Sure thing, under the door is a kick panel, held on by three hex screws,standard uses 1/4 inch and torx uses a 9/32 socket. A slight down tug will loosen the panel and behind that you will see the pump at right front. Just to the left is a round soda can shaped housing with a large turn screw lid attached to the pump. Grab a bucket and some towels, unscrew the lid like a jar of peanut butter slowly to let the water into the bucket. This may require two trips and some getting wert. The trap is attached and easy to clean. Next reach behind a gently shake the black boot joining the tub to the pump for coins and lint. The last item is getting a bright light and inspecting the pump through the small hole right side that can be seen once the trap is removed. Check for debris then put a finger in the hole and check the impeller for disconnection from debris/

Kenmore elliet washing machine, front loader


To open the door manually:

UNPLUG the machine...

Remove the toekick panel (way down at the bottom).

Feeling along the inside of the front panel. You should be able to find a tab shaped like a teardrop attached to the door latch unit.

Pull the tab down just a little bit ... gently ... until the door opens (or you hear the latch click - then try to open the door).

Is the machine displaying a code?

Door won't open


the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.

the drain pump on this unit has a clean out. There is probably debris in the pump. remove the lower front cabinets. There are three screws almost at floor level that hold it in place and open the drain pump it has a handle on the drain pump that you can twist to remove.
