Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Kenmore front load washer not filling with water. Magnet fell out of det dispenser area. Cannot find where it is suppose to be located.
Answer: The magnet goes on the back of the dispenser door. Pull entire dispenser out per instructions elsewhere in manual as if you were going to clean it. Turn it around so that you are looking at it from the back end. The magnet goes vertically on the very left edge (as you're looking at it, right edge when dispenser is in machine) of the back of the white outer cover of the dispenser about halfway down. If you run your finger along the left edge (the edge of the back of the dispenser) you will find a "cut out" area. The magnet goes immediately to the right of it between the edge and the portion of the dispenser that sticks further out toward you. There is a small clip to hold it in place.
I found instructions somewhere on the web similar to these that helped me locate it , but can't find it now to link or give credit. I have added some photos I took to help schematically challenged folks like myself.
PS If you need bifocals remove the front cover from the dispenser, take your glasses off and look at the far middle left of the back of the dispenser cover. It's really hard to see.

Hi mine did the same thing. Remove the Dispenser door. If you take the magnet you will notice that on the right side, inside of the dispenser, is magnetic as well . If you than place the magnet the bottom of the faceplate on the same side (there is a groove). The Magnet is sort of on an angle. Hopefully this helps.
