Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer
Our front load washer is leaving brown marks (some heavy, some faint)...have read that the culprit is a bearing leaking some lubricant...others claim mildew or build-up...any clue out how to resolve this problem - I will take the machine apart if need be!
These machines are terrible. I just had a service person in and he told me that my machine (only six years old) has bearings that are done and they also caused the shocks to go. I went to Sears to talk to the sales person about my Kenmore machine and she said she has never heard of this problem. Meanwhile, friends have also had similar issues - my clothes are ruined and Sears just tried to sell me a replacement machine. I don't know if I will go with another front loader - my parents have had the same washing machine for over 25 years - I guess they are not supposed to last more than 5 or 6 years now.

Dont start pulling machine apart just yet. check your detergent first, you NEED to be using an HE detergent liquid better then powder, if fabric softener is being used thin it out a little(cheaper fabric softeners have a hard time breaking down.did you switch deterent recently??? there is a new product just hit the market AFFRESH tabs (available in home depot and best buy) sure itll be in supermarkets soon. Its designed to clean ou tresidual detergent pockets building up inside all frontloading machines
