Getting the cover off of the kenmore elite front load washer

I don't know how to remove the front pannel of the washer to check if anything is trapped in there. It won't take a normal screw driver is there a special tool needed?

Washer displays "suds" and then "f 35" and will not operate? what is this code and how can it be repaired?


Hi,
Just tilt the washer back and prop it up with some wood blocks. Three screws are right on the front at the very bottom. Use a 9/32 socket to remove them. The front cover slides right off. The drain trap cleanout is right in the middle. Turn the large white knob counter-clockwise to remove it and clean.


Thank you !!

LOCATION OF LINT TRAP?


Remove 3 screws from the bottom front panel and drop it down. The pump will be in front of you on the bottom.

Getting an F 02 error code with my Kenmore Elite HE 3T


Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and other stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels and unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.

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

How do you open the front cover for Kenmore front loader 110.42926200


Sure thing, under the door is a kick panel, held on by three hex screws,standard uses 1/4 inch and torx uses a 9/32 socket. A slight down tug will loosen the panel and behind that you will see the pump at right front. Just to the left is a round soda can shaped housing with a large turn screw lid attached to the pump. Grab a bucket and some towels, unscrew the lid like a jar of peanut butter slowly to let the water into the bucket. This may require two trips and some getting wert. The trap is attached and easy to clean. Next reach behind a gently shake the black boot joining the tub to the pump for coins and lint. The last item is getting a bright light and inspecting the pump through the small hole right side that can be seen once the trap is removed. Check for debris then put a finger in the hole and check the impeller for disconnection from debris/
