Soundsas if oyou have a faulty lid switch, lift teh top up and down a few times and listen for the "clicking" sond of a switch being activated, if you donthearit yo need a new lid switch,hte unit will fill and wash with the door open, but when it comes to drain/spn the lid must be closed for safety reasons, and a bad switch will not allow spin/drain to occour.

My kenmore front load he2 plus wont drain.


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Kenmore Washer Top Load Series 60 won't drain


The water pump is a belt-driven device actuated by a clutch. Your problem could be:

1. Stuck pulley - break it loose and WD-40 it
2. Broken belt - replace
3. Bad clutch - call repair or replace

There is almost nothing that can go wrong in the pump itself. It's probably one of these three.
