    Kenmore He4t frontloading machine flashing F 02" problem I have taken the front panel off and checked. I have no blockage. Did find coins, etc. but now problem is so bad, I have to keep my wet vac on hand and start sucking the water out of the resevoir, then the pump will take effect. Used to be able to get a couple of loads before this would happen but now it is all the time, not sure if I need a new pump or what.

I have received the HF error twice in the past year on this machine - Kenmore HE4T. Once it was something caught in the drain pump filter and the 2nd I forgot to turn the water supply back on when fixing the door from and DFL error. On the DFL error I replaced the door lock, door latch and door hinge for $100 in parts saving probably double that in labor. These repairs are fairly simple and the forums are a great source of information on the repairs.

I followed the first set of instructions, and it turned out to be really straightforward. The only difference was that my HE4T only had two screws on the toe panel. Thanks!

My hotpoint aquarius wmf540 keeps beeping 3 times every 10 mins or so. The cycle finishes with no obvious problems. Is this a warning?

Yes your washing machine is trying to tell you something-somethings wrong-are there any flashing lights while the beeps are happening-also do you have the owners manual-this is always a good place to start-cheers Denny

My tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light

Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
