The pump should be able to move waste water 3 feet above the washing machine but if that fails, then you could always buy a sewage ejector set up ( plastic barrell with internal pump and water level sensor) . Those have a highjer pupm head pressure and would be able to move water up a column further than a washing machine pump. IN all probability, you will be ok at 7 - 9 feet from floor.
Hope that helps..

Rick

Kenmore 90 series It washes but will not drain,just buzzes


Hi
If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.
Hope this helps...

Kenmore 90 series washer does not drain


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 washer will not drain or spin


more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump

Kenmore 90 series washer is leaking water from the pump. How do I remove the pump to repair or replace? Thanks!


Hi, You can change the pump by disconnecting power, water fill hoses, & take drain hose out od drain. Lay the washer on its back (use some padding under machine so that you do not damage threads on inlet valve. The pump is located on motor and has two clamps holding it. Just remove those clamps and the two drain hoses from the pump. The pump should release from the motor shaft. If the motor shaft is rusty, the pump might not want to come off ease and the shaft will need to be cleaned with sand paper or emery cloth so the new pump will go on easy. Failure to get the pump on all the way will cause the new pump to leak also.
Put your hoses back on the pump and everything should be ok.

I hope this helps you some.

Kenmore washing machine series 90 is leaking


Hi MPT,

Don't take the back panel off!!!

Watch this video to learn how to access the machine.


Generally on a Whirlpool built Kenmore like yours, the drain pump has failed and now it's leaking. The pump is right there in front, the big round white thing. It's connected to the motor by 2 clips. It'll be one of two types of pump... this one or this one <----notice the difference in hose connections?

It's easy to replace, just make sure that the machine is completely empty when you remove the hose or have a shop-vac handy when you do.

And don't forget to rate my solution as "FixYa", deal?
