Kenmore Elite Frontload washer

I bought my washer last year and have misplaced my booklet. The clothes are being washed but the water will not drain or the washer will not spin. The display panel shows an F02 code and continues to beep. What can I do? Please help me I am desperate.

Dea, F02 is the code for long drain. Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and 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. See if the washer comes back to life...Catriver..post back

Had same problem. Followed Catriver's advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

HE3T Kenmore Frontload Washer Random Draining Problems

The water pumped goes right back into the machine. It may be because the washer is siphoning the water from the laundry tub with a slow drain and back. Your solutions are advised but try this also:
  1. Check the pump impeller for obstruction.
  2. Cut the drain hose into the laundry tub in excess of 4 inches.

Our kenmore elite frontload washer drains too soon

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Machine will not switch to drain and spin cycle

If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.

Leaking washer

Replace the valve, or if new, have them do it. You are sure it is the valve and not where the hot warter hose attaches? Confirm by hooking up hot water under preasure to see if that seals itself.

Power out when running. showed code F 71 now not working.

After power outage that will happen do this to fix.
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call
for service.

Washer was disconnected, after reconnect, will not work.

Why was it disconnected in the first place, and what is disconnected, from the plug, breaker, where?

Easy fix can be to simply remover the power cord from the outlet for 20 minutes, make sure the water valves are on, both hot and cold, see if removing the power will reset the machine.

If not write back and we go from there.

Kenmore elite washer problem

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
