SOURCE: Where is the pump/filter located on my Kenmore Front Loader Washe

It is just behind the lower panel. Remove the 3 screws from the lower panel (the panel just below the door), the screws are on the lip on the bottom of the panel facing the front of the machine. Pull down and toward you to get the panel off. The filter and clean out are in the center. Unscrew the cap to remove and clean out, but have lots of towels ready, there will be water coming out.

If you are talking about the drain pump strainer, you need to remove the lower front panel. should be 3 screws on the bottom facing forward. Once you have that off, the pump strainer is almost in the center, facing you. unscrew it counterclockwise to remove.

Remove bottom panel. You should see a trap on the pump. Rotate cover ccw. Have pan ready to catch some water, or some towels.

My Maytag Front Loader Washer was reading sud on the digital screen and also reading F02. After a few days past by, it stopped reading that because i looked online and thought i solved the problem. Just...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Red light is on .Says clean pump i have cleaned out filter . Where is the pump?


Hi,

Often, certainly on front loaders in my experience, the pump is visible after the filter has been removed. It should be possible to check that it is free to turn by hand/finger BUT REMOVE POWER FIRST!
It is possible to visually check whether the pump is working, with power on of course and the filter still removed, by selecting a spin cycle at which point the drain motor pump should start to operate.

Good luck,

Washer won't drain. Pretty sure it's clogged but not sure how to check for this.


Hi, You don't mention whether this is a top loader or front loader. On the top loader you need to get to the drain pump. Front of washer may come off or the lid comes off and then the front. Some of them had clips under the console. Once you are at the pump, take a shop vac and empty the water. Both hoses inlet and outlet will have to be removed and cleaned. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ON THIS, UNPLUG THE MACHINE!!! If its a front loader the kickplate has to come off or the whole front, and same procedure as above. Hope this helps.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Kenmore front loader


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.
