Kenmore Elite front load washer (model: 110 42936200) won't spin. It makes a buzzing/humming sound when it should be spinning. Any suggestions?


F2 mean that you have a drainage problem and could be that the pump is clogged. I believe the pump can be accessed from the front of the washer. Also make sure electrical connections are secure. Make sure no hoses are clogged or kinked anywhere.

Washer does not completely drain to allow for spin


The most common cause for standing water in a washer is a clogged drain pump. Another possibility is a kink or clogged drain tube. Below is a youtube video with instructions on removing a drain pump on most front load washers including your Frigidaire model. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

Washer is not draining and is making a noise. Because the water is not draining I believe the pump is broke. It is a 2003 Kenmore Elite front load wasker


Check your drain hose first. It may be clogged. If it looks good, check your water pump. It is either one I would say. 4 thumbs up if you appreciate the reply. It is greatly appreciated. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to hrlp you. Thank you very much.

Holds water wont compleatly drain shuts down before spine cycle


Hello

If the washer shuts down before spin cycle it indicates that it is unable to drain properly. Please check the drain hose/drain pump filter for any clogs/blockages and try cleaning them to solve this problem. Also after cleaning check if the pump is working fine.

Our front loading kenmore washer is not draining properly


1. check the filter at the pump
2. check to see if you have any restrictions at the drain hose ( that is the hose that set in the hole in the drain)
3. clogged filters at the outlet pump will cause improper drainage.
I hope this helps.

Kenmore front load washer not draining


You may have a drain pump that is either clogged or failed. The following link explains how to checkthe pump for clogs:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

It doesn't take much to cause irreparable damge to these small drain pumps. If the motor or impeller become damaged and will not pump at the required volme, the washer will not drain and will shut down. If the pump no longer runs, you may have to replace it. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include helpful exploded view prts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If this a a smaller style front loader, you may not have a clean out trap on the pump. This style washer usually has a large rubber inlet hose that you remove to clean out debris. Drain any residual water, then remove the large hose from the pump. Debris commonly gets caught in this area just prior to the pump impeller.

My kenmore HE3 front load washer will not drain or open door


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

I have a front load Kenmore HE3T washer that is beeping and flashing a F3 code. I cannot get the machine to shut off with the pause/cancel button and had to unplug it...can anyone help me. Thanks


The problem with the fabric softener not dispensing is not likely related to and F03 error code due to the washer not draining.

For the dispenser problem, I recommend that you pull the dispenser drawer out and clean it thoroughly.
The fabric softener dispenser works on a siphoning principle.
Make sure that the siphon hole in the dispenser is clear and not restricted or plugged.

You can fill the fabric softener compartment with water and make sure that it is siphoning properly while you are cleaning it.
Make sure that the cover is properly replaced on the fabric softener dispenser when the drawer is replaced in the washer.
You can use the diagnostic test described below to test the fabric softener dispenser.
If the softener dispenser does not fill and dispense properly, you could have a failed dispenser valve, a failed control board or a wiring failure between components.

You indicated that you tested the pump and that it is good. You could have a clogged drain hose or a clogged washer drain that would prevent the washer from draining.
You could also have a failed drain pump even though it runs. If the impeller is jammed or damaged, it will not pump out the water in the washer.
You will likely need to unplug the washer and drain the water out of the tub using a wet/dry shop vacuum.
To check the pump and drain hose at the bottom of the washer, remove the bottom front service panel and remove the drain pump. You may find a clog or restriction in the drain pump or connecting hoses. If the drain pump is damaged or will not work, it will need to be replaced.
