Q:

11049962600 Kenmore Elite Washer Water inside door

A:

Hello,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The door glass is one piece; it does not use a gasket. It is possible that the door glass is all you will need to replace. Here is a video that demonstrates replacing the door glass; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The washer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same.

If the washer still leaks after replacing the door glass, you will need to examine the door frame, door boot, and front panel. Here is a link that you may use to purchase or view parts for your Kenmore HE3 model number 110.49962600 washer .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Q:

What is a F20 code on my Kenmore HE3t washer

A:

As indicated in the link for a previous answer provided by Alina F. in the above response, the F20 indicates that the control board is not detecting water entering the machine. Check the water supply faucets to make sure that they are turned on. Shut off the water supply faucets and remove the water supply lines from the back of the washer. Place the ends of those fill lines in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply faucets to check for proper water pressure and flow from the fill lines.

Check the inlet water screens on the back of the washer for deposits or debris that could prevent water from entering the washer. If those screens are clogged, I recommend that you replace the inlet water valves. Cleaning those screens could result in debris getting into the solenoid water valves and causing them to stick in the open position. This would result in a flood of your laundry room. That is why I recommend replacing the valves instead of cleaning the screens. You can order the inlet water valve assembly from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that component is 8182862. Unplug the washer and remove the top panel to access that component for replacement.

If you find no problems with the above issues, you could have a problem with the control board, the wiring, the flow meter or the water level pressure switch. Reply with additional details if you need more help. Let us know whether the washer is filling before you get that F20 code. We will assist you further once we receive additional details.

This can sometimes be a difficult failure to diagnose and repair. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thanks for that additional information Mike. Does the washer fill with water before you get that F20 code? If it is filling, then you could have a bad water pressure switch or a bad flow sensor. The flow sensor is the suspect failure if the washer fills with water and it stops after about 1 minute. This would indicate that the flow sensor is not detecting the water entering the washer. In this situation, I recommend that you UNPLUG the washer and remove the top panel. Check the wiring connections on the flow sensor and the control board. That flow meter is shown as KEY 4 in the parts image that I provided below. I provided a wiring diagram in the second image so that you can see the control board connection for that flow meter. If you find no problems with the wiring connections, you may need to replace that flow switch. If the washer is not filling at all before you get that code, you could have bad inlet water valves or a failed control board. I hope that this additional information helps. Reply with additional details if you need more assistance.

The method for testing the flow meter is to UNPLUG the washer and remove that flow meter from the washer. You can use a volt/ohm meter with a tone if you have one. With the meter set to measure resistance with tone, touch or connect the meter leads to the terminals on the flow meter. Blow through the flow meter in the direction of flow (which is marked on the side of the flow meter). You should hear a tone that decreases down to a series of beeps as the speed of the sensor slows to zero. If your volt/ohm meter does not have a tone feature, you should see a fluctuation in the resistance reading as the meter slows to zero. If the resistance of the meter remains constant during this test then the flow meter is probably bad. This test is difficult to perform with some types of volt/ohm meters. If you suspect that the flow meter is bad, then it will need to be replaced. This is not a perfect test but it should help you avoid replacing the wrong component. One other detail that I did not mention earlier is to make sure that the hot water supply is connected to the washer and that it is working. If the washer is run with just cold water connected to it, the F20 will sometimes be displayed. Let me know if you need more help.

Q:

kenmore washer model # 11049962600 showing F20 after rinse cycle please help

A:

The link for a previous answer that James R. provided in the above response gives some technical troubleshooting and repair advice for the F20 code. It is unusual to see that code after the rinse cycle but not on the initial fill. You could have a problem with that cold water fill hose or fill valve. I recommend that you check that cold water faucet to make sure that it is fully open. Shut off that cold faucet and remove the fill hose from the back of the washer. Check the inlet water screen on the back of the washer for debris or deposits that could be restricting water flow. If you find a restriction, I recommend that you replace that inlet water valve assembly. It is risky to try and clean that inlet water screen. If debris gets past that screen, it could cause the inlet water valve to stick open and you could wind up with a flood of your laundry room.

If the screen is okay, I recommend that you place the end of that cold water supply hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to check the water pressure and flow. If you have a problem with the cold water supply, you will probably need to have a plumber fix this issue (unless replacing the fill hose fixes that problem). NOTE: If you are using a Flood-Safe fill hose as shown in the image below, this could be causing your F20 problem. I recommend that you switch to a conventional fill hose in that situation.

If you find no problems with the above issues, I recommend that you check the installation of your drain hose according to installation instruction guidelines. If the stand-pipe or sink height is too low, you could have a siphon problem.

If these tips don't help, you could have one of the problems discussed in that link for a previous answer provided in the above response. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

These tips may help you resolve this fill problem in your washer. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

This intermittent problem could be difficult to diagnose and repair on your own. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
