Question about Kenmore 4292x Front Load Washer

Low Water Level - Kenmore Elite HE3t - 42932

I've owned the washer and dryer pair for about 6 years. Not real happy with the quality of the products, and certainly not happy with Sears Service. I'm wanting to know if there is a test to know if the tub is filling with enough water? I feel as if the water level isn't high enough, for some reason. In the past, I've called Sears Service and they just start replacing parts until they think they have fixed it (thank goodness for extended warranty), but now, my homeowner's warranty is footing the bill, and their guys don't seem to know the product very well. I'm hoping there is a test, or someone that would know how high in an empty tub should the water level be? Thank you for your time.

I would like to know the same thing. How high should the water level be in an HE5t? The serviceman didn't seem to know.

That is a water level sensor, if it is still in warranty contact the manufacturer. If not look for the sensor and check for loose wires, if not loose wires replace the sensor.

I have a kenmore elite HE3t and it has an F20 error code. What does this mean?


Hello,

The F20 error code means; no water was detected entering washer or pressure switch trip was not detected after 6 minutes

Many times that is caused by a blockage a pinched fill hose,or the filter screen on back of washer where hoses attach to are clogged

Good luck,i hope this helps

Washing machine flashing FH and beeping


This should take 30 minutes: Remove the panel that is located below the front door, there are 3 small screws located at the bottom that hold this... you will see the water pump, which has a access screw plug. Unscrew this, its like a filter, you may see stuff, like coins, socks, etc, remove and clean out, then put
everything back... this should fix the issue.

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.

Got a Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load washer from my old man, hasn't been used in 5 years... sat in my basement for the first month i lived here unhooked and unused... FINALLY, got a dryer, hook everything...


A burst hose or a broken hose connector clamp most likely. Open the back after disconnecting power. Use bright flashlightto see where its dripping from and confirm the hose-clamp is brokem/ open or a connecting hose is burst. Carry broken hose to hardware store like Rona for a replacement tubing, cut to size and re-instal, voila!

Kenmore elite he3t steam front loader - 110.4674-2 --- f35


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Not a problem ... Just bought a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer & dryer and read bad evals on Sears.com.....are these good machines, or should I change my order?


I would send it back ASAP, had our Kenmore Elite front loaders for less than 2 years and it has been nothing but trouble, so far it has cost us $200.00 in repair fees and washer still not fixed, expecting another so called Sears expert out tomorrow that will be another $129.00 for just showing up without guaranteeing he will fix anything.i

Kenmore elite washing machine spin cycle slow. The clothes are still dripping wet when removed from the washer.


In my HE3T, this was indicative of the water pump going out. In its 8th year, my HE3T is now on its 3rd water pump.
