Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer

I have two issues with my washer, one is that I get the SUD error message even when very little soap is added and second the estimated timer shows one minuet when it runs for another 30 minuets? I have a Kenmore He4 front load washer. I washed a rug that released this muddy substance that has clogged the drain in the machine. I am getting F02 and SUD codes. I cleaned out the drain area in the gasket, but how do I clean the rest out it myself?

WE had a person with the same problem with her HE4 front loaded washer. What we discovered was when we opened up the soap resivour was that soap built up around the float valves causing them to stick.

A technician I knew put vinegar down the soap dispensor and ran the cycle, with the washer empty. He put it on in the hot water mode and ran it for four or five complete cycles like washing clothes.

It worked for him. Try it like it did for him to see if it helps. If not, you will need to contact a service technician to see if the SUD error code means something else.

Sometimes the timer boards get a bit of moisture on them and cause a corrosion headache. I have yet to see anyone figure out a way to dry them off, and when condensation builds up, it usually means there is a problem causing the condensation to get that far up. On some versions a foam seal gets worn out from time, often needs to be replaced to prevent moisture built up.

Another thing that sometimes does it is the back of the machine, will be too close to the wall or have debris back behind there causing it not to be able to breath.

    Hi,

    The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

    Let me know if you want me to help on this.

    I have a Kenomore Elite HE4t Washer. I am getting an F02 error message. I've tried to rerun washer & get SUDS on and off. Fo2 message appears again and cycle shuts down. Door will not unlock. Any...


    HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

    If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

    Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

    NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

    Potential Causes

    • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
    • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
    • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
    • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

    My washer is flashing sud...what do i do?


    The following link explains the "SUD" error and how to correct:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r629564-suds_error_whirlpool_kenmore_front

    The error can be caused from obstructions in your drain pump (or lines) to using the wrong type (or too much) of detergent. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know what you find. This problem usually has a simple remedy that does not require a repairman. However, if you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Sorry, dryer doors are reversible, but not washer. Please don't rate this as anything but a FixYa lowers my overall score.

    F Code for the Kenmore Elite he4t Front Load Washer (3 years old)


    Hi! ricksmith
    What is the first three digits of the model number.
    The he4t I have reference to does not have a "F" code error. Most of the codes are two digit, PF, F1 to F9 etc.
    You could try: Pressing Pause/Cancel two times to clear code. As well as unplug for 20 seconds. Do you have power fluctuations in your area.

    Same problem with my front loader. You have to make sure to clean out the rubber trap in the front regularly. it seems to collect alot of hair and plug the drain hole. also it helps to leave the door open when you finish washing to further reduce the stagnant water smell. Use fabric softener for the towels!

    hope that helps.

    The F33 error code indicates a pump drive system error. If the pump ohms out correctly & the harness is secure I recommend replacing the CCU (central control unit).
    Please see the following image provided for instructions.

    Remember to disconnect power to the washer before attempting access.
