Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I cannot open the front cover for the Kenmore Elite front loader 110.42926200 to check my pump. Can anyone help ?
Sure thing, under the door is a kick panel, held on by three hex screws,standard uses 1/4 inch and torx uses a 9/32 socket. A slight down tug will loosen the panel and behind that you will see the pump at right front. Just to the left is a round soda can shaped housing with a large turn screw lid attached to the pump. Grab a bucket and some towels, unscrew the lid like a jar of peanut butter slowly to let the water into the bucket. This may require two trips and some getting wert. The trap is attached and easy to clean. Next reach behind a gently shake the black boot joining the tub to the pump for coins and lint. The last item is getting a bright light and inspecting the pump through the small hole right side that can be seen once the trap is removed. Check for debris then put a finger in the hole and check the impeller for disconnection from debris/
