My kenmore clothes washer not starting the spin cycle


Check the drain hose before it goes into the drain, if it is full of water. If you can pull the drain hose out of the drain, try to drain it into a bucket. The reason it won't go into spin cycle is that the pressure switch senses to much water in the tub.

Now this can be caused by several things, broken drive belt, bad drive motor and finally a bad pump or a clogged pump. In any caseif you need to look at these parts, disconnect the power cord 1st, then remove the back panel to view all these parts. If you think you have unplugged the pump or drained the water, then plug it in and try another wash cycle.

Is this a front loading washer?

Start/Pause light flashes, won't start. No error code. Pump or hose blockage?


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

What does the trouble code f2 mean for the kenmore elite 4t washing machine?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi,
It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

I have a he2 kenmore front end loader washing machine...it stops mid load and flashes F20


Something is in your pump trap, easy fix. pop open the bottom panel by removing the three screws under it. requires a torx bit or a nut driver. if you can tilt the washer back so the front legs are a foot or 2 off the ground, it will make this a lot easier. once open you will see a twist off cap. before you remove this be prepared for the residual water to eject out when you open it. these can not get all the water out so there is always some, tilting it back will minimise this or putting hose clamps on the pump to tub hose can help but not nesesarry. twist it out and clean it out, also stick your fing into the two holes where the trap is located to see if any coins have gotten stuck. once clean, make sure you line up the trap arrow with the base. then button it back up, good luck

Kenmore Elite flashing codes.


ob means out of balance and ld means lid not closed. so i would guess that you have a washer that is not draining or just needs the clothes moved around.
if you have a plugged pump it will do the same thing. make sure the pump will drain properly and then try it again. if it still goes out then try it with no clothes. that way you know its not hte clothes causing the problem.
recheck the pump and hoses. be sure it will drain the full tub or it wont work right.

Kenmore HE2 flashing lights


had an old pressure switch that I thought was the problem I had from something else a year ago
That was the washer not starting, all kinds of lights
I took the back and top off and reconnected all the plugs.
Had a loose connection somewhere, it worked after that.

I blew into it and put it back on.
The rattleing quit in the pump after it pumped out, while the drum was spinning slow.
Now working ok
