Are you getting any error codes? Have you checked the drain pump and hose for obstructions? For step-by-step instructions, please click on the following link:

If you believe you have a faulty drain pump, this additional link explains how to replace it:

If this is a simple matter of just needing to drain the washer, you can use the shop vac method, by removing the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pulling a suction on the drain line. If you do not own a shop vac, lay down some old towels under the washer and slowly open the clean out trap on the drain pump. Please let me know if you require further assistance. If you require a replacement pump, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the door opening). I hope you find this helpful to you.

The machine is locked and can't open with clothes washed inside,. Add garment light is on and the time is flashing'


Whirlpool-made Front Loading such as the Kenmore Elite washing machines use a door lock and switch assembly having a tab that can be pulled manually for emergency opening of the door. This tab can be accessed with the removal of the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the washer and drain the water from the tub before accessing it. The link below contains the detailed instructions on manual unlocking of the door.

I have the kennmore elite he3t. Error code f 02 and it will not drain Is there a solution to this problem you know of?


The fault code indicates a draining problem and the display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice. Either the pump filter is blocked, the drain hose is clogged/kinked, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working.

Disconnect power and
remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

CLEAN PUMP LIGHT COMES ON WHERE IS THE PUMP LOCATED


The pump is located behind front bottom panel on the right side assuming that your machine is a Whirlpool or Kenmore Front-Loader. Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem


We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Error message "F5"?


F5 is a Water Temperature Sensor Error If during the water heating step in wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error code will be displayed. If you are savvy enough to troubleshoot yourself, you can check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay. You should also check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay. As far as servicing goes, Sears and Whirlpool have service contracts on these appliances as the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet are the same machine made by Whirlpool. I hope this helps you.
