Open the top cover, disconnect wire harness to pressure switch (located right side of washer) start washer, if washer starts to fill stop washer immediately and replace pressure switch.

First off check your incoming water supply.. also make sure your not using stainless steel hoses manufactured withthe name "flood safe"" big issue with these hoses shutting off premature(they have a built in shut off check valvewithin the hose itself, .. replacethehoses if you have these. if not and you have good incoming water supply, soundslike yo may have a faulty inlet water valve.although usually onyl no hot or no cald the fact you haveno either water temp, thats odd

    if you have an electrical meter, hers what you can do, if you removeth main top (3 screws along back of unit) youll see the waterinlet valve, ifyou set machine for a cold/cold wash, disconnect the wires fron the cold water valve( standing in front of machine lookin inside the cold water is on left) place you electrical probesin hte connectors andstart machine, you should see a voltage reading of 110-120 volts, when the machine calls for water.( within the first min) if you have that voltage present it means you have a bad water valve. if no voltage possible bad machine control board.

SOURCE: f21 code on kenmore he2 plus

Clean the filter in the pump behind the bottom panel,but remember it's full of water,If it's on a pedestal you can take the pump loose from the mounting pull it out a little and put a small pail or bucket under it before you open the trap.if it isn't on a pedestal it's a bit more challenging unless your in a basement with a floor drain. Open it very slowly and let the water drain a little at a time don't take it all the way out or you'll be in for a flood....good luck

SOURCE: i have the kenmore HE2 front loader. when you turn

there is a water inlet on the right side of the detergent filling cup to flush out the dry detergent. take out the fill and it is midway back on the right(little rubber hose) once you locate that take the top panel off and follow the hose, should lead to a silinoid. this is most likely sticking open, or the line is broken and dumping water into the washer cavity instead of in the detergent cup. hope that gets you started in the right direction.

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 Kenmore HE2 Plus wont start and it gives code F-21...... the door locks but the washer wont fill up with water.. then it faults out. What can I do?

F21 error means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes; this will turn off the water valves. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. If errors still remains then please check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Disassemble the washer by removing the back from the washer and check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is draining. Also inspect the pump filter for foreign objects. Before disassembling remember to turn off the power and disconnect the washer. If it still doesn't help then there is an issue with the pump and you'll need to replace it. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washer fills and drains at the same time.

Check for congealed soap in the Air Bell which is at the other end of the pipe for the pressure switch

Not filling to wash

The drain hose is very long. Check to make sure it is not pushed too far down into to drain in wall. If so pull it out as to prevent washer for syphoning water.
