Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem. This could also be a cracked board. This happened to me.

I found when mine doesn't drain there is a sock blocking the drain holes. Open the door and pull out the rubber gasket at the bottoma nd there should be around a half a dozen holes. Good luck!

SOURCE: removing front panel from kenmore elite HE-3 front load washer?

If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I can not switch the water temp on my kenmore elite front load washer

I don't know about your problem specifically, but my washer wouldn't click on. After I set the cycle and pushed start, it just clicked but not on. It turns out that the mother board wires have a loose connect at that particular spot. The service man, not a Sears since they couldn't make it there for a month, unplugged the machine, opened the lid (screws on the top back) and pulled out and re plugged some wires. When he tried to start it again, it worked perfectly. Occasionally it will do the same thing, so I UNPLUG the machine, take the back off and wiggle the wires (I know which ones they are by now), put the lid back on, plug in, and wala, she works.
Like I said, this doesn't address your problem specifically, but it seems the wires in the mother board tend to rattle loose. I hope this is an easy fix for you!! I was relieved. Sears may have sold me a new mother board at the tune of $??? That service call was a year ago and, although it is sometimes annoying, I haven't had to purchase any parts.

Kenmore front load won't drain

Try this, on the access panel below the door(panel that goes across the front of the washer) remove the attaching screws at the bottom corners and pull the panel off, you should see a round,white plastic cap with finger hold bar across the middle of it, unscrew the cap by turning it counter clockwise, pull it towards you to open the trap,clean the filter trap out completely and reverse the order you took it apart to put it back togrether, try running the machine as normal. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Kenmore front loader washer model 11042822201 drain and spin

Based on what you said about clicking noise from pump and pump getting hot (this pump is liquid cooled-sealed) I would recommend replacing the pump first then the control board. Board is located on top right front corner, not inside console area, simply slide the top back to see this. unit slides back to unmount. however as I said before this code did not exist and usually means bad board and this is common on whirlpool made machines. you do not need buy this from sears, use sears for part numbers these are whirlpool numbers.

Kenmore Front Load Washer 417.44152400 lights up, no activity

Find the button on your panel with a 'key' symbol. Press & hold this down till the lock light goes off. Or

Hold down the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the lock light goes off. Or
Press and hold down "end of cycle"
Pl. rate & tell me what did it - it is important.

Oasis Washer 110.27082601 Power issue

cj, the spark is normal, just a cap on the board discharging. I had one with the same problem and it turned out to be the touch panel. There is a tech sheet on the inside of the front panel. Pop the top to get it and it should show you how to check the touch panel. back.

Kenmore front load tumble action washer

Snaggs, If your model number begins with 417 it could be a couple of issues. Start with the drain pump. Remove the bottom panel and see if the pump is clogged with coins or debris. It will be on the right. Check the pump impeller. Have a bunch of towells handy as you will have a lot of water coming out at you. When you drop the bottom panel you will be able to see if the belt is on in back. If this does not clear up the problem, more than likley it will be in the motor control board. back.
