Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Found the problem with the mildew smell, service man(not sears) came after my washer completely broke, took the front panel underneath the door off, there is a drain outlet with a cap that twists off. It was completely clogged up with a writing pen,money nails, and lots of caked on dirt and mildew. There is nothing in the manual about cleaning this out, and sears servicemen, who were at my house 3 times never took this panel off, sold me a box of soap and said that would take care of the smell. Now since the drain there was completely clogged, the washer couldnt drain the water which sent it into a crazy spin which I couldnt stop, now the tub flies all over the place and tore up the plastic piece in front of the washer. It would cost at least 200.00 to buy parts could be as much as 500 to fix it and then an additional 200 for repairman to fix it. I called sears, they refuse to do anything about it. I feel if they had cleaned out that drain, I would have known to do that on a regular basis and my machine would still be working, so if you have a repairman come out make them clean it. That is where the smell came from. Beware of Sears and Kenmore front loading washer.
