Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Top Load Washer

Kenmore washer acts sporatically and won't finish a cycle

My kenmore elite washer with catalyst will beep and change settings sporatically and when I try to set it for a load it usually just goes off and does not respond to any thing I push. If it does start a cycle it will not finish it and I'm left with a washer full of water and soapy laundry.

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.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question@@$%^^^

Kenmore Elite Catalyst Washer Keeps beeping and displays 10


I'm not sure if you've solved this already but our Kenmore Elite washer had a similar problem that got worse. It ended up being the whole touch panel had to be replaced. I was able to diagnose and replaced it myself with help from the Tech sheet that is underneath the touch panel. Our Kenmore Elite dryer also had to have this paenl replaced several years ago when it was fairly new. Hope this helps.

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
