Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I just fixed this problem in my kenmore washer today. You need to take out the three small screws on the bottom of the front panel. You will need a star shaped screw driver. The panel will fall off when the last screw is removed. After taking off the panel, you will see a large round piece in the middle that should be white; take this piece and turn it to remove the filter. Your filter is most likely clogged with small laundry items or lint and dirt. Remove the blockage and the washer will work great again. This is frustrating, so my wife and I are going out to buy some netting bags for washing small items. Make sure you have a towel under the drain before you open it.
Before doing this though, take a second and reach up under the rubber gasket that circles the inside of the washer door. Your blockage could just be in this area. Our washer had both areas blocked.
Hope this helps
