kenmore front loading washer on the "Cleaning" cycle, after it goes through the cycle for two minutes, it shuts off and shows a code of "rl". Does anyone know what this means, as it is not in the owners manual?

Try contacting Maytag now. I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who works for Maytag and he said the they may now have the fix for it. He said that they may be replacing the board at no cost to the customer but you have to contact them (Maytag) directly. Good luck.

If it has a clean cycle that says, "Bleach Only," run it with 1/2 cup bleach right in the machine. If not, run it on the longest, hottest cycle you have. In the future, leave the door open slightly between loads.

Where do we put the bleach for just a cleaning cycle-run?


you can put it in the soap part or into the tub/ but i would suggest AFFRESH which is a front load washer cleaner that works so much better than just bleach alone

I have a HE5t kenmore elite front loading washer. It has done great for about 15 months. We were away for about 3 weeks, and since we have returned, I put in a load of clothes, and it tries to start...


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

The machine smells moldy even after I ran clorox through it.


keep doing it. it is going to take more than one cycle of cleaning to get rid of the smell. They sell products to help clean out odors of washers. These are some products you can use Washer Magic or Affresh tablets. If you have a Sears near you they sell it. I would use hot water and bleach one cycle then do a Affresh tablet. See how it goes

Cleaning cycle


bleach goes in the bleach area. no soap or clothes in the washer. close the lid and hit the power & clean washer buttons. should run for 60 minutes, but check it after an hour to make sure it is complete. mine ran (malfunctioned) for over 3 hours indicating 7 minutes left.

My kenmore front load did that just a few months after I bought it. Unfortunately it was the the electronic board {brains of cycles} that had to be replaced. Had to replace it 3 times!! Warranty did cover it. Look into your warranty--at that time the boards were $200-$250 each!!
