Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!

We received the washer and dryer set from my wife's mom who passed last month. She bought these about 6 months ago. The washer was fine a few days ago. Today wife went to wash clothes and noticed it just sat there and hummed. No water. I checked the water hoses and they were fine. Still now water. Unplugged the unit to reset and still... no water. Any ideas or do I call someone? Not sure on warranty or we have no receipts.

I'll bet you have those new "flood safe" fill hoses. Get rid of them. Install normal, ordinary fill hoses and all will be well in the world.

Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....

My kenmore 29822800 won't fill with water, it works on spin and drain

The last time I moved, my washer/dryer combo (Frigidaire) had the same issue for approximately 7 months before finding out all I needed to do was level the washer, and of course, make sure the faucet connected to the washer is turned to on position. Hope this is helpful.

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.

Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

Water drains during wash cycle. I have used this washer for many years without a problem. About two months ago I noticed that the water level in the drum was going down during the wash cycle. Last week I...

Take the drain hose out of the drain pipe and put it into a sink to test the machine

If that works make sure that the drain hose is being allowed to breath (ie let air into the main drain pipe so that the machine does not set up a syphon).

Water not filling on washer

the inlet filter is probably clogged restricted and/or inhibited flow of water into your machine.

Safely moving a neptune f/l washer

Hello,

There should be Bolts that run through the back panel that hold the whole tub in place when you move the machine around. Here is a Repair Manual for your Washer. It should help you out in finding the part numbers and where they go when you get them.

Thanks

Continuously fills with water

I'd suspect that the water level switch was malfunctioning. It's easily checked once the top of the washer has been removed. There is a tube running up to it from the tub. Water going up the tube changes the pressure on that switch and it reacts, opening to shut down the fill valves.

An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Good luck !
