I had a similar problem ... mine was related to a hole in the pressure switch hose (code E22). Inside the washer, there is a pressure switch that senses how full the tub is. It does so using air pressure at the bottom of the tub -- air hose gets "pushed on" by the filling water and causes a pressure spike the switch. If you develop a leak in the air hose, the pressure switch never gets exhausted. There is a safety feature that engages if the water runs for more that 8 minutes without the pressure switch engaging. E22 is one of the codes related to this event. Easy way to see if this is an issue is to run a diagnostic test.

Check out this posting for how to do so: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part

Kenmore washer frontloader model 417.41122410 code E11


An E11 error indicates a problem with the incoming water. The error will occur if the tub doesn't fill normally in about 8 minutes. This could be related to closed shut-off valves, failing anti-flood hoses, or debris in filters in the hoses or at the inlet valve on the washer. It could also come from a fault with the sensor that detects the weight of the washer tub, a problem with the reed switch that tracks water flow into the washer, the air tube that goes to the reed switch or a failure of the inlet valve. It can even indicate that the end of the drain hose is below the water level in the washer and is siphoning water out as the tub fills.

If no water or a trickle of water is reaching the tub, first make sure that the shut-off valves are open. Next close the valves and disconnect the hoses. Place the hoses into a bucket and check the water flow by opening the shut-off valves. Shut off the valves. Clean the filters, including those in the inlet of the washer. Reconnect the hoses or replace them with new ones if there was low flow. (Check the flow at the shut-off valves themselves with a similar bucket under the valve opening, if you can.) If these steps don't work, you need to replace the inlet valve assembly. It failed in the closed position.

If water is filling the tub normally and flowing out the drain, check the drain hose position. If the tub is filling and is held in the tub, then the washer isn't correctly measuring the water flow. Check the reed switch and that tubing by blowing into the tube. Replace a faulty switch and remove any blockages from the tubing. Check the wiring harness to ensure that the message got to the control board.

See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/41741122310/0582/0153200.html for parts diagrams and price lists. You need the control panel diagram.

I hope this helps.

Tub Seal

If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. When the tub seal fails water gets into the tub bearings and usually causes the bearings to go bad also. It is a good idea to replace the tub bearings with the new tub seal.

Door Boot Seal

Tub to Pump Hose

If the washer is leaking water the hose from the tub to the pump might be split or torn. Don't try to cut off the bad piece of hose and stretch it to fit the pump, this will put strain on the remainder of the hose and may cause a sudden and complete failure of the hose which will dump potentially hundreds or thousands of gallons of water onto the floor because the next time the washer tries to fill all of the water will end up on the floor and so the washer will never shut off the valve. Any time there is a damaged hose, replace it completely with the OEM part.

Washing Machine Fill Hose

If the washer is leaking water, check the fill hoses on the back of the washer, this is the most common place for water to leak. If the washer still has the original black rubber fill hoses replace them with stainless steel or some other, more durable hose.

Drain Hose

If the washer is leaking water check the drain hose. The most common places for the hose to spring a leak is from the connection to the pump out to the back of the washer. Another common occurrence is when the washer gets pushed too far back against the wall.

Water runs but doesn't fill tub and wont spin if put on spin cycl


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Whirlpool washer - tub drains while it fills.


Your drain is to low. Make sure that the drain that your discharge hose is going into is at least as high as the washer. If not the water will drain out as fast as you can fill it.

When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.


The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

Water comming from under washer front side


 Check the following:
Are the fill hoses tight?
Are the fill hose washers properly seated?
Is the drain hose clamp properly installed?

 Is the sink or drain clogged? Sink and standpipe must be able to handle 17 gal. (64 L) of water per minute.
 Is water deflecting off the tub ring or the load? Center the tub before starting the washer. The wash load should be balanced and not overloaded. The fill or spray rinses can deflect off the load. The washer must be level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts tightened. Reset the
rear leveling legs (if needed).

Water keeps going and going and going!


the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
