Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the answer you requested and a little more.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) how do you get the round service cap off the front - macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).


4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with thow do you get the round service cap off the front - macmarkus_32.jpg.

Washer has stopped and error says suds or blocked pump


Hi, there is a round cover on the front left corner. Install a pick in the small hole and turn the cover. You will see a twist cap behind the cover. Unscrew the cap and remove what ever is blocking the pump from turning. Watch out because the water in the tub will drain out.

That should fix the problem....

I'm getting an F2 code on my Kitchaide front load


F2 on this unit is long drain. Take the front lower cover off (3 screws on the bottom) and you will see a round white cover about 4 inches round. That is the pump clean out. Before you twist that cap off be aware the water will come out have some towels ready. Take the cap off and you will see all the junk in there remove it and replace the cap. Thats it good luck..

Every time I do a wash load on either daily wash or quick was my machine comes up with clean filter after its been through two thirds of the washing cycle and doesn't spin or empty. can u please advise?


There is a access panel that comes off/opens on the front bottom of the machine or back.
Open it and look for the round cap/plug that unscrews appro 3"round
Unscrew to take out the strainer, it is blocked
Be aware that you will need a pan and towel because water left in the drum will leak ou through here when removed.
Just loosen cap until pan is full and close, repeat until empty
Hope this helps

Washer does not finish wash cycle. flashes F-21 half way through. Detergent is used up bu does not get to where is uses the fabric softener.


the filter/strainer is partially blocked. Take the kick panel or inspection cover off the bottom of the unit at the front(sometimes back) and you will see a round plastic cap that unscrews approx 3" round.After removing it you can pull the strainer out of it and clean it, there may be some residual water so have a towel or tray ready.Hope tis helps, any questions go ahead and ask

We saw water leaking out of the soap compartment at the top of the washer, close to the end of a washing cycle. What could be the problem?


access the service panel usually at the front on the bottom or back, and unscrew the round cap that contains the filter/strainer and make sure it is not blocked. Sounds lie it is restricted causing slow drain.Please let me know if this helps

Just started clicking. No action. Water will not


Locate the pump cover at the bottom, front of w/m. Pry the round cap out from the top with a small screw driver and unscrew the cap anticlockwise.
Clean the inside of coins, bits of cloth etc. This may solve your problem.

Kenmore front load won't drain


Try this, on the access panel below the door(panel that goes across the front of the washer) remove the attaching screws at the bottom corners and pull the panel off, you should see a round,white plastic cap with finger hold bar across the middle of it, unscrew the cap by turning it counter clockwise, pull it towards you to open the trap,clean the filter trap out completely and reverse the order you took it apart to put it back togrether, try running the machine as normal. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!


Probably something caught in pump. Remove lower panel if this one has it and you will see the pump. Loosen the round cover in middle to access clean-out.
