My kenmore 417 wahser making too much noise, it looks like the inner tub hitting the outer plastic housing. How can I fix it?


Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!

Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader F-11 and FDL codes


yes!! the F/11 is triggered under high voltage conditions like high speed spinning. The part is called the MCU motor control unit. if it goes into failure while using your machine and locks the door, just wait 3 minutes and the door will unlock after the MCU resets. Try using you machine with a low speed spin for awhile.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 Tearing holes in my clothes


Are you using HE ( high efficiency ) detergent?

If you are using regular detergent the machine may be sensing all those bubbles and may be working longer to get rid of them.

Try using a net/lingerie bag for delicate clothes.

This type of washing machine works by sensing when the clothes are saturated then it will start to tumble back and forth, and it will continually drain out the dirty soapy water and bring in clean soapy water, then spin out and go into the rinse cycle..

It's all done by the machine sensing when it's time to go to the next cycle.

I am wondering if you are maybe using too much detergent.. Only use the max of 3 tablespoons of HE detergent if you have hard water and 1 tablespoon if you have soft water.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore HE3 stuck in delay cycle and won't unlock or cancel


YOu more than likely have suds in your washer, or an extremely unbalanced load. push the pause cancel button twice, that should unlock the washer. open the washer, and look inside. Is there a lot of suds, or towels that are tangled up? If so, add some fabric softener to the wash tub and do a rinse drain spin (for suds) for the extremely unbalanced load, take the towels (or what ever load you are doing) and put about 1/2 of them in. I have the same washer and have experienced this "problem" once or twice in 7 years. And those were the two culprits. Hope that helps

My HE3 washer, about 4 yrs old is locked , showed error code 6


Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed. Due to this the machine shut itself down.

HE3 washer not drying the cloths


I had this problem a few months ago and it turned out to be a bad water pump; I replaced it myself and it was incredibly easy. The hardest part was removing the front panel, below the door because the screws are under a lip, about half an inch off the ground. When you get it off, the pump mechanism will be right in front of you. The pump is on the right side of the mechanism and is screwed into the plastic part. When I removed it, the impeller (a small, ribbed plastic part that spins and moves the water) was broken off from the motor. You can buy the whole pump mechanism from Sears for about $100 and install it yourself. Just follow the directions that come with it!!! Hope this helps.
