Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Elite Washer 11042832201 - need help with baffle replacement

A:

Thank you for your question. I have checked the model number you have submitted. The part number for the new baffles is 285976. I have provided you with an image of what you should have gotten. The baffles should have come with three screws to secure them. The procedure for replacing the baffles (paddles) in this type of washer is shown in the image below. If your model does not have the screws yet you can hit the baffle back with the palm of your hand to remove it. Then secure the new baffle with the screws provided.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Shane, I will be happy to help you. To install the screw you will need to remove the top of the washer. Then remove the black hose on the top of the drum.( The third image above shows the hose removed. ) Then turn the drum until you see the screw hole through the opening in the tub. Now apply a small amount of silicone grease to the head of the screw. This will help the screw stay on the screwdriver when you insert it into the hole. Once you have the screw into the hole tighten the screw. I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details and a model number. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Q:

Clamp removal process or tool for Front load Kenmore Elite Model #11042832201 11042832201 Kenmore Automatic washer horizontal axis

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added an image below taken from the manual. They say to lift the clamps off but I believe they you have to place pair of needle noses in one of the holes and then pry against the side of the clamp to pop it up and off. Another words; insert one tip of the needle noses in the hole and then pry the handle over towards the clamp and it should pop loose.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

Washing cycle takes too long to complete and machine leaks water on the floor during cycle. Why is that happening?

A:

Hi Katrina,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

For the leaking issue, you could be seeing water leaking from the dispenser. If this type of washer is leaking from under the cabinet, then you could have a problem with hoses or the door boot seal. Open the door and check to see if the door boot is loose or torn. You could have a leaking drain pump or drain hose. If you unplug the washer and remove the bottom front service panel, you can check for the source of a leak. To remove the bottom front panel on most HE washers (with the unit unplugged), you can remove the screws at the very bottom of the panel and then pull the panel out and off of the washer. You will need to examine the drain pump, hoses, and tub for signs of a leak.

As far as the unit taking too long to complete cycles, this washer has a test routine you can run that will help in the diagnosis of any problems the control detects. If the control detects an issue it should give you an error code. I am including this information in a set of images below.

Please perform the diagnostic tests detailed here and report back with your findings. Be sure to record any failures and when they occur along with any error codes that are displayed. I am looking forward to assisting you again in the near future.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
