Softner is dispensed in Wash cycle


in the top of your soap draw compartment is a lever that switches the water jets over ( for instance on the main wash the jet arm is directed in the main wash compartment which will take away your main wash powder then it moves the jet are to the sofner compartment on the final rinse ) the jet arm somtimes jams and needs cleaning and the small holes above your draw compartments clog with lime build up the thing to do is take out your draw clean the inside at the top where the holes are and take the top off your machine there are two screws at the back top you will see the little ark on your soap draw it will have a return spring on it gently move it from side to side this will clear any obstuction make sure that it will spring back clean any line around the arm ( make sure you switch unplug your machine before you remove the top)

Water is draining out the bottom of my unit, and I do not know how to drain the water out.


Ther is a drain plug on the back of the unit. I believe it's on the left side, down near the floor. Put a shallow sided pan, large enough to handle 2 cups of water, under it and unscrew the cap. The water will drain into the pan. Be Sure the Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF & the unit is unplugged before attempting this.

My machine keeps filling and draining. I've had


Hi.

If the machine keeps filling and draining, then there is overflow detected. Rather than going for the control board you should have checked inlet, drain system and pressure switch.

Check the drain hose height setting. If hose is not well placed you get water back inside the tub. Do a test with drain hose down in a bucket. Check the drain pump filter. Access filter housing and remove blockage if any. If front load machines he pump filter is accessed using a panel located at the bottom in front side of the appliance. With top loader you access the pump from underneath or from the back.

Check if the inlet valve or the hose is allowing water inside the appliance because of an internal leak. This will result in overflow being detected.

Check the pressure switch. This is the device that detects water level.
The pressure switch is near to the control panel . It is a round shaped plastic part that is connected to wires and to a long thin rubber hose going inside the tub. Clean the hose or replace the pressure switch.

Regards.

The water drain plug is located on the rear. On the bottom left edge next to the cord keeper. You'll need a pan that will fit under the drain hole, before you unscrew the drain plug. Which has a plastic handle.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

Water keeps on spilling out the back of the ARP 1000 ES Unit. I don't know how to empty the water container that must be located on the inside


The drain plug for draining accumulated water is located on the back of the unit's lower left side (as you're facing the back just to the left of the cord keeper. Unplug it, disconnect the exhaust hose and roll it to a drainage area. Unscrew the plug and let it drain. Securely replace the drain plug when draining is complete.

Hope this helped you.

Error code F21 - thanks for your help


The F21 error code is an indication that the unit has too long of a drain out condition. If the control calls for the unit to drain & the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop & flash the F21 error code. I would recommend checking the drain pump & pressure switch circuit.

Clear pump of debris. Tilt machine. Take off front panel. Unscrew large white drain plug. Remove debris.

Unplug from power source...remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw wirh 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel)...open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clokwise, lookout! lots of water will gush out... back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump)...re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. That will help get rid off the debris.

It can be done if you are patient and able to figure out how the plastic thing comes apart. Good luck!

Final spin cycle for kenmore 417.40042990


This is an interesting problem. How long does it have to sit before you can get it to spin? Can you let it go through the cycle and then immediatly put it into spin and it work? This machine will not spin until the pressure switch senses the water has drained. So you could have a slow drain, a clogged pressure hose, or faulty switch. A clogged hose or faulty switch would usually cause it to fill with more water than normal also. A slow drain is most likely, check the drain hose when it is draining and see if it is putting out a strong flow or just slowly draining. I think you will find it to be slow. This will cause it to take up all or most of the spin time trying to drain the water. If it is slow draining, check the pump for a sock or some obstruction. If the drain is good, remove the top and remove the rubber hose from the pressure hose and blow through it. You should be able to blow through it easily. A restricted pressure hose will cause the machine to think it has water in it after it has drained.
