If you have no known issues with your plumbing, it sounds like you either have a failed drain pump, or something obstructing the pump, preventing it from draining. As long as the wash tub is still full of water, the unit will not proceed to a spin cycle. I would recommend you check the drain pump first. The following link explains how:

Make sure you also check all the drain hoses for clogs as well. In particular, the hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Small articles of clothing have been known to find their way into this area. NOTE: Using a wet/dry shop vac will go along way towards assisting you with emptying the washer of all water and minimizing the mess associated with cleaning out the drain pump.

If you clean out the pump and the unit still does not drain properly, the manufacturer recommends replacing the drain pump. The next link explains how:

Normally, a drainage issue is also associated with an error code of either "F02" or "F21, depending on model. Does your washer also show any error codes on the front panel? Now...with that said, the absence of an error code does not necessarily mean you do not have a failed component. For some reason, sometimes an error does not always get generated.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions, or still need assistance.

I have a Kenmore top load washer model 20692. The washer won't drain and whenever the washer is supposed to turn all I hear is a hum. What could be the problem and is it worth fixing in a 10 year old...


Hi,
Sounds like you have multiple problems...you are right... probably not worth fixing...
Look at the front loaders... they use way less water and are more gentile on your clothing...

Wont spin or drain it only only hums when turn on


Either your drain pump is bad or something is stuck in it.  It won't spin until it drains so fix the drain pump, and it will spin.  You should be able to get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel, or back panel.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Kenmore front load washer 44052


Mine issue was a loose connection. I removed the back panel and pushed in all the wires. The washer started working again. If you take off the back panel and the belt is broken then that could be your problem. Unplug the washer first.
