Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have grease in my 9 yr old Kenmore Calypso washing machine basket. Looks like it is making its way from the motor area. Can it come from the motor past the seals? What is the fix?

The seals on the bearings is likely worn and will have to be replaced. The agitator and drum will have to be pulled if you are going to pull the bearings and seal. Daysappliance and partselect should have everything you need.

My kenmore elite calypso washer is making a buzzing sound one minute into the wash cycle. It is about 9 years old. Should I fix it? How?


Sorry you had the bad luck to buy a calypso washer,probably the worst washer ever made! I also had the misfortune of owning this washer from hell. My washer had the same sounds as you described and in my case it was the water pump, which in this machine is separate. It wont be to long before you will have a total failure and then the fault light will come on.I am on my third pump and looking for a new one. Good luck on this one.

Black specks on cloths after washing


I can't solve your problem, but I can say I have the same problem. I think grease is getting past the seals and getting into the washing basket with the cloths. I have a repair guy coming tonight. Hopefully he will confirm and fix. My machine is 9 years old and never a problem..till now.

A few clothing items have come out of the dryer with black stains on them - looks like grease. It happens a lot with sheets. I'm guessing it happens in the wash, but I'm not sure - it couldbe the dryer...


how old is the machine... 9 times out of 10 when there is grease deposits, the tranny is starting to go, and throwing grease in the machine. Happens with all washers near the end of their life.

WHIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II MAKES YELLOW BROWN STAINS ON LIGHT COLOR CLOTHES


Grease will not come from the interior of the washer, as the machine ages build up deposits under the basket and it is oily, greasy and full of mildew. If can get a spanner wrench from a appliance parts house and remove the basket you will see on machines older than three years a build up starting. I pulled 15 lbs from a 25 year old machine and I had to go get sick outside, it was bad.

Smelly wash tub, in washer.


Model nums are fine in the store, if it is an oasis or calypso make sure drain hose is not in drain more than 5 inches. If not your pump might be going out or is clogged. A great cleaner developed is called washer magic and it will help the smell with some elbow grease. If not and is a traditional top load check motor and gearcase or even the timer for wear in a old machine.

Calypso washer


You likely have clothing stuck under the wash plate. I received "out of balance" & "suds lock" errors & tried resolving the issue with extended spin and extra rinse cycles with the same results you have describe "not going below 7 min left in cycle". Thinking I had a clogged drainage hose, I removed the back panel after hose disconnection and "snaked" drainage hose - had problem here once before. Some lint here again but not enough to cause problem I reasoned, then I move to the basket area. Remove the plastic cover in the middle over the wash plate with a flat head screw driver by pressing in on indented tabs. Once removed, use a 10mm socket & ratchet to remove wash plate. I had three pieces of laundry underneath, 2 socks, & a microfiber runner's tank top. I concluded this to be the major problem caused by the small items entering in the gap in the rubber ring around the wash plate. This gap has increased over time by the ring's shrinkage. I am applying silicone to close this gap, but will also use a mesh laundry bag for smaller items in the future. Also recheck the leveling of the machine - mine was off considerably. Once I reassembled the wash plate & hose connections, the machine began working properly. No doubt, this design was not well thought through.
