Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Clean LED Light does not come on

I have a Kenmore HE3 (about 6 1/2 years). Initially there have been a few problems but all were resolved under warranty and it has been running fine since. In the past month, the "Clean" signal light has not been coming on. It seems that the clothes are getting clean. the machine fills, drains, and spins fine. The clothes do not have a residue or smell to them and I have been running the 2nd rinse cycle just in case. Is there anyway to check if its just the light, or if the lack of signal is a bigger problem?

Faulty Reading? Brake Fluid Level, ABS and tracking system warning light


If your hub (wheel bearing) is starting to go bad, the sensor can fault as well for the ABS (stabilitrack, etc) as it is all inside the hub assembly. Whatever the issue, once it is resolved, the light will go out. A scan should tell you which wheel is throwing you the code.
The instrument cluster can be taken out pretty easily (2 trim screws and 4 on cluster itself I think) and the bulbs are easy to put out and replace. My cluster was replaced under warranty for 1 burnt out bulb and got a reman that crapped out after a year now out of warranty.

Hi...I just purchased a new kenmore elite and it is not freezing...please help


Good day,
I don't quite get your question. If it's brand new (under one year old) and you have allowed it to run for 24 hours and it refuses to freeze, then it is an issue Sears would have to resolve.
Everything on the machine has at least a one year warranty.
Just call them for a warranty call and leave it on and running, so they can see the problem.

Chest Freezer MCCF7WBX.Magic Chef.. Worked fine for a 1.5 years. Compressor turned off & on to cool unit when needed. The way it should. Now it continuously runs. Unfortunately the warranty is out....


Good day,
Could be a tstat, but the machine should be running extremely cold.
Confused as to the age. You said it was 1 1/2 years old. If that is the case. the compressor,and all connecting tubing are under a 5 year factory warrant.
You could replace the tstat, and if within a few days the problem isn't solved, then the rest of the serious problems are covered by factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for factory warranty service.

Kenmore Elite he5t sounds like a jet engine getting ready for takeoff during the spin cycle. It is extremely loud. Not sure why it all of a sudden started doing this.


Ahh yes, hopefully it's less than a year old. This is likely the main bearing located within the plastic tub. If it has sounded like this for quite some time, you will need a few new parts. The plastic tub (or "tub kit") and the stainless steel drum (which includes the shaft that the bearing rotates on). When did you buy it? If its under a year old, labor will be warrantied with the parts, but the parts themselves should be under warranty as they have a 10 and 25 (or lifetime) year warranty each.
Good luck! We just had this fixed, but now have a new problem. the front button panel will not light up. :(

Kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch


If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.

A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.

Will run but won't take moisture out of the air


Fedders, the maker of the maytag dehumidifier, went bankrupt and they are not honoring the warranties. call this number and if it is still under warranty, they will send you a prorated check for the remainder of your warranty. 1-866-629-8241. we had two months to go on our warranty and they gave us $14 and change.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher that will not pump water through the spray arms. It fills ok and drains fine but wont go into the wash cycle? Any idea of possible problems


Look inside of the dishwasher to be sure that the tubes leading to the spray arms are not disconnected. If those tubes are in place, then the problem is with the main motor/pump in the base of the unit. That Kenmore part is about $150.00 plus labor. That being said, it may be time to consider a new dishwasher UNLESS your dishwasher is less than five years old because there is a five year warranty on the motor/pump. If it is under warranty, call sears repair and they should repair it at no cost to you.

Refrigertor cycle rapidly


2109, start with the overload and relay on the compressor, see if it's contained in a white box. Take it off and shake it, see if it rattles. If so, that's probably the problem. If you find the overload and relay good, the compressor may be bad, the good news is that is covered by warranty for 5 years, parts and labor. The overload and relay will not be covered under warranty, could be expensive if an outside service does the job. Part number for the relay/overload, 4387938. Catriver..post back.
