You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap.

Drive motor failure, CCU or Motor control failure. To ceck this look at your owners manual and from then test the parts with a multi meter. To keep from spending money you can unplug your machine for 15 to 30 minutes, plug it back in and sometimes that will clear the code and everything will work just fine. Also some parts are covered under the 5 year warranty so make sure about that also

Unplug the unit and let it sit unplugged for 30 minutes. There is a power filter on the AC input line and sometimes power surges can cause it to need to bleed off the voltage from capacitors. There is a test procedure to see if the filter needs to be replaced but so far every time this has happened to our Calpyso, we pull the plug for a bit and the washer recovers.

There isn't enough space on this text box to post the removal & replacement procedure for the line filter, but you can find it at www.pcappliancerepair.com and look up the part # on the Sears Parts Direct site for your model # specifically.

Kenmore washer mold smell issue


front loader of top loader? For front loaders you need to dry around the front gasket and leave the door open 24 hours after each wash.

Put a couple of towels in the machine and add a full box of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and do a 90' boil wash. Clean towels and the smell gone.

How do i get rid of mold in my washer


If top load, run a washer full long cycle with out clothes and a full cup of Clorox. If a front loader, do the same thing, but then open door after the full cycle is complete. Front loaders are sealed and there is nowhere for the moisture to go..

Kenmore elite calypso top loader clothes still wet after spin


more than likely the machine has a bad clutch or motor.. in most cases it is cheaper to just buy another top loader.

No Power and will not open.


Try unplugging the machine for 10 minutes. A lot of times the computer will reset and function normal. At least you can most likely get it to unlock to get your clothes off.

Stinky Washer


We had the same problem with our front loader. (after only a year) We ran a load on "sanitary" setting with bleach. After that we leave the door open after EVERY load. That has fixed our problem
