Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore HE2 with a hole in the tub.

I have a Kenmore HE2. The motor mount bolt fell out which allowed the motor to come free and punch a hole in the wash tub. I thought I'd try to glue the piece back in the hole before spending $250 on the replacement part. What type of plastic/composite is the tube made out of? What type of glue would you recommend? Thanks.

I have no way to connect to the granite counter top. Can it be mounted to the side cabinets?


Need prefix for model number. Need complete model number. I believe that the numbers that you have given are stock numbers from your user manual. Kenmore can be several different manufacturers. Some brands have kits to mount unit from the sides using brackets at the top. If stainless steel tub, look for removable plastic caps on the right and left sides of unit. These holes would be used for installing bolts into cabinet. If plastic tub and no kits are available holes can be drilled into sides to secure unit to cabinet. As long as heads of bolts(screws) are flush to allow door closing, unit will not leak because of tub(door gasket.

Kenmore HE2Plus washer. It sounds like a pin or other metal object may have fallen through the holes of the drum. You can hear it roll around when you spin the drum. Is there any way to remove it without...


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

Washer leaks water in the back of the washer but i cannot see any signs of the leak. this is a front load washer . model 970 ca0042 00,


I have a Kenmore front loading washer HE2 Plus.
Started leaking only 6 months old from the back over the spin motor.
I found a bolt had come out of the motor bracket causing the motor to crack a small hole in the plastic outer drum. I've been down for about a month waiting on the part and service. This is under warranty and we cant get any help any sooner from sears, not even a loaner.
Will not purchase Kenmore products again, 2nd front loader from Kenmore, 2nd problems.

My he2 leaks where the hose connects to the back of the tub. There is actually a hole where in the piece where the hose connects to. The hose will not cover this hole when shoved on all the way.


It was actually the overflow tube that was the problem. I plugged the hole using a small bolt and nut with a neoprene washer sandwiched on either side of the hole.
