SOURCE: Kenmore He2 shoots out water from the detergent compartment

After searching the internet we discovered that if you slide your fingers in between the metal drum and rubber seal under the soap dispenser area you may find the problem. We had a sock blocking the water inlet. Problem solved! This machine is going to give us a lot of headaches but thanks to the internet we may be able to continue to save money fixing it ourselves.

FYI, I find if you leave the door open a crack after each wash... you avoid the mold smell as well!

SOURCE: shakes violently during spin

make sure your load is medium to large and mutiple pieces. One large bath mat or towel will cause it not to able to balance the load.
Also there is a service bulletin for excess vibration in these machines.
Read it at servicematters.com tech library, service pointers - Whirlpool Duet Sport and maytag machines (Your Kenmore is made by whirlpool and is a Duet Sport)

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 flashing lights

I had the same problem with it stopping mid cycle and lights flashing. Turns out all i needed to do was clean out the very clogged drain pump filter. it is located just behind the front kick panel. it unscrews and pulls right out. there was a nasty accumulation there. ran great afterwards.

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 front load washer. All cycle lights flashing plus spin and clothes clean lights on.

I'm sure this is probably too late, but hopefully it will help some else. I just had the same problem. First, unplug the power. Then take the lower front panel off and grabbed a bucket. Place the bucket under the large "plug" on your right. This is the drain. Slowly unscrew the drain plug, Hold your nose as it will probably smell. Allow the water and such to drain into the bucket. When you see the blob of wet lint drop into the bucket you will know why the machine refused to work. Make sure you clean the drain plug and screw it back in tightly. Put the lower panel back on and reconnect the power. I hope this resolves your issue.

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.

Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

Bocsh 1400 express f21 keeps flashing


This Bosch looks like a Kenmore HE2, and may be made by the same manufacturer.

In the Kenmore HE2 manual it states:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

If it's not working still, try asking advice at RepairClinic.com . They have helped me in the past, and they have parts too.

Mu washing machine is getting stuck on the rinse cycle. There is no error code coming up, just all of the light blink with the exception of wash and spin. I have unplugged it overnight and it didn't help....


Look under it for a diagnostic manual

You got codes or something there if it blinks

May have a bad control board

Need that service manual to start your testing

HE2 Kenmore Washer stuck on F01 error message and Add Garment light on. Any trouble shooting suggestions?


The F01 error is a communication error and most likely the cause is a bad central control board. You tried to unplug the power and the machine still will not start so next I'd recommend trying to run a diagnostic cycle to verify the operation of the central control.In the image below are the instructions to enter and run the diagnostic routine. If the process is done successfully all of the LED light will come on for 5 seconds then display the last error. Push the same button until the error code ends and all the lights come on again for 5 seconds then the test will start.
If the test runs through okay then the central control unit is most likely okay. If it fails to enter diagnostic then the control has failed and needs to be replaced.
The last thing to try is to check the connections on the control. A loose connector might cause this problem
To see how the control unit  looks please check out this link.

--------
Resolution: Error code F-01 can be caused by a power surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.
To clear and restart the control follow the below listed steps:
  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit into the wall outlet.
  3. Wait for another 30 seconds to allow the control to recognize all components.
  4. Press the Pause, Cancel or Stop button twice to clear the display.
  5. To test operation of the washer,select Drain & Spin cycle, then press and hold the start button until the machine starts.
If the cycle does not start, there may be an internal component failure that requires service by a professional technician.
Note: General information for resolution is based on information provided in question. Please contact a repair technician if problem persist. Call Sears Repair Service 1-800-469-4663

THAT IS WHAT I AM DOING JUST TO HAVE A WORKING WASHER TOO MUCH TO FIX FROM WHAT I AM READING, SO GOING TO BU A NEW ONE ANYTHING BUT KENMORE. gOOD LUCK, HOPE THIS HELPS FOR IMMEDIATE RESCUE.

This error only shows in diagnostic mode, with power off choose any buttons except stop and power, press in intervals 5 seconds on and 5 seconds off until 88 appears and all light light up. If the user panel is faulted F 2 will flash in the display, press the same button you used to start diagnostics to jump to the next error code and once through 88 will flash and diagnostics will start. Sometimes once F2 flashes and the machine has not been repaired it will stick at that mode.
