Question about Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft. Portable Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore top load portable washer, model 110.42722200

Have had washer for 4 years. Purchased from previous tenant who purchased it new from Sears 1-2 years prior. I do several loads once a week and a few months ago it began leaking. Nothing major at first, but now I have to pack towels around the base of the machine.

I'm so desperate I'm thinking of taking it apart myself to see if it's just a hose that needs tightening or replacing. Any help would be much appreciated!

    I should have included that this machine leakes from the bottom, the visible hoses on the back of the machine are not the source of the leak - but I will check for loose hoses - thank you!

I had same prob. at my daughters house, similar model. first time a hose popped off the top(i removed the lid), later i noticed leaks because my son in law was using oxy clean and it foamed over. my advice is, put machine on its side and look for loose/popped off hoses, dont use too much soap or additives, which will trick the water level sensor or just pour over that little drum

Water refills when not on


We came home to a flooded basement because it appears the washer filled on its own when we were gone for several days and are in the middle of an investigation about why/how this happened. If anyone has any information on similar malfunctions please let me know. We purchased our machine on 1/22/05.

Sounds like there may be a mechanical problem and Maytag has some explaining to do...

F35 and Suds error on Kenmore Elite HE5t


I also got the SUDS error followed by F35 many times. I replaced the analog water level switch, Wirlpool part number W10156252, and the problem went away. The part is located against the back right corner of the top of the washer after removing the top cover. The part cost $62.99 + $12.95 express shipping from ApplianceZone.net. I have the Kenmore HE3t Steam Washer, model number 110.46752 700 front loader. I was able to run about 6 loads of laundry by unplugging the washer, waiting about 5 minutes, the re-plugging and re-starting the washer. Thereafter, the problem became permanent. I always used HE detergent. The washer was purchased new in December 2007, and the I made the repair in September 2009. I spent about $1300 for the Kenmore H3t Steam Washer, and I am disappointed that it required repair after less than 2 years. My mothers old Maytag washer lasted more than 15 years, and was not susceptible to soap SUDS.

Washer fills and starts for a while and then stops


2c97879.jpg
I recieved the followng letter from sears last week since we had registered our OASIS He washer two years ago since we purchased it new. The washer has a serial number that is authorized to get a replacement board, and the part has been shipped to my house. Once it arrives, we are to call the local Sears dept for someone to install the new board.

For washers that have the first four of the serial numbers as:
CS48-CS52 or CT01-CT49 qualify for the replacement Control Board.

1-800-847-9083 between 8am-8pm M-Saturday.

Good Luck all.

F 35 Does your machine use alot of water? The pressure switch has failed or the tube has a hole in it. If the machine is new and purchased at Sears it is under a warranty for defects for a year.

Will not advance to the rinse and spin cycles...


The buzzing can only be that the pump if sticking or the inlet valve is sticking, other than that it is lack of water supply. Regards Advisor
