Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore stackable washer model #,40412 that is 2 years old.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern with the washer not spinning in the final cycle.

  • With the information you have given us it is kind of a puzzle since you said it will work ok when you have no clothes in the washer.

  • It sounds like it is not completely pumping out during the final rinse and spin cycle.

  • If it still detects water in the tub it will not go into the spin. I am wondering if the pump/drain area has some kind of restriction.

  • You could REMOVE POWER to the machine.

  • Remove the lower access panel and with a catch pan and some towels to catch the water, remove the accordion hose that goes from the pump to the tub to see if it has some debris in it.

If that does not fix the problem, I would have a technician check out the washer.

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

I am sorry that I could not be of more help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

The installer neglected to remove the shipping bolts in our Kenmore 40412 Washer, where are they at?

A:

There should be 4 bolts in the rear of the washer with yellow washers. 3 of the bolts will have a metal p-clamp on them. Remove them all.

The braces you describe underneath the tub need to be removed. The styrofoam block underneath the tub needs to be removed.

Be sure the drain hose has been secured so it can't come up out of the drain.

Q:

Can older dryer model number 417.81142000 be stacked on top of newer washer model 40412?

A:

I am not certain that your older dryer will properly stack on top of your newer washer. I suspect that it will. You can try using the stack kit that should have come with the dryer if you still have it (see image below). If you do not have this kit, you can order a replacement kit from Sears PartsDirect www.searspartsdirect.com . The part number for this kit is 5303937141. This kit is designed to allow you to stack your older dryer on the newer washer. If the cabinets match up and the stacking brackets fit properly, then the dryer can be safely stacked on top of your new washer.

I included the pages from the installation instructions from your dryer that describe the stacking process. Using these instructions, you can check your washer to see if this stack kit will work with the model of washer that you purchased.
