  • I heard GVI "good vibration" pads work but I hve not tried them yet. Make sure it is on a solid floor which is the best case. Check out Front load toad,com too

Kenmore Elite HE3 Front Loading Automatic Washer


Pull the plug and test the plug with a nitelight or lamp. Now try the washer. If the lamp lit and the washer. It appears there are many problems with the controlls of these machines. There is a leamon law for appliences. Sorry I think this is a Vista model made by microsoft and the best bet is to force the mfg. to return your hard earned money because it is defective.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

Front Load Washer and dryer


Yes I  find them all the time on the 2nd floor so you should be ok. Proper loading makes these machines very smooth. Sort out towels together, casuals together, socks and whites together.
