Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore he3 Thanks for the suggestion, but I tried getting a manual at - no luck. They did have a "ask a question" page and I did fill out the info and asked them how to do a pre-soak with more than 1/3 cup of allowed bleach for whites, but they haven't gotten back to me.

Getting around the way the boards are pre-programmed is not something they write into the manuals or even make programable. If you want to soak with more bleach, open the dispenser drawer after the unit has filled and add a bleach/ water miture to the soap area of the dispenser. This will let it run into the machine and will get you more bleach in there.

I have an older Sears Craftsman air compressor 1hp, 100 psi twin cyl Model 106.154541. on the cyl base there is an oil fill directly across from this on the opposite side of the cyl base there is another...

The pump used on your compressor was incorporated into different designs thus needed access to oil fill from one side or the other. Part number for oil plug was std-220 or 27642, but you can use just regular standard pipe thread plug with square head. If the oil plug fits the other hole. Buy plumbing parts at Lowes. Good Luck

I have Craftsman 6 1/4 Professional Series Jointer Model #150-217060 and I would like to know where I can go on line to download the owners manual for this power tool

I don't know whether you ever got an answer to your query, but I'd suggest you have a look at the Sears support site at (Don't ask me, I didn't name it.)
You don't mention how old that model is, but if you have no luck there, try this site and it's possible there's one there or a similar model you can download that will provide the needed info for you.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Viking with CRAZY Ignitor

Hi there, I am attaching your manual in case it helps you.

On page 53, in the troubleshooting chart, the ninth item down seems to suggest similar 'problems' - including possible 'cause / remedy' to the right in same chart.

The manual includes the manufacturers contact info on page 1 of this pdf (the back page of the manual itself.).

Or, the manual LINK is here:

(and attached as noted above). Good luck to you!

(Hope this helps - please click below if so, thanks!)

Kenmore Microwave Oven - Clock dosen't work

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and try again.

If that doesn't work, you may have a problem with the keypad, but your best bet is to check your owner's manual first.

If for some reason you don;t have yours, you can probably get it via the Sears site.

Just enter your model number there.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.


That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.

If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the
Sears parts site.

If you still have toruble despite using the manual, you may have a failed keypad. If so, please reply back or feel free to contact me directly.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Manual transaxle fill level

There is a fill plug on the side of the trans, fill it to just below that plug hole. Make sure you use the correct fluid, consult the dealer for that info.

Need help assembling

Sorry no luck with a manual either, but here is a review - this guy might be worth getting in touch with: Other alternative is to borrow a 12 year old boy and let him get on with it. Sears are about as much help as leprosy - please complain to their customer "service" people in the hope that they might improve. Hope this helps, the review is not too encouraging i'm afraid :) Good luck
