Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Washer won't drain or spin...makes a humming noise when its supposed to be spinning..tried taking out half the load,but didn't help...sometimes have to wait awhile for it to work properly where are the 3 screws to open up the filter pump?
I think you have something in the pump.. you should have two or three screws at the front bottom panel remove the screws and pull down the panel, there should be a clean out with a filter just turn it clockwise. Make sure you have a bucket and towels ready to mop up the water. If there is no clean out or nothing in the hose you will have may have to undue the hose that goes to the pump and seperate the pump by unscrewing it and clean it out. let me know if this helps.krazytech

Tips for a great answer:
Hello sismurphy1 - Does the washer make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Hello crazze21 - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if what pump out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to diagnose either the pump or timer.

Hello Dorothy - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.
