SOURCE: laundry smells like mildew after washing

Front load washers retain water that you cant see or get to. There are cleaners for washing machines available. I clean mine every month with alot of bleach , try pouring a half gallon of bleach in the soap insert on a normal wash cycle and an extra rinse would not hurt no clothes of course.

SOURCE: kenmore washer 3.5 super capacity. Machine spins

It sounds like your tub bearing is bad or going bad. It could be the adjustment on your spin cycle. Does your unit allow you to adjust this. Also are you overloading. Can you send me the brand and model of your unit and I help you more.

SOURCE: washing machine suddenly stopped working during cycle

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Just picked-up a front load washer, & the whole drum won't turn when washer is turned on.the belt is in very good condition.the washer has been sitting in storage for 3yrs. what can i do to ma


My advice would be to to check out the website below.

http://applianceguru.com/category1/

this website will be invaluable to you if you want to repair your machine yourself. Calling an appliance repair service will be very expensive often resulting in buying a new unit do to the repair cost and labor charges if your appliance is fairly old. But at this site simply punch in your model number (they will even tell you how to find that) and a diagram will come up with all the parts for your machine.

The site will also help you troubleshoot your machine to determiine what parts you will need. You will then find videos to help you do the repairs. And the best thing of all is , if you order the part they are delivered FAST and if it turns out not to be the problem you can return the part for reimbursement. If you have ever had an appliance repair done and they installed a part that wasnt the problem you were stuckl paying for it and the next part they wuld think the problem was!.

Still having a problem then hit their forum and post a message explaining your symptoms and model ect and you will quickly have someone giving you advice on how to repair ect. Or simply type in your symptoms and search the forum and I will almost bet someone has already posted the same problem with your brand and and an answer will immediately be found.

Good Luck and don't let appliances intimidate you they are VERY simply machines once you realize how they work and how simple they are constructed.

Kenmore front loader washer powers on but lets no water in


If the door lock is engaging, then there could be a few things causing the problem. These things are as follows:
1) The water valve is bad - you can check this by seeing if when you turn the machine on if power, 115vac is being applied to it. If so the valve is bad, if not read forward.
2) There is a part called the pressure switch, it controls the amount of water that flows into the machine. Its connected to the drum by a 1/4" tubing. You'll need to check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the tube.
3) Take the bottom of the machine off, called the kick plate. Inside there is a tech sheet with diagnostic walk through's that will carry you the rest of the way

WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990


On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.
