SOURCE: What is the capaity of 2005 Kenmore Elite Washer and Dryer, models 110?

Starting in early 2002, the capacity sizes were changed around a little bit. A normal sized washer now all have the same sized tubs (pretty much) in the 110 series (Whirlpool Manufactured) washers. The capacity is now rated somewhat by the agitator action the washer comes with. Depending on the type of agitator you have, will determine the capacity. King size capacity means you have a pretty good capacity (size wise) than others. You have normal capacity, large capacity, super capacity, king capacity, and I even think they have canyon (yes canyon) capacity. Capacity sizes dont really mean to much though. In order for you clothes to get clean, the must have room in the tub to move. The must be able to float up, then get pulled down by agitator action. That should determine the size of what goes in the washer. Always use same type clothing when doing laundry (i.e. towels with towels, sheets with sheets, etc, this will keep the load balanced better). Watch what you load, comforters are ok (per manufactures ok) but I do not tlike the idea unless its a front loader, and only by itself. Let me know if this helps you out any.

SOURCE: trying to figure out Cu. ft. capacity

hi wanda, most top load whirlpool units, they make the sears kenmore models, are around 3.0 cubic feet.
its not that important for a top loader, but when going to a front loader thats how they rate them.
what i would recommend is you buy a unit that will do the laundry that you will need to do for the next 15 years.
what i mean is if you have 2 or more young children, that you will be doing laundry for the next 15 years, then a full size front loader would do you good. size 3.5 c/f or larger, like a whirlpool he4 or he5.
if it is just for 2 people then a smaller unit would be better, like a whirlpool duet or sport model.
the reason for the choice is a front loader needs to be filled up for it to work properly. doing smaller loads in a front loader will cause them to shake and not work as well.
now be ready as the new washers will cost about 1,000 bucks.
another suggestion for 2 people would be the whirlpool cabrio top loader. i like them alot and they have very few parts to fail and have a good reliability.
good luck and happy shopping.
p.s. remember sears will match prices and give you 10% off the best price!!

SOURCE: What cu. ft. size is my Whirlpool top loading

hi there. the best way to determine this is to measure the inside length, height and width and you will get cubic feet. Just be sure to convert each measure to feet. For instance 2 feet 4 inches = 2.33 feet.

Buy the right size fuse. Too big of a fuse can cause a fire.

F21 code still flashes after i've unclogged line - reset?


if you cleaned out the pump by removing the center part of it and it still shows f21,either you didn't clear everything out of the pump,after you pull out the center piece stick your finger inside where the impellar is to see if you feel anything rapped around it,if it's clear and still won't drain then you need to buy a new pump and remove the old pump and install the new pump part number 280187 and it's around 120 dollars http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MFW9700SB1/3048/0153200/W0705107/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

I have a maytag model A312 washer that has worked fine for almost 30 years. Wash cycle works with water pouring in but the barrel will not spin. I cannot even force it to spin around. Any suggestions...


Hello, Awesome Maytag washing machine. Sound like that wonderful Maytag transmission has finally gone to transmission retirement center. I think they might have rebuilt transmission for your Maytag washing machine. Check with your local Appliance Repair Shop---Maytag---. Ask them if they have a transmission but I am thinking here, it could be belt driven. If it is belt driven, empty the washing machine and be careful when turn over your washing machine. There is two concrete block that hangs on a self leveler to keep you washing balanced during the spin cycle.


Also, check for oil under your washing machine and if there oil then your washing machine has a transmission and it is leaking. Well, Tracy you can try the few thing that I mentioned here. But remember I am only suggesting you try these thing and if you don't fell like you can't handle it. Then get your neighbors and friends to help you, please. GB...stewbison

what you can do without harm is remove the washer front panel and tug on the top and it should pull out...you can also raise the front washer legs up into the machine and that too will make it easier to pull out...be sure when replacing the lid switch asm to replace the fuse which is on the rear of the left side washer cabinet panel once front panel is removed

CHANGE THE DRYER BELT MODEL LSE7800ACW MAYTAG WASHER/DRYER COMBO


Hi...you can go to the following website and check out how the belt goes on the dryer.
On a front load dryer, you would normally remove the front to expose the drum and belt, after you remove the drum then that exposes the drum rollers, motor, idler arm pulley, etc.

I have the same problem. I bought it new in the fall of 2007. They replaced the control panel but that didn't help. Next they replaced the whole range with a new one, same model, still the same problem. They told me it was a problem with my electric in my house. Then they said it was a strange electro-magnetic field in my neighborhood and I would have to buy a different brand?
One time with the original stove the oven quit working and I had to re-set the breaker. Everything still works but the clock is always wrong.
We bought all Maytag stuff, including fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. The kitchen stuff is 4 years old. The washer and dryer are 3 years old. We have had this issue with the stove, the washing machine broke and they had to replace the whole drum assembly, and last week my refrigerator broke. Very disappointed with Maytag stuff.
So has anyone found a solution?
