I had a leak in the same area.. I called Sears service and they came out and told me I had a hole in the nylon tub. The machine was 13 months old the warranty would only cover the part, not the labor (which was more than a new machine). I removed the access panel below the door (3 torx head screws) to get access. I ended up locating the area where the hole was by running the machine through a cycle. I marked the hole with a marker so I could find it again and let the area dry overnight. The next day I roughed the surface around the hole with a medium grit sandpaper and used a marine epoxy to patch the hole....so far no problems (14 months.)

I do have mold issues with this washer and would never buy a HE machine again...and have not been overly impressed with Sears appliances either....Own 5...washer, dryer, ref, stove and dishwasher. I have had problems with 3 of the 5

I have no way of knowing if this is where your leak is ...but hope so because it was an easy and inexpensive fix for me.... that so far is still working :)

Kenmore elite he3t where is the lint trap?


Raise up your washer slightly or feel for 3 screws right under the front, bottom. Unscrew these and pull down - you will find the lint trap. Be prepared for water, and since the model is 2002 - immense junk too!
Pl say so if helped!!

Where can I find a diagram to show me how to unclog my drain pump on My kenmore elite he4t washer


Hello,
Their are unfortunity no video or drawing online that i know of,i have tried to find some to show people how to do that. However this is how you do it. Remove the small front panel below the main one where the door is at the bottom of that panel under it their will be 3 screws (one one each end&one in the center),the pump will on the right side,unscrew the big white knob justa little bit and have some towels to catch the water that will come out.Once all the water is out unscrew completly and pull it out.

Kenmore elite HE5t front load washer-turned on and filled w water


Pressure Switch failure - remove the hose at the top of the machine, and blow in it to clear moisture/buildup.
If not - replace the Pressure switch.



This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Kenmore Elite front loader washer will not drain or spin out water error code F2.


Sounds like your pump is clogged. Take off the lower front panel via 3 ws on the bottom. Get a buch of towels, thiers gonna be water. Right in center front thier will be a white twist knob, about 3 inche in diamter. Unscrew it, this is when the water is gonna come out. If there is a secondary wall, pull it straight out with a pair of pliers. Clean out the pump, also check the little hole to the right leading into the impeller, make sure its clean. Finally put it back togther and try it out, thanks Dave www.washermd.com

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer


set the washer to fill. open the lid and depress the lid switch. might be in the rear of the cover or on the side. watch to see where the water level comes to. once the tub is filled, the water height switch operates the timer motor for the different cycles.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top


hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.
