I think the machine is designed to do a quick wash this in turn uses less water /energy..On rinse the levels are higher it is controlled by a pressure switch, automaticly set ..so i dont think you can alter this unless its faulty of course..good luck

Kenmore Elite dishwasher takes water and discharges it, but will not start washing.


You must have a control panel problem, nothing else I know of causes this.

Kenmore elite dishwasher has an error code f4e1


I had the F4E1 code on my Kenmore Elite 665x. This means a water leak. I eventually pulled the machine from the cabinet and noticed some water beneath the machine and the water pump hose loose. I reattached the pump hose using a new hose clamp and zip tied the pump in place to keep it from happening again. Afterwards I had to reset the machine by pushing the smart wash pots and pan then normal wash in sequential order 3 times then shut the door. The machine then does a diagnostic test. After the test I pushed the cancel button and it was ready to go.
Hope this helps someone else!

I have a kenmore elite smart wash quietpak 9....I'm getting a message of "FH". What does this mean? I just a removed a sock from the drain ... Thank u!


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

My kenmore elite HE, smart pack is not dispensing the fabric softner? Can you help?


The softener water flow is clogged. You know, open the dispenser while it's filling in the final rinse and look over the softener dispenser. Is there water flowing?

Kenmore washer will not drain


Your washer does not have a cap on the drain pump. You need to remove the large rubber inlet hose from the front of the drain pump in order to access the pump impeller. This model washer tends collect debris in the large inlet hose area, so check it as well.

NOTE: If you own a wet/dry shop vac it will come in very handy to drain any residual water inside the wash tub. There's about a gallon of water that can remain in the wash tub and drain hose lines (this is normal). If you pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on it with a shop vac, this will make clean up much easier. Otherwise, you will need some towels to lay down under the pump before you remove the inlet hose.

For an illustration of what I'm talking about, you can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. Look under the "Motor/Tub" heading for item 35 (drain pump) and item 41 (Inlet drain hose).

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,


Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..
