Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The plastic thing that goes on end of drain hose where it enters on the back of the washer broke off. have new part.Also have clamps. Do you have to remove back of washer to put it back on. Seems there is a lip on the end of it that should fit under something to keep it from coming out. Hope you can understand my wording. Thank you Laura
It appears your hose clamp has failed in this instance.
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.
