Question about Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite HE5t washing machine. After pressing start for the wash cycle, it has a clicking sound eminating from the detergent drawer area or top left of the machine. It appears that the detergent is not being flushed down into the drum as it usually would be.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle


This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

Kenmore elite HE31 front loader will not start but has power


This seems to be a problem in the start switch diode. If all works fine, but will not push and start and all cycles seem to work when working it manually, this is in the switch timer electronic diode is not working properly. Sometimes a code will not come up, because cycles are still working when manually changing wash cycles. There is seperate switch or electronic trigger that starts the machine, and has probably worn out or not making good contact. If you can unplug machine and then take off panel, trying spraying behind start switch with electronic cleaner to free up any possible dust or dirt. Might get lucky.

Where does the detergent go and where do i put the fabric softerner? I am using a Kenmore Elite front load washer. thanks, Adriana


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.

Cheers,
John C

Sud message


Sud: Suds lock (overdose of detergent detected during wash cycle)
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the
current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential Suds
Lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load,
excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
Possible causes/procedure:
¦ If too much detergent was used:
-Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
-Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
.

My Kenmore Elite HE5t washer flashes SUD continually, then goes to F35 mode and shuts off. Help!


Sometimes the SUDS/F35 is because of TOO MUCH detergent. To clear you have to set the cycle on rinse and then keep pouring cups of water into the detergent container as the cycle is going. You might have to do this a few times because if the SUDS message comes up the water flow will stop. Just unplug and try again. Also when the detergent container is finally clear you will see the little rotators gears move around when the cycle starts.

Detergent drawer filled with water


remove the drawer and clean the siphon it sounds as if it is blocked up either with powder or concentrated fabric softener. this should fill up with water and then empty itself due to gravity. the siphon should look like an upside down cup on a cylinder.
