What error code are you receiving? You can refer to the tech sheet that came with your washer for in-depth advice. You can access it by locating and removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error code definitions, test points, diagnostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshooting and repair of your washer.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.



If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Have a top loading Kenmore elite high efficiency washer model 796.2927, 2 years old this thanksgiving is showing erroe code LE? what do i do to fix?


On most Kenmore front load washers the LE error indicates a LOCKED MOTOR ERROR. This can be caused by:

  1. Loose motor harness connection.
  2. Failed HALL SENSOR.
  3. Failed STATOR.
  4. Failed ROTOR (cracked magnet).

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

Our washing machine will not drain, and keeps bringing up "LD" error code. It keeps beeping and the timer isn't going down.


  1. residential washer displays error codes. Though designed to indicate the nature of the error, to anyone without a copy of a washer manual handy, the codes might as well be Martian cryptography. Luckily, the Manage My Life website has partnered with Kenmore and made manuals for each make and model of Kenmore washer available online. The error codes are differentiated between top and front-loading machines.
  2. FH Error Code
  3. When a front-loading Kenmore residential washer displays the "FH" error code, the machine is experiencing a water-inlet problem. A water-inlet problem is the result of the washer receiving too little water to operate. The Kenmore owner's manual suggests five home remedies for this problem: Check that the water faucets connected to the washer are turned on; that the inlet screens in the washer's connection hose are not clogged; that the hose is not kinked; and that the hose is not frozen. If none of these problems are present, turn off the washer, unplug it, plug it back in, and restart the machine.
  4. FL Error Code
  5. The "FL" error code on a top-loading Kenmore residential washer indicates that the machine has over filled. When a residential Kenmore washer is overfull, it will beep every 10 seconds. The pump will cycle on and off every 30 seconds in an attempt to rectify the problem. To stop the pump or restart the machine, either disengage and then re-engage the power source to the washer, or push the overfill reset switch. If water continues to enter the machines after the "FL" error has appeared, shut off the inlet flow faucet or the machine will overflow.
  6. F02 Error Code
  7. The "F02" error code on a front-loading Kenmore residential washer indicates that the machine is experiencing a drainage problem. Home-remedy solutions for this error code, as suggested by the Kenmore manual, are similar to those for the "FH" error code: Insure that the drainage hose is not kinked, frozen, or clogged. If none of these problems are present, check that the hose is less than 96 inches, or 8 feet, above the floor. A hose more than eight feel from the floor will not drain properly

F02 Error Code & SUD message


Knowing from our washer, the SUD code is too much foam from the detergent. Since most soaps today are highly concentrated, or High Efficiency soap, try using less soap as a starter. :)

Beep with a display saying EFO


Dear novscorp,
According to the error code chart (a loose insert included with the operating instructions) EF0 means two things: Error 1. Over sudsing  or  Error 2. Hot water does not enter.
For over sudsing, it lists the possible causes as: a high efficiency detergent was not used (the detergent brand will have "he" on it for high efficiency) or too much detergent was added.  The solution lists: Use only a high efficiency detergent.  Follow manufacturer's recommendation for dosage.  Amount may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, load size and soil level.  
For the 2nd error, hot water does not enter, it lists the possible causes as hot water hose is connected to the wrong faucet or hot water faucet is not turned on.  The solution lists: Connect hot water hose to hot water faucet and hot inlet on washer.  Be sure hot water facet is fully opened.
On a personal note, I received the same error when I mixed my detergent directly in with my color safe bleach.  It just caused a lot of suds in the machine.  One rinse cycle solved it.
Hope this helps, Ellenk4
