Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2 He 3 and it is very loud when spinning. It sounds like the drum might be out of place. I went to spin the drum with my hand and it's ok until a certain point and it makes a sound and is difficult to turn. What should I do?

Okay the bad news is most likely the bearings in the back of the front load drum are damaged and there may even be some cracking in the back this is causing it not to spin properly it will not be able to work for much longer and if you would need a major repair to fix many cases it is not worth fixing front loader because the average repair cost is around $400 you might want to get it looked at by an appliance professional but most expensive see the links below for more information Replacing the bearings on Kenmore HE3t front load washer Part 1 By How to...

check to make sure the machine is properly balanced. an off balance machine will vibrate causing that sound.

SOURCE: KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,

Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..

My Kenmore Elite Quiet pak 2 # 11045872402 HE3 washer doesn't go through the complete Cycle it stops when drain and spin,or doesn't Tumble through the cycle? could I have confused it by trying to keep


Spinning is prevented when the cover is open. Possibly a broken "door closed" switch is or its wires are broken. Lift the lid platform and check the switch. May be just debris preventing it from engaging. Remember, the lid and the close switch must be engaged before the control circuit will allow the high speed spin from happening. This is an essential safety feature and should never be circumvented. A high speed drum can literally pull an arm from its socket if caught so make sure it's working properly

No it is very expensive to repair. You have to buy the whole rear portion of the outer drum if it is the bearings. Or a tub spider which holds the inner tub to the spindle that spins it. it is a very labor intensive repair. you would also need the outer tub seal/gasket for reassembly. If you are a skilled mechanic you may be able to repair it cheaper than a new one, but be prepared to spent the better part of you weekend working on it.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4 smartheat quiet pak 9 that has power but will not start.


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum could be broken. I'd check that first.

I think possibly your machine is not on a level surface. Try rocking the machine, if it wobbles, the feet need adjusting to level the machine. It will cause damage in the long run if not levelled.
