For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do i disassemble a kenmore elite washer to get to the water pump


In a typical Kenmore top loader, screws are removed from the boittom of the control panel, allowing the panel to be rotated up toward the rear of the unit. This reveals two spring latches. Some dispenser tubing may have to be disconnected prior to removing the cabinet. The two spring latches, when released, allow the cabinet to be slid forward to expose the inner assemblies. The pump is located in the lower front.

Where is the pump/filter located on my Kenmore Front Loader Washe


It is just behind the lower panel. Remove the 3 screws from the lower panel (the panel just below the door), the screws are on the lip on the bottom of the panel facing the front of the machine. Pull down and toward you to get the panel off. The filter and clean out are in the center. Unscrew the cap to remove and clean out, but have lots of towels ready, there will be water coming out.

Whether this is a TOP LOADER, or a FRONT LOADER, the drain pump is located directly below the wash tub in the front of the washer. Accessing either one takes, different procedures, however.

To access the pump on a TOP LOADER, you must remove the exterior washer casing. Follow the steps provided in this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

If this is a FRONT LOADER, you must remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. Follow the steps provided in this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

The Kenmore Oasis is a different configuration from the two I've mentioned. There are two pumps on the Oasis. One is a drain pump, while the other is a recirc pump. Both are accessible by removing the rear panel of the washer.

If you require further assistance, please post back with a complete model number so I can determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

LG wm -1832c front loader making noise


when you take the panels off you will see that the barrel is suspended by springs on top and fake struts on the bottom. be careful when removing the panels. if the barrel is leaning forward it's the front struts, if it's tilting upward it's the rear. and be careful how much you load in a front loader

Replacing spring wire on kenmore front loader HE 2


This is often a very tricky process. The easiest way I know how to get the inner spring back in place is to use two sets of hands and work through the door and through the bottom panel as well. Follow these steps:

1. Remove the lower panel under the door.
2. One person reach through the door opening and insert the spring in the bellow groove, starting at the top.
3. Work the spring around to the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and hold in place by keeping your fingers on the spring in the groove.
4. Have a second person, laying on their back, reach through the bottom panel and grab the lower half of the spring on each side with both hands.
5. While the first person holds the upper portion in place, the second person pulls straight down and works the remaining portion of the spring in place.

This is the best way, I have been able to accomplish this. Make sure you use a type of applaince adhesive to reseat the outer portion of the bellow to the door frame if this is the glue on type. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know.
