Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite HE3

We found lots of water on the floor and the machine filled with clean water to the top of the door. We had not used the washer for a few days and we leave the door open when not it use. We have no children or pets who could have messed with it and the door was open, how could it have filled with water?

THE PROBLEM YOU HAVING IS A VERY COMMON ONE THAT WE EXPERINCE BACK HOME.YOU COULD HAVE ONE OF TWO THINGS THAT COULD BE CAUSING THAT PROBLEM.FIRSTLY YOUR PRESSURE METER WHICH CONTROLS THE WATER FLOW AND CUTS THE WATER OFF WHEN THE LEVEL IS CORRECT COULD BE FAULTY.SECONDLY THERE IS A PIPE WHICH IS CALLED THE SUMP HOSE COULD BE BLOCKED WITH OLD SOAP AND DIRT THAT COULD ALSO OBSTUCT THE AIR FLOW TO THE PRESSURE METER.HAVE THOSE TWO THINGS CHECKED OUT.GOOD LUCK

Why does my Kenmore Elite HE3 fill with water when it's off


The water valves are leaking usually from grit in the seat of the valve. They are a pair and can be easily replaced.

Sears washer elite he3 fills back up with water when off


You have to shut your wall inlet pipe after your wash is over. If the leak persists you only have to change the inlet valve, which you can do yourself, see internet for spares quoting your washer number, model. It is good to keep the valve closed when the machine has finished it's wash.

For unlocking hold down "end of cycle" button at right side of panel for 3 - 5 seconds. The door remains locked when there is water in the machine, it does not want to wet your floor. Today's machines are smart. Helped?

F error code "kenmore top load" washer oasis he3


Hi
LF means Long Fill, this error flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. Check whether water supply is connected and turned on. Make sure the hose is not blocked and hose screen is clear. If so make sure pressure hose connection to machine/motor control is fine. Also check the continuity of water inlet valve, use a multimeter to check the continuity. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water seeps into my Kenmore Elite HE3 washer went is not in use. Does anyone else have this problem?


You are going to have to replace the water inlet valve. Since it's filling after the end of the wash the pressure switch is not going to detect the fill. The valve is not closing properly. It's an easy fix, remove the top and the valve is right there, te part number i think is 8181694
