Confirm that the power cord of the Kenmore Series 90 washer is connected securely to the outlet, and ensure that no other high-powered appliances are sharing the same power source. The washer should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet as extension cords may not provide a sufficient power supply. If the washer is making thumping noises, stopping abruptly or shaking excessively during a wash cycle, adjust the load so that the laundry is spread evenly in the barrel.

If the washer is not cleaning the laundry properly, rinse off the detergent dispenser inside the washer drum to prevent soap residue on clean loads. If using powdered detergent, consider switching to liquid detergent for more effective cleaning. Ensure proper operation of the machine by setting the temperature and water level using the display panel on the washer door, and turn the dial on the right to choose the appropriate wash cycle. To begin, pull the knob outwards. If these troubleshooting steps do not solve the issue, always contact a qualified technician before working on the inside of the machine.
