Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer
I have a kenmore 44102 front loader.....recently i have noticed that there are no suds when the washer is running.......the appliance man came today, and told me that it's because i don't use an "he" detergent....I told him that i've been using the same detergent for 5 years now and never had a problem until now.....well, he charged me $39 and left.....i went out and bought some "he" detergent...and it didn't make any difference...I still can't see suds...plus my clothes smell dirty when the cycle is complete..........can you tell me what's happening please?
Nancy this is a hard one. The first thing I would do is check how hard your water is. The harder the incoming water, the less suds. I believe your model starts with a 417. front loader and I assume that the detergent is being dissolved in the disp. tray. On this model, most of the water will be under the basket while agitating. Now, your drain from the tub has a filter and if it full of lint and debris, it could be restricting the drain, leaving dirty water in the tub. You would have to remove the lower panel and check the tub filter. This is located in the tubing coming down from the tub going to the trap and pump. I will attach a photo for you. You can also run the washer empty with hot water. Add 2 cups of bleach. After it starts agitating, stop it and let it sit for 2 hours. Then resume the wash and let it finish. See if the dirty smell goes away. Catriver..post back
