Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Kenmore dryer does not turn on, no power.

We bought a used kenmore front load washer and dryer, model #402.89032010. my brother inlaw was here to help unload. we discover we don't have an outlet to plug the dryer cord in but rather the wire was just direct. He said he could make that work so we let him try. Stupid idea!!!! He didn't hook up the wires correctly,, he turned the power button on, the dryer turned on but then shut off he turned it on again it made a loud noise and got really hot, bad smelling and died. We haven't been able to turn the dryer on since. How do we determine if we fried the motor or not? Is it worth replacing? Please help!!

was the machine working when you bought it? if there's 240 available, then a problem is in the machine NOT your wiring. both motors, the dryer and wash motor may be 240 volts OR 120 volts - a hot leg to ground. the feeder should be a four wire because the white is the neutral and the ground an equipment ground. at the panelbox both the equip gnd and white terminate at the neutral bus.

SOURCE: kenmore Front load washer model

I have a kenmore front load washer, model: 417 42042100
It makes loud noise and becomes louder during the spin cycle.
The drum is loose when I inspected through the front door.
My problem is how to open the cabinet and replace any broken parts.

Thanks.

I had the same problem and it went on few months. Then the final spin didn't work and I could smell something buring. Called AHS and they sent a tech, who said it was the bearing. Cost about $350. to fix. Will be replacing the washer soon, I don't think we paid too much more than this at the scratch and dent place.

Sounds like motor is bad. See if you can find the 2 main wire leads on the motor and hook up directly to see if you can get it to work.

Kenmore 417 44042400 Front Load machine Sears says does not exist


YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. THE COMPANY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS. HERE IS MY SOLUTION: GO TO LOWE'S HARDWARE AND BUY A WASHER AND DRYER THERE. BUY THE GE BRAND. 3 YEARS AGO, WHEN OUR MAYTAG WASHER DIED, WE BOUGHT A NEW GE WASHER BEFORE MY FATHER DIED IN 2006. BUT CHECK INTO THAT. MY E MAIL ADRESS IS CoolRod41@yahoo.com IF YOU FIND THIS IMFO HELPFUL. GOOD LUCK.

I need a manual for a Kenmore washer, model # 1102708604.


I have now got the manual for the Kenmore Elite washer and dryer coming in by mail. I had gone to the local Sears store and then to the service center close to home. The service center was able to find the manuals and order them for me.

Thanks for your help.

    Screeching Kenmore front loading dryer


    There is a hub and bearing that needs to be replaced you will need to have this serviced by a qualified tech. The whole front of the dryer has to come off and the basket needs to be removed.

    Kenmore elite front loading wash & dryer-5 yrs old: should i buy?


    all kenmore named washer will have 110 as first 3 digits of model #..the he washers are usually good washers..like all front loads they have their quirks ..if you read reviews from other consumers they indicate problems ..most of which are easily remedied by reading owners manuals..mold /mildew usually a bleach clean every few months ..vibration need real solid floor..oversuds use HE detergents only..just a matter of changing mind set from top loads with 25 gals of water each fill to a front load with 5-6 gals each fill..top load with 750-850 rpm spin speed to front load 1000-1200 rpm ..if willing to learn proper use and what to expect they can best investment..just don't let opinions of those unwilling to adapt affect your decision

    Front load dryer


    Read the instruction manual carefully. If you are certain it isn't working as it should then don't hesitate and tell the supplier it is faulty and to send a replacement or give a refund.
