Brand new kenmore HE2 front load washer - keeps filling

We were able to wash our first load of laundry just fine but during the second load the washer kept filling with water, even during the drain and spin cycles. At the end of the wash the machine shut off but water was still pouring into the machine. I was able to open the door but obviously water started pouring out so I couldn't get my clothes out. We've tried to do just the Drain/Spin cycle two separate times but it still fills with water during the whole cycle. What is the problem?

Re: brand new kenmore HE2 front load washer - keeps...

Either your pressure switch is bad, or the air line that connects to the presuure switch has come loose. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side rear of the washer with the top cover removed. It is a brown colored, disk shaped, device with an electrical connection and an air hose connection. Sometimes this hose comes loose in shipping, or the electrical connection may be loose. Without it, the washer will continue to fill and will NOT shut off. Now...if you just purchased this unit, DO NOT do anything that will void the manufacturer's warranty. It may be an inconvenience, but I would recommend you get the appliance repairman to come in and take a look at it. That won't be held liable if something were to break. This is, however, usually a simple problem and not considered major. I hope this reassures you some. Post back with comments if you have any further questions/concerns.

He2 plus front load washer keeps showing F21 error code. I cleared the drain pump filter. Still displaying F21 how do i check to see if i need a new pump


If you found a blockage in the pump screen restricting the drainage and it now drains fine but F21 is still there,the error code can be cleared by pushing the PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times within 2 seconds.
If after clearing the error code if it returns on the next wash cycle the pump will need to be replaced.

I hope this has helped you resolve your washer troubles,

Front loader smells like stale cigarettes during cycle

Make sure that you are using high efficiency (he) detergent. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the tub and fill the detergent tray with vinegar. Run it on the hottest, longest cycle. You can also use a Front load cleaner such as Afresh, made by Whirpool. I think that Tide makes one too. Vinegar is usually readily available. At the end of washing for the day, leave the door to the washer slightly open so that fresh air can get in and dry it out keeping moldy, milduey smell down. If it mildews, use a rag and bleach water to clean the boot seal. Hope this helps.
