    This is happening with my Kenmore Cold Spot too. It's the vertical frame between the freezer and fridge. It's very hot to the touch. It's has been intermittant over the past 24 hours. The coils were very dirty. Have cleaned the coils but it is still getting hot.

    I have this same issue. We moved last weekend and have had to disconect the water & ice make now the panel that is vertical between the freezer & refrigerator is very hot. It almost burns you & the rubber seal on the doors that touch the panel to create a seal is getting hot. I am afraid it will cause a fire. Any suggestions? We have not done anything other then stare at each other and swear :-)

I have a Kemore 80 series washer model not filling properly

Check the inlet hoses for plugged screens at the faucet ends. The screens are usually replaceable if you can't get them clean in a white vinegar/hot water solution. Check the inlet ports to the washer for similar screens. Hope this helps!

Kemore Elite Dishwasher Spews Water When Wash Cycle Begins

After further inspection of my dishwasher I found a bad gasket under the lower wash arm. Over the years it finally gave up and was shooting a torrent of water through the water in the bottom of the wash tub. When all that water hit the door liner it went up into the lower door vents, into to wire harness, and onto the floor.

GC5SHEXNQ02 Whirlpool 2door ref - Panel gets hot

I am not going to say the problem is normal. Normal operation those strips are placed behind the metal and inside the walls around the door seals to prevent moisture or sweating around the doors. They are usually noticed to become hot when there is a change in the control boards operation. Some brands have the hot gas from the condenser circulating around the doors. If your model has an economy switch, switch it on. I would look for any abnormal operation of the refrigerator like compressor or condenser fan stopping or ice buildup or abnormal temperatures in the fresh food compartment. If this continues I would unplug the refrigerator and open the control panel inside the fresh food section and examine both sides of the control board for signs of heat or burn marks on both sides. May not be anything to be concerned about also because this may be the first time you noticed this. But it should not be too hot to touch. Sea Breeze

Kemore HE is leaking when washer is filling up with water

OK, if this leak is coming from the front lower side of the door, this Will eb a door seal issue. make sure the seal isn't compromised by a small object that may have been jammed during the closing of the door. if this isn't the case, replace the faulty door seal.

Now, if this leak is coming from the the bottom back side of the unit. this will be a water valve issue. check the hoses that connect to the inlet valve. make sure the hoses are tightly screwed on there respective sections.

Kemore dryer (Mod#110.66512694) stops running

Reach inside and turn the drum. If it is hard to turn then something may be causing the motor to get hot and quit on overload. An overload is wired into each motor to prevent the copper from melting. If the drum is hard to turn you might want to inspect the rollers and idler. ACCESSING YOUR MACHINE

Inside the door panel

If you mean the area where the gasket is...yes.  This is a mullion heater designed to prevent freezing the gasket to the box.  It should be slightly warm.  Some units have the option of turning thi feature off.  Check your manual.

I have Kemore top load. Door switch needs to be replaced. How do I get to this switch? This is 9 years old

You need to take the case off the washing machine. You can do this by taking the 2 screws out of the front corners of the control panel (Panel with timer). Then that panel will pull forward and flip back. Next there is 2 brass clips holding case on, you pop those out and then you are good to go. Change the lid switch.
