I have a top load Sears Kenmore washer, miodel #15842, purchases in 2004. It has a horrible odor coming from it & I'm wondering if a filter is clogged. How do I open the top of the machine to take a look?

You will find a screw attached to the drum, which keeps it intact to the structure. Unscrew it and pull the drum hard to take it out. Clean the components using running water.

Enamel finish exensive chipping. Revealing 1/8 inch thick coorosion underneath. Problem is over 50% of the machine.


Horrible, horrible, horrible expensive machine. I finally had to buy a really cheap machine as a substitute, and it works perfectly. Sometimes expensive does not mean quality. Sorry!

Kenmore model #22622100 top load washer. My question is our washer has a sour smell and we have pulled it out from the wall. We are wondering how to take the top off.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer with diagrams and parts lists. Always a good reference tool.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11022622100/0582/0153200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=11022622100

Next, see the following for how to release the console and remove the cabinet:

As a final reference, see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:

Clothes come out covered in lint after washing


Sears top load / direct drive washers don't have specific Lint Filters.

See the Use and Care manual for these washers for hints.

Sears / Kenmore top-loading washer does not dispense bleach


Remove the tray and check the proper operation of the solenoid for the door.

Musty odor in laundry


I would say that you are getting a build up of soap and oil from our bodies, on the inside of your wash bowl.
The Tubs pull out of the washing machine really easy and then you can water blast the two tubs.Solves this problem?
Once you learn how to pull the tub out you can also clear a blocked pump.
I have a after market lint filter fitted to my F&P washing machine,works wonders .
ask your local whiteware Man for some hints on a Bowl removal.

Will not advance to the rinse and spin cycles...


The buzzing can only be that the pump if sticking or the inlet valve is sticking, other than that it is lack of water supply. Regards Advisor
