Question about Washing Machines

The drum on my kenmore elite 45862 frontloader seems to have seperated from the outside ring. can it be fixed or do i need a new washer

Washer started to bang intermittently on spin cycle at end of wash. checked for problem and found long strips of "plastic" in the catchall that seems to have been holding the drum in place.

The spider trunnion has broken apart that connects the inner basket to the rear shaft where power connects from the drive motor to turn the drum,most brands you must replace the inner basket and spider trunnion as a unit, as they are not sold separately it will cost you about $350.00 plus oversize shipping

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 Frontload Washer will Not go into spin cycle

Could be that you have something in the pump. Remove the bottom panel by removing 3 screws and you will see a round cap facing you in the center of the washer at the bottom. there will be alot of excess water behind this cap so get ready with plenty of towels. Unscrew the cap as you would the gas cap on your car and all the water in the lines and in the machine will come out here. Inside here you may find a number of things. Some of the things I have pulled from them are ...coins, socks, pencils, underwear, underwires to bras. The list goes on and on. Or you may not be using "he" detergent. Use only "he" powder detergent. Use vegetable oil to remove excessive sudds build up then use 2 cups of vinegar to clean the machine on whitest whites seting.

Your rear bearing is bad. Check warranty to see if rear tub is still covered.

It could be the lid switch or the timer.

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Elite washer spins to slow cauisng the

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

It sounds like the drum has broken from the rear mount. This will chew up the outer shell. This is a very labor extensive job. The parts are expensive also. You will probably need a new outer shell and inner drum.

Kenmore elite washer troubleshooting


Sounds like your bearings are worn and need replacing... a horrible job. The frayed plastic may mean a new drum. To replace the bearings you must remove and separate the drum which requires removing the top, front, and back panels. Lots of clips, screws, hoses, wires.... I'd take it on if this were my unit; but for a client, I'd say get a new one. This is not uncommon for these units. Sorry.

Washer will not spin... belt ok Kenmore Elite HE3 45862


Use a multimeter to check if the motor is OK. If there is an open winding or if there is a leak to the body then the motor is faulty.If not check the capacitor and replace. Now test with the program. see if voltage comes in after the wash cycle starts. If not the controller is faulty and needs a replacement.
Since you mentioned only the spin part I assume the controller is OK and the rest of function like water loading etc., is working.
Hope you work on the advice.
