Kenmore washer, model# 110.20022011. Will the tub ring cause the washer to be off balance?


probably not
the machine becomes unbalanced for several reason
with not clothes
the machine is not level
the tub suspension has failed and the tub is not level ( possible your tub ring statement)
if filled with clothes
uneven materials --heavy trousers on one side and light fabrics on the other
have a washer mechanic check out the fault for a proper diagnosis.

Kenmore dishwasher not draining


There are several reasons why the washer won't drain...
Here are the most probable answers:
1. There is a "clutch" that enables the tub to spin but the clutch linings are worn out.
The repair is not too difficult.....I would say that the repair level is about "6" on a "1 to 10" scale.
2. There is also a possibility that there is a mount that has split into pieces.
For some reason (I think it was to save money, some Kenmores are actually MISSING one mounting bolt for the gear case / transmission assembly....I looked at mine and I figured that the reason that the mount was broken was because the mechanical assembly was missing the bolt which caused more vibration every time the machine went into a spin.
3. The water pump impeller may not be turning....
4. The drain hose is kinked or not positioned properly (above the level of the water in the machine)....

How to fix suds lock on Kenmore


The Sd code on most Kenmore Elite HE washers indicates a suds lock (usually caused by excessive suds do to overuse of detergent). Check for the presence of excessive suds in the washer. If you see a lot of foam, the code is likely caused by this problem. You will likely be able to drain the washer and spin out the clothes once the suds dissipate. Run an empty cycle with 1 cup of liquid chlorine bleach through the washer to help rinse out suds residue. If you see foam emerging during the empty cycle, you may need to repeat this process. You can also use Washer Magic or AFFRESH to help clean suds residue out of the washer. These products are available at your local Sears store or the grocery store. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate quantity. You may need as little as a tablespoon of detergent in a high efficiency washer due to the low water level. You may need even less for a while since the clothes will likely have detergent still dissolved in the fibers that will emerge during subsequent wash cycles.

There are many different models of Kenmore Elite HE washers. If you do not see any apparent problem with excessive suds or need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore Elite HE washer.

Kenmore elite oasis he has a rattle inside when starts to spin and when it slows down. sounds like loose change but i cant see how the money could get between the inner walls. unit is 2 years old.


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

Washer overflows after taking it apart


You may have missed something when putting it together. Take it apart again then check and properly install the following:
  1. Water inlet valve. It may not be able to shut completely when the electricity has been turned off. The valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. Water may accumulate substantially and overflow.
  2. Water level switch. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It 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 air pressure in the tube increases and activates the switch when the water reaches a certain level. When the switch is obstructed, it cannot tell the water to shut off and the machine overflows.Clear it from any obstruction.
