Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Flashing F and alarm

I have a kenmore H3t washing machine. It is 3 years old. I was washing a small load when we heard a beeping sound. The washer was flashing F, it has water in it, it was about 11 minutes from completion. I tried to restart without success, I tried rinse and drain without success. I can hear water being added and hear a humming sound but no aggitation or draining. I've unplugged the unit, hoping to reset it, but no success. Now I can't even get the door open.
Thanks,

Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.... Hope this helps

Door locks, but will not fill up with water. Alarm sounds and lights flash once every minute or so


There is a rectangular magnet attached on the inside of the drawer for the detergent. Located on the right hand side near the front of the drawer. This magnet had come loose. Some glue and caulking worked well and the washer is working fine now. Meant to post this weeks ago.

Washer full and then stops and gives a beep while flashing F 51


On Kenmore F51 means Motor RPS Failure, the motor is not spinning or the motor sensor detects a fault.First unplug the power cord for one hour or so to check if it is a jammed sensor, and see if reset.

F2 and beeping


The F2 error is the user control board gone south on you, a new board will fix the machine, as always do you own your home and does the insurance cover appliances?

3 audible beeps every 20-25 seconds


Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.
