Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

Washing machine won't draw water

Have a brand new washing machine, just installed. The installation people ran a test run with it and it worked fine. I have put in my first load and it is sporadically drawing water and then stopping and the door unlocks so that I can add a garment. As far as I can tell the house water pressure is fine and the water valves are open. What could it be and how could I fix it?

    Before worrying yourself about the cause and repair, why not call the store back and have the installation people come back? If you've already checked your water pressure and flow through the supply hoses, there must be something in the machine causing the trouble. It's new and still under warranty, so they should cover a service call.

Why does my new Frigidaire washer do 6 wash-cycles (washes for approximately 4 minutes out of a 50 minute planned wash) then spins and drains?


Who installed the machine? If it is a front loader did you remove the shipping bolts? If it is installed correctly I'd say it has a bad control board.
Unplug the machine, let it set for one hour and then try it again.

F & S GWL15 would not drain. Replaced pump & it drained for a while. Removed diverter, found a dime & some lint, cleaned it out and installed it. Still would not drain, water is on floor, do not see leak....


Have you tried reverse flushing the drain hose?
If you can get the outlet/drain hose to the washtub cold tap
wrap a towel around the hose and tap to stop water going everywhere whilst slowly turning up the water pressure
from the tap.
(Any leaks STOP and check your hose clamps/connections are all tight.)
Water should now be flowing into the machine bowl, and
hopefully turned the pump, and cleared any blockages.

Hope it helps

We have snked the drain line and put the water hose through the line and when we run the washing machine with no clothes in it the drain works fine. when we run the washing machine with clothes in it the...


Newer machines will eject the water so fast that older home plumbing may be too small to keep it from overflowing. We had no choice but to pay a plumber to install a larger drain to use the new HE washer I bought to replace my old one when the transmission went out. Then I had to fix the drywall after he ran new PVC to the larger drain further down the wall. I suggest asking how big of a hole they are going to make, and being prepared to fix that too.

Check hose error on electrolux wave touch washing machine


I'm sure nojallo1 has already fixed his but I just ran into the same problem and didn't find anything in my searches for a solution. The problem I had was the test cycle wasn't long enough to get hot water through my water lines so it could verify the hot and cold hoses were in the proper places. Solution: Turn the hot water on in all the sinks in your house until they have hot water running through them. This will prime your hot water line so it is full of hot water instead of cold water. Then run the install cycle again and it should be fine.

Perfoma washing machine won't go through rinse cycle.


Hi
After investigating the logic of the machine and how the timer works, I traced it down to the cold water solinoid rubber stopper It had crud in it and just hummed. After cleaning it out it ran just fine..
This is an easy fix.. If it cant run water it wont go to the next part of the cycle.
I hope this helps. I have more info if required.
