I ran a diagnostic test and found out it was a faulty temperature sensor. You can find it when you take the bottom panel off and look at the bottom of the tub. It will be the little black square-headed plastic connector with a wiring harness attached. The part is about $16.

Why does my Kenmore Elite HE3 fill with water when it's off

The water valves are leaking usually from grit in the seat of the valve. They are a pair and can be easily replaced.

Kenmore Elite HE3 does not work with Pure Wash system

One of the things to try is get a Y connector for the machine. Hook both ends of the Y to the washer at the hot and cold, then connect the last part to the pure wash. The HF error is HOT FLOW so it is not seeing any hot water pressure. The actual temperature should not be an issue. Also if you have too much water pressure you wont see the bubbles. If that happens just start turning down the cold water valve on the connection to the pure water unit until you see bubbles in the viewing window. I ams sceptical about these machines because you have to reduce the surface tension of water in order for it to clean, that is partly the job of heated water and laundry soap. Also if there is an ozone generator in that unit, there is a consumable part because ozone needs electrolysis to be generated. I cant help but wonder where the hydrogen goes when it is generated.

F error code "kenmore top load" washer oasis he3

LF means Long Fill, this error flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. Check whether water supply is connected and turned on. Make sure the hose is not blocked and hose screen is clear. If so make sure pressure hose connection to machine/motor control is fine. Also check the continuity of water inlet valve, use a multimeter to check the continuity. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

No matter what the temp setting is at it only has very hot water

Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.

Need a manual for my kenmore elite he3t front load washer

My Kenmore Elite HE3 has been great for many years, and now I have a little problem for the first time.
I can usually press cancel to change the program. This morning, after I selected one program and press cancel, it won't cancel. Lights just blinked. So, I press Start to wash with selected program, but it won't start. It won't start nor cancel no matter what I do.
Should I unplug the unit?
Thank you so much!

Kenmore Top Loading washer gets very little cold water

You could try reversing the water lines and see when you select hot if cold comes out strong. If it does not then it should be the valve. If it comes out good in reverse, it could be the tempature sensor. Here is the link to parts and diagrams.
