Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite HE3T Washer sounds like a plane taking off? (Loud!)

Hello this washing machine is 5 yrs old and we love it but the last few months during the spin cycle - about in the middle of the wash- it just starts banging like crazy. I stopped it and readjusted the load but it still went back to banging. Checked to see it was level and it is. REALLY appreciate any help we can get to fix it. Hard time affording to have a tech come out right now as we can't really afford it.  Thanks for taking the time to help it is appreciated! Dave

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Kenmore elite he3t front load washer will not take detergent into the machine but will empty the bleach and softner


Hello,

This means the valve is bad. You can make this repair yourself. The top of the machine comes off three screws.

The valve is on the rear of the machine. I could look the part number up for you, let me know

Kenmore Elite HE3t broken belt, maybe?


Chances are due to the description of your problem, especially the noise you describe, is most likely a serious issue. If it sounded like a jet engine when going into spin, the rear bearing may be shot which breaks the belt. This happens over time from using too much sudsy detergent and it drys out the seal and binds up the basket shaft and pow, it blows out the belt. Forget about fixing it, its a gonner! (Sorry) If you replace it with another High efficency machine, READ THE DIRECTIONS AND FOLLOW THEM TO THE LETTER. Especially the use of He detergents only!!

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Kenmore elite front loading wash & dryer-5 yrs old: should i buy?


all kenmore named washer will have 110 as first 3 digits of model #..the he washers are usually good washers..like all front loads they have their quirks ..if you read reviews from other consumers they indicate problems ..most of which are easily remedied by reading owners manuals..mold /mildew usually a bleach clean every few months ..vibration need real solid floor..oversuds use HE detergents only..just a matter of changing mind set from top loads with 25 gals of water each fill to a front load with 5-6 gals each fill..top load with 750-850 rpm spin speed to front load 1000-1200 rpm ..if willing to learn proper use and what to expect they can best investment..just don't let opinions of those unwilling to adapt affect your decision
