Kenmore washing machine repair issues we can fix
The experts at Sears Home Services can perform Kenmore washing machine repairs whether your problem is big or small.
A service call involves diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and making repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your stacked laundry unit's life.
Washing machine shaking or vibrating
Excessive shaking or vibrating could indicate several problems, including something as minor as a bulky clothing item sticking to one side of the tub wall or adjusting the feet to level the machine.
There could also be more significant issues with your Kenmore stacked laundry unit that require a repair technician, such as worn or failed shock absorbers or drive parts or tub bearings that are water damaged from a broken seal.
Washing machine leaking water
If water is pooled at the front or back of your Kenmore washer, the hot and cold water supply lines and the drain line could be poorly connected, blocked, or need replacement.
If it's a front-loading washer, the door seal might have failed. A clogged water pump filter can cause leakage, or the water pump itself could have failing seals and need to be replaced.
If your Kenmore washer won't drain, it could be as minor as a kinked or clogged drain hose. But more serious problems could be at hand, including a faulty lid switch, water level control, drain pump, or drive belt.
Washing machine not spinning
When a Kenmore washer won't spin, the problem could be simple such as an overloaded drum or an improper load balance. Poor draining (see previous) can also prevent the spin cycle from initiating.
The washer could also have failed parts, such as the lid switch, a failed motor or spin solenoid, or a frayed or broken belt.
Washing machine not filling with water
If your inlet lines are receiving water and have not become kinked, there could be a clogged inlet screen on one of the hoses. Barring those problems, your Kenmore washer could be in need of a new inlet valve, lid switch, pressure switch, temperature selector, or even an electronic control board.
Scheduling regular appliance service ensures your Kenmore stacked laundry unit will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the stacked laundry unit Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect both appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning internal components.

Sears Home Services stocks or has quick access to replacement parts for many brands.
The most common dryer replacement parts are the heating element, thermal fuse, thermostat, and door switch, and Sears Home Services stocks replacement parts for many models. If your dryer is still under warranty, follow the requirements in the agreement.
How do you troubleshoot a Kenmore stacked laundry unit?
While you might use the owner's manual to troubleshoot some basic problems with your Kenmore stacked laundry unit, it's often best to contact a certified Sears Home Service repair technician to diagnose the problem. If you're unsure whether you can solve the problem on your own, call Sears Home Service for expert service.
What is the best way to prevent expensive Kenmore dryer repairs?
The most important things to do on a regular basis to prevent part failures and extend the life of your Kenmore dryer are to clean the lint filter after each use and intermittently clean the vents at the back of the machine and the outlet from the home.
Allowing lint to build up can make your dryer overheat and cause parts to fail. Annual maintenance by an appliance repair company to clean the machine and check for other problems can also prevent part failures and extend the life of your dryer.
How long does it take to repair a Kenmore stacked laundry unit?
When you request service, Sears Home Service can promptly schedule an appointment online or over the phone, often for same-day or next-day service in many areas. One of our stacked laundry unit repair technicians will come to your home, quickly diagnose the problem, and efficiently execute the repair.
