SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!

Had same problem. Followed advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

This problem can be caused by either a leaking water inlet valve, or a condition known as "siphoning". Since you just recently moved, I would make sure you don't have a siphoning problem, first. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Although siphoning normally refers to a constant drain problem where a washer has problems maintaining the proper water level, it can also lead to problems where the drain line will back up into the washer.

Now, if you follow the advice in the link and determine this is NOT caused by siphoning, I would suspect that you have a water inlet valve that is leaking. A tell-tale sign will be water trickling down the fill tube in the rubber door bellow. The water inlet valves have a diaphragm that is controlled by an electric solenoid. Sometimes the valve becomes clogged with sediment or deposits, causing the diaphragm not to close properly. If you live in an area that has hard water, or use well water, you may have hard water deposits or rust build up in the valve. You may be able to correct the problem by removing the valve and cleaning it with some distilled vinegar. You can remove the valve by following these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn off water supply at the taps.
2. Disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. Remove washer top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
4. The inlet valve (this is what your water inlet hoses connect to) will be located in the left rear of the washer (facing from the front). Remove the dispenser hose(s) from the valve and the electric connections. Remember how the electrical connections are removed. They should be color coded. One is for HOT, one is for COLD.
5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the assembly in place.

Once you have the inlet valve removed, you can place it in some distilled vinegar and let it soak. Just don't submerge the electrical connections. If this does not correct your problem, replace the valve. Searspartsdirect.com and repairclinic.com are two notable web sites that I have frequently used. Just type in your complete model number to begin the parts search.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Winterize my Kenmore Elite Front Loading Washer

To winterize, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Turn off the water supply.
3. Drain any residual water from the wash tub and drain lines. This can be accomplished in two different ways:

a. Method 1 - Open the lower kick panel directly below the door by removing the scews under the lower front edge. (HINT: Propping up the two front feet of the washer can help provide better access - a 2x4 works well for this). Remove the access cover on the drain pump and allow the water to drain out. You will need some towels to clean up the water. About a gallon or so will leak out.

Method 2 - Remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and take a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the line. This will pull and remaining water from the wash tub and drain lines, avoiding a messy clean up.

NOTE: Whatever method you try, its still a good idea to remove the access cover on the drain pump and check for any foreign objects that may be caught in the trap that can sour over long periods of inactivity.

4. Make sure the placement of the drain hose in the standpipe provides an air gap to prevent any possiblity of drain water from getting siphoned back into the washer. Only place the drain hose into the standpipe about 6 inches and leave an air gap at the top.

5. Check the door bellow (rubber seal) to ensure there are no foriegn objects lodged inside the rubber folds that can mildew or rot. Clean if necessary.

6. Leave the door open when not in use, so that the tub can air out. This will prevent mold and mildew from developing and keep the tub from smelling sour.

NOTE: It may be a good idea to run a clean cylce with nothing in the tub to sanitize before shutting the washer down for the season. Use the hottest setting you have and use a small amount of bleach.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: F35 error code on a kenmore Elite front loading washing machine

This typically indicates slow drain condition. Check for any clogs or kinks in the drain line. Also check that the pump is not clogged and that no pump impeller blades are missing/broken and that the impeller moves freely. Any broken/missing blades or if the impeller won't turn freely will indicate a faulty pump. Hard objects can sometimes make it to the pump and cause damage. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore Super Capacity 3.5 error code E59


see the error code E59= E59 equals no tachometer signal for 3 seconds.
This means that the motor is not signaling to the washer normally and may be caused by a variety of failures within the motor, basket or the control board. Generally speaking, the E59 error requires the service of a Frigidaire professional for resolution due to the technical nature of the ERROR.

The machine is locked and can't open with clothes washed inside,. Add garment light is on and the time is flashing'


Whirlpool-made Front Loading such as the Kenmore Elite washing machines use a door lock and switch assembly having a tab that can be pulled manually for emergency opening of the door. This tab can be accessed with the removal of the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the washer and drain the water from the tub before accessing it. The link below contains the detailed instructions on manual unlocking of the door.

Purchase a new one. It is slip/pressure fit. If it is loose - the hole is dogged out and it cannot be repaired.
