Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Washer problem After loading machine to wash, it suddenly stopped spinning. There was a constant beeping sound and the display screen switching from "H" to "F". I've misplaced my manual, so I am not sure what is causing the trouble. I stopped it entirely twice and started it over & it happened both times Thank you

Re: washer problem

Unplug the machine and check the "pintrap" (there is a plug that will catch small items so the dont foul up the washer) It should be in the front of the washer, and have a trap door look, Be AWARE that you WILL release a flood of water by opening this trap door.
Good Luck!

Does the machine pump water out ? Open the back panel and see if motor is running ? In case motor is running, check that belt is OK. Let me know with your results and I will do my best to assist you to solve your problem, Good luck !!!

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Washer will not go through spin cycle just puts water in tub then will constantly beep

Hi just read your posting.When the machine stops and beeps an error code will appear.In the models with an LCD screen it will tell you what the code is.On machines without an LCD screen a series of lights will light up. The lit lights will be in a row of 8 lights.Starting from the left to right which lights are lit when the machine beeps?Is it the 2nd and 4th or the 3rd and 6th ----etc----?Please reply with additional information on the error code and I can help you rectify this fault.

Maybe the machine is telling you that your load is uneven, When going through a spin cycle it will detect if the load is too heavy on one side. Just open the door and spread the load evenly. good luck.

It looks like the door switch was not making because the door is defective. Also the switch may just be bad.
