    This is the Dryer not the washer.

    Finally figured it out. It was the metal clip that holds the lint screen in place. It fell off. I pulled it out with a magnet and just left it off.

The screen is more than likely stuck due to lint buildup. try gently prying it up.

    I clean it before everyload and always have, weekly I brush it out with one of those long brushes. I tried pulling on it vigorously but didn't want to break something. Could a drawstring get caught in there and cause this?

  • Skip Billings Jan 10, 2013

    Yep it could. Try a very thin bladed knife or a razor balde and slide it down and into the the front and back of the filter drawing it across both areas

  • Deb Owens Jan 10, 2013

    OK, I'll give it a try tonight, THX.

SOURCE: I have a he2 kenmore front end loader washing

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

My Kenmore HE2 front load washer when I go to start a load of clothes it's making a humming sound and not filling up with water?


Either one of your water valves isn't working properly, or the lines have sediment restricting the volume of water . What I would do is turn the water to the machine off and remove the water lines and make sure they aren't filled will calcium, etc. and look in the water valves where the hoses connect because that are, which has a screen, may be full of nastiness. If both those are good then the water valve solenoid(s) are stuck and won't open. The humming sound you hear lets you know the rest of the machine is working because the sound is generated by power being applied to the valve by the control.

My washer did fill, but won't spin or drain now and the door won't open


Hi tragz,

If it can't drain, it won't spin. There may be something preventing the pump from draining in the Pump filter. You will need to clean it.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do it:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER
