SOURCE: cold water will not enter washing machine

Turn off the faucet in wall. Unscrew the inlet hose to examine whether there is clogging in the tiny screens. Both ends as well as machine input hose. Clear out properly. Open faucet to check. See that you have a "y" or "F" type adaptor for your hot and cold inputs of the machine. This is if you have only one faucet in wall for your washing machine. If this does not work you have to check your (plug off the wall first) wires to the inlet pump of your machine - this probably has come off or is loose. And if this does not work, your inlet valve could be defective.

Pl rate if helped.......

SOURCE: tub bangs and seems to be spinning out of round

One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.

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: kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container

Check your water pressure at the sourse. Strong water pressure will cause banging noises from relay valves open and close. Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Sounds like you are experiencing "water hammering". When the water valve shuts off quickly, the water which was flowing in the pipe must stop, and the momentum of the water suddenly stopping can cause the pipes to rattle or bang. Adding an air chamber would cusion that, and eliminate the banging. I have seen some (at a local Home Depot) which can screw onto the hose right where it connects to the hosehold shut off valve behind the washer.

Front load washer will not fill with cold water and will just stop at the rinse cycle and buzz


Check your inlet pipe on cold water supply, When you dissconnect look inside where pipe fits onto machine you will see a small filter, if it is blocked take it out with great care and clean. always replace it. if your water supply is ok and filter is clear then it will be a faulty water valve. Good luck and feel free to give feed back ok.

Washer bangs between wash cycle and first spin/rinse cyle


Sounds like you need a water hammer control in your Hot water line, usually it's teed into the line and is just a short length of pipe with a cap on it, acts like a shock absorber

Water not coming into my HE5 washer


Check that there is water coming from water supply, if not lines can be clogged or frozen.

If water is coming to the machine, but not entering into the drum, then it is a faulty inlet valve, or a faulty control, have parts tested and replaced.
