I have an old Kenmore washer/dryer set that I was given:
Washer: model 110.92273100.
Dryer: model 110.96273100.
Because of the way the model number is labeled, it is unclear to me if
the model number is simply "110" or "110" followed by the long number
starting with 9. If it's not a part of the model number, I don't know
what it is (it's not the serial, that is clearly marked elsewhere on
I am looking for manuals for these items. Any ideas on where could I
find them? I tried kenmore.com but haven't been able to come up with
anything... I couldn't even find a section for manuals.
110 is what Sears calls their "Source". Not sure what it means, but I think
it means where they get an item. Sears had Whirlpool make their washers and
dryers for years. Call a Sears service center, they should be able to order
the manuals for you. If not, ask them what the corresponding Whirlpool model
Not clear whether you're seeking owner's manual or repair manual.
If the latter, you can find parts diagrams at www.Sears.com.
Click on parts and put in the whole (110.9++) number
If your not operating on a "need to know" basis, here's how it goes. "110"
is the source (mfg,), in this case Whirlpool. The first and third number
following the source number indicate the year of introduction to line, in
this case '92. The second number following 110 indicates size of washer
(1=small tub, 2=large tub) or in case of dryer, 6=electric and 7=gas. The
fourth number indicates series number, in this case "70" and fifth number
indicates level of features within the series. Sixth number is the color,
1=white with dark console, 2=white on white, 9=black. I'm a little fuzzy on
3 and 4 as they indicated almond or bisque (They changed numbers about 2000
when almond was dropped in favor of Bisque. The last two "0,s" are there to
indicate any middle of year model changes. Sears offers a repair manual
that covers all direct drive washers and also a manual to cover dryers. A
complete parts list can be found by going to Sears.com and clicking on parts
and putting in the whole model number including the 110 and period plus
other numbers. I think the repair manual might be offered as a part..cost
about $10. However, since these are virtually identical to Whirlpool and
since Whirlpool makes almost 60% of all washers/dryers sold in the USA,
generic do it yourself manuals that address washer/dryer repair usually show
repairs on a Whirlpool. You should be able to go to the local library and
save yourself some money.
