How do you do a Pre-Soak cycle on Kenmore front-loader

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 model #110.44832200

I lost my nanual and want to know how to do a pre-soak cycle with bleach for some very dirty white items. This top loader only allows me to add 1/3 cup of bleach in the measuring cup tray and that wont do the job. There is no button for a pre-soak cycle, only a Whitest Whites button (which uses hot water and washes the clothes longer).

Can you please help me? I can't find a manual online to download.

Thanks.
Tiffle

How do you get to the drain filter on a kenmore elite he3 washer to clean it?


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader to clean the drain pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader F-11 and FDL codes


yes!! the F/11 is triggered under high voltage conditions like high speed spinning. The part is called the MCU motor control unit. if it goes into failure while using your machine and locks the door, just wait 3 minutes and the door will unlock after the MCU resets. Try using you machine with a low speed spin for awhile.

My Kenmore Elite front loader HE3 washer will not start.


The door lock is not telling the control the door is locked. Faulty door switch or failed control or loose wire.Try pushing in on the door while it tries to start. Advanced trouble shooting may be required.

Getting around the way the boards are pre-programmed is not something they write into the manuals or even make programable. If you want to soak with more bleach, open the dispenser drawer after the unit has filled and add a bleach/ water miture to the soap area of the dispenser. This will let it run into the machine and will get you more bleach in there.

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer keeps filling with water


The inlet valve will need to be replaced. Its a fairly simple procedure and a pretty inexpensive part.
