Hello,

This means the valve is bad. You can make this repair yourself. The top of the machine comes off three screws.

The valve is on the rear of the machine. I could look the part number up for you, let me know

Why can't I use liquid color-safe bleach in Kenmore Elite top loading washer?


IF the instructions advise against using bleach in that machine then it is probably because the bleach will affect certain parts / rubbers of the machine and will lead to costly repairs if used.. Try a bleach free soil remover like nappy-san or vanish pink in conjunction with a liquid detergent rather than a powder detergent

Remove the drawer detergent dispenser. Then feel around in the front of the empty drawer tray for any missing detergent caps or chunks of anything. This can cause your issue - and can be an easy fix.

My Kenmore Elite smells like mold!


Run a cycle ,no clothes in, with about 3 cups/ 750 ml of bleach in it. How? put a fil a plisticbag with the bleach and set it in the washer. It will tip up when you start the cycle. You should end up with a clean washer and clean empty bag.

Kenmore Elite HE4t wont rotate.


yes and no, I do not agree that not using he detergent will cause bad bearings but, if the bearing is bad and machine out of warranty, repair would easily be $600 making a new machine the best option. to flush out the old detergent run a empty wash of bleach or fabric softner.

My HE washer doesn't dispense the fabric softner


Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly

Kenmore elite washer smells


You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap.
