Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 1 Model No.110.26942503

Hi,
My tub drips water slowly and constantly.This started after I had a
city water main line coming into my home repaired.
I thought I had flushed out any sand that might have gotten into the
washer intake lines.Can I clean it or do I need to replace the water inlet
valve?
If I need a new valve can you supply the part number and supplier?

It is a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 1 topload washer Model 110.26942503.
Also, is there a website where I might download a schematic or manual in
in a pdf file?

Your help would be greatly appreciated,
Larry

My Kenmore Elite Quiet Pac 4 allows water to slowly come in after a cycle has finished and everything says it is off. What is the problem?


There is a valve inside your washer that needs to be replaced. Call sears and have them replace it. You'll need to give them the model and serial #'s.

Kenmore elite smartwash quiet pak 9 he4t the washer starts filing water when the washer is turned off.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- not closing fully- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Water dripping


Turn the water off at supply valve, this will stop the water. Then you will need to replace the fill valves on the washer.

Kenmore elite he3t quiet pak 4 what is sevice code f 35


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Mcu and ccu


MCU = Motor Control Unit. A control board that is located in the rear of the washer at the bottom adjacent to the drive motor. Remove the back panel for access.

CCU = Central Control Unit. A control board that is located directly behind the wash tub. This is the main "brain" of the washer. You can access by removing the washer top panel.

Water is not flowing in when turned on.


There are 2 solenoid valves that control the hot and cold water that fail occassionally. Try running just the hot or cold water (Its unlikely they both failed at the same time). If either the hot or cold works, then you have a bad solenoid valve. They cost about $25

With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.
