Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Out of balance condition

Kenmore HE3T Out of balance during spin. It doesn't matter if it is in extra-high or extra-low spin mode it still wobbles and knocks things off the top of the machine. No whining noise, just what is clearly an out of balance condition. Large load or small load, same problem. It seems to be getting worse (once only in extra-high spin, and now all spin modes). Any advice will be much appreciated. I would like to attempt to repair this machine as it's my daughter's but I am from out of town and may not have time to wait for parts. Thanks in advance.

Check the drain pump in the bottom of the unit and verify its not clogged, verify unit is level, also check the support struts/springs for the tub.

Softener tray is not draining during wash cycle


This tray empties during the spin cycle not wash cycle. Is the agitator spinning during the spin cycle? If so, you are getting softener on clothes during this cycle as required.

My Kenmore Elite 3T washer has a loud whistling noise in the spin cycle. ??? Thanks!


Hi.

When that happens it is often because the drum bearing is starting to go. The first symptom is a loud high pitched noise during the spin part of the cycle. As problem gets worsening you will notice that the drum will be a bit wobbly if you spin it by hand.

Here parts and diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

My Kenmore elite he3t is giving me a problem in the spin cycle. Even thought the spin setting is set on high or extra high, the drum turns very slowly and will eventually stop and the washer starts...


The machine will not advance to the high-speed spin cycle unless the water is drained first. The F02 error code manifests this condition as it means draining problem. Either the pump filter is blocked, the drain hose is clogged/kinked, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working. The display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice.

Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

Sides vibrate during spin causing a lot of noise and machine moves. could it be out of balance?


1- Clothes are not balance inside the tube. Try to rebalance the clothes when it happens. It usually happens when towers leaning on on side when water level selector not set appropriately. 2- Try to level the washer by adjusting the leg screws at the bottom of the washer. 3- It make a lot of noise since the whole washer moving against the floor. When it spin only the tube then it won't be like that.

Out of balance condition


I had a Fridadaire model and had the same problem. It could be 3 things. 1- the weight came loose that balances the drum. 2- the bracket that is attached to the drum could have cracked. 3. the bearings to the drum have worn out. All of these problems involve taking the washer completely apart. This is big process, but if you have time and patience it worth it.
Is this model belt driven?
