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

Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 1 Model No.110.26942503

Hi,
My tub drips water slowly and constantly.This started after I had a
city water main line coming into my home repaired.
I thought I had flushed out any sand that might have gotten into the
washer intake lines.Can I clean it or do I need to replace the water inlet
valve?
If I need a new valve can you supply the part number and supplier?

It is a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 1 topload washer Model 110.26942503.
Also, is there a website where I might download a schematic or manual in
in a pdf file?

Your help would be greatly appreciated,
Larry

AVibrating sound for 10 seconds- like a moan- after toilet is flushed and filled.What is going on? It doesn't happen every time.


Depends upon several things, the most difficult would be too much air in the pipes. Before having a "anti-hammer" installed; I would try this... go to the supply for the cold water pipe (for that room, dependent upon the age and style of your home) maybe the basement??? See if there is a place, other than the toilet, to turn off the water supply (turn the water off), open the cold water valves of your sink and tub and flush the toilet, and drain about 1 quart of water from that line. Leave the tub and sink cold water valves open and slowly open the valve you turned off, allow water to flow from the faucets and flush the toilet a few times. What you are trying to do is allow the air to escape. Turn off the faucets and flush the toilet again, open the partially closed valve all the way. This should get rid of trapped air, and it is the cheapest first step. This is one example of an "Anti-hammer" device.

Note: On some houses it may be difficult to find a place to drain the cold water line, without turning off the entire home.

When I run hot water for the tub, it has a brown tint


10 year old homes today usually do not have galvanized pipe. They have copper or pex plastic pipe. These do not rust.
Is rusty water on both hot and cold line, or just hot line?
Just hot line, then check anode rod and flush tank:

http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html#flush
Are you on water well? Well casing can get rusted. Water can have minerals. Call local water well service and describe problem in detail.
Are you on city water or mudd district water? Is pipe coming into house made of galvanized? Look inside meter box or look at pipe coming into house. Sometimes the city water line at end of run can get filled with sediments that will discolor water. Have water company flush the city water line.

My Kenmore Elite Quiet Pac 4 allows water to slowly come in after a cycle has finished and everything says it is off. What is the problem?


There is a valve inside your washer that needs to be replaced. Call sears and have them replace it. You'll need to give them the model and serial #'s.

Kenmore elite smartwash quiet pak 9 he4t the washer starts filing water when the washer is turned off.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- not closing fully- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

My Kenmore elite HE4 quiet pak 9 electric dryer is working, but it emits a constant series of 3 beeps, and sometimes shuts off before the cycle is complete. I have to unplug it to stop the beeping....


You are getting moisture in the control panel buttons. After a while the panel will not function at all. The light in the dryer tub will still come on when the door is open. When you unplug your machine and it sets for awhile you are allowing the moisture to dry and the machine can reset. Some people use a hair dryer to dry out the control panel for a temporary fix. Eventually, you will have to get it replaced once it stops resetting for you.
