Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My front load Kenmore HE4t washer has an oder and is causing my clothes to have an oder. After researching I am finding that there should be a drain pump filter that needs cleaning. Have looked in book, and machine and can't find the location of drain pump filter. I have used a Tide cleaner, and keep the door open and have checked the rubber door seal. I am so disappointed in this washer and am ready to get a top loader.

    I am sure this will help my husband to find the drain and filter and clean it out. I am hoping with other things that I am doing, I will get rid of the oder in my washer. Thanks you for your help. Donna M.

Hi

The drain is the white circle thing right in the middle. you unscrew the cap and then pull the filter straight out.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. The front panel is below the washer window.
These screws can be found::

a. if you have the optional washer storage drawer unit,, they can be found by opening the drawer, and observing the 3 screws (left, middle, and right side, that hold the front panel on.
or
b. if you DONT have the optional drawer assembly, then they are found on the front, bottom, of the washer, again holding the front panel on the washer.

1. unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size)
2. lower/remove the front panel, and set it asisde on some towels, so as not to scratch the front panel.
3. get something now to soak up at least a gallon of water that WILL empty onto the floor.
4. observe large WHITE drain cap, at front center of washer.
5. unscew white drain cap --WARNING-- lots of water WILL drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
6. clean out the front and bottom of the filter trap. I'm sure lint, and gosh knows what else have cloged some of the holes
7. wipe out the inside of the housing for the filter trap (observe lots of -gunk- there too).
8 put back in filter trap, tighten white cap, and put front panel on washer with same 9/32 screws you took off earlier

Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Kenmore Elite HE4T standing water


I also have standing water after a wash cycle, but not immediately after. Given the history of very expensive repairs to this Kenmore HE4T washing machine, I suggest you do what I do, if the machine is still cleaning the clothes. Whatever cycle you use, try to be around when the machine finishes, so that you can turn off the water supply and remove the damp clothes to the dryer or clothes line. Turn on the water supply only when you want to use the machine. This works for me because I don't do many loads per week and my laundry area is right next to my kitchen. If it was in my basement, I'd have replaced it already with a top loading machine with mechanical not electronic controls.

Shaking is caused by poor distribution of clothes causing an imbalance. Try the machine empty. If it works well, be aware that you'll have to redistribute your load to stop the shakes.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Front Load Washer


These machines have a filter you should clean depending on your usage. It is usually at the front bottom - a small door. This is a filter before the water gets to your outlet pump to be siphoned out; it is there in order not to clog up your pump.
