Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Working on a Sears Kenmore Elite Calypso washer (M#110.22082102) Here's the scenario: When the unit is cool (less loaded) the farther the program goes into the spin cycle. When it is cool & empty it will complete the 99 sec test. When it is hot & empty, gets down to 6 sec. Hot & loaded it only goes to 19 sec. Then it starts to nutate instead of spin for 5 sec. Then it senses its not spinning, stops and tries again. It goes on like this for 30 min. Are the motor board power drivers going bad? As they heat they don't get the leading/trailing phase right to it's not going to turn CW when it's hot, so then it turn CCW which is nutate, then it senses it's wrong and starts another attempt. It does this over and over. Where do I start to get this thing right?

    Another thing to think about is SUDS. Since this washer uses so little water and constantly pours that water over them clothes it monitors the amount of suds is in that water. If it feels their are too many then it wil try and fix the problem by pumping and flushing. You gotta be careful about the amount of soap and you must use the correct stuff. The manual tells all about.

Hello. The transmission on this washer is on it's last legs. The fix is to replace it. The problem is the cost of the part and the repair is excessive. UNLESS this unit is both under warranty and less than three years old, put the $ toward a replacement. Joe

Not a problem ... Just bought a Kenmore Elite HE3t washer & dryer and read bad evals on these good machines, or should I change my order?

I would send it back ASAP, had our Kenmore Elite front loaders for less than 2 years and it has been nothing but trouble, so far it has cost us $200.00 in repair fees and washer still not fixed, expecting another so called Sears expert out tomorrow that will be another $129.00 for just showing up without guaranteeing he will fix anything.i

Washing machine

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings. They will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer.

I will not buy this washer again (especially from Sears).
