Kenmore_110.92273100 Green Tint in water fresh water clear. would bleach and detergent solidify on botton and create green tint? well water.

Hello
I am repairing the washer for Mr Organus that has a Kenmore_washer #110.92273100

Would something like corroded like parts or a combo
of detergent and bleach cause a residue that puts
green tint into water after a wash? Incoming water does
not make a cotton cloth become light green only after agitation in tub.

We clean washer and weeks later the green tint comes back to a cotton cloth.
The incoming water was taken and the cloth (100% cotton) was not tinted green.

Also at one point months ago the owner took bleach (Americas Choice) and detergent
(Brand: Extra) and put it into tub before adding water and we had rinsed it several times
and the water cleared up. Four months later it came back also the well water is a bit acidic.
Could a part get corroded and make green water in the tub?

Sears model Kenmore (whirlpool) -- Kenmore_110.92273100
bought 2000 used to 2004 not used 2004 to 2010 started back in use 2010 to 2012.
I have the repair manual and parts source from sears

Thanks for your input it is appreciated.

There are some metal parts inside that washer tub that could be corroding due to exposure to the well water. You can pull the components out of that tub using the procedure shown in this repair video:

Washing Machine Drive Tub Seal Replacement

. You can also check for residue inside the tub or on the bottom of the spin basket. If you need to replace some parts, you can order them from this page:

Kenmore Washer 110.92273100 Parts

. Be sure that you

unplug the washer

before accessing and replacing internal components.

A problem with the well water supply could be causing this problem to occur according to your details. I recommend that you have the well water tested. You can visit

Kenmore Water.com

to view solutions for well water problems.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:

Hello Mel260. Here are some troubleshooting tips for that problem: Make sure that the cold water faucet is fully open (you probably already checked that but it is worth mentioning as a basic troubleshooting step). Shut off the cold water faucet and remove the cold water fill hose that is connected to the back of the washer. Place the end of the cold water hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the cold water supply faucet to check for proper water pressure and flow from the end of that fill hose. Note: If you are using FillSafe fill hoses like the one shown in the first image below then the washer will normally not fill properly. I recommend using standard fill hoses. If you find no problems with the water supply, then you can check the inlet water screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or deposits. If that screen is clogged, then I recommend that you replace that water fill valve assembly. You may also need to order that water valve if it is not opening to allow cold water to flow into the washer during the fill process. Note: There is a chance that problem with the wiring or the timer could also prevent the washer from filling. You can view and order parts for your washer on this page:

Washer Repair Parts

. Be sure that you UNPLUG the washer and shut off the water supply before accessing internal components. The second image below shows how to release the cabinet on the type of washer shown above so that you can access the water valve assembly. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

e-analysis: On my Freezer 2539287413, In my Timer 216517400, the compressor-timer terminal(1-4), on the 'points' type terminal leaf's showed burnt/globule, and high R.. due to start-up arcing after defrost cycle .. and may have stuck .. and may-be this is a current surging problem on start-up ...
Have noticed the current rating difference of 15A,1/2hp for the Timer 297318010 china; changed to 10A,1/3hp for the
216744400 mexico, with the same Mfgr symbol/logo on them ???, that Kenmore recommends ....

Hello Nidia. You can shut off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher and remove that dispenser as shown in the image below. You can then rinse the liquid soap out of that compartment and install it back into the dishwasher.

My Maytag Neptune washer was running and started to smoke during the spin cycle. I can smell burning rubber. I have removed the top and the main belt seems to be intact. The smoke seems to be coming directly out of the tub part of the washer. Tub no longer spins. Have looked at diagrams but do not see another belt anywhere. HELP!

For Luke: A broken lid switch in that model would prevent the drive motor from running in the wash and the spin modes. If the motor is running (humming) but the agitator is not moving and the washer drains but the basket does not spin, then you could have a broken motor coupler. Here is a direct link for that part:

Motor Coupler Part 285753A for Kenmore Washer Model 110.28622701

. The images below show how to access the motor coupler in that type of washer. Be sure that you UNPLUG the washer before accessing internal components. If you have a different type of failure or you need more help, reply with additional details.

For Dawn: On that Maytag Neptune washer, you likely have a problem with the tub seal and bearing. I recommend that you have a service technician examine and repair that type of problem. That repair will normally require special tools and expertise that go beyond a do-it-yourself project. You can schedule service through this link:

. If you need more help, let us know.
