Question and Answers

Q:

How to clean filter?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have provided you with the instructions for accessing the drain filter on the washer. Please make sure to unplug the washer. Once the access panel is removed, place a few old towels down to catch the water that will come out. Then slowly loosen the filter cap. As soon as the water is drained, you can remove the cap and filter to clean out the debris. After you have cleaned the filter, reinstall it into the pump and test the operation.

Please feel free to add more details if you run into problems.

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 .

Q:

I have a Kenmore Elite washer 11045088404. How do I unclog the inlet screens at the valve?

A:

Thank you for your question.

Having an error code come up on the display can be a concern.

• You are correct that one of the problems could be clogged screens.

• First REMOVE POWER to the machine.

• Turn the hot and cold water valves off.

• Remove the hoses off the washer inlet valve.

• Once removed examine the screens that are in the valve and clean if dirty.

• You can use a small brush like and old tooth brush to clean the screens.

• Note! Be careful not remove or damage screens as it could cause flooding.

• Once cleaned, re-install the hoses hand tight and then use a pair of pliers to turn ¾ turn until snug.

Be careful not over tighten or get cross threaded.

• Turn the water valves back on fully and check for water leeks.

• If this does not fix the problem, I would suggest you have a service technician service your washer.

The other problems may be internal.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

what tool do I use to take off front panel of kenmore he4t

A:

Thank you for the question.

I should be able to assist you in removing the front panel of the washer. You do not need any kind of special tool to repair this washer. You might need metric nut drivers on some of the screw. I have provided you with the instructions below on how to remove the front panel. the images might be slightly different than yours but the instructions are the same. I recommend wearing a pair of gloves to protect your hands. Some of the parts are not finished and will cut easily.

Please let me know if you run into any problems.
