It's either a water supply issue or an electrical supply issue..
If it's a water supply issue, check the hose screens at the inlet hoses. Shut the water off to the machine, and take the hoses loose at the faucets. Take the screens that are in the hose end out and clean them, then reinstall.
If it's an electrical issue, you won't get any response from the machine when you start it.. not sure if this is your case, but the first place is to check the circuit breaker and reset if needed. Then check the lid switch operation. This switch will keep water from flowing if it's not properly operating. Sometimes the lid on a washer can get slightly bent by too much weight be placed on the machine. Open and close the lid and listen for a positive "click" from the micro switch.
Those are good things to check for a start...let us know if you still have a problem with your kenmore.

I have a Kenmore top load Elite model # 110.28062800,and was wondering if the wash basket (part # w10118182)is to have water inside of it. I took the basket out to clean the machine and there's liquied...


Tony,
You can expect some light accumulation of liquid in parts of the basket. Keep in mind, this part is housed within the washer outer tub which contain the water as the basket does the crazy things wash baskets do.
Don't know why you feel you need to disassemble a washer to clean it so meticulously. Was it wobbling or not draining or did you just get bored?

I get F51 error on my Kenmore Elite Oasis washer. During the spin cycles, it makes a loud, grinding noise. It appears that some of the plastic over the tub has been sheared. What do you recommend? ...


First, what is your model number?!
The F-51 error code on this washer indicates that the machine control board in the console detects a motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor -- tachometer) failure. This can be caused by a number of different problems. You could have a bad RPS sensor, a failed motor, a wire harness connection problem or an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub that is interfering with spin basket rotation. A water filling problem could also cause this code to be displayed since the basket would have excessive friction if water is not entering the machine properly. With the washer off, spin the basket to see if it rotates freely. If you detect resistance or suspect that an item is stuck between the basket and the outer tub, you will likely need to remove the basket and check this area. Remove the basket and check for foreign objects or debris.
If the basket spins freely, make sure that your water supply cut-off valves are fully open. Shut off the water supply and remove the hoses from the connections on the back of the washer. Place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply to check the flow and water pressure coming from the end of the hoses. Check the inlet water valve screens for deposits or debris that could interfere with the water fill. The motor will begin to spin the basket before the washer completes the filling function. If the filling is slow, it could cause the F-51 code.
If the water supply is okay, you could have a wire harness connection problem, failed RPS sensor or a number of other failures. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.
I recommend that you unplug the washer and access the control board first. Check the wire harness connections on the P10 and P5 plugs first. Measure the resistance through the motor and the RPS sensor as shown below. This may point you in the direction of your failure. If you need more help, submit additional details.

Kenmore Elite Oasis washer does not lock


First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.
