Good job - you were lucky. The casing on this one is water-resistant. If water had touched to electronics - bye-bye!

I have alot of particles in the bottom of my washer at the end of the cycle.. if i run another cycle with no clothes they stay in the bottom of the washer..appears to be dirt, leaves..etc


Hello, Suzanne -

So someone, whose clothes are washed in your machine, picks up "crud" on his or her clothes. (My dad used to collect "crud" in his pants cuffs and pants pockets, so my mom would make sure she emptied the pockets and cuffs over a wastebasket before putting his clothes in the washing machine.)

First, make sure pockets, cuffs, and whatever else clothing parts might collect "crud" are emptied over a wastebasket prior to placing in the washing machine.

"Crud" like pet hair or disintegrated facial tissue left in a pocket may still be left over in a washing machine tub after clothes are removed. I use a wet sponge to wipe out the washing machine tub when ever I see left over "crud."

Newer washing machines have lint traps, which are not as easy to access as those on clothes dryers. The washing machine lint trap may need cleaning out.

GREAT ARTICLE! Had an F21 error, I followed the directions... used my shop vac...


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADING washing machines. If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

  1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
  2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
  3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
  4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
  5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
  6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
  7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
  8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
  9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
  10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
  11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
  12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

I had my wedding ring in my pants pocket and it went through the wash. Is there a small-object trap that I can get to? If so, how?Kenmore washing machine model 92284100.


Yes there is a trap filter on all models. Your manual should show where this is.It`s usually at the bottom front of the m/c.

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine


If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

Starts out draining


What you are experiencing is what i have experienced for the past 6 months...do something now before it gets worse.....

I have discovered that there should be a warning with the NEW FRONT LOAD washers, and that is....ALWAYS EMPTY out pockets of clothes. WIth the typical top load machines...its seems that the "stuff" we left in pockets, ended up in the bottom of the disc of the washing machine, and actually became a game with me...how much money could i find after washing my husbands pants!...never able to go much further than that....but with the front load machines....whats left in the pockets, gets "eaten" by the machine , and the rubbery entrance in the front of the machine.....but items never to be seen, until you pay the a repair man to come out and tell you what you shouldn't do!

SO....sounds to me like, your drain hose is getting clogged, what you are experiencing is what i was experiencing for about 1 month before the machine just stopped working altogether! you can take off the front bottom cover (there are prob screws there) and then there should be a hose and sometimes a trap (where, if you are like us,...the repairman found about 5 dolloars worth of coins) that you can empty out...i guess depending on you type of machine....mine was a GE)
