Question about Kenmore 94802 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Snaged clothes I've been getting snagged clothes. Not sure if it's the washer of dryer. I have run my hand throughout and see nothing sharp. My knit running tops are having multiple pulls. I notice my white towels have snags, although hard to see, and also one of my hanky's has a few pulls. Help!

Re: Snaged clothes

Check the lint trap on the dryer. We had the same problem and it was because we put the lent trap in backwards.

How do i fix the dryer

Hey friend, thank you for your post!

To determine why your clothes may be getting caught in your dryer, place your hand in an old pair of pantyhose or a nylon stocking (one you don't care about ripping) and slowly run your hand along the drum and agitator. Does it catch anything?

Even though you may have felt with your hands, you might have missed something that is causing the rips. The insides of these holes may rust, and material catches it even though you don't feel it with your hands. If you discover a snag, you can simply take household sandpaper and sand the area(s) down yourself to help fix this problem.

The only other option may possibly be to replace large internal components of the tub, which at this point, please reach out to a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

My towels are coming out of the wash frayed and coarse. My lighter cottons are all stretched out. What is causes this to happen and how do I repair it.


If your washer has developed a bad habit of snagging and/or tearing your clothes; before scrapping your washer, try these few tips:

1) Check, by hand, the smoothness of your washer. Look for any broken fins or roughness on the basket surface. Replace, if necessary.

2) Reduce the size of your loads. Heavy, cramped loads can cause a lot of friction which leads to tears.

3) Reduce the amount of bleach used. Bleach can eat holes in clothing.

4) Verify water level is not too low, especially during rinse cycle, where snags are more apt to occur.

5) Consider placing delicates in a garment wash bag

6) Front load washers have no center agitator, so they are less likely to tear clothes.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.
