I am having problems with my Kenmore Elite He3t Model 42932. It stopped washing and would not drain. I also got locked out. I cannot find the manual and I cannot seem to be able to find one to download. Can someone please help.

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.

SOURCE: My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

It is a code for a long drain problem (more than eight minutes). Press the Pause/Cancel button twice to clear the display. When the display is clear, press the Drain & Spin button then select No Spin by pressing the Spin Speed button, and then press and hold the Start button to start draining the water.

Use your senses to check whether the drain pump is running or not. The drain pump is located at the front right bottom of the machine. Check the volume of water being discharged to the drainage.

Disconnect power to the washer and check the drain hose for clogs and kinks, and then repeat the No Spin draining process, if the drain pump is running and water is being pumped out, until the water is completely drained out of the washer. Just press the Pause/Cancel button twice when the code appears to clear the display and restart draining.

Make sure the drain hose is raised no more than eight feet above the floor where the washer is installed. The drain pump cannot pump the water properly out to the drainage more than eight feet above the floor.

When draining is complete, empty the machine then prop up the bottom front edge of the washer to allow easy access to the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet. Remove the screws, and then push the panel down and off the cabinet to access the drain pump.

Place a shallow pan or lay a towel under the filter to catch the water from the pump. Unscrew the filter from the pump assembly and drain the water. Clean the filter for any debris that might be causing the pump to work poorly then screw it back in place.

Slide the lower front access panel up back into the cabinet and secure it the three screws.

This should take 30 minutes: Remove the panel that is located below the front door, there are 3 small screws located at the bottom that hold this... you will see the water pump, which has a access screw plug. Unscrew this, its like a filter, you may see stuff, like coins, socks, etc, remove and clean out, then put
everything back... this should fix the issue.

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.

Kenmore elite washer problem

sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
