Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

I have a old kenmore top load washer I took apart to unsieze the motor. I was wondering what the four plastic cups with nails in them are for? Are they supposed to be pushed up and they drop down when the washer is not balanced?

THEY ARE THE SHIPPING PINS THAT FALL INTO THE CUPS AFTER THE STRAPS ARE REMOVED WHEN DELVERED. KEEP THEM THERE OR THROW THEM AWAY. THEY ALREADY SERVED THEIR PURPOSE.

Stopped agitating


Its probably what they call "dog ears". My washer was doing the same i took off the cap on top of the agitator and un screwed the bolt. I grabbed that white piece out and there were four little plastic pieces that looked like dog ears and i replace them for under 1.00 and mine was fine after that.

Product = model 15962 Problem = really bad smell


A good trick that i found was to fill tub with hot water and put a full cup of dishwasher detergent any kind but has to be powdered not liquid detergent. Do this two times in a row and then every month.

Spins , but not fast enough to get water out of clothes.


I had exactly the same probelm on my four year old Roper. I took the clutch apart and it had some foreign material on the white plastic clutch surface. I cleaned it up with fine sand paper and also used some emery cloth on the stainless steel "cup" that the clutch bears on. To increase the tension on the spring I added a couple of washers at each end. The washer now spins just like new. If your clutch is really warn out - down to the rivet surface you can get a new one for about $40 from most appliance repair shops

Constantly off balance


I have a kenmore elite oasis top loading washer about 3 years old. I took it apart and checked the springs and the rods and the plastic ends that hold the rods in place and all of them look fine. I run an empty load in the washer and it still goes unbalanced on the spin cycle. My water bill has tripled due to the fact that every load takes 3 to 4 washings. I need help please!
