    there is no option & select button on this washer

  • cherdon78 Feb 01, 2010

    I tried both of these options twice, nothing happened

  • cherdon78 Feb 01, 2010

    There are five wash cycle buttons surrounding the start button.
    When you select any of these buttons the light on the button flashes
    when you push the start button the machine does not start the wash cycle

Hi,

Let me see if I can walk you through a diagnostic cycle. There are several ways to do this, I'll start with the most common, then the second most.

1) close the door (Do not turn on the power)

2) select the drain/spin cycle.

3) select "no spin" at the spin speed setting's.

4) push the "prewash" button 4 times within five seconds. If entered successfully, the unit will display "00" in the display, then the door will lock and diagnostic will begin, it takes approx. 5 mins. (if your machine does not have the prewash selector, we'll need to do the second option for diagnostic's).

The second most common diagnostic entry is done like this...

1) close the door but do not power unit on. (If following your previous attempt, open and close the door before proceeding)

2) Select any button EXCEPT either of the pause/cancel, stop, start, or power, depending on your options.

3) In this sequence...
a)push/hold this button for 3-5 sec.
b)release 3-5 sec.
c)push/hold 3-5 sec.
d)release 3-5 sec.
e)push/hold 3-5 sec.

If entered successful the unit will display "00" for 5 sec. then display any error history, control board version's etc, then enter the diagnostic. before beginning the door will lock, the display will go from "01" to "08" in sequence for a period of approx. 5 minutes testing all the component functions. If there are any error's or fault's, the unit should provide a code, i.e. F23, F20 etc.

Let me know if any of that help's to move you forward in a workable solution.

Good luck.

    Hello,



    Ok,



    Let me ask you than, which cycle light is flashing ?

    Aww ! This would indicate you have a defective door lock mechanism/latch or a connection is bad/loose to said switch/latch. This may require calling in a pro appliance tech, it's your call. It is a pretty easy repair in my opinion, (just have to remove the door gasket spring and 2 screw's holding the latch, attach the connection's and your done). but I do this for a living.



    The part number is #8182634 and retail's for approx. $50, but I'd shop around you may find it for less at a local brick & mortar appliance parts vendor or on-line.



    Let me know if I can assist you further.



    Good luck.

Hi,
Try pressing the "options" and "select" button until the lights goes away.
Or if it doesn’t solve the issue, it is probably because of blocked pump. Take the back panel off, access the pump and the outlet pipe, clean it and your washer will start working.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Kenmore HE3 42822 powers off during cycle


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

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.

Washer stuck


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.
