Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Why is my kenmore washer shredding sheets?

My washer is shredding my bedsheets. I even loaded the washer with only the top and bottom fitted sheet, so there would be plenty of room for the sheets to wash. I took the sheets out, they were spiraled like as if wrung, and there was a big spot totally shredded! This is the 3rd set of sheets this has happened to. I need to know if there is something that can be done. Is it the agitator? I called sears to see if there was a recall and they didn't have one. I am sick of this washer tearing up my sheets. I have noticed ripped spots on some of our large towels. HELP!

Check the drum for any Sharpe edges or splits also check the activator for the same . Something in side may have a rough edge to cause this .

SOURCE: Final Spin Drum BANGS around--terribly frightening noise!

Check the spring that hold the drum in place. They are about 4-5 inches long on the top of the drum at about 2 and 10 o'clock. The springs suspend the drum and if broken the drum will bang around. About $40 to order springs online

Also check on the bottom at about 4 and and 7 o'clock because there are 2 shock absorbers that help keep the drum from just bouncing and bouncing with no end in sight. Again about $40 to change each one.

I am in the process of the first repair and doesn't seem too difficult. The second was done about 6 months ago and was not too difficult but was awkward because you had to lay on the floor to get the replacement pins in place.

Looking for a manuel for a kenmore elite oasis he,stopped washing

If you are looking for a REPAIR manual, each one of these washers come with a technical data sheet located inside the front panel of the appliance. The tech sheet includes all diagnostics procedures, error code definitions, troubleshooting flow charts and wiring diagrams. To access it, you can pop the top panel open by locating the two retaining clips in the seam along the front of the washer where the washer top and front panel meet. About 2 inches in from each side slide a putty knife into the seam and push in to release each clip. Hold the lid shut as you lift the top. The tech sheet is located on the inside of the front of the washer between the wash tub and casing. can have someone lift the washer and tilt it back and you can try reaching up from the bottom between the wash tub and front casing.

If you need an OWNER'S manual, you can go to and type in the your model number under the "Manuals" link. They have an extensive list of manuals in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

I hope this helps you.

Washer manual

If you are looking for an Owner's Manual, go to and type in your model number in the following format: "110.28032700" under the "Manuals" link. Your owner's manual is available in a .pdf (adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you need technical data sheet to troubleshoot a problem, the washer comes with a tech sheet inside the cabinet. It is located between the wash tub and cabinet in the front of the washer. The tech sheet includes all diagnostics procedures, fault codes and technical data to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter.

You can access it by lifting the washer top, or by reaching up from the bottom of the washer. If you choose to open the washer top, you need to locate the two retaining clips along the front of the washer in the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer. Push in on the retaining clips and the top panel will pop free and can be lifted up. Make sure you hold the lid closed while lifting, so that it does not fly open when lifting the top. I recommend taping it closed.

If the tech sheet is missing, you can order a new one. The part number is W10026628.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Sheets Or Comforters? This Normally Occurs With An Overload Such As Pillows And Comforters Due To The Large Circumference. Which Simply Means That Anything That Has A Large Area Will Make The Water Come Over The Top Because When The Machine Is Running The Spin Cycle The Large Area Of Fabric Covers The Side Of The Machine. Actually Causing Water To Spin Off The Top Of The Fabric And Over The Sides Of The Washing Machine Bucket Thus Ending Up On The Floor Below.
