F32 is the code for a Water Level Switch Failure.
1. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer.
2. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, fastened to the side with a plastic snap. In will have a wire connector and a small, rubber hose connected to it.
3. Check to make sure all the connector wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer for 30 seconds to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32 code, you'll need to replace the Water Level Switch.
4. If the Water Level Switch does not eliminate the F32 code, it then the machine controller may have failed.

My washer stopped midwash. It is beeping and shows 'f' 'h' on the display


Them HE washer machine only use 1 gal of water to wash them clothes. You go puttin in over a teaspoon of HE in there and that washer gonna go into a tailspin I garontee. You probably gonna need to remove that bottom service panel and clean them pump out. That tech sheet will be up in there some6faee41.jpgwhere and that will give an indication of your fault. But clogged filtersf966917.jpg and too much soap is what kills these puppys. Yup operator error. OOpz.

A technician once told me to run my Kenmore Elite 3t ( without clothing ) with some bleach to clean the machine on the inside. I do not have a "clean machine" cycle. However I don't remember how much...


Hello , pour the bleach into where the soap would go [about 2 cups], then fill your softner and bleach containers up as well , run a normal wash with an extra rinse , the bleach will not hurt it so the more the better but to a certain point. this should fix alot of the noticible mildew but to get it all use a brush and scrub with bleach.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there

Kenmore elite washer smells


You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap.

F 11 Error Code


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