Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
After all the cloths are washed lets say at 9pm, the next morning there is clean water in it, and there was no water in it the night before...model 110-47511702
The inlet solenoid valve is dirty and doesn't shut off completely so there is a tiny leak over time. Generally this will get worse over time. You can simply turn off the water at the tap after each use or replace the solenoid, pretty cheap part. Some solenoids can be opened and clean the grit out.

try an emptyhot wash with some limescale remover in approx quater of a litre, let it run all the way through the wash then put on another rinse to clear out system. check the next water fill for any debris/lint left.

SOURCE: washer won't drain water or spin
This is a very common description of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually located on the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first, then check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. If you do not wish to order online, take the part number provided by Sears and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part that most carry. The following link explains how to replace the switch:
This is a very inexpensive repair that you can easily accomplish on your own. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
PS This is a common problem experienced by this line of washing machines. To prevent future failures, do not slam the washer lid and do not place any heavy objects on the lid. I'm not saying you're abusing the appliance, I just wanted to give some helpful advice in case you didn't know.

SOURCE: Washer not cleaning clothes
The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.
On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.
Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
Try using powders for 'front loaders'

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.
It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.
