Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Catalyst Mod. 22052

Moved washer out of storage, laid it on back in truck, and oil leaked from somwhere.  Not gallons, but maybe two tablespoons worth or more.  Plugged washer in, no power evidenced in unit.  Totally no response or evidence that power is connected.  Is there some sort of shutoff switch or sensor I should be aware of?

Oil is no problem. The door switch/interlock is faulty. Replace door interlock. Try closing the door firmly with an extra little shove on the door handle. Sometimes this works.

I have a 93 Plymouth voyager and it's always had an oil leak but I recently moved now I'm putting a gallon of oil a day in it. Sometimes it blows the oil cap off. What do I do?


If it blows the oil cap off the pcv system isn't working/plugged. If it is a 3lt 6 cyl, chances are the cam and crank seals are leaking along with cam plugs on thh side of the cyl heads

I replaced the tub/motor coupling on my Kenmore model # 110.26912690 washer. I laid the machine on its back, while waiting for the parts, which came 3 days later. I noticed some thick oil had leaked...


Your oil is more than likely from the washer's "transmission". like your car, the washer employs a similar set up in order to change from "agitate' to "spin", etc. the oil is necessary to the operation, and the extended time (3days) on its side allowed some to leak out. Unfortunately, the only sure-fire way to tell if you still have enough oil will be to have a repair tech look it over and add if necessary. for future reference, if you ever think you need to tip your unit over, you'll have to be very quick about it, and if it needs parts, stand it back upright while you wait.

Leaking water. The hose is draining correctly. Not plugged up


you may either have a leaking drain hose or bad water pump. these washers are famous for drain pumps leaking. this is caused by using to much soap. 2 tablespoons per load.

Hi,
Its possible that your trans. is going to need replaced. Maybe have some bad seals on the trans. As far as the water leak goes. Could be a tub seal, maybe some worn inlet hoses, maybe a leaky inlet valve.

We hope this gives you a start on your appliance repair. Anymore questions please feel free to reply back.
