Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore, He4T washer, Washer had run on the heavy duty cycle. The clothes eventually finished. We only use HE approved soaps. When we went to run next load, we pushed the cycle we wanted to select. I saw 3:15 on the timer and all lights began flashed in sporadic pattern, the lights in the area where you select specific for your cycle stayed on. I tried closing the door a couple times and holding the pause/cancel button, no results. I left the machine, then about 30 minutes later a steady beep started that wouldn't stop. I finally unplugged machine. When plugged in no response from any buttons, won't go into test mode. Repair history replaced CCU with new unit about 1 or 2 years ago for an f. code

There are several problems with the wiring harness and CCU being a problem on this model. I would start there first. Have a look at all the plugs that interface between the CCU (Central Control Unit), MCU (Motor Control Unit) and the Interface boards for any loose or burnt wires or components. The CCU has probably gone out again on you I am sad to say. Over time the CCU tends to take quite a bit of punishment from heating. I even had a customer that after replacing the CCU several times, installed a cooling fan over the CCU and has not had a problem since.
Have a great New Years!

Kenmore Elite HE4T standing water

I also have standing water after a wash cycle, but not immediately after. Given the history of very expensive repairs to this Kenmore HE4T washing machine, I suggest you do what I do, if the machine is still cleaning the clothes. Whatever cycle you use, try to be around when the machine finishes, so that you can turn off the water supply and remove the damp clothes to the dryer or clothes line. Turn on the water supply only when you want to use the machine. This works for me because I don't do many loads per week and my laundry area is right next to my kitchen. If it was in my basement, I'd have replaced it already with a top loading machine with mechanical not electronic controls.

Kenmore Washer Won't Drain

yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.

the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.
