Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

Clean LED Light does not come on

I have a Kenmore HE3 (about 6 1/2 years). Initially there have been a few problems but all were resolved under warranty and it has been running fine since. In the past month, the "Clean" signal light has not been coming on. It seems that the clothes are getting clean. the machine fills, drains, and spins fine. The clothes do not have a residue or smell to them and I have been running the 2nd rinse cycle just in case. Is there anyway to check if its just the light, or if the lack of signal is a bigger problem?

My Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 water softener tome light will not stop blinking. How do I reset it

It's been 10 years since I worked at EcoWater, but the Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 shouldn't have changed much. The brine tank light shouldn't blink at all. It should light for 4 minutes and then go out if you leave the door open if I remember correctly. How old is your softener and does it have a light bulb or an LED to light up the brine well? It's most likely a damaged control board that's creating your problem. You'll have to contact Sears for a replacement.

(EcoWater Systems LLC is the OEM [Original Equipment Manufacturer] of water softeners for Sears Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool, Morton Salt, EcoWater Systems dealers and a few others.)

Faulty Reading? Brake Fluid Level, ABS and tracking system warning light

If your hub (wheel bearing) is starting to go bad, the sensor can fault as well for the ABS (stabilitrack, etc) as it is all inside the hub assembly. Whatever the issue, once it is resolved, the light will go out. A scan should tell you which wheel is throwing you the code.
The instrument cluster can be taken out pretty easily (2 trim screws and 4 on cluster itself I think) and the bulbs are easy to put out and replace. My cluster was replaced under warranty for 1 burnt out bulb and got a reman that crapped out after a year now out of warranty.

Our wii keeps shutting off

Wii Console Turns On, But Has No Power Light

The power LED on the system does not come on, but the system still powers on and plays


If the Wii Console is still working normally, it is likely that the power LED is broken.

This issue will remain limited to the Power LED, and will not get any worse.

Unless the system is having other problems, continue using the console regularly for a few weeks to determine whether this interferes with the enjoyment of game play.


Situation Not Resolved:

If, after using the system for awhile, the Power LED not coming on is too distracting, the Wii Console does carry a one-year warranty.

We are happy to inspect and, if necessary, fix the system at no charge within the warranty period. To start the repair process, click here.

What is the sequence to reset our kenmore 16052


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Despite being plugged in and the green LED light on, no display on printer

I have the same model (about a year old) but there are no lights visible on the back of my printer (neither red or green). Have you contacted the Lexmark tech advice website about this problem? They may take a few days to respond but there are numerous possibilities in trying to locate the fault (probably in the power circuitry) and it might have to take it to a repair shop to get it tested (if it is not under warranty).
