Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a load in....it is full of water....it wont drain and spin...the cancel button doesnt work and door wont open....I checked for kinks in drain hose...none. I took off top panel and front lower panel and manually opened the door. It looks like the little pump at the bottom of the drain hose is trying to push out water,but only a little comes out. Right before the pump, there is a big white 2'' plastic drain that is facing me, and it was full of water. Is there some kind of filter in the pump that I could check out with out breaking it? Is it the pump? Our family laundry is piling up quickly! Please help.Thank you. Mr.Smith

Wont drain


First Try Unplugging the washer for 15 minutes. Sounds like the pump is the issue. Was it a normal load of clothes or a Bath rug or blanket?After you plug the unit in try to select rinse/drain Or drain/spin.
If it starts try to cancel the cycle. The washer should drain the water out for you. Pls update when you can.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

Wahing machine wont spin out with full load .will with small load


I would check to see if you have a kink in your drain hose. The timer allows the same amount of time to drain if it is a full load or a 1/2 load. If the drain hose is kinked it restricts the volume of water being drained leaving water in the tub when doing a full load.

Maytag neptune front load washer says control lock and wont start and buttons wont work


unplug the washer for 15 minutes then:plug it back in and, restart a few times in a different cycle canceling each time until the door opens. Do this only if the tub is not full of water if it is let me know and, i'll show you how to drain the washer first before we try to open the door.

Error Code


Hi, I just brought home a Duet and have been getting the H F alarm almost every load. The control panel isn't resetting and attempting to spin out water won't start. The inside is dark and doesn't look overly filled with water. Sound familar.

What I discovered in attempting to see if there was a water level visible in the door, was that in briefly tilting the machine the panel then resets and I can start a new cycle to either rinse or spin out the current load and the door will open also.

I will be checking tomorrow with a level to see if the machine is not level and may be affecting the water level monitor.
