Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

RAT PROBLEMS Rats got into my washer and chewed through the water inlet hose and the clear pressure hose that regulates the fill level. I replaced the inlet hose with a genuine hose. For the clear hose I got a similar hose from a hardware store, same length, approximate i.d. I connected the clear hose to the regulator and heard the valve (open or shut, I don't know which). At the same time, I pinched the hose and connected it to the washer basin. The machine fills with water. There are no leaks, but the washer continues to fill without stopping. What can I do? The machine is a Kenmore 110.92380200, stock #23802.

    As it turns out the clear hosing is very specific. While the hose I picked up at Lowe's was close, but no cigar. Once I got the "official" hose and installed it the machine works like a charm. I've also tried to rodent proof the machine to keep the creature from getting to the hoses.

    I have the same problem with rats getting inside my Kenmore front loading washer - they first chewed through the water pump; had that replaced and about a week later they chewed through another hose that was on the upper part of the washer (inside) - water got into the controls so I am now faced with replacing the washer. Is there any way to rat proof a new one? I have been unable to find any company that says their machines are rat proof.



    TIA.

Why 4E error code keep appearing on my Samsung washing machine


The 4E error indicates that the washer hasn't detected enough water coming into the unit. The problem could be in your incoming water line (low water pressure), the washer hoses, the inlet valves, or the sensors that detect the length of time to reach a specific amount of water in the washer. It can even be caused by having the outlet hose positioned too low in the discharge pipe or sink.

First check the obvious possibilities: make sure that the shut-off valves have been opened. If you hear water running into the washer and then into the discharge plumbing after a few minutes, raise the end of the discharge hose to a level above the washer fill level.

Shut-off the incoming water and remove the washer fill hoses. Place a bucket under the hoses and open the shut-off valves. Check that you have good water pressure; the washer is looking for the tub to fill in about 8 minutes. Then turn off the water. Clean the filters in the hose at the shut-off valves and the ones inside the washer at the inlet valve. You may want to replace the washer fill hoses; some anti-flood hoses will constrict if they detect a leak and limit the water pressure.

If the water flow at the hoses is good and isn't exiting the washer, then the problem is either the inlet valve or the water flow sensor. Does any water reach the tub? If it doesn't, check the inlet valve and make sure that it is getting the proper electrical signal from the control unit. If water is reaching the tub, then the problem in the flow sensing system. Some washers use an air tube that helps check the pressure in the system. If this tube is leaking or clogged, the sensor will give incorrect messages. Other systems have a small switch that moves as the water passes through the inlet valve. This can fail.

There can be other problems that give the same symptoms. If you post the model number of your washer, I may be able to point you to the correct diagnostic steps.

Washer over flows


Discharge pump is clogged or not working or relay isn't working. Locate items w back off and let run if you hear relay click (it's ok) then the pump motor tries You have a clog. If relay does click or motor doesn't try that tells you what it is

No fault code washer will not fill


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

LG WM1814CW washer - doesn't fill with water. Hear a hum when it should be filling with water, but no water and no error codes. I am guessing Valves (F160 and F170). Any thoughts?

Kenmore Washer HE 2plus my machine has an error F 20 won't do anything


The technical details of this fault code are shown in the first image below. This information is valid for most Kenmore HE2+ washers. It is likely that it will apply to your model. If the washer is not filling with any water, check the water supply faucets behind the washer to make sure that they are properly open. If you are using a floodsafe device as shown in the second image on your water supply lines, I recommend replacing this device with normal water supply hoses. The floodsafe device will not work properly on most washers. Turn off the water supply faucets and remove the supply hoses from the connection on the back of the washer. Check the inlet screens on the back of the washer for debris or deposits that could prevent the washer from filling properly. Clean the screens if necessary and carefully replace them after flushing the inlet to the water valves thoroughly with water. (Failure to properly flush the inlet area could result in debris getting past the screens and fouling the inlet water valves.) While the water supply hoses are still disconnected from the back of the washer, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply faucets to check the water pressure and flow from them. If the water supply is inadequate, you may need a plumber to resolve this problem. If the washer still won't fill after checking these issues, then you could have a failure in the solenoid water fill valves for the washer. You could also have a wiring failure or a problem with the electronic control board.

If the washer is filling, your problem would likely be in the water level pressure switch or the air pressure tube between the bottom of the tub and the pressure switch. A wiring failure or control board problem could also prevent the water level from being properly detected. To access the water level pressure switch, you can unplug the washer and remove the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer. Remove these screws and then pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off the top of the washer. The water level pressure switch is normally on the rear of the right side panel of the washer. Check the air pressure hose and wiring connections. If no problems are found, you may need to replace this part.

Water level does not recognize level....does not stop filling


I had the same problem, its the water-fill hose sensor located at the back of the tub. Sometimes it pops off if the tub goes out of balance, (poor design, no clamp on it) so if you can get in there see if the hose is properly fitted over the connector to the tub, happened twice to me, an easy fix, go by a clamp to keep it on.

Water runs but doesn't fill tub and wont spin if put on spin cycl


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.
