Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore HE2 #1104751. Overflows as it is just beginning to fill with water

The machine leaks water from the dispenser unit as it is trying to fill the machine with water. it is like it is plugged up, but if a small bit of water is left it will drain into the machine, I have turned the water pressure down, but it still overflows. HELP My 2 year old washer is dong the same thing. I had a technician come out and look at it and there is a piece of clothing between the inner and outer drums and it is also clogging the hose that lets water into the drum, so it pours out under the detergent dispenser.

The technician (not from Sears) says it will cost $450 to replace the drums and that I should scrap the washer.

He suggested that I might be able to remove the lip seal and if I am real lucky I might be able to pull the garment out, but he did not think it was likely.

He also said that this would be an easy fix with a top loader and tha I should buy a top loader!

    After looking around on FixYa I found others who had problems with socks or underwear getting stuck between the drums. So, I pulled back the seal and found where some of the clothing was sticking out, I then pulled it all out. It was a tank top. I put everything back together (the repair technician had partially disassembled the washer to diagnose the problem) and now it works perfectly!

    I had the same symptoms. I was able to reach in a pull out a chewed up sock between the drum and the intake. I only had to take the front panels off (about 8 or 9 screws) to be able to reach up (needed to remove the main front panel to get the door away from the drums. Seems to be working now. Thanks!

Unfortunately - some repairs are expensive (labor wise) and not financially sound to repair.

Hello sir,i have a kenmore series 90 washer & dryer.this specific machine has top dispensing detergent/bleach&softner.when it becomes time for the softner to be dispensed on the re-fill the machine...


PLease check the hose that goes from the INLET VALVE to the dispensing system cup on your washer. This hose probably has a hole or the plastic dispensor is cracked and therefore leaking.
The inlet valve is working and when the time comes the water goes to the dispensing cup, so the system is working it is just the hose, dispensing cup or both.

Our Washer is overflowing through the dispenser drawer


water out of the soap drawer could be a multitude of things, start with removing the drawer and checking for blockage in the pipe from the drawer to the drum, next try turning down the water pressure a little sometimes that can help, or has the machine filled up totally till it overflows, that is a blocked pressure switch pipe, start with looking for the blockage first, work with safety unplug if removing lid etc. rate me if i have helped, thank you

He2 leaking from detergent dispensor


Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.
