Question about Kenmore 45081 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore model 41743142200

I have a front load kenmore that won't spin. It stopped working and I found that the belt had fallen off, after replacing it, now I find that washer does everything but spin. During the spin cycle it acts as if it's in wash cycle (it spins several times in one direction then stops and repeats in the other direction until cycle ends).

Hello, My Kenmore Model #11042822203 Front load washer stops after water goes into the drum. It makes a straining noise. It spun last time I tried it, but went slower than normal.

This could be a lot of things. There is a belt drive on the drum, The belt might be worn out, there could be a bearing that is starting to fail or it could be the motor or motor control board. Kenmore Washer Won Spin

Replace washer spin basket kenmore elite 110

sounds like a bad bearing on the rear of the tub. If you remove the rear access panel you will see a large pulley and belt. That attaches to the inner drum (basket) and spins it. It floats on a bearing just behind the pulley. If the bearing is bad then you will be able to move it up and down about .25 to.50 of an inch.

We put a heavy blanket in the washer and the load stopped suddenly with a washer full of water. It wouldn't spin or empty and made a weak sound but nothing worked. We had to manually empty the water....

Usually that means the drive belt is loose and slipping. You should be able to tighten or replace the belt.
To test the belt you have to remove the washer back.

Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Washer knocks very loud on spin cycle and a belt or something has been coming out in pieces for the last few weeks

I just took the back off my older kenmore front loader and discovered that the concrete counter weight had come off the drum and fallen to the bottom of the machine. Reattached it and knocking has stopped, lucky it didn't trash the machine as it is normally attached to the top of the drum.

This machine spins at HIGH Rpm's so most usual problem is one leg maybe unlevel or possible wood floor maybe "giving " as machine spins and allowing the machine to walk...but then again if machine is "old" shocks could be worn out
