Question and Answers

Q:

how do I reset my chimes on my washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the chime is not working at all; it may have been accidentally turned off. The chime has three settings; LOW-HIGH-OFF. The volume is adjusted using the "Add a Garment" button. DO NOT press the button to add garments. When the add a garment light illuminates, press Start/Pause if you need to add a garment.

Pressing the "Add a Garment" should cause the chime to signal with each press of the button. This information is also in your Use and Care Guide. This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Kenmore he washer model 79629002000 makes a whirring noise when spinning and then it slowly stops

A:

Hi Clyde,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Without being there to hear the noise and determine where it is coming from, it is difficult to help you with the diagnosis. I am including a set of images below that will help you with disassembling your washer. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. Try to determine where the noise is coming from. Make sure nothing is near the motor or under the pulsator. Check for something caught in between the tub and the basket.

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 .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your appliance; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Q:

Kenmore Elite Top Load Washer Model#79629002000 does nothing after filling with water.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "OE" will display if the washer is taking too long to drain or not if it's not draining.

  • Is the drain hose pinched or clogged due to freezing temperatures or a piece of clothing?
  • Will the drain pump operate? IF not, it could have faulty drain pump, faulty main control, jammed pump or the BLUE 3-pin connector to the main board may have a bad connection.

You can access the drain pump from the rear of the washer.

  • Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.
  1. Remove the screws that attach the back cover and take it off.
  2. Disconnect the leads and the drain hose from the drain pump.
  3. Remove the pump attachment screws and the lead connector. Take the pump assembly out of the washer and check it to see if is jammed or if the hoses are restricted.

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 .
