Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore He2 washer that of course is 2 weeks over warranty. When I turn it on the water comes shooting out of the detergent compartment. I checked the hose from the detergent area to the drum and it feels clean. I cleaned out the drain down the bottom of the machine and found a sock and some other things but when I ran the machine again in rinse and spin the water started shooting out again. I felt all hoses and they fell unclogged. Any other ideas?
Remove the ring infronf of the drum, then pull the rubber bit out a littile bit and then pass your fingers round the back towards where the detergent compartment is. Try and see if you can feel a solid object there and remove it, it is a build up of excess detergeng solidifying and blocking the water way to the machine

The detegregent compartment slides out - check to see there is not a backup of detergent clogging the whole. If so clear it out and problem solved.

After searching the internet we discovered that if you slide your fingers in between the metal drum and rubber seal under the soap dispenser area you may find the problem. We had a sock blocking the water inlet. Problem solved! This machine is going to give us a lot of headaches but thanks to the internet we may be able to continue to save money fixing it ourselves.
FYI, I find if you leave the door open a crack after each wash... you avoid the mold smell as well!
