Question about Kenmore 27182

1 Answer

Won't start We have a 4 month old Kenmore HE Front loader model #27182. My husband started a load of clothes, but didn't realize that the door wasn't completely closed (door catches and seems closed when it is not, but that is not the problem). He pressed the start button and the washing machine started washing the load of clothes with the door not locked shut. Water started coming out of the front ajar door. He tried closing the door, but the locking mechanism blocked the door from being closed after the load had started. There is only a start button and no other way of stopping the load once started, so my husband pulled the plug to stop water from pouring all over the floor. After plugging washer back in, it won't start. We thought we may have tripped a breaker, but the outlet is working fine. We suspect that we tripped a breaker or blew a fuse in the washer, but washer does not come with a manual, and we cannot find a manual online. Does anyone have any tips for us? Thank you.

    Also the light does not turn on, so we suspect something electrical.

Tip

We purchased our Kenmore front loader when they first came out. Shortly after,...


This advice is for preventing or getting rid off that awful mildew smell associated with front loader style washing machines.

The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a “Clean Cycle” available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.

Light flashing won start


Common error with front loaders is the door interlock. Make sure the door is positively closed. A gentle open hand push at the erea of the door lock often gets a machine started.

Kenmore front loader washing machine won't start


You will need to replace the door lock. Here is the part to order.
To replace the lock, remove the band securing the boot to the front panel and fold back the door boot. Now you can access and replace the lock. Let me know if you should need further help.

My Kenmore washer Model 44152 leaks from under the front door. It appears to be due to the clothes pushing against the plastic door (front loader). The extremely flimsy door bends very easily. The area...

Drum came loose on Fridgedaire front loader on final spin cycle.


What was the point of posting this on the site?

The drum has broken loose from the support plate at the rear

You need a new drum and a support plate plus probably an outer shell.

A complaint to the manufacturer may get you a deal on a replacement
