If you have a wet-dry vac, put it on the end of the drain hose and **** it out. There may be something blocking the line that you can't see.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!

Had same problem. Followed advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

I believe the SUDS error is in direct relationship to the clogged drain problem. Yes...the error can be generated by the use of too much soap. But, it is also caused by too much air in the drain pump. This is caused by a clog somewhere. A clog in the drain area of the gasket is not going to cause this. The problem is your drain line and/or drain pump. If you click on the link below, I have step-by-step instructions on how to access the drain pump and clean it out.

I have experienced on one occasion where the drain hose coming from the bottom of the wash tub was clogged. This, ironically, was from someone washing a rug that had a ton of sand and dirt in it. I had to remove this hose from the bottom of the wash tub and clean it out. I mention this just in case cleaning the drain pump is not enough.

I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: F35 & SuD error codes on Kenmore Elite Washer

F35 has to do with the pressure switch which is located under the top panel on the back right. It will have a little black hose hooked to it. This happens when SUDS or detergent somehow gets up into it and usually locks unit out. Only solution is to replace pressure switch. You can find the tech sheet behind the bottom front panel usually tape to the back side of that panel or taped to the bottom right side inside unit. Hope this helps

Clothes come out musty


I would put in some bleach and clothes that can handle it without damage and run a wash cycle. Leave the door open when you are done using the machine, or at least un-latched. There are commercial products, but bleach will do the same thing. You have stuff growing on the gizzards inside the drum, and bleach will likely kill them. They like dark & humid places.. guess what... that's your washer with the door kept latched.

Clothes are sopping wet even after doing the spin cycle 3 and 4 times, water is going through hose fine it seems, it a front loader


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water not draining from washer. cannot open door. isnt there just a spin cycle i could go to instead of the entire wash cycle? i have already put it through 2 more cycles hoping the spin would drain...


Hi lauraeuschwa,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

I have a Kenmore 3.5 washer model # 44152. The washer is going through all the cycles but for the final spin it does not spin. Thus leaving the clothes sopping wet. What is wrong?


Is your pump clear? Nothing is in the pump blocking it? Does it drain ok? Check out your pump buy removing the bottom panel..Then check you drain hose where ever it is draining into, make sure drain isnt tp far into drain, or sink becausewater will syphen back into washer...try checking these simple checks first. i think your pump has a screw in type plastic cap. unscrew and check if you have anything in it and nothing is restricting the inpeller. spin the impeller with you finger make sure it spins around freely. you will feel some tension from the magnitation it is getting. but yeah, try these simple checks first and see what happens....

Oasis washer displays code Ld and wont fully drain


LD means long drain. Check to see if there is something clogging your drain hose. If not remove the drain pump from the bottom of the washer tub and clean it out. Also clean the recirculating pump. That should fix it. if not replace the drain pump.
