Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I get an F-02 prompt when doing laundry. Manual indicates this is a plugged drain although there has been a trickle of water draining from hose. I took hose off & cleaned it & even took top of machine off & cleaned the internal drain hose as much as possible using hot water & vinegar but it will only go so far, I'm assuming there is a backflow prevention drain. I am now trying to run through a load on Extra Hot water to see if that will work to clean from washer side. If this doesn't work, any other suggestions?
Sounds like your pump is clogged. Take off the lower front panel via 3 ws on the bottom. Get a buch of towels, thiers gonna be water. Right in center front thier will be a white twist knob, about 3 inche in diamter. Unscrew it, this is when the water is gonna come out. If there is a secondary wall, pull it straight out with a pair of pliers. Clean out the pump, also check the little hole to the right leading into the impeller, make sure its clean. Finally put it back togther and try it out, If you get me a model # i can get you a schematic, should start with 110,thanks Dave www.washermd.com
