Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore 46462 powers off during spin cycle - no lights

If I hit "Drain and Spin" it seems to drain fine, but when it starts to spin, all the lights blink, then it powers off. Reducing/re-balancing the load doesn't seem to help.

    This one was kind of obscure and hopefully, rare. I discovered that the
    wiring harness to the front control panel was not secured in the
    plastic clip. It had come loose and was resting against the interior
    frame that supports the drum. After a year and a half of use,
    eventually due to vibration, one of the wires had rubbed through the
    insulation, causing an intermittent short.



    Recommendations - first check the clean-out for the pump behind the
    bottom front panel. If that seems clean, take the top panel off off the
    washer and inspect all wires and connectors closely.

I have a Kenmore HE3t washer than continues to stop during the cycle and flash the F2 error code even after cleaning out lines, hoses, trap, boot and replacing the drain pump.


It is possible that the brushes on the motor that spins the drum are worn down. The drum will start and stop when this happens. Check the brushes.

Kenmore HE2plus wont spin...F-21 error


Apparantly the F21 error means there is a drain problem...I removed the drain hose from the output in the wall and held it down at ground level and let it drain into a pot...I ran the rinse, drain and spin cycle while I did this but before I hit the start button I hit the 2nd rinse button to turn off the rinse portion of the cycle. It seems to be draining fine now.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
