Kenmore HE 1 plus, front loader washer. Put load in and decided to add another item. Now I can't get it to start, or stop. Just flashes with the F-01 on the LED screen. I unplugged, tried the directions in the manual, no help! Any ideas?

Spin is not fast enough for bath mat even with other items in washer. How do you activate spin indepedently?

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. I think what you're referring to..."tub mat will not spin fast enough to dry"... is not an intended function of the washer. I don't know if you purchased these machines yourself or have access to the owners manual/operation guide, but if you do you can verify what I'm telling you. Front load washers ( any washers really, but top loads are a little more forgiving ) are not intended to wash bath mat's or any single items. If washing a single item one must either select a "no spin" or add another garmet/item of equal size or mass to balance the weight of the load, otherwise the unit will not spin to it's potential...if at all. This is an exert from the Kenmore/Whirlpool operating manual... 1. To load washer Open the washer door by pulling on the handle. Sort laundry according to color and type of fabric. Place a load of sorted clothes in the washer. Do not overload washer. Overloading can cause poor cleaning. The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed. Washer door should close easily. Mix large and small items. Avoid washing a single item. Load evenly. Wash small items such as infant socks in mesh garment bags. It is recommended that more than one garment bag be used and that each garment bag be filled with equal amounts of material. Hope this info helps clear this up for you. Let me know how that works, but that should fix the problem. Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa to day for your inquiry. Regards, Macmarkus :)
