If this is a top loading machine; remove the trim strips on the left and right ends of the dash. Then you'll see a screw at the bottom of each corner(left and right). remove (AND KEEP) the screws. Now the dash will lift and fold back.

Either the cylenoid to let the water in is bad.
Or the hose from the dispenser to the drum is clogged.
Most common with powder detergents.
Some really hot water poured into the dispenser may
solve the problem.

Check to see if the water is hot when it's pumped out, if it's not then your heater element may need replaced, if it is then the temp sensor may be the fault. :)

Water should just reach bottom of wm door .

Have you pulled the drain filter out? It is located beneath the door behind the lower panel. Remove the lower panel to access it. Once you see it put a bucket on the floor to catch the water if any comes out. The filter just unscrews. We want to make certain there is nothing trapped in there preventing the water from draining.

THERMAL FUSE? OR BAD CONTROL BORAD?

Kenmore Elite... | Answered on Jul 26, 2014 | 100 views


The 1st thing to try is to take out the dispenser ,there is a little piece that you will push down and then pull the entire assembly out, rinse it out with hot water ,most likely there is a build up in the dispenser,there after use only powder detergent, and no more then 1 tbs ,and any other stuff IE bleach ,fabric softener,use 1/2 the amount and dilute it with water.

The F02 error code on a Kenmore HE3 washer indicates that the control detects a long drain time. This can be caused by excessive suds in the tub, a restriction or clog in the drain system or by a number of other component failures. If the washer did not drain, check for excessive suds in the tub. After the suds dissipate, you can normally run a rinse/drain and spin cycle. Causes for excessive suds include not using HE (High Efficiency) detergent or using too much detergent (even if it is HE type). If the washer will not drain and you do not detect excessive suds, you could have a clog in the drain system. Check the drain hose and the washer drain. You may need to manually unlock the washer door and then pull the large item filter on the pump to check for a clog. To manually unlock the washer door, unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the top of the image below. Carefully reach up along the inside of the front panel and pull down on the tab that is under the door lock mechanism until it clicks. This will unlock the washer door. Open the door and manually drain the water out of the washer with a wet/dry shop vacuum. Once the washer is drained, arrange some towels to catch residual water that will drain out and remove the large item filter. Check for a clog or restriction that could be preventing the washer from draining properly. If you find no clog or restriction in the drain system, you may have a bad drain pump that needs to be replaced. A problem with the electronic control board could also prevent the washer from draining. If the washer is draining properly but you are getting this code, you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch or the control board.

This could probably help you................... till you get a new door mechanism to replace your door lock/switch. Which is available on the net, quoting your make and model. And which you can easily fix yourself.

That is a very good question. These units partially open and close
the inlet valves for certain temp settings. And if it's out of it programed tolerance the machine stops and throws up a trouble code. I'm sticking to the older machines.

Kenmore Elite... | Answered on Jun 27, 2014 | 24 views


sounds like a bad bearing on the rear of the tub. If you remove the rear access panel you will see a large pulley and belt. That attaches to the inner drum (basket) and spins it. It floats on a bearing just behind the pulley. If the bearing is bad then you will be able to move it up and down about .25 to.50 of an inch.
