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

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.

SOURCE: We have a Kenmore Elite Calypso, it is not washing

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.
Error code CA means Average current limit. This error code will display if the load of clothes is more then the normal load. Also if current limit breaches then status signal comes back from the motor controller. The unit will return to standby mode and display CA. Average current trip occurs if the current draw at the motor windings is greater than 5.55 amps in 2 seconds. This error occurs if there is a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: My Kenmore Elite washer spins to slow cauisng the

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

How do you solve the balance problem in the kenmore elite oasis even with no clothes it in


Try running with no clothes? If still shows UL when empty running, your machine needs service. P.S. use HE detergent or else.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 that has plastic pieces breaking off and falling into the washer. It is coming from a part that is inside the front door gasket and it loks like the tub is supposed to ride on...


I can't solve the problem, but my HE3 42824 has done the exact same thing...the kenmore subcontractor repair people have been less than helpful and want to charge 180 just to come out and service it. We were told on the phone that it MAY be the plastic tub, and it MAY be covered under warranty. After waiting 5 days for a maintenance appointment, only to have them cancel it for 5 days, we had enough...I we bought a Samsung last night! I don't think the Kenmore cleans well, anyhow, and it adds a bit of a musty smell to my clothes, so I am glad to be rid of it!

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 Tearing holes in my clothes


Are you using HE ( high efficiency ) detergent?

If you are using regular detergent the machine may be sensing all those bubbles and may be working longer to get rid of them.

Try using a net/lingerie bag for delicate clothes.

This type of washing machine works by sensing when the clothes are saturated then it will start to tumble back and forth, and it will continually drain out the dirty soapy water and bring in clean soapy water, then spin out and go into the rinse cycle..

It's all done by the machine sensing when it's time to go to the next cycle.

I am wondering if you are maybe using too much detergent.. Only use the max of 3 tablespoons of HE detergent if you have hard water and 1 tablespoon if you have soft water.

Hope this helps.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.
