Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Did the repairman replace anything? Do you still need assistance? If so...the dispenser motor and switch can be checked by removing the connector plug from the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the 4th connector from the Left in the front of the control board. A resistance reading across pins 1 & 3 on the connector should read 1400 ohms. Readings across pins 5 & 6 should read 0 ohms. If any of the readings are abnormal, replace the dipenser motor and switch assembly. If the readings are normal, you may have an actuator cam on the dispenser that is not functioning properly. Or, spring lever & connection lever that are broken. All the parts combined would cost you less than $60 if you pursue the option of repairing this yourself. Searspartsdirect.com has the parts you need. Just type in your model number and the parts will be listed as items 11, 12, 13, 15 and 16 under the "Dispenser" heading. More than likely the motor is good and you have something wrong with either the switch or the spring lever and/or connection lever. I hope this helps you.
