E10 code on my kenmore front loading washer


This can mean 1 or 2 things

No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.

Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

If there is no water in the unit:
1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
3. Verify inlet valve operation

  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation
OR it could mean

Motor Control Unit (MCU) Heat Sink Thermal Trip
If the thermal protector on the MCU heat sink gets too hot, it will open the thermal protector on the heat sink which will stop motor functions and an "E10" will be displayed
  • Check for Proper Installation, verify the unit is not located near a source of heat and has proper ventilation.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  • Check MCU
  • Check Motor

There is a laundry washer on the floor above me and I am connected to the same drain in my kitchen sink. I am getting backflow in my sink when the machine is used.I get water and soap suds. How can I deal...


You need to get a one way valve fitted in the pipe just before it hits the main waste pipe. This will ensure that as soon as any backpressure is exerted that the valve closes and your sink etc will not fill with waste. This is a potential health hazard to you so I would suggest it is fitted ASAP.

My front load Kenmore washer has a f03 code on the screen. It is not draining the water and it is not doing a max spin. What do you think I need to do?


F03 error code means that there is either fill problem, a drain problem or a water level pressure switch failure .

First ensure the machine is filling.
When the drain system is causing the F03 error do the following.

Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the drain hose is OK check the drain pump.

Start unplugging washer from main and remove the service panel at the bottom.

Follow the instructions on manual to remove panel.

Access the water pump and remove the hoses, clear any blockage in there.

Use a container to collect the water, be prepared. If machine has lot of water inside, remove some water with a sponge before undoing the pump.

Water gets into disher when not inuse


dishwasher drain enters sewer system tapped into waste pipe below kitchen sink
water flowing from kitchen sink passes the opening of the dishwasher pipe
If the dishwasher hose does not loop up higher than the kitchen sink before going down to the bottom of the dishwasher water may flow downhill through the dishwasher drain into the dishwasher
ensure the dishwasher drain hose is screwed to the underside of the kitchen counter, to provide a stop to water flow.
The installation instructions suggest this
but often the dishwasher is at the end of its 'stretch'
and the installer assumes looping is just to use up excess hose, and doesnt.
an extension drain hose is available at most appliance stores

Kenmore HE4T Washer Leak


there are 2 possible causes.
either
inlet valve leaking - turn water off and if water fill stops, it indicates valve leaking
valve being powered when machine off. this is very unlikely but to check, disconnect washer and see if problem stops
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, every time you empty the sink, some of the water will flow into the machine. to cure this, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck

My washer wont drain


Either your pipe to sink is clogged or nearly clogged or the pump on the washer is about to give out. Does the water spray out vigorously when using the container, or does it just flow out?

DISPENSER WILL NOT DRAIN


Waag, pull that dispenser drawer out of there, push down on the tab-left side in the back. Now take your index finger and see if you have something blocking the water feed hole to the tub. It will be on the inside front. Sometimes I find bottle cap disks blocking the inlet. Start a cycle with the drawer out of there and observe the water flow, if it's backing up, you have something blocking that inlet. You can always pause/cancel. Catriver.
