If you have too much suds in your washer, get some phyzeme capsules from a drug store (for stomach gas) and cut at least four of them open and squeeze the contents into your washer. (you can put it in the soap dispenser and rinse a little water in, or open the door and ad it directly) Now mix them in by continuing to run the wash cycle, or moving the wash drum by hand. This will knock down the suds.

Flashing F-21 and SD wont finish a load


Your washer is designed to use a TINY amount of water. This conserves water and takes less energy to heat the water. Since it is so little water used any amount above a teaspoonful of detergent will reek havoc with the delicate controls on the machine. F21 Long drain Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump.82f0c42.jpg Sud= Suds lock detergent overdose. Too much detergent, the wrong stuff, added to the wrong compartment, you gotta use HE soap and you gotta use the correct amount. You get that computer thinking suds is in there and the machine is gonna go into a tailspin. Because of the low amount of water a9be475.jpg
used in HE machines, it is important
to use an HE detergent (low sudsing)
which is specially formulated to work
best under these conditions. The two
most important considerations
of a front loading washer are suds
control and soil concentration.
First, the tumbling action in an
HE machine generates
more suds than a top loader.
Tumbling the clothes in and out of the
water breaks the water surface
causing air to be trapped in the solution,
creating suds or foam. Multiple problems
can occur from oversudsing, such as
flooding from suds overflowing out of
the machine, formation of a suds cushion
during the tumbling action which reduces
mechanical energy,and “suds lock” which prevents
the machine from effectively spinning out the
water. In the situation of suds lock, the
machine trys to FIX the foaming problema by
stopping the cycle momentarily to allow
the suds to dissipate and then adding cold
water. This routine the machine goes
through to correct for over-sudsing results
in loss of energy and water savings and
can significantly lengthen the cycle time
(sometimes by as much as 2x). HE detergents
prevent over-sudsing and allow for
better rinsing of suds. HE detergent matters in
soil management also. Though HE washers
use about 1/3 of the water of a
top loader, the concentration of soil in the
load is much higher due to the larger
loads. To handle the higher amount of
soil, many HE detergents are specially
formulated with soil suspending ingredients
to prevent soil from re-depositing
onto clothes. Only use detergent with HE marked on it.
Use the correct amount.
The technical data sheet along with that
pesky clogged pump is located behind the
toe kick panel; remove the screws under the
bottom front edge of the washer. Tip the appliance
back to get to them screws. With the screws
removed, the panel will comes down and off.

I have a Kenmore front loader washing machine that won't spin or drain. What is wrong?


Top 10 frontload washer problems

1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completly closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessesary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.Note some models send a sig nal to the motor and another to the control letting both know the door is secure before proceeding, corrosion gets into the lid lock and the door can be locked and the control is ready but the motor ain't getting the message.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, too much detergen, detergent in wrong dispensing drawer, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. On some models a suds detect is determined by the motor over amping, most machines will try a few mini loads to correct the problem. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the termister/heater is out.

Check the pump.. the little door bottom left. take all the stuff out of there.. and there will be lots of "stuff". put a little pail under the hose part to catch the water first though.

Scrub the machine with three tablespoons of cascade dish detergent in the SOAP dispenser.. use a hot wash.. ( no clothes JUST a wash ) then follow that with one cup of bleach in the SOAP dispenser.

Hot fast wash. Usually this clears up the problem. Do this once a month.. but check that little door..

The display shows "E:" with no number.


With my machine it was the case of putting too much detergent in the machine.  Oversudsing.  So in the from of my machine on the lower right hand bottom corner, there was a round plate with a little hole in it.  I put a small screwdriver in it and turned the plate and removed it.  There was a piece of plastic hanging down, pull on it and try to open the door.  It seemed to work better if you tried to open the door from the bottom.  Once open, remove all clothes and run 1 cycle without anything.  I also poured hot water down the detergent area to clean it out.  If the clothes are wet, then put only a few in there and run them thru.  Basically, these machines should use detergent that have the HD mark on them, and only about 2 tablespoons of detergent for a full load.  Hope this helps...

Can't Open the Washer Door---Our Clothes are held Hoatage


Check and ensure that the tubes and passages to the water level pressure sensor are not blocked by caked detergent, lint , etc.
( this may have caused the water overflow in the first place)
clean up the internal parts that are wetted by the overflow.

clean the door lock mechanism. ( this normally works on a temperature delay mechanism, if cleaning does not work, replace)

all the above done with the power unplugged and water inlets unplugged , of course

Water leaking


There is a small plastic "gate" that is left down for liquid detergent and moved back and up for powder detergent. If this piece is left down and powder detergent is used, the water leaks and the detergent won't go into the washer properly.
