Hello Mitch,

 

I'm sorry to see that you are having difficulties with your snow thrower shearing the driven sprocket bolt and I would like to assist you.  There are a couple of things that you will want to look at within the drivetrain to be certain that there is not an underlying issue causing this.  Rotate the drivetrain by hand to be certain that there is not any excessive jerkiness that could be transmitted to the final drive sprocket, this would cause excessive shear forces to be placed on the bolt from both directions.  If the drivetrain appears to be OK, the bolt itself should be considered.  There are really two camps on this issue between a standard bolt and a grade 8 for shear purposes.  Clearly, the grade 8 is stronger and has a much higher shear strength, but it is considered by many to be brittle.  I am not going to debate which one is better nor the validity of the brittleness in this application, but I will say that if any bolt is installed and is torqued down in a shear situation like this one, there are now multiple forces working against it.  It is being stretched and sheared at the same time and this will cause it to break more easily.  I suggest replacing the bolt with a standard one that the rest of the drivetrain is designed to handle and do not snug it down, use a locking nut and leave the bolt without any, or at least minimal, tension on it. 

 

Many times, debris that the snow thrower runs into causes issues like this.  If there are seams in the pavement or ice that the snow thrower is coming in contact with, it can jar the drivetrain and shear the bolt.  Shearing of the bolt is better than damage to other parts of the drivetrain, it is the engineered weak link and that is why I recommend using a standard bolt versus the grade 8 to prevent damage to other components. 

 

These are the most common items to look at, please let me know if you would like any further assistance.

My sprocket bolt broke, but the replacement I got from Sears parts has a longer shoulder, 1 1/4" vs 3/4" orginal and shorter thresds. I was concerned the replacement would not act as a shear bolt and break as designed or was this to make it less prone to bkeakage?

Based on that model number, the part W10253483 is the correct part for the replacement door lock assembly. I see that the replacement part looks different than the original door lock assembly. I am not aware of any problems with the wire harness connection plugs fitting the new part. The wire harness should plug in properly and the new door lock assembly should fit properly on the front washer panel. Have you tried plugging the wire harness into that new part? If the wire harness does not fit, I recommend that you reply with some photos that show the plugs and the problem that you are having. We may be able to help you once we receive additional information.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. This fault code generally implies a faulty door lock assembly however it could also be caused by a loose wiring connection or a faulty control board.

The "F26" fault code implies the door has not been opened for 3 consecutive cycles or the door switch is open while the door is locked for more than 5 seconds.

Some possible causes:

Door not opened during 3 consecutive cycles.

  1. Open and close the door.
  2. Verify CCU operating by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

Door switch open while door is locked.

  1. Push the door and check if it completely closed.
  2. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
  3. Check door switch contacts.
  4. The resistance of both door coils (between pin 1 and 3) should be approximately 320 ohms of resistance.

Diagnostic test cycle:

Execute this procedure with an empty drum. All of the steps below must be done in sequence in order to reach the Diagnostic test. This executes the automatic test only.

  1. Close the door.
  2. Push power.
  3. Select the "Drain and Spin" program.
  4. Deselect the rinse option (for Kenmore only).
  5. Select "No spin".
  6. Push Prewash option within 5 sec
  7. The automated test program is started (not possible to skip steps).
  8. To cancel the test program press the "Stop" button.

I highly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I tried the instructions above on my model 110.47081600 and nothing happens. I called SearsPartsDirect, the agent told me the F26 error code indicates that the hinge and latch may be causing the error and recommended replacing both. Part W10253483 and part 8183202. Can you advise if there is a video on how to disassemble and replace these parts? Thank you.

Kimberly: I suggest replacing the door lock assembly part #8540772 unless the door hinges are sloppy loose. This fault code (F/26) generally implies a faulty door lock assembly however it could also be caused by a loose wiring connection or a faulty control board. The "F26" fault code implies the door has not been opened for 3 consecutive cycles or the door switch is open while the door is locked for more than 5 seconds. We do not have a video with the instructions but I will add an image below with the procedure for accessing and replacing the door lock assembly. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.
