Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Weird smell I have a Kenmore 44102 washer. It's recently started smelling of cigarette smoke. And we don't smoke! That's the best way I can describe it. At first it was only when opening the door. Now it seems to be all the time when running. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Probably mildew. They often suggest running a bleach only (no clothes) cycle every month or so with front-loading washers.

E-cig -So how exactly does This Function?


An E-cigarette is a battery-powered device that converts liquid nicotine into a mist, or vapour, that the user inhales. There's no fire, no ash, and no smoky smell. E-cigarettes do not contain all of the harmful chemicals associated with smoking tobacco cigarettes, such as carbon monoxide and tar. I would rather choose to say that the e-cigarette is a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes, which cause millions of deaths every year. For me, the e-cigs have also helped to reduce my "smoker's cough," sharpened my senses of taste and smell, and even improved my sleep. My regular brand is the Phix and they have provided me with a lot of benefits as well.

How to get rid of cigarette smell in car vents


Use air fresheners to eliminate smoke smell. After cleaning out the car, raid your pantry for odor eliminators. Dryer sheets placed under seats will help freshen the air. Also consider putting an open box of baking soda or a bowl of kitty litter in the car to absorb cigarette smell

It is not putting a good smell in my home, It smells like cigarette smoke. I have a classic air purifier, and a newer model with ultraviolet light. They both do not put a good smell, in fact the one in...


Hello, To smell like cigarettes, you would have to be smoking ? I would recommend calling the manufacturer and describing this problem to them. Somethings going on, and I would start there. I hope they can be of help to you.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7

Weird smell from refrigerator


Is the smell from inside the refrigerator or on the outside? If outside, it is possible a humid smell from the condensate drainpan water evaporating. You could put a very small amount (a couple of granules) of pool chlorine in the drainpan.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)

Kenmore washer smells/mildew on rubber


The smell problem is actually because of the softener....its nassssty stuff it coats the interior of the washer and forms a grease like residue. I would use Washer Magic (available at all appliance parts retailers) (only half the container in front loaders) and a hot wash. Also keep spraying the boot with bleach and water soluiton every few hours it will dissappear after awhile. please rate my help

Kenmore 44102 has stopped sudsing


Nancy this is a hard one. The first thing I would do is check how hard your water is. The harder the incoming water, the less suds. I believe your model starts with a 417. front loader and I assume that the detergent is being dissolved in the disp. tray. On this model, most of the water will be under the basket while agitating. Now, your drain from the tub has a filter and if it full of lint and debris, it could be restricting the drain, leaving dirty water in the tub. You would have to remove the lower panel and check the tub filter. This is located in the tubing coming down from the tub going to the trap and pump. I will attach a photo for you. You can also run the washer empty with hot water. Add 2 cups of bleach. After it starts agitating, stop it and let it sit for 2 hours. Then resume the wash and let it finish. See if the dirty smell goes away. Catriver..post back
