Re: washing machine not working

I just had the same problem. In my case, a pen cap was stuck in the impeller of the drain pump and prevented it from working. To access the drain pump remove the lower kick panel on the washer by removing (3) Torx drive screws. Make sure you get the water out of your tub before working on the pump or it will spill out on the floor. The pump is front & center. First check the clean-out filter for blockage by turning the big knob on the front of the pump. If that doesn't appear to be the problem, you can take the pump out by removing (1) screw and disconnecting (2) hoses and the electrical connector. The pump itself consists a white housing and a black motor assembly. Remove the motor assembly by removing (3) screws. This is where you will see the impeller and and item that may be preventing it from turning. Besides dealing with the water, the most difficult part of repair is reconnecting the hoses using the hose clamps. Best of luck! RDam

Re: washing machine not working

Sounds like a drain problem. Mine has done that several times and the owner's manual suggests that it's the drain....clogged, improperly installed....we've checked both and they are both fine. Now I get F dL and it won't drain or unlock the door. GL!

Kenmore HE3 2plus wont finish cycle

I'm not saying you don't have a problem. But just to be clear. You do understand that the last minutes on these machines can vary. The machine senses certain conditions in clothing, water discharge, etc. So sometimes the "1 min left" indication can stretch into many minutes. In theory, at least, it's possible your machine just needs to be left alone until it finishes whatever it's doing. However, one would think that any issues not resolved in 10 - 20 min are an indication of a problem. So i guess that's my next question, did you wait long enough? Keep in mind i am not a kenmore expert.

If your PreWash is flashing then you have a pressure problem. You can dry using a washer machine cleaner or doing a hot cycle with white vinegar. If that doesn't help the electronic would have to be changed.

Washer stops with 3 more minutes on spin sycle, then stops, flashes F and adds more minutes to the cycle while beeping.

Find the clean out (usually have to remove the bottom panel) there will be a lot of junk and water that comes out so be prepared. Once you clean it out it will finish the happend to our GE front load and this solved the problem. Hope this works.

Kenmore HE2 won't finish spin cycle

you have blockage in you drain plug. to solve this problem you'll have to remove the lower front panel of your machine by removing the 3 (1/4") screws on the vary bottom of the machine. once the panel is removed you'll see a 1 1/2" white PVC drainage plug. turn the inner plug to the left in till open. (WARNING ALL THE WATER IN THE DRUM WILL DRAIN THOUGH THIS PLUG) remove debris likes socks or everything that's there replace the panel and your all set.
