Remove drain hose in back and make sure it is not plugged with hair. also there is a drain hole between the rubber seals in the front of the washer just inside the door that always seems to plug with hair. When you remove the drain hose make sure to look inside the hole where the hose connects to the washer.

hope that works!

My kenmore he2 front loader is not going threw the wash cycle, but all the lights come on and the door is locked what could be wrong?


Hum may have a bad water pressure switch? It detirmines when the wash cycle should start according to the water level. if bad it will not signal the appliance to start washing. Also may want to check ur door lock switch if its bad it wont go into wash either.

Kenmore washing machine not empyting all the way during the rinse cycle? the machine washes fine but not empyting all the water during the rinse cycle?


Does it go into high speed spin? If it does and there is still water than check to see if the filter or hoses are clogged. The hoses the run from your basket to the pump and the drain hose too. A washer is only given so much time to drain all the water. Most of the time the filter or coin trap hose is clogged. If everything is clear u may have a weak pump.

Dryer takes 3-4 cycles to dry clothes


Hi first are you sure your heating element is good and working is the dryer getting hot in side when you open door to check clothes.if they are and you are sure the duct work is clear and no clogs, you might try this I have heard this from other people take your lint filter out and wash good with hot soapy water they say that after so long using dryer sheets this filter can get a invisible coating on it.
Hold the filter under water and see if it will holds water I know it sounds crazy but I have heard it from more than one source.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

Same problem with my front loader. You have to make sure to clean out the rubber trap in the front regularly. it seems to collect alot of hair and plug the drain hole. also it helps to leave the door open when you finish washing to further reduce the stagnant water smell. Use fabric softener for the towels!

hope that helps.

Bad smell


washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
