Question about Kenmore 43042 Front Load Washer
We just read the advice for our front loading Kenmore and we found a ton of stuff including a sock in the black acordian like area stated in the message. It was difficult getting it all back together. But mission accomplished. We just loaded for a test run and all is working fine except it immediately blew the cicuit now which we can reset rigth at the outlet. It wont stop doing this and we cant move forward. Any help would be appreciated.
Is it blowing the circuit immediately or after a while? try taking the front toe panel off if it runs with it off the its most likely the outlet when u take the toe panel off it opens the ground switch this will let u know if u have a bad ground

Tips for a great answer:
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
