Washer won't drain

I have a Kenmore front loading washer. I have had it for a little over 2 years now, and it has worked great. Recently, however, the washer won't drain when it fills with water during a load. I am guessing there is a filter that I can try to clean to help, but I have no idea where it would be. I don't see any regular access panels on the thing, and I don't want to start removing screws everywhere looking, I am not that handy to fix it. Any help?

    I have already taken the hose completely off of the back of the washer to make sure it wasn't blocked. When the pump comes on to drain, there is an initial gush of water that lasts for a second or two, and then it reduces to a trickle for about 30 seconds before it stops altogether.

    This site was the bomb!! It walked me through the process. There was a sock in the filter trap!!! Now the washer runs like it did when I first bought it, and it only took about 10-15 minutes to take care of it.


    THANK YOU!!!!

    Is there a drawing of the drain pump anywhere on line. I have emptied trap, tried cleaning impellor (pretty hard to reach in there) and I'm not sure how to go about opening up pump itself.

It may just be that there is a blockage in the outflow pipe, get a bucket ready to catch any excess water and remove the outflow pipe from the sump to check if there is any blockages.

I hope this helps
