We have a Kenmore Elite he5t front load washer, and this morning when I loaded and started it, it made a clicking noise that seems to be connected with the water filling. Last time it was used it worked fine.

    The noise start as soon as you start the washer and the door locks.

    As soon as we start our kenmore washer, and the door locks, it starts making a non stop clicking noise. The last time we used it it worked fine.

The solenoid on the water valve is likely failed.
Replace the dual inlet water valve.

Thanks!!

Unscrew the hot and cold water inlet valves if the washer is not filling up quickly enough or filling very slowly or filling with water but making unusual clicking noises.If the water is filling properly in the unit but making noise in the spin cycle then the spin bearing and motor bearing needs to be checked. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. If its making noise while drain cycle then check the drain hose and drain pump .If anything is got blocked .If all checked ok then the motor control board and the spinning motor needs to be checked,also check the drum ,spin in manually and check if its making noise then either drum is out of alignment or any other object is blocking the drum from getting proper spin.

    If the clicking noise comes directly as the door locks and machine starts then,


    Could be the motor or a relay .


    A clicking sound quite often is a relay with a coil dying. The coil pulls in the contacts, but can't hold them. It could also be a solenoid that shifts gears in the transmission. In both parts, a energized coil pulls a shaft in. In the solenoid, it is mechanical, where in a relay, the action is to move contacts switching a load.If the clicking is non-stop in all cycles or any cycle getting stopped in between then the timer has to be checked and replaced.as the faulty ti,mer will make clicking noise before going completely bad.

    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle


This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

SUD means there are too many soap suds in the washer. Are you using a front load approved detergent? Are you using the correct amount? or slightly less is better.
