Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Buzzing/Ratcheting sound while drying

My Kenmore HE2 Plus dryer has begun to make a buzzing, almost ratcheting sound intermittently while spinning. The clothes are being dryed, but the noise is very loud.

    my washer seems to make more & more noise that it didn't use to. the load is balanced, not over loaded, is washing and draining but now a 'ratcheitng' sound while draining/spinning. Pump? Is that something we should try to examine or repair on our own or is it best to call a repair person? Sears repair is $109 min service call to our area. Yikes!

Verify unrestricted air flow at the outside discharge port for the dryer. If in doubt, pull the hose from the rear of the dryer, turn it on and form an opinion about air flow volume, then outside must be very similar.

I have a kenmore HE2 dryer and matching washer. It is 3 years old. It works and eventually clothes do dry. It does heat up. But it doesn't heat up as hot as it used to and it takes twice as long to dry...


Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.
