Kenmore HE3 Washer

4 posts in this topic

Have a Kenmore HE 3, model 110.42832 that doesn't add enough water.

Had the Sears technicians come out and changed the pressure sensor on the unit but that didn't correct problem... have been told that this is a common problem when you put the washer on the optional pedistal, which I have.

The pedistal has nothing to do with it...

 

When I worked for Sears I was the 'Train the Trainer' and the HE3 washers is what I had to train thier tecs to work on... Trust me, the pedistal has nothing to do with it....

 

Water inlet valve, water sensor or bad connection at board...

 

Are there any error messages?

A much more common problem is the water fill valve. Replacing this valve has fixed many odd and recurring problems.

Also, use only HE type detergent. Yes, I said ONLY. Pay no attention to the salesman or the manual. The factory is telling the service providers to tell the customer HE detergent only. Although the weasels in the stores, and those writing the manuals, say you can use regular soap at 1/2 the amount.
