Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

All cycle indicator lights are ON !!

All of the cycle indicator lights are ON after the washing circle. It does not go to the next spining step. I unplugged the machine and waited, powered it back on to "drain and spin" since It stopped the rinse and spin cycle before it was done. Still all lights are blinking Any help ? Thanks

    Thanks for your comments but I found the solution.
    I removed the front cover (three screws at front). There you could see the main pipe drain line(WHITE). Just open that drain and by surprise a pair of sox from my little kid. It was blocking the rinse and draining circle. I wonder how it when thru. No more issues so far.
    Hope it can helps others

    We had the same problem with our wash machine and we unscrewed the three screws on the bottom panel and unscrewed the white drain tube and found three color catcher in there (don't use those things they get in thur the rubber and then into the drain tube). Thanks for the good advice you saved us a service charge.

Your solutions were perfect, it had 3 dollars in coins and safety pins sitting in the tray. Just a note, before you unscrew the white tup, get a bowl, becasue you may have a large aomunt of water. thanks again save me a call to the repair man and then have to sit betwwen 9-5 for him/her to show.

I had the same exact problem and your post solved it completely! Thanks for saving me lots of $$$ by not having to call the service repair guy. Cleaning the trap and removing a child's sock did the trick.

Hi there - yes! we did have the problem fixed. Thankfully, we were still under warranty and the machine needed a new COMPUTER in it!!! can you believe it? it didn't cost us anything since we were still under warranty. and the service guy said this happens pretty often. so, I'd say, hurry up and call before your warranty runs out, good luck!

Rl on the control panel

The "rl" (remove load) error code appears when you are running the "Clean Washericon1.png" cycle. You must not have a load of clothes in the washer during this cycle. Remove the clothes from the drum, and restart the cycle. The "Sud" error indicates that the detergent is over-sudsing. The Duet washer automatically combats this by reducing the amount of suds in the washing machine. Let the washer finish the suds-reduction steps. Use less detergent during the next wash cycle.

Holds water wont compleatly drain shuts down before spine cycle


If the washer shuts down before spin cycle it indicates that it is unable to drain properly. Please check the drain hose/drain pump filter for any clogs/blockages and try cleaning them to solve this problem. Also after cleaning check if the pump is working fine.

Does not spin in most cycles

It sounds like your timer is defective.  If this is the case you will have to replace it.
