I have a Kenmore Elite Washer- Total Care System and it is not spinning. What do I do to fix it?


Hi.

Check if there is drain blockage. That will result in cycle not advancing to spin. To check drain system, check first the drain hose at the back and then access drain filter in front.

If there is no drain problem, check pressure switch and lid switch.

Does not want to drain the water after washing circle


Hi.

Start checking the drain hose at the back, and the hose attached to the drain pump, located at the bottom of the appliance. After that access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch. Also check the lid is closing well. Those are the only easy fixes.

The first parts to check are door latch and drain system.

The timer performs an additional check on the door latch before advancing to spin. The door switch it is tested by jumping its contacts, or by reading impedance to check if the switch is opening and closing the circuit (you will need a multimeter).

About the drain system,
if the machine does not drain, then the cycle will not advance to spin.

The electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle. If there is a drain problem, then the machine will not spin.


The first step will be accessing the drain pump.


Kenmore top loaders' washer pump is accessed from the bottom side of the appliance.
Get ready to collect the water that will come from inside the tub.

Check also the drain hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.

If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.

Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.

Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

How do you get to the drain filter on a kenmore elite he3 washer to clean it?


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader to clean the drain pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

MY 25062500 Kenmore Elite spins and clicks but won't drain.


I followed the advice from one of your postings about the Calypso pump, leaning the washer back and removing the bottom access panel. (Be sure to disconnect AC power first!!!). Heeding the warning about "lots of water" -maybe 10-15 gallons!!!-I removed the back access panel and loosened the drain hose, then I put a pie plate beneath it to pool the H2O as it rushed out, cranked up the shop vac undid the hose and let it rip. I filled my shop vac 3 times!). Then I tipped the washer back removed the the pump which is on the right, opened it up and cleaned out the impeller. It works like a champ now. Thank you for your help!!

Try this first.

Washer won't drain or spin
Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96" (2.4
m) above the floor?
Is your voltage low?
Check electrical source or call electrician. Do not use an
extension cord.
Is the "SUD" routine active?
Cycle will complete once extra suds are removed.
Is the load balanced?
A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.

Leaking // bleach/fabric softener dispener isnt emptying


Stara, sounds like you have a couple of issues going on here. On the model you posted there was a service flash on the dispensor. They redesigned it to provide an additional air gap for release. There was also a flash on the bleach hose splitting and leaking. The service flash numbers are 26-747 for the despensor and 26-746 for the hose leak. It almost sounds like your transmission is not going into it's nuetral drain. After completeing the agitation, it should drain for about 90 seconds before spinning. This would be a gearcase problem. The gearcase is covered for a period of 5 years, part only. You might want to check where you bought this unit and see if the parts are covered under warranty. Including the dispensor and hose. You would have to pay the labor..Hope this info helps
