Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Kenmore HE4T washer won't rinse. Valves open to fill the wash cycle and then it runs through that fine and drains and spins. When it starts the rinse cycle the valve buzzes but doesn't seem to open, like it is not getting enough current to open it. Pull the leads off the valve and the buzzing stops. Buzzes for a bit then starts flashing a code F H I think.
It does this on any type cycle, gets to rinse and stops. Cleaned the Trap and filter, checked all the hoses. Sounds to me like a relay isn't working properly. Maybe I should check the voltage to the valve during wash and rinse to see if it is the same.
An HF Code is a Water Inlet Problem- No or Insufficient Water Supply.
Press Pause/Cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Then, unplug the washer.
Run down the list again:
Make sure faucets are completely turned on.
Make sure the fill vavles (screens where water enter machine) aren't clogged.
Make sure the hoses aren't kinked, etc.
Plug the machine back in. Try another cycle. If the problem still occurs, You may need to replace your Water Fill Valve. Let me know if you need any further assistance.
