    I figured it out. First, Unplug the power. Then remove three screws holding on the lower front panel. On your right you will see a drain plug. Place a bucket under the drain and slowly unscrew the drain. Ya may want to hold your nose as this smells pretty bad. Allow all the contents to empty and clean the trap. Put the panel back on and plug in the power. This should resolve the issue.

I resolved the issue. The drain plug was clogged. To repair this first unplug the power from the machine. Then remove three screws holding the lower front panel on. Grab a bucket and put it under the "plug" on your right. Hold your nose as this part may smell. Slowly unscrew the drain plug and allow all contents to empty into the bucket. Now you know why the machine refused to work properly! Clean the drain plug and secure it tightly back in place. Put the panel back on. Plug in the power. And this should resolve your issue. Now go tell the wife how hard you had to work to fix her washing machine,duck, and do a load or two to help her out! Happy Washing!

Kenmore HE2 washer will not automatically advance through all the cycles


I had this same /similar problem with my machine and found that the micro-computer board on the top rear near the cover of the machine are very prone to having bad electrical contacts on the board where the wire connectors go. The answer simply was to remove this board and add solder to each and every solder pad that goes to the connectors. The board is not bad (defective) just poor electrical connections.The repairman probably just wiggled the 1 with the issue and it worked for you for months as described! Perhaps you could get away with just disconnecting the electrical connectors and plugging them back in -it could buy you some more time before fixing it permanently with solder!

Good Luck!

I have the Kenmore front load washer HE2. How do I use the clean washer cycle.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

In order to perform a "clean" on the HE2 is as follows...Read these instructions completely before beginning the cleaning process.
**If necessary, the cleaning cycle may be interrupted by pressing STOP. This will stop the cycle. A RINSE/SPIN cycle must then be run to thoroughly rinse the remaining bleach from the unit. Failure to do so will cause damage to the unit and clothing added to the next cycle.**

Begin procedure

1) Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.

2) Be sure the door is closed.

3) Open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.


NOTE: Do not add any detergent to this cycle. Use of more than 2/3 cup (160 mL) of bleach will cause product damage over time.


4) Be sure dispenser drawer is closed.


5) Select the CLEAN WASHER cycle.

6) Press START.

NOTE: The basket will rotate, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue. The machine will not fill, but the basket will rotate while the washer runs a short sensing cycle. This will take approximately 3 minutes.


7) The cycle will determine if clothing or other items are in the washer. a) If no items are detected in the washer, it will proceed to step 8. b) If any items are detected in the washer, all cycle lights will flash and "rL" or "F/34" will be displayed. Associated LED status lights will remain lit. The door will then unlock. Press STOP to cancel the failure code. Then repeat steps 1, 2 and 6 to start the cycle again.


8) Once the cycle has begun, allow the cycle to be completed.


9) After the cycle is complete, leave the door open, slightly, to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

Good Luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Washer is Kenmore He2 model # 110.46462501


Hi,
It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

HE2 front loadable washer doesn't move fm wash to rinse to drain


Sounds like the door lock. It will not advance to spin if it thinks the door is open. There is a instruction sheet inside the unit behind the lower panel. That will give the error codes for the flashing lights.
