Question about Kenmore 4292x Front Load Washer
Hi, I want to soak a load of towels in Borax before I wash them. Do you know which of these settings I would use?
Thanks so much for your help!
SOURCE: washing machine won't spin
If it fill and motor runs but will not agitate it likely is the
coupler. If you have the cabinet off and see the motor here is what you
there are 2 metal straps that attach the motor to the transmission. take the screws out that hold the straps on and pop the straps out of their slots. the motor will then come off and the coupler is between the motor and transmission. One section goes on motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft with rubber bushing in between.
Coupler part number is 285753A

I'm unsure how the normal operation was restored. I attempted to correct it by setting the machine to SOAK+PREWASH overnight to assure that the SOAK timer had run out. Then My wife (who never uses SOAK or PREWASH options) made a clockwise trip around the TIMER control stopping at each of the "detents" (I did not witness this) one of the spin entry points worked to empty the washwater and the NORMAL wash cycle resumed normal function.
I'm not confident that my description above contains all the essential information needed to correct this problem and am disappointed that
I cannot find SUPPORTING LITERATURE that shows how to use these alternate cycles and combinations without another hang-up like these two that I have experienced. That which is supplied with the washer is pathetically inadequate and the Sears site has little else to offer. Document #8566913 was not delivered with the machine but I did find it somewhare on the INTERNET printed parts of it for additional help. *ALERT* #1: Just now I discovered that it does cover the Model series 110.2692* of which my machine is part ... and it ALONE warns of the 20 minute mandatory wait when two controls are set to obtain SOAK+PREWASH function.
*ALERT* #2: Last nite I discovered that the lid switch makes NO SOUND when the lid is lowered normally but can be made to click by pressing on the left rear of the lid. Feeling under the lid, I found no switchpad (?) on the operating arm as shown in diagrams found elsewhere.
FINAL QUESTIONS: 1) could failure to FULLY operate the lid switch allow partial function of this machine, e.g. to fill, agitate, rinse and spin normally but not to soak or prewash? 2) can anyone direct me to a place where I can obtain breakdown diagrams repair directions for this machine?

you will need to open the machine (front panel - most times its 2 screws on the bottom)
and turn the machine on & look with a flash light where the water come from...is it busted pip , or pump is bad...

A couple of things come to mind,if the micro-processor senses the load is out of balance enough, it will control the RPMs(reveloutions per minute) or slow it down in order to avoid damage to the suspension system, so readjusting the spin speed manuallly probably would help. Although that machine should be able to handle 9 large towels easily! Next thing, have you cleaned out the trap inside the lower access panel, if it is restricted you will have draining problems. Good luck !

could have a cracked water pump or the pipe that the drain line drains into is backing up.one other thing it could be is bad tub seals,the water will leak from the bottom middle of the tub but most likely it will be the pump,this is an easy fix,pop off the two clamps that hold the pump on and with a pair of plyers remove the two clamps on the hoses,make sure you put down a couple of bath towels to catch water that's still in the hoses,let me know how you make out,next time send model number,one of the most common pumps for your machine is 3363394 but check it with the part number on the old pump and give the parts store the correct model number.good luck
