KENMORE ELITE HE 3- MODEL 44832200

HELP!!!! I bought a washer and dryer set in 2004 and the washer is not working right. It will wash but when it comes to spinning it starts to click like teeth on a machine. It seems to try to spin. Sometimes it will get some water out but they are still soaked. I dont know how to fix this and I dont have the money for a repair man to come and look at it. Please help me if you can....

    ok i think you have something stuck in your drain pump unplug washer from outlet before starting . facing the washer remove the two screws and remove the bottom panel if you have a wet dry vac then open washer door and pull the drain hose out of the drain and use the wet dry vac to vacuum the water out of the washer you will hear through the door when it is empty if you do not have a wet dry vac go to the auto parts store and buy a radiator hose clamp. There only about 5 or 6 $ will save you alot of mess. Look in the bottom of the washer underneath where you took the panel off and you will see a small motor. It will have a round white face and two hoses clamp the hose with the radiator clamp tightly. On the round white piece that looks like it has a bar across it turn it to the left, and remove it. Clean anything out that you see, such as coins strings ect, and check the impeller for broken blades buy looking into the pump itself. And if any are broken you will have to replace the pump. If not reassemble and don't forget to remove clamp lol. I forgot once

    vacuum the water out through the drain hose

  • robert samples Dec 31, 2007

    they may still be something in there you missed but long as its working use it you may have to replace the pump if it goes out all together one day but not now when you get caught up you can go back in and look with a flashlight into the pump if the grinding dont stop also take a light and look closely at all the holes in the tub like a nail or screw and is lightly scraping the inner tub and tell everyone to check their pockets before washing clothes lucky you have a kenmore as they are built by whirlpool other washers don't have that screen also you should thank the webmaster for running that site

Kenmore Elite & Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer Control Panel Locked


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Hopefully, this simple advice will save you an expensive service call.

Kenmore washer elite 44832200, error code h and f


The error codes aren't listed in the owner's manual.

Each one of these washers come with a technical data sheet inside. To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams.

Read through the information and let me know if you need assistance beyond what the tech sheet provides. I hope you find this information helpful.

Need to disassemble a kenmore elite oasis dryer


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

I need a manual for a Kenmore washer, model # 1102708604.


I have now got the manual for the Kenmore Elite washer and dryer coming in by mail. I had gone to the local Sears store and then to the service center close to home. The service center was able to find the manuals and order them for me.

Thanks for your help.
