    I have a Kenmore Elite H3 5t that doesn't fill up with water. When it's at the point where water would start to fill the washer, you hear a ticking sound. I did see a F 30 error show up once, but now it just keeps ticking. I tried unplugging it for over 30 minutes, problem did not go away.

    I had the same problem, I pulled out the detergent tray out and hit the reset inside towards the back up on top & worked. Thanks

    I don't seem to find the "reset" button. Can anyone help please?

    Same thing here. I don't seem to have this flapper switch. There is a rotary thing in the back that won't move. Perhaps it's been redesigned?

Hey there is a temo fix till some body comes to your home if you remove the soap try and reach in to the back of the opening you can rest the spring loaded wheel that controls the soap disspenser and that will stop the clicking and allow the machine to run!!!!! after reading all the post i could find i figured it out now my washer is running fine!!!

Hi Everyone,

Where is the "spring board wheel"? I reach to the back end the opening. There is something on the top, but it can't be moved or turned in any fashion. Is that the "reset devise" you guys were talking about?

Please help.

thank you in advance.

Kenmore Elite 5t shows an F30 code, water fill solenoid is making a noise like its not opening


This is a dispenser motor issue. If you pull the unit out and remove the 3 screws coming into the back of the top panel, you can remove the top panel to access the top of the dispenser. There is a motor that turns a plastic lever on the dispenser. you might be able to manually help the arm move to get past the error code, but ultimately you will need to replace the dispenser motor. Here is the part to order.

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

We have a Kenmore HE5t that has an F30 error code. When you start the washer it just keeps clicking and won't fill. Any advice?


The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.

* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser.
* Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor
* Failed dispenser motor
