It is starting to squeak and was wondering what you suggest I do to fix it p


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

My dryer is locked and I have a tub full of wet clothes. Sorry, can't find the manual how to fix.


If it's your washer that is locked, the manual suggests you press the START/PAUSE/UNLOCK button. It says the lid will unlock once the washer movement stops and it might take several minutes if it was spinning at a high speed. You can resume the cycle by pushing the Start/pause/unlock button again.
I really hope this is the answer you need. There is nothing more frustrating than a load of wet laundry. If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks and good luck!

How do you replace the drive belt in a kenmore dryer model 88042


Pull the fron off. Remove tub, should have a spring loaded idler pulley next to the motor. Make sure that it is not broke and spins freely. Also check tub support rolers on each side. They shoule spin freely. If ok, put belt around tub, install tu. Put belt around spring loaded pulley. May need a hand holding tub while you install pulley. Put front on. Make sure the fron of cover fits inside the tub seal. Good luck. email me with issues, bobby.crochet@lyondellbasell,com.
