Kenmore elite quiet pan 4 he4t plastic pieces found in clothes

I have a Kenmroe elite quiet pan 9 he4t and the other day my sister found plastic shrapnel found in the clothes, so she got my dad and had though that he had something in his pockets. He didn't, so he checked some of the things inside and found that there was a plastic piece that is "eroding" "chipping off", hence the reason for the small plastic chunks in our clothes during the wash. During the spin cycle, the drum makes a racket of noise which isn't normal when we do laundry. Now I'm wondering where we can get that plastic piece and replace it. As far as I know the plastic piece is located in front of the drum. As for the racket the drum makes, you can still hear it as the drum slows down. I'm not sure what it is, but my dad and I are willing to fix it ourselves if the problem is not too severe, so that we don't have to hire a repairman. But if it is we have no choice. How do you find the replacement part (plastic piece)? How do you replace it (plastic piece)? Is it able to be replaced(plastic piece)?

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

SOURCE: Replacing the Door Bellow on Kenmore Elite Front Loaders

Hi. Open up the back of the dryer after unplugging it. Take a deep breath. This is not that hard. A dryer is a very simple thing but you need to relax and figure out what the parts are. A dryer has a very basic parts list. The obvious I will not go into with but here goes with the electrical in the guts of the machine. A motor to turn the drum. A heating element. A sensor to sense high temps for safety shutoff of the element. A blower for air. Keep in mind as you look at this that usually power wires are black or red. You will see some wires that are attached to a sensor and then on to the heating elements. Take a test light or volt ohm meter and see if the high temp limit sensor is bad. This can be a simple ten dollar one from Radio Shack. That is, it will it get continuity through it. You may have to detach the wires on this sensor to do this test. The sensor is usually a flattened round disc with two leads coming out of it. Test the element same as the sensor. Take the part where there is no continuity through them to the appliance parts store with the model and serial number of the dryer for appropriate parts. Maybe ten bucks. I know it sounds scary but you may learn something and if all else fails just pickup the phone and call the repairman. Hope this helps.
good luck

SOURCE: Kenmore elite quiet pan 4 he4t plastic piece replacement

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 HE4T standing water


I also have standing water after a wash cycle, but not immediately after. Given the history of very expensive repairs to this Kenmore HE4T washing machine, I suggest you do what I do, if the machine is still cleaning the clothes. Whatever cycle you use, try to be around when the machine finishes, so that you can turn off the water supply and remove the damp clothes to the dryer or clothes line. Turn on the water supply only when you want to use the machine. This works for me because I don't do many loads per week and my laundry area is right next to my kitchen. If it was in my basement, I'd have replaced it already with a top loading machine with mechanical not electronic controls.

Kenmore elite smartwash quiet pak 9 he4t the washer starts filing water when the washer is turned off.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- not closing fully- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T quietpak 9 washer. It has stopped the wash load with about 11 minutes left several times. It gives and error code DL then F alternating. The door remains locked and anytime...


Hi,

The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

Let me know if you want me to help on this.
