Suggestion: Plug off the wall first. Check to see if all the connections are firmly pushed in; during the job some could hv come loose. Check the wall outlet, your washer plug....whatever. Then plug in.

My clothings get grease like stains sfter I wash them with Kenmore washer.

Don't know if this is a front or top loader since you did not supply the model number. But if the stains are grease, it could only mean that the bearing seal has been compromised. Water is getting into the bearings and the bearing grease is what is on your clothes. You need to have the bearing and the seal replaced on your machine.

It is not to bad on a top loader in terms of cost to repair. But, if you have a front loader, that is a different story, since the entire machine needs to be torn apart to get to the bearings and the replacement parts and labor can be as much as a new washer. In either case, get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Hope this helps you.

My kenmore front loading washer is screeching during spin cycle and seems to be spinning poorly at times. what is going on?

The wash drum should spin smoothly by hand without much noise. It is supported with two sets of ball bearings. If the water seal fails, water starts to leak into the inner bearing and they start to rust causing a loud noise especially during the spin cycle. The only way to fix it is to replace the bearings and seal. It a big and expensive job to replace the bearings since you literally need to take your washer apart to get to the bearings. Sorry.

How old is this washer? he3t 11042932200

The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL number. The following link explains:

The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The last digit before the number sequence identifies the YEAR.

Take a look at the link provided and let me know if you still have questions. I hope this helps.

NOTE: Kenmore washers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions will apply to your Kenmore.

Kenmore elite he3t steam front loader - 110.4674-2 --- f35

F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.

Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Not a problem ... Just bought a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer & dryer and read bad evals on these good machines, or should I change my order?

I would send it back ASAP, had our Kenmore Elite front loaders for less than 2 years and it has been nothing but trouble, so far it has cost us $200.00 in repair fees and washer still not fixed, expecting another so called Sears expert out tomorrow that will be another $129.00 for just showing up without guaranteeing he will fix anything.i

Loud noise during spin cycle... maybe a bearing or belt.... no problems during wash cycle

First of all check there is no coin or similar object stuck between the barrel and outer drum. or could be possible object in pump. If you take a look at back of drum (presuming it's a front loader) Look for any water at bottom f drum, this could indicate water seal bearing trouble. If it is the latter then dont just replace water seal, replace the bearings as well. A set of bearings and water seal will cost around £50/£75 and should take a few hours to do.

Kenmore Washer leaks

When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Kenmore Elite Washer (He3t) front load

The bearing in the duet is attached to the outer rear tub of the washer. You have to remove the whole rear half of the outer tub. Take off the back and you will see all the screws around the tub where they attach together. you have to buy the whole rear half too. They wont let you replace just the bearings.
