Kenmore Elite HE3t Steam Front loading Washer

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3t Steam Front Loading Washmachine. The whole reason we purchased this machine was for it's Steam Sanitizing funtion. When we select the ''steam santizing'' option it goes through it's cycle but when the cycle is complete the ''Sanitizing'' light is suppose to illuminate as well as the ''clothes clean light. Our machines ''sanitize'' light does not illuminate but the clothes clean light does.

Also, are the cloeths suppose to feel a little warm after this cycle is complete or cold?

Let me add this is the 2nd machine we have had that does not do it. Help!

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

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.

Kenmore elite he3t front load washer has no power. Replaced ccu, worked for a few minutes then stopped. Unable to power up


I would guess you have a short in the machine somewhere and likely have fried the new CCU also. If you want to and have the ability, you can track down the short and fix that. Then you will probably have to purchase another CCU before it will run. Wish I had better news. Good luck.

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem


We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Kenmore elite he3t steam front loader - 110.4674-2 --- f35


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.
