Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Kenmore Super Capacity front loading washer that has stopped mid cycle and will start. When I select the power button, it hums loudly and does nothing. It was working perfect untill lastnight with no problems ever. I do think I heard a sort of scratching sound prior to it calling it quits. It has some staning water in it that will not drain and simply will not do anything other then hum. I searched and found that this might need a new motor coupling. Does this sound correct?

It might need a new water pipe the old one could of been damage. and some washers dont let the washing machine work if the water pipe is damaged or broke. you might just need some knew 15 mill to 30 mill pipes depending on how big your water pipe is. if u get a plumber he would cut about 5 cm of the old pipe off were it is damaged and solder on a part of the new pipe to see if it works, if not he would take off the whole pipe and put another in if that doesnt even work he would recommend a new washing machine. if you were to get a plumber i would get a local one and self employed because if you live close to them they wont charge very much and they can get you a reasonable discount off a new washer and get you usually a 3 to 5 year guarantee on it.

I have kenmore 80 series heavy duty/ super capacity plus washer that after it fills with water,hot or cold and it starts the wash cycle, I noticed that the agitator only moves once in awhile and stops


hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.

The low humming sound is from the pump. Remove the 3 screws on the bottom panel and remove it to check the pump filter. Here is a video for the "Duet Sport" washer. This washer is about the same. This video will show you the process and in this video the problem was similar to yours.

Stops at spin cycle


Open the lid to the washer and let it down gently. You should hear a click when the lid closes. If you don't hear it, the lid switch might be faulty and this will prevent the washer from going into spin. Not an expensive repair.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.
