Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
The drum is drained and dry when I take out the clothes, but after several hours (overnight) there is water in the washer. No blockage in the drain sump and I can hear water draining during the cycle. Water appears to be clean and fresh, not drain water
It appears your dual inlet water valve has failed in this instance. There is either sediment in the valve preventing it from closing all the way - or the poppet is damaged.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
