Question about Washing Machines
My kenmore elite front load washer (6 yrs old) wont drain and when i put the drain clycle on it starts to click loudly - is there an easy fix?
Yes...sounds like you may have something lodged in the drain pump impeller. The following link explains how to check the drain pump on this washer for obstructions:
It does not take much to damage the drain pump on this washer. If something has been lodged in the pump for any significant period of time, the pump may be damaged and required replacement. The may still run, but may not be pumping water as it should. You may experience an error code as well. On HE3 models, the error code is "F02" or "SUD". On HE5 models, I believe it is an "F21" error. Replacement pumps can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com.
If you find that you need to replace your pump, I have this additonal link, that provides step-by-step instructions:
Please read the note at the bottom of the link, as it IS possible for a pump to still run and not pump water. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
