Bought used washer porcelain tub finish is worn off in bottom

Bought used kenmore washer-porcelain tub finish is worn off in bottom didn't think it was going to be a big problem but it is - it's really damaging clothes - especially knits but it's also messing up even towels. bought a product called restore-4 to try-anyone used it? sounds more like a cleaner than a finish restorer. Tub looks like someone washed a load of rocks in the bottom - it's really bad. Thought about using a porcelain paint but i guess you'd have to remove the tub and I have no idea how to do that. any suggestions???

pocelain is baked on and is glass so any edges will catch and destroy cloths

I have a Kenmore N2. What would make my front load washer fill back up with some water after the drain and spin cycle is complete?? IF I let the washer go until it's done and go downstairs to take out,...


first, run a rinse,drain & spin cycle. after it finishes filling, shut the water supply (taps) off. If water enters the washer after the drain, it has to be sifoning back in from the DRAIN hose. Check to see if the drain hose is not going up above the washer more than a few inches

WHY IS THERE RUST IN MY WASH MACHINE DRUM


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Take out the clothes immediately after the washer stops spinning. Also clean the tub with a rust remover. This issue occurs due to bad drum bearing and it may be grease rather than rust. Although the tub is metal with porcelain coating and it wears around the edge of the holes first, leaving metal without porcelain. On spinning the centrifugal force pushes the clothes against the basket and some water sneaks into the holes. Due to this you may see the rust on clothes. If still the issue persists, then the tub is required to be replaced to resolve the issue. Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

HE3T Kenmore Frontload Washer Random Draining Problems


The water pumped goes right back into the machine. It may be because the washer is siphoning the water from the laundry tub with a slow drain and back. Your solutions are advised but try this also:
  1. Check the pump impeller for obstruction.
  2. Cut the drain hose into the laundry tub in excess of 4 inches.

My washer is thumping


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 hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
