Question about Kenmore 40042
I have a Kenmore 40042 which was a gift and slightly used when given to us 4 years ago. The machine is broken and needs an inner and back half outer tub (that is what was written on the work order). The repairman said to get a new machine because fixing it was going to be very expensive.
Since it was a gift, we are likely to buy a new machine. Our family is larger now and we need a bigger machine.
1. How large was the capacity of the 40042? 3.2CF? We need something larger
2. What models are recommended these days? We've seen some LG's at Home Depot and wondering about those. the LG 0642 seems attractive.
Ovenon what you what is 18lb to 20. Bosch is 18, LG 18 & 20 (depending on model), Whirlpool is 18 however I hear they have a 20 now as well. The big think to remember is that machines will break. Make sure you can get service in your area before buying. 2nd don't go by looks, but will it do the job I want to do, looks don't clean laundry. If LG is what you are really thinking of, call the local servicer and get his opion. If he works on lots of them, well there is the service history in a nut shell. Note, what propably took out your old machine is too much high sudsing detergent. Water will not affect the rear bearings, however detergent is designed to remove the bearings grease. Hope this helps.
