Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite HE4 front loading washer. I bought this washer 2 years & 2 months ago. According to Sears the warranty expired 2 months ago. I was getting a F 02 it would not spin or empty water, so I called sears repair. They told me the electronic board went out in the machine and in the front panel. It was going to cost $1,000 to fix. Any idea how I get my money back out of this machine.

    Already took kick plate off and checked trap. No blockage! Machine has been kept really clean. Tech from sears said it wasn't worth fixing. Said he sees a lot of problems with the electronics on these machines. I was getting ready to pay the $536.00 to repair the electronic board inside the washer, which I have in writing. He hooked it all up when he found out the front panel electronics was messed up also. He checked many things out.

Ya, first question? they said $1000.00 to fix?wow Did the tech give you that in writing?
ok, take off the bottom kick plate and you will see a pump right in the middle. there is a trap there unsrew the cap and get the stuff out of there., word of caution have towels ready cause when you take this off the water will come out. you should get as much water as you can at first.from the tub.you will not get all the water out.
let me know what you find.

Any known issues with the Kenmore Elite He4 Electric Dryer 11085089400?


Besides the thermal fuse, the thermistor, main control board, door locking system and the problems all over youtube and google, the dryer may last you about a year or so. That is if you only do laundry one a year. The HE4's are ****. Have both washer and dryer for about 5 years. I could now be a sears repair man with the amount of knowledge I had to digest while fixing these things. NEVER, NEVER again will I buy kenmore!

I bought the Kenmore Elite ht5 steam from a someone that bought it with a sears account with a 5 year warranty. Now suds F35 error code & sears will not repair it. The reason is that the ownership...


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Not a problem ... Just bought a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer & dryer and read bad evals on Sears.com.....are these good machines, or should I change my order?


I would send it back ASAP, had our Kenmore Elite front loaders for less than 2 years and it has been nothing but trouble, so far it has cost us $200.00 in repair fees and washer still not fixed, expecting another so called Sears expert out tomorrow that will be another $129.00 for just showing up without guaranteeing he will fix anything.i

Kenmore Elite HE3 Front Loading Automatic Washer


Pull the plug and test the plug with a nitelight or lamp. Now try the washer. If the lamp lit and the washer. It appears there are many problems with the controlls of these machines. There is a leamon law for appliences. Sorry I think this is a Vista model made by microsoft and the best bet is to force the mfg. to return your hard earned money because it is defective.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
