Kenmore Elite He3 gas dryer (110-92832100) not heating. Igniter glows red for a min or so, drum spins, hear a loud 'buzzing' noise....


The problem could be flame radiant sensor or in most cases the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves. The radiant sensor must be aligned perfectly with the igniter. The radiant sensor contacts bypasses one of the gas valve solenoid coils and as the igniter heats up it makes the sensor contact trips unbypassing the coil and allowing the gas to flow and be ignited.

The problem is with the solenoid coils,
one with 2-prongs and the other has 3, if the radiant sensor is aligned with igniter and working perfectly but no gas is ignited. The buzzing sound is coming from the coils trying to operate the valves. Replacing both coils is the simple and only viable solution.

Kenmore Model 16798 dishwasher: no incoming water throughout entire cycle


Hello there
The solenoid is just a valve. Only it operates electrically.

Check to be sure you are getting water to the valve. Turn off water,
disconnect water supply from solenoid valve, place line in bucket, turn on
water slowly.

Does water come out?

If yes, then reconnect water and check other side of valve. Disconnect
connection on other side of solenoid valve. Does water come out when you
cycle dishwasher?

Could be a problem with plugged water tubes. All sorts of junk comes out of
water lines.

Also if you have a manual valve on the wall for line going to dishwasher,
the line could be plugged at this valve. Turning it off/on several times or
backflushing might clear the plug.

No water to icemaker. Water in door works well.


the water that enters the ice maker is controled by a thing called a solenoid valve (electricaly operated) the" water in door system" is a manual operated valve.. typicaly when the ejector rolls around to put the ice in the tray the solenoid opens lets water in then closes could be solenoid / wireing or controler
good luck

Kenmore front load washer, model 417


Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

My Kenmore Elite He4t front loading washer fills up with water when I'm not even washing clothes. I left some bed linens in the tub to be washed later in the week and when I opened the door to add some...


This condition is typically caused by faulty solenoid or solenoids at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

No cold water only hot water will filling


The water inlet valve solenoid is probably faulty. You can check it using a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity to see if it is faulty. The solenoid is most likely faulty on the cold water side. Here is a picture of the inlet valve solenoid assembly. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore top load washer-- water will not turn off even after machine is turned off. Please help


It sounds like faulty water inlet valve solenoid, Replace water inlet solenoid valve assembly. Check them for continuity. If the meter reads zero ohms, the solenoid is open and must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer water wont stop running and switch to wash. It overflowed


sounds like a bad water valve. Try disconnecting for a few minutes. If problem continues, the solenoid on the water valve is staying open which means the circuit is not opening. Replace valve.

Water is not flowing in when turned on.


There are 2 solenoid valves that control the hot and cold water that fail occassionally. Try running just the hot or cold water (Its unlikely they both failed at the same time). If either the hot or cold works, then you have a bad solenoid valve. They cost about $25
