WILL HE4T RUN WITH KICK PANEL AND BACK PANEL OFF?

I AM TESTING VARIOUS COMPONENTS AND CANT GET A SUCCESSFUL TAKE-OFF WITH MY WASHER WHILE THE PANELS ARE OFF. IT TURNS FOR A COUPLE ROTATIONS AND THEN WINDS DOWN TO THE DREADED F06 EROR.I WONDER IF I MUST REINSTALL THE KICK PLATE AND BACK PANEL FOR IT TO WORK AFTER NOTICING A SMALL PRESSURE SWITCH BEHIND EACH PANEL?

The washer will run without the panels in place. As a technician it is common practice to troubleshoot with the bottom panel and/or back panel removed in order to see if certain components are working. The "F06" error is a motor speed problem. With this fault, the washer will shut down if the motor speed is not detected, or reach optimum rpms. The fault is usually caused by a failure of the Motor Control Unit (MCU) or Drive Motor. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:

Washer leaks after it starts to agitate. It seems to be coming from the front of the washer. Thanks for any help.


To find where the leak is coming from, remove the 2 bottom bolts on the lower kick panel and remove panel. Next, remove the 2 bolts holding the upper front panel and remove it also. Now, with the front panels removed, run the washer and look for where it is leaking from. Repost your observations.

Washer showing error code SUD


any f35? or is it just sud?
is it green?
if it is just sud and happens towards the end of the cycle take your kick panel off....3...7 millimeter screws or t15 torques whatever you have will work.
twist off the pump catch see what's inside...if there is socks and debrie you fixed your problem.
if it happens at the beginning you have a bad pressure switch usually happens on the steam washers....what color is it?

When you push the start button the door locks but nothing else happens. no error code comes up either.


Your timer is likely bad.
Can you advance to another part of the cycle manually, and it operate normally?
There are a few other situations - like a faulty pressure switch, faulty water inltet solenoid etc.
There should be a service manual included (inside) the machine. Usually behind the back panel or kick panel.
This will guide you troubleshooting the various components.

Kenmore he4t washer


Sounds like you need a new water valve (some debris inside the valve causing it to not fully close). These are availible from your local appliance parts store or on line from the manufacture. Once you have your replacement, just take the #20 torx screws out of the top panel and remove it. Your valve should be on the back left hand side.

What is kenmore he4t button sequence for


If the washer does not come equipped with a "Clean" cycle, then run the washer on it's hottest setting. "Sanitary" or "Whitest Whites" will do. Hope this helps.
