Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer
We have a kenmore extra capacity front loader that is about 7 years old but works good. Recently, we have had large amounts of our clothing ruined. We are noticing black spots/streaks on the clothing after wash that is virtually impossible to remove. Can't seem to figure it out. Husband cleaned out the fabric sofener box and cleaned around the rubber seal against the door. Still no solution. HELP!!!! Kim
I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
