Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
It makes a noise like it wants to work but just cannot connect. It is only 4 years old. I have been able to get it to start. It comes and goes.
Your drain trap (or pump) is clogged and it won't drain out fast enough for the computer to recognize it. The drain has to be cleared, OK?
Here's how to do it...first look at the lower panel. You'll see three screws down there.
What I do is lift the front of the washer a bit and slide in my pair of hammer handles under the legs like this... (this gives me some work room under the lower panel)
See where it says "Pump Trap"? (also notice that I have my shop vac at the ready) Unscrew the trap JUST far enough so you get some water leaking from it. Then fire up the shop vac and make sure as much of the water that drains from there doesn't get on the floor.
After you get all the water out (without completely removing the trap... this could take 30 minutes, be patient) then unscrew the trap completely and remove it. (You won't believe the stuff that's in there!) Clean everything, OK?
After that all you have to do is rebuild it all and you washer will be happy.
There ya go! Don't forget to show me somew FixYa Love I get a message F dl from my front load washing ma - 897292b.jpge, OK? Cool!
