Question and Answers


Sears Kenmore Model 79648842800 Front Loading Washer


Hi James,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I understand your concern with having a rust issue with a machine that is less than 3 years old.

I have done some research and was unable to find this as a common complaint with this model. Since you had a repair person out while this was in warranty and he did not find an issue I do not anticipate that it will be covered under the 1 year warranty. If you would like, you can contact Customer Solutions at 1-800-479-5899. It is possible that they may be able to assist you with an exceptional coverage.

I can however help you save money by replacing the part yourself. Replacing the top on this washer is a fairly simple repair, and the part itself only costs about $74.00. I am including the instructions for top removal in the images below.

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

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

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
