Kenmore 417.43142200 Washer

You advised one user to remove the top and indicated there would be mounting equipment? Is it under the top? Or is it separate? I'm trying to find a dryer and stacking kit for my washer and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Need advise on removing the top mounting bolt on a starter of a 1998 ford explorer


Hi Jcetkt, Make sure the park brake is fully engaged. Chock the wheels and prepare a long extension with the correct size socket spanner, (A box wrench set onto a long extension) Slide under the vehicle and loosen it from the bottom. It may be a good idea to have a pal guiding the wrench from top side. Regards John

Spark Plug change


An individual ignition coil (1) is used for each spark plug. The coil fits into machined holes in the cylinder head. A mounting stud/nut secures each coil to the top of the intake manifold. The bottom of the coil is equipped with a rubber boot to seal the spark plug to the coil. Inside each rubber boot is a spring. The spring is used for a mechanical contact between the coil and the top of the spark plug. These rubber boots and springs are a permanent part of the coil and are not serviced separately. An O-ring (2) is used to seal the coil at the opening into the cylinder head.

1. Depending on which coil is being removed, the throttle body air intake tube or intake box may need to be removed to gain access to coil.
2. Disconnect electrical connector from coil by pushing downward on release lock on top of connector and pull connector from coil.
3. Clean area at base of coil with compressed air before removal.



4. Remove coil mounting nut (2) from mounting stud.
5. Carefully pull up coil from cylinder head opening with a slight twisting action.

6. Remove coil from vehicle

Plymouth grand voyager 1999 is not showing the readings on my dash for the fuel, speedometer, and has not passed emissions. What could be the problem?


Here is the procedure to check the gage connector on the back of the instrument cluster. The procedure is a lot longer if you have a mechanical PRNDL indicator in the cluster. I'm thinking you don't. You don't need to remove the cluster as the procedure says, because you're just going to check the connectors on the back. You just need to take the screws out and tilt it forward far enough to reach in and push the connectors in.

I have a Kenmore Elite top load washer, model # 110.16972500. I got a shoelace cought under the agitator.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Take a look at this link so you can see what parts secure your agitator in place:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK0507016-00003.png

Also see this link for item number descriptions:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11016972500/0583/0153200/K0507016/00003?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=11016972500

You have to lift off the cap (Item 1) and then the inner cap & washer (Items 22 and 23) to get to the mounting bolt item 21. You will have to use a socket and an extension to remove the agitator mouting bolt. After removing the mounting bolt you should be able to lift the agitator to free the shoe lace. Re-assemble in reverse order. Mounting bolt... inner cap and washer... then the top cap.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How to change radiator


Radiator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Cirrus, Sebring Convertible, Stratus and Breeze CAUTION
Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system. NOTE: The radiator uses plastic tanks. Plastic tanks, while stronger than brass, are subject to damage by impact, such as slipped wrenches. Use care when working around these radiators.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air inlet resonator.
  3. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain engine coolant. NOTE: To open the drain plug on models equipped with a 2.5L engine, use a 3⁄8 inch drive extension 3 inches (7.6cm) long and a 19mm socket with universal joint. The drain plug can also be accessed by removing the right front fog light in the front lower bumper fascia.
  4. Remove the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Remove the push-in mounting fasteners securing the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator support crossmember.
    2. Remove the mounting bolts securing the support braces to the bottom of the crossmember.
    3. Remove the bolts securing the crossmember to the radiator closure panel.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts attaching the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Remove the crossmember from the vehicle. Fig. 2: Using a small flat bladed tool, pry up the center portion of the plastic front grille/fascia retainers, then pull them out 90903p02.jpg
      Fig. 3: To aid in a straight reassembly, matchmark the washer screws to the radiator crossmember using a marker 90903p03.jpg

      Fig. 5: Remove the mounting bolts for the hood lock latch mechanism 90903p01.jpg
      Fig. 6: Remove the radiator support crossmember 90903p08.jpg
      NOTE: The following step and associated photos describe original type hose clamps. Some vehicles may instead have a worm gear type clamp, which can be loosened with a screwdriver.

  5. Using pliers, compress the tabs on each hose clamp, then slide the clamp a few inches away from the hose end. Carefully twist and pull the hoses from the radiator.
  6. Disconnect the engine block heater wire, if equipped.
  7. Disconnect and plug the transaxle cooler lines, if equipped.
  8. Remove screw attaching support bracket for external transaxle cooler lines to the left side of the radiator, if equipped. Fig. 7: Relieve the tension from the hose clamp, then disconnect the upper coolant hose at the radiator 90903p09.jpg

    Fig. 9: Remove the mounting fasteners that retain the fluid and refrigerant line support brackets to each side of the radiator/condenser assembly 90903p05.jpg
    Fig. 10: Disengaging the cooling fan electrical connector 90903p18.jpg

  9. Remove the screw attaching the support bracket for air conditioning lines from the right side of the radiator. Remove the support bracket.
  10. Unplug the cooling fan wiring.
  11. Remove the air conditioning condenser mounting screws. Use care when working around the air conditioning condenser. Avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Care should be taken not to damage the radiator or condenser cooling fins or water tubes during removal. It is not necessary to discharge the air conditioning system to remove the radiator. Fig. 11: Access to the lower radiator cooling hose (1) and lower left side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the left fog light 90903p12.jpg
    Fig. 12: Access to the lower transmission fluid cooler line (1) and lower right side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the right fog light 90903p13.jpg
    Fig. 13: Remove the A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners 90903p16.jpg
    Fig. 14: Unclip the A/C line from the cooling fan module 90903p15.jpg

    3. Install and tighten the crossmember-to-radiator closure panel mounting bolts.
    4. Install and tighten the mounting bolts that secure the support braces to bottom of the radiator crossmember.
    5. Install the push-in mounting fasteners holding the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator crossmember.
  20. Connect the engine block heater, if equipped.
  21. Install the air inlet resonator.
  22. Fill the cooling system with the correct type and amount of engine coolant.
  23. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to idle until it reaches full operating temperature. Check the cooling system for correct fluid level and top off if necessary.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE i GET GET INSTRUCTIONS ON REPLACEING THE PRESSURE SWITCH ON MY KENMORE WASHER


If this is a FRONT LOADER, just follow these simple steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

3. The pressure switch is located on the right hand side rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Disconnect the connector plug and air hose.

4. Remove the mounting screw (if equipped). Some of this switches simply clip in place.

If this is a TOP LOADER, the pressure switch will be located inside the operator console behind the load level selector knob. Some of these consoles have a removeable back, others you have to lift up for access.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer


The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.
