You only have to look under where the hose might have come loose, refit. Check out your filter also.

What is best way to have my new Kenmore Elite Top-Loading washer (Model 796.3162) drain into a high pipe 7 feet from floor?


Nope, the drain pipe can be no higher than the Washing machine itself, the pump's to weak will not carry the water

What height should the washer be at for proper draining


Hi,

Normally washers sit on the floor and are drained, by a 'bent pipe', either into their own waste pipe or into a shared sink system. The higher the waste pipe is the harder the drain pump has to work to push the water out. Normally this should not be a problem as the pump should be powerful enough for the task!
So- the answer really is that it is not the washer height which matters but the waste height- and even then not much!
Hope this answers your question.

Cheers,
John C

I have a Kenmore 500 top load washer that doesn't hold water. As it is filling for the wash cycle all the water runs down the drain


The drain hose outlet must be higher than the 'full' water level in the tub or the water will syphon out until the tub water equals the hose height. If the drain system you are using for the washer is floor level, then you need to install a vertical pipe (1-1/2" minimum) to place the hose end into at the top and it should eject the water through a 90 degree elbow onto the floor at the bottom. There are more elegant solutions, but this will stop the tub from self-draining. Good luck!

My washer wont drain it goes thru all the cycles but wont drain. at first with clothes in it it would drain onto the ground and not thru the drain pipe. took the front cover off to see where it was leaking...


Sounds like the drain pump has failed. Try to turn the impeller to see if it is bound-up. It may just be debris blocking the rotation of the motor. Is there a filter that has plugged?

Washer spin but water do not stay in drum


Hi,

Sounds like your drain is laying on the floor, or your stand pipe is too low, or the drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe. The drain must be at least as hi as your water level in the machine at it's fullest level, otherwise it will just siphons out almost as quickly as it fills.

Hope that helps,

Good Luck.

Water still in bottom of tub after drain/spin cycle


I removed the drain hose from the bottom left rear corner of the washer & cleaned a large amount of gooey sludge from the bottom of the drain inside the washing machine.
