SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Oasis, fabric softer thing exploded...

Okay...the cone actually goes inside the the two other pieces you mention. The cone is to be inserted upside-down. That is, the opening of the cone should be facing UP. The way this fabric softener dispenser is supposed to work is, you place fabric softener thorugh the opening of the dispenser. The cone actually holds it like a cup. When the washer goes through the initial spin cycle before the rinse cycle begins, the centrifugal force of the washer spinning forces the fabric softener out of the cone and into the wash tub.

The dispenser assembly should just snap right on top of the agitator. If the dispenser does not stay on securely any longer, you may have to replace it with a new one. You can find replacements at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the same model number you provided and look for item number 1 under the "Motor, Basket and Tub Parts" heading.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know.

PS It is also a good idea to periodically remove the dispenser and soak it in some hot water to get rid of accumulations of hardened softner. They will clog from time to time.

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer will not spin

Although I had just cleaned the filter about 5 weeks ago, my wife had recently washed a pillow that came apart in the wash. I did not know this but noticed the clothes dripping wet after the high speed cycle. I was thinking it was the drain problem like I read in the post from bluefuzz. I pulled the filter and it was LOADED full. Before calling the repairman, CHECK YOUR FILTER! You won't need to disconnect any hoses.

There can be a loose bearing between the drum and the outer wall of the machine but, there is definitely something loose. I know that this is not what you would like to hear but, the best advice anyone can give you is have your machine looked at by a specialist. Moreover, going to your washing machine retail store, should have the equipment you are looking for, or you can search for it online and compare prices.

Kenmore elite washer troubleshooting


Sounds like your bearings are worn and need replacing... a horrible job. The frayed plastic may mean a new drum. To replace the bearings you must remove and separate the drum which requires removing the top, front, and back panels. Lots of clips, screws, hoses, wires.... I'd take it on if this were my unit; but for a client, I'd say get a new one. This is not uncommon for these units. Sorry.

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

How do your remove the drum in a Kenmore front-loading washing machine? A piece of metal got through one of the holes in the metal basket where the clothes go, and I am afraid it will block the drum from...


Disassembling this machine is a quite daunting experience that I would not suggest you attempt.
I'd rather suggest you get ahold of this metal piece with a pair of vise grips and try to pull it out manually, this may require using some force.... but if it went in, it will come out.

Dryer putting black smears on clothes


The white plastic pieces just inside the font of the drum are the front bearings there are aboutfour of these, you will need to take the front of the machine to put them in, your clothes are probably picking up black smeres from where the plastis bearings have worn.
