James Conley answers:

Hey, Lawrence h:

This is Mike with The Home Depot in California; I visited the Maytag appliance site,
and reviewed the owner’s manual for your washer. There is not a specific procedure listed to check out your problem. Try calling their customer assistance number 1-800-688-9900. A service tech may be able to help you resolve the problem. If not, then you will have to call an appliance repair company. I have included below, a link to a site for appliance repair information. This may be of help to you.

Sandra asks…

how to fix a kenmore washer agitator model 110.28912790?

James Conley answers:

If you look in your phone book under “appliance parts,” there may be a store such as API near you. They will most likely have a general repair manual for Kenmore. It won’t be for one specific model, but you will find that many models are basically constructed the same. Absent that, you could pick up the manual for another brand such as Maytag, or go to the library and find a general fix-it book that covers agitator washing machines in general.

If there’s a major leak, like from a tub seal, it may not be worth fixing. If it’s something like a broken control board or solenoid, once you isolate the troublemaker, you can go back to the appliance store to see how much it costs.

Another tip is, when you into an appliance parts store, sometimes you can describe the symptom to the person behind the counter, and they’ll know what is wrong, as may models have failure syndromes and all fail the same way. “Magic Chef gas dryer? I bet the drum’s not spinning, but you hear a motor sound? Yup, belt – that always breaks on those. I’ll get the part.”

William asks…

Where the heck is the thermostat on this dryer?

I’ve had my electric dryer for about 18months. Recently, it began requiring 3 or 4 cycles per load. Even though I clean the lint trap after every load, I took off the flex duct on the back, cleaned out a clog, and replaced with a new flex duct appropriate for my dryer. Now, it does not dry at all. It gets extremely hot inside and out. The back of the appliance becomes so hot, it nearly burns to the touch. The clothes inside are not the least bit drier than when they came out of the washing machine. In fact, moisture collects in the bottom of the drum.

Today, I checked the duct and vent again, just to be sure, and there is no lint collected there. I have been told to check the thermostat; however I don’t know where that is located. My manual doesn’t tell me either. Anybody got some helpful advice?

Here is a link to a website I use often for appliance repair. I put in your model number so the page this will take you to will be for your dryer. On the different parts you’ll see there are related repair videos that you can watch that will help you trouble shoot. I think you’ll find this site to be very helpful. You can also order your repair parts here and I’ve done that in the past. They are fast getting the parts to you and the prices are very good too.
