You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.


WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic precautions, including the following:

  • Read all instructions before using the washer.
  • Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable, or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
  • Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable, or explosive substances to the wash water.
    These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
  • Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS iS EXPLOSIVE.
    If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the washing machine, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
  • Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the washer is used near children.
  • Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the door or lid.
  • Do not reach into the washer if the drum, tub, or agitator is moving.
  • Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
  • Do not tamper with controls.
  • Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in this manual or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.
  • See “Electrical Requirements” for grounding instructions.


For these suggested full-sized loads, set the LOAD SIZE selector to the highest load size setting.


Starting your Waher

Fire Hazard

  • Never place items in the washer that are dampened with gasoline or other flammable fluids,
  • No washer can completely remove oil.
  • Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of oil on it (including cooking oils).
  • Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.

Electrical Shock Hazard

  • Plug into a grounded 3-prong outlet.
  • Do not remove the ground prong.
  • Do not use an adapter.
  • Do not use an extension cord.
  • Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
  1. Measure detergent and pour it into the washer. If desired, add powdered or liquid color-safe bleach. Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.
    1. Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and small items. Items should move easily through the wash water. Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
  2. (OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Chlorine Bleach.
    NOTE: Follow the manufacturer’s directions for safe use. Undiluted bleach will damage any fabric it touches. The damage appears as rips, holes, tears, or color loss and may not show up until several items of washing later. To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket. Always measure liquid chlorine bleach. Do not guess. Never use more than the manufacturer’s recommended amount for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
    Style 1: With Chlorine Bleach Dispenser (on some models) Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine bleach dispenser. Bleach is immediately fed into the washer and is diluted automatically during the wash part of the cycle.Kenmore 110.25852400 Washing Machine fig- (1)
    Style 2: Without Chlorine Bleach Dispenser (on some models)


    1. Let the washer fill and begin agitating the load.
    2. Add bleach 5 minutes into the wash cycle for the best cleaning and so that bleach can be removed in the rinse cycle. Pour bleach around the agitator, not directly onto the load.
  3. (OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Fabric Softener.
    NOTE: Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes. Undiluted fabric softener can stain fabrics. Always dilute fabric softener with warm water. Too much fabric softener can make some items (diapers and towels) nonabsorbent. If this happens, do not use it every load, or use less of it in each load.
    Style 1: With Liquid Fabric Softener Dispenser (on some models)


    1. Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the dispenser. Softener is added automatically during the rinse portion of the cycle. Dilute liquid fabric softener by filling the dispenser with warm water until liquid reaches the crossbar in the dispenser opening.Kenmore 110.25852400 Washing Machine fig- (2)
      Style 2: Without Liquid Fabric Softener Dispenser (on some models)


      1. In the final rinse ONLY, add fabric softener that has been diluted with 1/2 to 1 cup (125 to 250 mL) warm water.
  4. Close the washer lid.
    Turn the LOAD SIZE selector to the correct setting for your wash load and the type of fabric being washed. You may change the load size selection after the washer has started filling by turning the selector to a different setting. Set the TEMPERATURE selector to the correct setting for the type of fabric and soil being washed. Use the warmest wash water safe for fabric. Follow garment label instructions.
    NOTE: In wash water temperatures colder than 70°F (21°C), detergents do not dissolve well. Soils can be difficult to remove. Some fabrics can retain wear wrinkles and have increased pilling (the formation of small lint-like balls on the surface of garments).
  5. (OPTIONAL) EXTRA RINSE selector (on some models). For an additional rinse and spin at the end of a wash cycle, set the EXTRA RINSE selector to ON. On some models, the EXTRA RINSE feature is part of the cycle.
  6. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to the wash cycle you want. Reduce the wash time when using a small load size setting. Pull out the Cycle Control knob to start the washer.Kenmore 110.25852400 Washing Machine fig- (3)

To stop or restart your washer:

  • To stop the washer at any time, push the Cycle Control knob.
  • To restart the washer, close the lid (if open) and pull out the Cycle Control knob.


Use a serf, damp cloth, or sponge to wipe up any spills such as detergent or bleach from the outside of your washer. Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of chlorine bleach and 2 cups (500 mL) of detergent. Pour this mixture into your washer and run it through a complete cycle using Hot water. Repeat this process if necessary. Remove any hard water deposits using only cleaners labeled as washer safe.

