Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

I need to cancel a washing cycle in the middle of the cycle.

The Delay button is blinking and I can't get the washer to proceed with cycle.  I pressed cancel (unlock) button so that I could check some contents and now I can't get the load to continue.  I would like to either cancel and start over or continue but I can't get the machine to start again.

Usually pressing PAUSE/CANCEL twice cancels the cycle and shuts it off allowing you to then re-start the cycle. If not try unplugging it and see if it resets to allow you to start cycle again.

I was getting the F H error code on my washer. I hit cancel twice to clear the code to see of a cycle restart would remedy. Now the wash cycle is stuck on 45 min. remaining & the cancel button is no...


The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washing machine is an indicator that there is a problem with incoming water. When there is little water coming into the machine, the FH code will appear and the washer will stop. There are a couple of common problems you can check while you are resetting the FH error code. You will need to remove the power supply to the washer to reset the code.

  • 1 Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower right of the wash cycle selector.

  • 2
    Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.



  • 3 Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.

  • 4
    Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.

  • 5
    Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.

    My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


    Hi


    The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
    Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

    First I made sure the detergent dispenser door was closed. That did not work. Then i made sure that the dispenser was clean, by running water thru it. That did not work,. Then I turned the dial to hand wash and pushed the start button. That worked. Delay light did not turn on. Then i turned the setting to the proper wash cycle and pushed the start button. Clothes are being washed now.

    How to cancel delay start


    Press the Delay Start button several times until the displayed delay start time is cleared or reads "00". Unplug the machine or flip the circuit breaker to the OFF position for at least half an hour or so to forcibly reset the control if pressing the Delay Start button does not alter or clear the displayed delay start time.

    I hit cancel in the middle of a cycle and now it keeps saying F1


    From the maytag website: 

    To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel twice.

    If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:
    Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
    Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

    Washer will not start on any cycle. Any position


    It may be the lid switch? If the lid isn't shut, then on most models the machine won't start.

    Anymore queries, please post and I will try to help you.

    Frigidaire F/L Washer - Delay Start will not reset?


    I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:

    PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS.
    The four lights above the START button will begin to flash.
    Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN".
    Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button.
    This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.

    IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.

    Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!

    Kenmore HE3 blink the light on delay dosn`t works no botton


    Press "end of cycle" button to clear the screen. Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

    Rate me pl.....if helped.
