I dont know about it not going through the full cycle, but as for the bleach and softner dispenser problems, i had the same issue. About 7 months after i had this same machine,,, the softner would enter the cycle during the first rinse, which i supose isnt a major problem, but it was quite annoying because by the time the 4th rinse was over,,, there was obviously no softner left on the clothes. It was still under warrenty so i had sears come over. They replaced the control board, thinking it was a timing problem, but it didnt solve the problem. They scheduled me for another time, and again sent over a repairman who didnt know what he was doing. I being 20, like to take things apart and see why they broke or how they work, so i pretty much knew what the problem was. I told this second guy what i thought and he ordered the part, 2 weeks later came back after i had recieved the part, installed it, and PROBLEM SOLVED. So im thinkingthis could be the same problem your having. If you take out the detergent draw to clean it or for whatever reason, if u look inside, and up,,, you can see holes where the water drops from,,, and that is the part you probably need fixed. I really cant remember what the part is called,,, but im assuming its something like Detergent Dispenser Asembly or somethng like that.

Washing machine keeps draining during rinse


You may be experiencing a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore Super Capacity stuck on rinse


Krom, sounds like the machine is syphoning. Check the drain hose and make sure there is a air gap and that it is not too far down the standpipe or drain. To test it hold the drain hose right at the drain top and see if the problem stops...Catriver...post back.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
