Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

Ran HE3 without Water, it's now locked up

We went on vacation, and turned off the water. When we returned, my wife tried to run the machine without turning the water back on.

It ran for a while and then began beeping. I turned the water back on, but to no avail. It now seems to be in a drain mode, the door is locked and we can't seem to abort the cycle or restart.

Is there any way to reset this thing (unplugging and plugging in again does not seem to reset it).

Unplug the washer and wait 30 minutes, sometimes the next morning for the machine to reset. Make sure the water is on because it while find multiple failures and lock up, Secondly you can try putting the machine into diagnostic cycle to ensure it is ok. Press drain/spin and select no spin for spin speed finally press prewash quickly two or three times and let it run, any flashing codes?, hit prewash again after writing the codes down.

Nespresso Maestria pump isn't primed


We had the same problem and were ready to return the device when we were able to fix it. Here is what we did:
1. Fill the water tank all of the way and place in machine
2. Let the tank sit in position for a few hours (we let ours sit for 3)
3. Run the descaling option
4. Run a few cycles of the "longo"
5. If the machine is still not working repeat the process (Ours started to run after the 2nd cycle)

It just appears that the pumps are shipping with air in them and needs patience to get it out. Once you get it going though you won't regret it :)

Doesn't drip through. Don't know where the coffee water went to?


When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.

Ran without water will not fill now


Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first

Front Load Washing Machine Filling On It's Own


the inlet valves are shot. what happens the coils in the inlet vales can no longer hold the water from going into the unit, causing water to run into unit when not in use. replace the inlet valves and you should be good to go. the inlet valves can be removed by, removing top panel(3screws in back), disconnecting hoses, taking the small clamp on the small hose connected to the dispenser. theirs a small screw holding the inlet valves from back pane, remove old inlet valves and replace and you should be all set. hope it helps.
