Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite My front-loading washer will not drain. It is making a clicking/rattling noise in the vicinity of the drain. I bailed the tub and opened the drain as I have seen the repairman do when he found a baby washcloth in it once, but I found nothing in it, aside from a bit of lint. I cleaned a bit of lint out of the receptable and reassembled it. I was able to get it to work for one load, but now the rattling noise is back and it will not drain. The error messages it give me range from a plain F to F2 to SUD. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated.

Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or obstructed, make sure that the connections at the water pump are tight, check te pump for any foreign objects, if all is good with these test replace the pump.

the f code is telling you that there is a long drain time a blockage, if all is good in the drain line then if the pump is running, then if nothing is found in the pump foreign then the pump has a problem

My LG Wahining machine is making a rattling noise and will not spin or drain.


For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

My kenmore front load washer has a thumping noise?


First, make sure that the dishes aren't rattling around inside the washer. Believe it or not, your Kenmore Front Load Washer user's manual will have instructions on the proper procedure for loading it.

Unplug the washer if possible and, when it's dry and empty, remove the bottom cart to look at the drain port near the back of the washer's interior. Sometime food scraps or silverware can get lodged in the port's mouth and rattle around every time the washer runs. The only time you should ever need to call a repairman about this problem is if the noise only occurs at the start of the wash cycle and makes a low thumping noise or a rapid-fire clicking noise. These are both indicators that the inlet valve is broken and needs to be swapped out for a new one.

Its your inner tub bearing that is causing the problem,it is going bad and will continue to do so. You have to buy the whole inner tub in order to get a new bearing or you could have someone press it out and find the part number to replace it with.

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem


We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Washer making a weird noise


forgot to include the most important step! We got the dimes out after wadding up a small piece of duct tape, sticky side out, and using locking forceps to grip the tape while fishing out the dimes from the drain pump.

did you clean pump out by removing acess port on front end of pump? also you can ckd pump impeller by removing screws around pump body impeller will free wheel but should have some resistance to turning by hand if no water in tub reinstall pump put in drain spin to see if drum will spin if it does forget main motor ..motor is most reliable par on those washers
