Kenmore elite HE3t front loading washer not starting

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem

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.

My kenmore washing maching door is not opening

Hold in "end of cycle" for 3 seconds. Or if you have a pic of a "key" on one of the buttons, hold that in till the lock signal goes off.

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

Oder inside washer

On newer other machines, there is a cleanout cycle that uses 2/3 cup of bleach, no detergent and I believe uses more water. Suggest you use a load of white towels, no detergent, the bleach and put it through a normal or soak cycle where the bleach has a chance to kill off the germs and other bacteria, then rinses itself clean. They also recommend that the door be left open on these machines to allow the moisture to clear and dry assisting in curtailing further development of the same. The cleanout procedure they present is suggested for monthly using their special cycle which doesn't exist on my HE3T either. Hope this helps some. NOTE: There are cautions about leaving the high level of concentrations in the washer for extended periods or too often.
