Question about Kenmore 20172 Top Load Washer
I heve ths Kenmore Elite clothes washer that has worked fine for two years. Today it did not drain when the cycle was finished. It is showing the code CA and I do not have the book anymore. Does anyone know what this might mean? It is also leaking water on the floor. Thank you for any assistance you are able to provide.
$850 for a piece of junk, ours is broken after two years, the Sears maintenance guy said they were built incorrectly (something about the water pump and motor being in the same area?) and they do not make them anymore. Thanks Sears.

"CA" is an Average Current Limit alarm or error. It's an indication that the you may have a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the washer can cause this problem. Press Pause/Cancel to clear the alarm. If the problem persists, then I would suspect one of the causes that were mentioned. I hope this may help you.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
