Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't fill seems stuck on cycle Kenmore washer 8540265 110 4646

Did test, shows Add garment /Rinse & cloths clean as problem. Seems like pump is running on lower right. Looks like water is not being allowed in machine. In diagnostic stuck on drain & spin then finally went to same three error lights. Says something about pressure pump? where is it? That is our best guess. Checked water in and out all working Cleaned pump filter in bottom right/ was full of stuff.
Yesterday I did not know in the lower cover was a book that has diagnostic stuff or Kenmore 110 is not the model number or how to clean out the drain/filter or that it had one. Things are lookin up. Live in BUSH Alaska, can't get a repair man.

It appears your dual inlet water valve has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

The washer stopped while in wash cycle. The water is in the machine but it says add garment, rinse, clothes clean and F-21. Help thanks.


F21 indicates that the washer is having problems draining. Check the drain hose to see if it is kinked or if there is an obstruction in the hose.

SUD comes on every time excessive suds are detected. Not using the proper detergent will set this off faithfully. The machine will run a cycle to remove the excessive suds before completing the wash cycle.once you remove the lower panel you will see the pump it has a round cap that can be rotated counter clock wise but before you do this you will need towels and possibly a shop vac because you will lots of water, but mostlikly you have debris stuck in it or a bad pump. REMEMBER LOTS OF WATER!!!!!!!!, be careful. I think it would be best to cal a service person especially if the washer is upstairs.

Ran Cleaning Cycle, lights blinking w/ F- 21min alternating


f-21 is a blocked drain pump.remove the bottom panel,if you have a shop vac get all the water out,you'll see the pump and in the middle there's a piece that you can turn and pull out,first put towels under and around the pump to catch any water that leaks out,turn the part slowly and with your shop vac catch the water with the vac,take your time and open it little by little catching the water with the vac,when you get all the water out twist the middle part out and clean the catch and feel around in the boot and the pump and make sure you have it cleaned out.stick the middle piece back in and start the washer or you can fill it with a gallon of water and put it into a drain cycle and make sure it drains,if it doesn't you cooked the pump and have to replace it,let me know what you find and next time send the model number.

HE3t Kennmore water fill level adjustment?


I completely understand your dilemma as I have the same problem with my HE3. I was so frustrated I called a service tech out before my warranty expired and he told me the #1 complaint about these washers is that they don't get the clothes clean. I was surprised at his honesty! He told me to get a water softener and to use hot water but said nothing about clothes that are supposed to be washed in cold water. I asked him how to adjust the water level and he said the sensor is not adjustable but I have been unable to find out if these is true. I agree with you and believe it's because they use too little water. I have come to absolutely hate this washing machine for many reasons. When washing anything long (jeans, pants, long-sleeve shirts, etc) it literally ties the whole load into a clothes knot. You can grab one item and pull the whole load out because it's a huge knot ball. So tell me, how do the clothes get clean (or properly rinse) when they are in a ball and unable to freely move through the water (which isn't there) in the bottom of the tub? Another problem is that it takes a MINIMUM of 3-4 rinse cycles to get the detergent out of the clothes...yes, I use HE detergent. Here's what I do. I use the 'add a garment feature' to interrupt the cycle after the washer has filled. Then I add about 2-3 gallons of additional water to both the wash and 1st/2nd rinse cycles. This has helped immensely but leads to two more reasons I hate the machine. First, that makes it extremely high maintenance to stand waiting for the moment to add water. Second, when adding the additional water, clothes have a tendency to get caught between the rubber gasket and wash tub where they can sit during the entire cycle not getting clean. On the up side I can say I've never had a mechanical problem with the machine. I am sorry and wish I could help more.

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
