I have a Kenmore washer with suds saver. I do not want it to drain into the laundry tub but it does each time. How do I stop it doing this. I have the washer hooked to the outgoing septic line and in the beginning it drained away not into the laundry tub. I do not have the original manual.

Wms2400lebwh ge laundry saver combo will not drain


no
the water will just run out if the hose is placed on the floor
mostly the problem is from items stuck in the pump impeller preventing the pump from spinning, blockage in the drain under the tub or motor not getting power
with the laundre saver ( suds saver) the pump rotation is reversed to draw water back from the washing tub so a reverse circuit is employed in the program board
it it is not sucking back and there is water in the laundry tub where the water was saved to, then call a technician to investigate the problem

Why is my Kenmore Elite HE 2 flashing F 02?


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.

Kenmore elite hE3 washer has f32 code flashing. Door is locked and would not open.


F/32 error code; this indicates a pressure switch failure. The Sud error code indicates a suds lock condition. Be sure that you are using HE laundry detergent & the drain hose is not too low.

My washer has water in the bottom of it. I pressed drain and spin it did then it filled back up with water.


If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Sud-saver feature


Leave the button on the control panel set to DRAIN

Just to play it safe, you can cut one of the wires to the diverter selenoid valve (I think they were yellow, if I rember correctly) to make sure you don't accidentally pump water onto your floor or something.

Water sighpons back into washing machine


Possible your filter is clogged, clean out. Your exit hose should not go too deep into the standpipe in wall, and it should not be air tight there. The height of approx 3 feet should be maintained. You can check the exit hose by laying it to floor level to see water flow out freely, or put into sink & try 'spin'.

If things work out, rate.

Tub drain dropped off


ignore the ball - it is supposed to be a suds saver but is a source of trouble on draining.
large diameter hose just fits onto the rim of the large hole in the bottom of the tub and is held in place with a clamp

Why does my washing machine have 2 drain outlets?


This is a water saver or previously known as a suds saver model. The bottom one is the drain. The top one would go to a suds tub. If you set the machine on save, the wash water is pumped out of the top hose into the holding sink next to the washer. The rinse water goes out the bottom hose to the drain. The next cycle you could set the washer to the very beginning of the main wash cycle and the washer would pump the water from the tub back into the washer to be used as wash water for the second load of laundry. Yea, used water. But the first load would be lightly soiled stuff, and the next load would be old barn clothes or play clothes. It was designed to save water (about 65 gallons used for 2 loads vs. 90 gallons) and soap. (now, front load machines with larger tubs would use as little as 25 gallons for two loads.) Just hook up the bottom hose to the drain. Leave the save / drain switch set to drain and you'll be fine. To be extra safe (in case the switch was accidentally set to save) disconnect the wires at the solenoid where the drain hose splits into two at the back bottom of the washer. (right where the hoses exit the machine.)
