My washer keeps pausing during the cycle

Hi claire64 - Usually when "PAU" displays on the screens, it indicates that the unit thinks that the door is not securely latch when you started the cycle, or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume washer. If proves to be ineffective, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and resume cycle. If fault reoccurs, then it typically means that the unit either has a faulty door latch assembly or a communication error from the control board. Since there are cost differences in parts, it is always a good idea to have a service tech properly diagnose your appliance.

Washing machine has a funny smell and has a code of pau13

"PAU" usually will display if the cycle has been interrupted and will include the estimated cycle time, please ensure that the door on washer lock is tightly engaging. If the unit is producing a smell you may try the information below to assist in resolving this issue.

Spray the interior of the front of the washer with a kitchen cleanser and allow it to soak into the seal's small ridges.

Use cotton swabs to get between the edges of the seal and remove the built-up dirt and debris. Use as many swabs as necessary in order to completely remove the grime. Spray the top of the washer with cleanser, including the cups for the detergent and fabric softener, along with the bleach compartment.

Wipe the cleanser off with a rag to remove all of the debris and lint that has built up. Add 2 cups of bleach to the washer's bleach compartment and close the lid.

Turn the washer on to the clean cycle; if your washer does not have this option, turn to a regular wash cycle. Allow the washer to run the entire cycle on hot, with a cold rinse, if possible. Wipe out the inside of the washer with your rag and cleaner to make sure there is no bleach left from the wash cycle.

Keeps saying PAU

The PAU, or pause, error usually means that the washing machine cycle was interrupted and was not restarted properly. If you try to modify the cycle or start a new one before the first cycle is complete, the PAU error will appear on the display. If the washer was stopped midcycle and not restarted, the cycle must be canceled or completed before a new selection can be made. Push "Start/Pause" to allow the current cycle to finish before making a new selection, or push "Cancel" to stop the current cycle

I have the Kenmore front load washer HE2. How do I use the clean washer cycle.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

In order to perform a "clean" on the HE2 is as follows...Read these instructions completely before beginning the cleaning process.
**If necessary, the cleaning cycle may be interrupted by pressing STOP. This will stop the cycle. A RINSE/SPIN cycle must then be run to thoroughly rinse the remaining bleach from the unit. Failure to do so will cause damage to the unit and clothing added to the next cycle.**

Begin procedure

1) Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.

2) Be sure the door is closed.

3) Open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.

NOTE: Do not add any detergent to this cycle. Use of more than 2/3 cup (160 mL) of bleach will cause product damage over time.

4) Be sure dispenser drawer is closed.

5) Select the CLEAN WASHER cycle.

6) Press START.

NOTE: The basket will rotate, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue. The machine will not fill, but the basket will rotate while the washer runs a short sensing cycle. This will take approximately 3 minutes.

7) The cycle will determine if clothing or other items are in the washer. a) If no items are detected in the washer, it will proceed to step 8. b) If any items are detected in the washer, all cycle lights will flash and "rL" or "F/34" will be displayed. Associated LED status lights will remain lit. The door will then unlock. Press STOP to cancel the failure code. Then repeat steps 1, 2 and 6 to start the cycle again.

8) Once the cycle has begun, allow the cycle to be completed.

9) After the cycle is complete, leave the door open, slightly, to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

Good Luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

My washer stops in the middle of the cycle and displays F-1 and after I have to set it on the rinse / drain cycle to complete. Today for the first time it also displayed 5d at the end of the cycle.

5d or Sd means too much detergent was used. Try the following

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