Cleaning the liquid fabric softener dispenser (on some models):

  1. Style 1: With blue lock ring
    1. Pullthebluelockringup, thenremovethedispenserfromthe agitator by pulling up. Flush the dispenser with warm water.
    2. To reinstall, be sure the blue lock ring is pulled up. Starting at an angle, push the bottom of the dispenser down on the agitator top. When the dispenser is seated on the agitator, push the blue lock ring down until it snaps into place. It must fit tightly.
  2. Style 2: Without blue lock ring
    1. Hold the top agitator section with one hand. Using the other hand, rotate the dispenser clockwise until it stops (approximately 1 in. [2.54 cm]). To remove, lift the dispenser straight up. Using a rocking motion, separate the top and base of the dispenser. Wash three parts (the base, the cone-shaped cup, and the top) with mild detergent and warm water.
    2. Making sure the pointed end of the cone-shaped cup is pointed toward the base, assemble the three parts by pressing the top and bottom sections together. If the seal came off while removing the dispenser from the agitator, install the seal as shown belowKenmore 110.25852400 Washing Machine fig- (4)
    3. Reinstall the dispenser by aligning the two locking tabs on the base of the dispenser with the two small slots on the top of the agitator. Push the dispenser down until you hear it snap into place. If you cannot get the locking tabs to snap into place, check the seal. It must be positioned as shown in Step 2.Kenmore 110.25852400 Washing Machine fig- (5)
      IMPORTANT: Some models are equipped with a liquid fabric softener dispenser. To avoid damage to the washer or clothing do not wash clothes with the liquid fabric softener dispenser removed or add detergent or bleach to this dispenser; it is for liquid fabric softener only.

Water Inlet Hoses

Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk of hose failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts, wear, or leaks are found.

When replacing your inlet hoses, mark the date of replacement on the label with a permanent marker.

Moving and Storage

Because some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can damage your washer. If storing or moving your washer during freezing weather, winterize it.

Winterizing your washer

  1. Shut off both water faucets. Disconnect and drain water inlet hoses. Pour 1 qt (1 L) of R.V.-type antifreeze into the basket.
  2. Run the washer on a drain and spin setting for about 30 seconds to mix the antifreeze and water.
  3. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power.

To use the washer again

  1. Flush water pipes and hoses. Reconnect water inlet hoses. Turn on both water faucets.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Run the washer through a complete cycle with 1 cup (250 mL) of detergent to clean out antifreeze.

Storage, non-use or vacation care

Operate your washer only when you are at home. If you will be on vacation or not using your washer for an extended period of time, you should:

  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power.
  2. Turn off the water supply to the washer. This helps avoid accidental flooding (due to a water pressure surge) while you are away.


First, try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid the cost of a service call.


  • Is the load balanced and the washer level? The wash load should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the Installation Instructions.
  • Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
  • Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or is the upper part of the agitator clicking during wash? These are normal washer noises.


  • Check the following:
  • Are the fill hoses tight?
  • Are the fill hose washers properly seated?
  • Is the drain hose clamp properly installed? See the
  • Installation instructions.
  • Is the sink or drain clogged? Sink and standpipe must be able to handle 17 gaL (64 L) of water per minute.
  • Is water deflecting off the tub ring or the load? Center the tub before starting the washer. The wash load should be balanced and not overloaded. The fill or spray rinses can deflect off the load. The washer must be level The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the Installation instructions.
  • Check household plumbing for leaks.

The Kenmore washer won’t drain or spin

  • the drain hose clogged, or is the end of the drain hose more than 96 in. (244 cm) above the floor? See the
  • Installation Instructions for proper installation of the drain hose.
  • Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
  • The washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
  • Is there excessive sudsing? Always measure detergent.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s directions. If you have very soft water, you might need to use less detergent.

The washer continues to fill or drain, the cycle seems stuck

  • Is the top of the drain hose lower than the water level in the washer? The top of the hose must be higher than the water level in the washer for proper operation. See the Installation Instructions.
  • Does the drain hose fit too tightly in the standpipe, or is it taped to the standpipe? The drain hose should be loose yet fit securely. Do not seal the drain hose with tape. The hose needs an air gap. See the Installation Instructions.

The wash/Rinse temperature is not what I selected

  • Are the hot and cold water inlet hoses reversed? See the
  • Installation Instructions for more information. As your frequency of loads washed increases, the water temperature • may decrease for hot and warm temperatures. This is normal.
  • Did you select a Warm/Warm temperature setting? On models without AUTO TEMPERATURE CONTROL (ATC) that do have a Warm/Warm temperature selection, the warm wash will be followed by an energy-saving cold rinse followed by warm spray rinses. This saves energy while providing the same rinse performance.
