H3 Elite front loading washer doesn't spin with small load

When I throw just a few articles in the washer, for instance, on delicate, the washer never spins the item to wring it. It just sits in the washer soaking wet and I have to rerun the washer in spin and rinse cycle. What the hell...

    I'll check the hose. Thanks! You think that would only effect small loads and it wouldn't effect all of the loads?

Where is the filter on the kenmore elite h3 washer


There is not a filter per say, but there is a coin catcher in the pump assembly. remove the bottom panel and it will be right in front.

What does "IE" mean when it attempts spin cycle?


is it IE or LE please confirm it. if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given below This usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes:
1. Press the power button to turn the washer off.
2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on.
3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'.
4. Press start.
The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water.
Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes.
Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting.
Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.

Kenmore elite h4 front load washer throwing error code ''f' During middle of cycle i have to push pause and cancle and drain and spin to get it to work


I just fixed this problem in my kenmore washer today. You need to take out the three small screws on the bottom of the front panel. You will need a star shaped screw driver. The panel will fall off when the last screw is removed. After taking off the panel, you will see a large round piece in the middle that should be white; take this piece and turn it to remove the filter. Your filter is most likely clogged with small laundry items or lint and dirt. Remove the blockage and the washer will work great again. This is frustrating, so my wife and I are going out to buy some netting bags for washing small items. Make sure you have a towel under the drain before you open it.

Before doing this though, take a second and reach up under the rubber gasket that circles the inside of the washer door. Your blockage could just be in this area. Our washer had both areas blocked.

Hope this helps

Kenmore Elite H3 control buttons - some work some don't


The diagnostic function will not help you if your user interface board (UIB) is acting up because to put into diagnostic you have to select drain spin, then the no spin option, and hit the prewash button 4 times.

It sounds like your UIB is the problem.

Leaks water onto floor in front of washer after spin cycle, help


open the door though, put your hand around the rubber boot assy, run *** all around looking for small tears, and or holes, if so replace it. only other thing to do is remove the lower access panel and watch it spin a load and youll be able to detect where te waters coming from

F/DL means the door lock.  If you take the bottom panel off (there are 3 screws), you can reach up and pull down on a lever to release the lock.  Next you need to take off the top of the washer (there are 3 screw on the back).  ONce you have the panel removed, you can see the wires and where they plug in at the back right area.  If you just jiggle them, you can get it to work again.  I am doing this right now until I can get a new computer.  My neighbor has a front loading washer of a different brand and experienced the same problem I am having now.  She is the one who told me how to fix it.
