"F20" error code is indicating that no water is detected entering the machine or the pressure switch trip is not detected. If after 30 seconds of filling with water and the minimum of 0.11 of water is not detected entering or the maximum fill time of 16 minutes is exceeded, the valves will turn off and the error code will be displayed. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If you have verified the water pressure is fine, you may have a faulty Flow Meter. You could remove the cold and hot water supply lines, after shutting the water off of course, at the washer and then look to see if the filter screen is restricted inside the water inlet valve on the washer.

The first would be to blow through the pressure switch hose towards the tub. You should be able to blow through the hose without much force. If the air trap the hose is hooked up to is blocked then the pressure switch will not see the water entering the tub. With the tub empty blow through the hose and then hook it back up and see if there is any improvement.

Kenmore Quiet Pak 4 front loader washer machine, sanitary cycle only runs with warm water and 35 minutes. Can anything be done to get it to run with hot or hottest water temp and more time?


IF you take the front panel off that is under the door, there is a service technicians sheet in a plastic envelope on the frame, when you get it, use it enter the codes on the controls to get to diagnostics. It will self test everything and tell you what is wrong.

Press and hold "end of cycle" at the right end of your panel for 3 - 5 seconds. The machine power should be on.

How many gallons of water does it take to fill my Kenmore Elite King size Capacity Quiet Pak II Washing machine


You can figure it out by catching the water for 10 seconds in a container and measure the amount and multiply that by 6 to see how much you get in a minute then see how many minutes it takes to fill it out and multiply that by the amount you get in 1 minute.

Error code F21 - thanks for your help


The F21 error code is an indication that the unit has too long of a drain out condition. If the control calls for the unit to drain & the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop & flash the F21 error code. I would recommend checking the drain pump & pressure switch circuit.

Clear pump of debris. Tilt machine. Take off front panel. Unscrew large white drain plug. Remove debris.

Unplug from power source...remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw wirh 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel)...open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clokwise, lookout! lots of water will gush out... back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump)...re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. That will help get rid off the debris.

It can be done if you are patient and able to figure out how the plastic thing comes apart. Good luck!
