Open Question

Kenmore model# 417.29042991 front load washer won't drain. I can hear some clicks and electrical humming like its trying to do something, but then just continues to agitate until the en of the cycle. Won't go into spin cycle ,I presume because the washer is still full of water.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: top load washer machine will not agitate

Hi There,
Check to see that the belt is being driven by the motor when it goes into the wash cycle. Let me know if this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

SOURCE: Kenmore washer will not spin or drain water,agitate works fine

Sounds like a lid switch. there should be a hole under the lid on the right side about the size of a dime. Make sure the plastic "flipper" is inside and "clicks" when you push down on it with a pen.

SOURCE: replaced motor,now won`t spin

Something is locked in the transmission--can you turn the inner tub manually? Also, try to turn the driven pulley (the motor and belt driven). The problem could be anything from a seized bearing to a broken gear. Don't keep trying the motor while things are locked up, you could burn it out.

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.

My Kenmore HE2 front load washer when I go to start a load of clothes it's making a humming sound and not filling up with water?


Either one of your water valves isn't working properly, or the lines have sediment restricting the volume of water . What I would do is turn the water to the machine off and remove the water lines and make sure they aren't filled will calcium, etc. and look in the water valves where the hoses connect because that are, which has a screen, may be full of nastiness. If both those are good then the water valve solenoid(s) are stuck and won't open. The humming sound you hear lets you know the rest of the machine is working because the sound is generated by power being applied to the valve by the control.

I have a model 417 Kenmore front load washer which stopped running and shows a E 20 error message in the window. What does that mean and how can I get it operating again?


E20 error code means that the control does not see it draining water out.
When you start the washer, you should hear the drain pump running or at least making a humming noise.

A service technician would:
- Check the drain hose for restrictions
- Start the washer and listen for the drain pump operating.
- If the drain pump is not operating, a technician would then check the voltage supply to the drain motor.

The technician would remove the lower access panel by removing the screws located along the bottom of the panel to access the drain pump assembly.

If you take off your lower front access panel click this link and check item number "18": Parts_Diagram

You will see the pump inside the bottom of it, with the 2 black rubber hoses attached to it. Here is the pump sample: drain-pump-assembly Try to look this part with the correct model number of your device.

Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore top load washer model 20692. The washer won't drain and whenever the washer is supposed to turn all I hear is a hum. What could be the problem and is it worth fixing in a 10 year old...


Hi,
Sounds like you have multiple problems...you are right... probably not worth fixing...
Look at the front loaders... they use way less water and are more gentile on your clothing...

Kenmore Washer will not drain


Hi, When the the water is suppose to be draingin, do you hear the motor humming at all?
It could be that something is plugging the pump. You can tip the washer toward the wall and look underneath. The pump is right behind the front panel and easy to get to. You can try lowering the drain hose into a bucket and see if the water will release.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

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.
