Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

How do I get to the inside?

I have some minor sporadic leaking. I suspect that this is due to either the hoses, or even more likely, the dog hair needs to be removed from the filter.

But how the heck to I get to it? Tip it over? I don't see a way to open it from the front and the manual is useless on illustrating where either of these things are once I get into the machine.

I remember watching my father repair their washer, but there was a front panel that opened.

Look along the front seam of the washer where the top panel meets the front. There is a retaining clip about 2 inches in from each side that you need to release to get the top to lift up. Use a putty knife to fit inside the seam and push straight in, while lifting on the top at the same time. The clip will release and the top will come open. HINT: A second set of hands and an additional putty knife will make this process a lot easier. Also, as you lift the top you will need to hold on to the lid so it doesn't fly open when you lay the top back. Using some duct tape to hold the lid shut prior to opening the top will keep this from happening.

You mentioned some sporadic leaking...since the tub is suspended from four support rods, there can be a lot of side to side motion of the tub when the load gets unbalanced. The fill hoses are mounted to the top of the washer, while the dispenser tray is located on the tub rim. So, when the tub shakes in a significant manner, sometimes the fill hoses do not meet up with the dispenser. This causes water to pour on to the floor and miss the tub. This type of washer has a large tub and was designed for large capacity loads. Washing smaller loads can sometimes lead to frequent out of balance issues. I believe the manufacturer has come up with a new improved main control board that alleviates some of this. If you wash larger loads and keep the tub balanced some of your leaking may go away. Just a thought...I hope this information helps you.

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

Barracudu wont go up the walls anymore and seems to get stuck in corners


Check your filter. It may be dirtier than it once was. If Sand Filter, use a "Sand Filter Cleaner" to soak the sand & remove the particulate that normal backwashing won't remove. If cartridge filters, then the elements need to be soaked overnight with a Cartridge filter cleaner. If DE, then - grids need to be removed and even possibly cleansed (mild acid wash) then recharged with fresh DE.

Or... check internals of pump. The impeller may be plugged where the flow is reduced. Internals of the cleaner itself, is also suspect. check for any sucked up large debris: pine cones, toys, plastic bags, etc. You may also have a pinhole or larger in the suction hose. Do you have a dog or critters (possums, squirrels, raccoons?) they have been known to Attack the hose and the teeth put holes into the hose. Just a minor hole will affect the efficiency of the operation of a suction style cleaner.

What is the best pet grooming tool besides shampoo?


My favorite grooming tool is the mitt. It is a glove that you wear and swipe alongyour dog's coat. It is good for allkinds of dogs, big, small, and even smooth or wire haired. It is rubber so it collects stray hairswithout scratching your dog. Dependingon how much hair it collects, they tend to stay on the mitt and not to falloff.

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband...


Check to see if your brush is not worn down, they do wear with age - compare the length of the bristles with a new one. Replace the brush ir there is a significant difference in bristle lengths. Also check the flexible bend where the pick-up head joins onto the upright section for blockages and fluff.

You probably have a frozen water tube - the tube where the water comes out into the icemaker, on the inside. If you had water trickling down that tube due to air in the line then it could have frozen. I've seen this before. Check it out and defrost with a hair dryer if this is the case.

When vacuuming hardwood floor, hair gathers on brush and never sucks into vacuum. I spend most of my time cleaning off brushes. How do I clean hardwood floor with dog hairs.


1. Broom and dust pan, then mop
2. Wet dry vac with wide non-brush attachment
3. Here's a link to a vacuum professing to clean pet hairs well

http://www.evvive.com/shop-by-brand/miele-open-box-canister-vacuums/miele-s516-cat-dog-vacuum_2

4. Try to find a wide attachment for the hose that has no brush, maybe something from a wet dry vac.

5. Take your dog outside and brush every day. It helps, but no matter what you do, you will have pet hair if you have an indoor pet.

6. Go to the source. See if your dog will be vacuumed. Half serious on this one.


Good luck!

I have a kirby g4 vacuum that is 12 years old. it sounds like


About once a month as I have German Shep dogs and cuz of the hair I check all the hoses to make sure they are free of dust bunnies. I also take the bottom plate off the roller, turn the lever to losen the belt and take the roller off. Clean/cut all the strings, hair etc off the roller , check the belt for cracks and burns and replace if need be. Put the roller cover back on, and reconnect the belt.

Then on the side of the machine where the bag attaches, this also slides out to clean. Sometimes heavier items will get stuck in there so that dog hair and larger items cannot pass to the bag and it clogs. This will make your suction very low.

Also a good check inside the bag compartment and clean with the attachment hose if need be, helps a great deal with ordor and dust when turned on. Especially if you have dogs/dander and hair. Ive also put carpet fresh inside my bag to keep the doggy ordor down.

Bissell Pro Heat 8910 clogged?


Why the motor sounds muffled I am not sure. When the water is sucked up, it goes directly into the tank. The motor only creates the suction so it can do that. There should be a filter on the rim of the recovery tank lid, is it clean? Other then pulling the top cover off, and then the motor cover so you can inspect the motor, I really don't have a good answer for you. I t may be that that clump of hair when down the chute and into the fan, I have seen that happen with vacuum motors before.

Lift-Off Pet Hair vacuum doesn't lift off pet hair!


very light "stuff" like dog hair will get stuck to the filter since that is where the suction goes. it's primary purpose was to keep dust out of the motor. This is a problem with many "bagless" cleaners. A bagged cleaner keeps all dirt and hair away from filters by utilizing the bag as primary filter. If you have alot of dog hair then this may have been the incorrect choice of a vac. all you can do is brush off the filter each time you use the vac. it will still pick up o.k. even when there is hair on the filter unless you leave it on day after day.
