Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My wife overloaded the washer (with a dog bed cushion). Now the drum will not spin. I turn it on and the pump motor buzzes like heck but the drum does not move. Did she burn out the motor? Any help is surely appreciated.

Take out the kick panel at the bottom and clean the pump out, but removing the cap on it.
It might flood it, so have a bunch of towels ready.

LXR7244PQ0 whirlpool top load washer. Problem: Agitator spins when manually turned, wash fills, does not agitate, spin, or drain. I checked lid switch, couplers and rubber piece is fine on motor I have...


Sounds like the motor coupling is bad- it keep the motor and transmission safe when overloaded and its cheap, if the motor is making noise that's the place I'd start. After that it's the motor (make sure it has power when it should) or the transmission- both not cheap.

My frigidaire affinity front load washer buzzes and will not cycle what wouldcause that?


Good Morning Friend,

I see that your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, is buzzing and will not cycle. Some possible causes of this could be:

-Your washer is overloaded with clothes. Try taking some clothes out and restarting.
-There could be an article of clothing that might have slipped in between the gasket and the drum that might be stopping the drum from spinning. Check to see if there are any clothes that might be missing and possibly stuck between the drum and gasket.

If you have tried the above solutions and are still having trouble, I suggest giving your washer a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. After the time has passed, restore power and start a cycle. If your appliance is still buzzing and not spinning, I suggest that you contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine the cause of the buzzing and why it is not spinning. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

What are some benefits to getting a dog bed?


Ok, so there are several benefits to getting a dog bed for your pet. Firstly, like humans, it is important to have your own space. A dog bed will provide your dog with a sense of security. Most beds also protect your dogs' joints and bones with extra cushioning. With a bed of their own, dogs will be less likely to jump up and down from other furniture, in turn preventing possible injuries.

I want to make my dog a bed and wondered what would be the best materials to use?


Take 2 old cushions and sew them together then get a pillow slip and cover the two cushions and make them one big one - hey presto a cheap and easy dogs bed he/she will love it.

Kenmore oasis washer


top loaders use the same motor for wash pump and spin to spin the clothes the motor direction is reversed and a solenoid releases the drum brake allowing the drum to rotate this is governed by a set of clutch shoes in the pulley if these are worn then the machine wont spin at full speed but ol on the display indicates overload so check the solenoid is releasing the drum usually heard as a loud clunk on spin start
