This advice from Sears to replace baffles only applies to dryers. The baffles for the washer are installed from inside the basket. If you can't locate mounting from inside the basket, then the entire basket/tub will have to be removed and disassembled.(big job)... But I am pretty sure they mount from inside. Washer or dryer, there are three screws in the rear along the top. Remove screws, slide top toward rear and lift off.

Kenmore Elite oasis 2709 ol signal came up, initially sears repairman said that the drum needed to be replaced so they ordered one and about a week later it showed up, then I wait a week for service guy to...


The "liquid" you here sloshing around in there is supposed to be there,it helps it to stay balanced when it spins at Hightower speed. Also you should use the "clean washer" cycle about once a month,... It helps get rid of the hard water deposits that build up, unless you have a water softener unstaaled in the house - but most people don't. If you do a lot of laundry, the strut rods that hold the drum in place wear out( mine lasted six years) and that will make it out of balance when it goes into drain and spin cycle.

My Kenmore washer model 700, top loading, has a problem with the drum. It seems the drum is let go.it starting jumping around. The washer is only 1 year and 4 months old and warranty expired. Anyone know...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It sounds as if the "spin tube" that turns the drum has become dis-connected from the "drive block" which locks the spin tube to the drum.

See the following for how to access the tube and drive block.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't need a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked around one of the tabs on the nut and hit the handle of the wrench with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal) instead put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap the wood up with a hammer.

If the tabs on the drive tube aren't aligned with the slots in the drive block, the tub can move around.

Our front loading Kenmore MODEL 41742042100.has begun sounding like a jet enjine when it is spinning,someone told me that it is probably bad bearings, is it worth having this 7yr old machine repaired or...


Hi.

I

f you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise islouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Kenmore Oasis becomes unbalanced all the time


Its a tricky repair. there is a spring that sits on the base of the motor. You need to remove the pulley and plastic gears to gain access. This spring is slipping causing drum not to spin correctly. Remove it and clean properly with solvent . If broken replace. Reinstall and retry.

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

Replacing the drum baffle in kenmore elite he3t front loading washers


The baffle basket, I ordered from sears for my Kenmore Elite he3t washer was a "new" design but the screw holes lined up. My baffle basket did not come with the screw either. I took out the screw from an existing baffle basket and found something close. Test it in the baffle basket before you try to install it. Be careful not to drop the screw or bit.

To replace the baffle basket. Remove top of washer using a screwdriver with a T20 torque bit. There are three screws at the rear. The top slides back about an inch and lift up. Place aside. Then you will see a hose going into the drum. Ignore the clamp, just squeeze the end going into the drum and work it out. Now you need to insert the baffle basket in the drum through the front door. It is easiest to rotate the drum so you are inserting it on the bottom. It slides in with the small end toward you and you must pull it forward. Hold the drum for leverage. Now rotate the drum so the new baffle is on top. You need to line up the screw hole and screw in a small screw. Replace the hose and top of washer.

Good Luck...

Clanking noise during spin cycle


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