Lights on Front Panel Flashing

Hi,

I have a Kenmore Elite HE 3t. The other day I was washing and it stopped in the middle of the wash. All of the lights on the front panel were flashing. I unplugged it for about 10 minutes assuming that it would reset itself, but it didn't. I had a SEARS technician come out and he told me that it was the main board. Well, I had the main board replaced today, and that was not the problem. Mind you this is the 3rd person in two weeks to look at my washer. This last guy is thinking that is could be the front panel that has gone out. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    Is it flashing an error code or are all of the lights flashing? If ALL of the lights are flashing and the main board has been replaced, the it probably is the display board. If sears has repaired it and not corrected the problem, they have a 90 warranty on the work they do.

Another posibility is the door lock switch is broken. When you open the door, on the middle right hand side there should be a small pin sticking out from the washer that the door pushes on.

Unplug the machine for an hour to reset the computer

Clean the filter The panel below the door has 3 screws (mine was a star shaped screw). The white cap screws off. yopu may have to cancell the error using "stop".

It wont drain and wont spin. It is flashing F and DL. I have a Kenmore Elite HE 3t


Hi, most common problem is the pump gets plugged. Take off the loser front panel and you can see the pump front middle. It has an access that you can unscrew and see what is in it. You can get the water out of the machine by using a shop vac and **** the water out of the drain hose. This will let you get all the water out. If you have a floor drain, you can lay the drain hose in it to release MOST not ALL of the water.
If I can assist you fyrther, please let me know.

THanks

Kenmore elite 3t the front light to select wash blinks but when s


Press 'drain' & 'spin' together for 3 seconds to see if it clears. This is your control panel lock.
If not cleared unplug the washer & wait for 30 minutes for the CCU (computer) to reset.

*&^% screws!!!


F2 = Long Drain. Most common cause is something (or lots of things) stuck in the drain pump. There are screws at the bottom of the front panel that can be removed to check it out. If the screws look like stars they are Torx head screws, get driver from most home centers.

F 11 Error Code


The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
