Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
I have a 3 year old Kenmore Elite HE3, model #42822 201. A little while ago it developed a ticking noise when the drum turned. I could not track it down then, but it is getting worse. When I took the belt off it seemed to to away, I also noticed a lot of play in the rear pulley at the back of the drum. How much is OK? Is that pulley supposed to have play or is it supposed to be tight? Thanks in advance. Scott
Scott, the pulley should be tight, no play, Check to see if one of spokes are cracked on the pulley. I do believe that you have a 5 year warranty on the bearings on this machine, parts only. It's a huge job to replace the bearings on this model. Give Sears a call to see if they will cover the parts. You will need the rear tub and bearing kit...Good luck
