Question about Kenmore 4.5 cu. ft. Oasis Canyon Top Load Washer

Open Question

Plainest consumer model that will handle comforter?

I already have had experience with Kenmore products, and it depends on which store - it's not consistent. I have absolutely NO problem with having a washer/dryer without the bells and whistles -- unfortunately I haven't found a basic (basic front OR top loader?) pair that will handle the king size comforter -- I was hoping someone would be able to point me in the right direction for that? Is the new breed of canyon top loaders a good choice over front loaders for comforters and quilts, and which models that can handle a comforter offer the old fashioned contacts and switches over the logic boards that seem to 'go out' too much? The advice for Sears is okay...it's just that Sears is inconsistent. My father has had multiple problems with Sears repairs regarding both a refrigerator and a television set over the past few years, prompting him to write a letter to the CEO (he hoped it would get to him anyway) with several copies up the line. They eventually did do something, but it wasn't satisfactory and my father tends to avoid Sears for this inconsistency with service. From some of the replies, it's over 2 weeks to repair this model for some, and others get an immediate replacement. Where could I go to get reviews on Sears service "in my area?" If I call the service center, of course they will say their own service is good.

SOURCE: BEFORE I BUY --

SEARS SELLS AND REPAIRS KENMORE PRODUCTS. THEY ARE REASONABLY PRICED AND HAVE GOOD WARRANTIES. THE BEST PART IS THEY HAVE THERE OWN SERVICE AND MAITENCE DIVISION IN ALL MAJOR CITIES. BUY A WASHER AND DRIER WITH JUST THE BASIC CONTROLS ... ALL THE NIFTY STUFF IS JUST THAT ... NIFTY STUFF THAT IS USELESS. YOU DONT NEED 20 ERROR CODES TO TELL YOU WHAT IS GOING WRONG WHEN HALF THE TIME ITS THE LOGICBOARD THAT IS DEFECTIVE. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT BUYING ANY WASHERS AND DRYERS WITH "FUZZY LOGIC" OR MODELS THAT HAVE ALL THE LATEST "BELLS AND WHISTLES". ALL REPLACEMENT PARTS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE AND ARE JUST SOMETHING ELSE TO GO BAD. I HAVE BEEN IN THE HVAC&R BUISNEES AND HAVE REPAIRED ALL MAJOR APPLIANCES FOR OVER 40 YEARS ... WITH ALL THE NEW GAGETS ... I AM GLAD I AM RETIRED.

SOURCE: Kenmore front loader not draining.

Hi, UNPLUG the washer and shut off the water. Remove the lower front panel and you can access the water pump. You will need a wet/dry vaccuum to **** up the water as you open the sump cap on the pump. Spmetimes you can lower the drain hose into a bucket and get water out. Once the water is removed, open the cap and see if the filter is plugged as well as the pump inlet/outlet ports. This is common. If there are no obstructions, check voltage to the pump. it should get 120V.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Have a intermittent leak in the soap dispensing

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Just purchased the home and the handle on the moen 4551 cp is loose. The handle actually falls off the fixture. There is a plastic grommet or washer that is broken. How do I replace this plastic grommet...


You can find the parts diagram here: http://www.moen.com/monticello/chrome-two-handle-low-arc-bathroom-faucet/_/R-CONSUMER%3A4551 . The washer kit is part number 97274. The lever and the hub and elbow that the handle connects to depend on the finish and whether you need the hot or cold side replaced. Levers: 97557 Chrome 97558 Pol. Brass, hub and elbow: Cold 100552 Chrome, 100552P Pol. Brass; Hot 100553 Chrome, 100553P Pol. Brass.

You may be able to find the washer at a local hardware store (like Ace or Tru-Value). Alternatively, call Moen or visit the Moen site. 1-800-BUY-MOEN or http://www.moen.com/replacement-parts/product?product=IMGLIB:CA84437BN to order replacement parts.

You'll have to pay for the washer kit. However, if the hub and elbow or the lever are damaged, call Moen and see if they will replace it under warranty.

I hope this helps.

The handle has broken off my dryer (Kenmore Supercapacity 3.5 Quiet Tumble Action Wash-Easy-Acces ) and door must be pushed in very hard in order for it to work properly. Where can I get replacement...


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Here is another link that gives you options for the different model numbers.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/43142?searchedModel=43142&postFilter=true&modelFilter=true&productCategoryId=0153200&brandId=&brandFilter=false&categoryFilter=true

The 43142 number is a Stock Number, not a model number and could relate to any number of Sears products.

By looking at the parts site with the full model number you should be able to find the handle, Sears price and "Manufacturer substitute numbers".

The 417 prefix for these washers means that they are manufactured by Kelvinator (Frigidaire) so you may be able to get parts from an appliance parts store stocking their products.

Reposting: I have a lakewood oil filled radiator heater that will NOT turn on. Is there someplace or something I can do to have it fixed?


Depending on its age, you can return it to the place of purchase. Because the cost of repair will almost certainly exceed the cost of replacement, it is not a practical option. If you have a friend who is comfortable with electrical systems, you could try that. There are a few brands of oil filled heater that have recalls. The consumer safety bureau or the manufacturer may have information about a recall on your product. This is a good time of year to purchase a new one as many stores are just starting sales on heating appliances. Farmerbear at FixYa

I can't find them at any local stores


Hi there,

Look at it from our point of view, with potentially thousands of products, thousands of stores and not knowing your location, we need a little more from you.

If you are serious about getting an answer, include Make, Model of the product you can't find, what what type of product you seek and your general Geographic location.

Describe your problem clearly, concisely and with as much detail as possible.

For future reference:
Often, a problem can be the result of a seemingly unrelated event. It is always a good idea to include a recent history.

Additional information such as what steps have already been taken, has the product ever worked, is it new, etc. can have a bearing on providing the best solution for your particular circumstances.

Remember, you are a key participant in this process. We are not there, you are. We depend on you to be our eyes and ears. We can only respond to what you provide us.

What you get out of the experience depends on what you put in to it. So help us help you.

It would be also be advantageous in your case to repost your problem so that it starts over at the top of the queue in the correct category.



Best regards

Need plastic handle on Rival Crockpot lid.


I am Jo Anne Gomez who posted original problem and thought the problem was resolved with husband putting on a knob he found at the hardware store. Just wanted to let you all know that the handle we thought would solve the problem DID NOT....after he replaced the knob and we did another roast in it the lid totally shattered after we'd cooked another roast (luckily the glass did not get into the food), however, this is just a BAD PROBLEM and these lids should ALL be recalled. I have seen, just recently, the exact same crock pot and lid being sold for much less. I think that these crock pots should not even be sold but taken off the market to prevent lawsuits or horrible problems. Just wanted to let you know our solution did not work and Rival was not helpful at all.
