Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer
Have had my front loading washer for 4+ years and never any trouble. All of a sudden the loads are coming out with dark/greasy spots. Some are long smears and others are spotted patterns that mimic the pattern on the inside of the tub.
HELP. My husband took a look at it, but didn't see anything. It seems to me that there is a bearing leak or something similar. It has also gotten louder during the spin cycle.
This is a cronic problem of front loader machines. The two bearings that hold the wash drum are dried out and then they over heat. The heat build up weakens the seal that keeps water in and grease out starts to leak and the problem just becomes worse with every load. A service repair man will charge you the cost of a new machine to fix the unit. You can replace the bearings and seal with parts from a bearing supply store and if you do, only use bearings from Japan or Germany. Your machine came with ones from China and that is why these machines are failing after 4 years.
