    Thanks for your help...the pump wasn't draining water due to blockage , an undergarmet had actually got sucked through the hole in tub, which wouldn't allow the water to be pumped out fasr enough.

    Washer continues to fill. I have tried some cycles and there is only drain and spin good. The others cycles don't stop filling.

    This washer will not start the cycle at the point it fills. No main drive motor is ever detected. a F6e2 is generated by the computer.

    The washer just stopped. It powers on, but it will not turn. I also tried it on the spin cycle and does nothing.

SL is a suds lock code it can be caused by the drain pump not draining the water, too much detergent, non HE detergent, or extra heavy loads, try running it empty, if code persits it is a computer failure

Kenmore Front Load Washer won't complete cycle F06

Have you cleaned your machine lately? They make an in wash boost- it gets rid of the extra suds built up inside the machine that you cant see but your machine detects it and causes faults such as that. Also, there is a small wire on the control board that may need replaced if it keeps kicking the error code.

Washer stops cycleing

First are you sure the error code is 'LE' and not 'tE' which looks very similar. The LE is usually the motor position sensor. Common on older washers. Easy fix. Under $20 part. The tE error is usually the thermistor. Inexpensive part about $6, but can be more complicated to get to. Ad a comment to your question and my answer with error code and I'll reply with more info if needed.

My washer stops before the rinse cycle because it can't seem to drain enough to start the spin cycle. I just had the drain motor replaced one month ago. I get the error code nd. I can sto the cycle and...

I'd love to say yes! The machine is stopping because it will not drain. This is what the nd code means. Therefore, it will not rinse (add more water) or spin because the water level is already too high and to try to "spin it out" would put too much pressure on the machine with that much water in it. Drain out the water by putting the drain hose below the level of the washer (this takes forever) and call your repair man back!

The washer goes through the whole cycle then for the last 11-12 min it stops and doesn't finish the rinse cycle. it sprays water just like at the begining of the cycle then tries to spin then pauses

With no error code on your FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW I will still give it shot. I believe you are failing in spin cycle. See this Post and the post I link to for a step by step clutch maintenance/repair. If you have more info on the failure or questions post back and we will try to help.

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.

The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.
