Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water will not start

Everything seems ok... lights, etc., but after door lock has gone off and on for adding extra clothes, I can hear a clicking - but no water. We had a repair person out a couple of weeks ago for the same problem - he said it was because the door was not latching correctly and fixed it.... but, he didn't tell us how. Now, two weeks later same problem and it's Saturday and the repair shop is not open... Any suggestions?

Re: water will not start

There are a couple of screws that you can loosen there to make slight adjustmens an also squirt a little wd 40 in the lock there and see if that helps

Indesit wixl143 broken I try to start a wash it sounds like it should as I can hear water but it's not going into the drum and the door lock light is flashing rapidly along with the extra rinse light

Suggest you take the back off and home in on the water input filter. They are often gunged up with lime scale. Do pull the plug on it before you attack it with a wrench etc.

My maytag washer does not spin fast enough to get the water out of the clothes. Please advise

Randall, the high speed spin failure can be caused by a number of issues. I would suggest starting the machine without any clothes in it. Once it has filled, make sure the door lock light is on and that the door is, in fact, locked. If the light is not on, or if the door is not actually locked, either the door lock assembly or the control panel is at fault.

If the light is on and the door is locked, stop the wash cycle and start a drain and spin cycle to see if all of the water is pumped out of the drum. All water should be pumped out within 10-15 seconds. If excess water is in the drum, the high speed spin will not start.

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

you might be able to get at the cable to open the door by taking the top of the washer make sure you unplug it first as you will have to put your hand in it its a tight fit though or the cable could of come off thats why it wont open

try fuse on plug this may be gone, also the door interlock switch, try a light bang with fist near door catch see if this will do it, what i do suspect is the door inerlock is faulty, this is a safety device which locks the door when machine is in washig/spinning mode it aso stops machine working when you open the door, this is also a safety device, good luck al. xxxx

Suggestion: Check the wall inlet to see if water comes freely; then check if the inlet valves behind your machine to see they are not clogged. Best that u open the valve full before you begin your wash. The water coming 3 inches/door is normal. Dont try opening the door until after you hear a click or aft 2 or three minutes aft wash cycle completes.
