These machines are my favorite to work on. They are easy to repair and usually a VERY good machine. Does it agitate or does the motor go and spin the basket? If it does the pump is very easy to get to. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} 1st take off the control panel. Use a putty knife between console and base of washer. Go to the outside corner and push in and tilt back cont panel. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} . The remove 2 gold clips underneath that. the whole outer cabinet will then come off. The pump is right in front and it just clips off. It could have a sock in it or something. They hardly ever go bad. Here is a link to breakdown the parts of the washer. just enter your entire model number in the page. The entire model is under the lid. Hope it helps, let me know if you need anything else.

Washing machine keeps draining during rinse


You may be experiencing a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575830-how_to_prevent_washer_siphoning

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Will not drain and spin


A failed lid switch is likely your problem. It's a repair you could make yourself. It would be an inexpensive repair should you decide to call in a professional.

Kenmore 70 series top loader - wouldn't drain & spin


The lid switch is the only thing affecting this part of the cycle. The new switch comes with the new plug (under console ) and the harness that goes to the switch. The console will flip up and the cabinet will pull forward after removing 2 brass looking clips. After that it's right there under the right side of the upper cabinet.

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine


Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.
