Kenmore Oasis washer model 110.27032600; trapped hidden water


when you tipped the washer was the drain hose still attached? and if so was the drain hose elevated? most top load washers will have an amount of leftover water in the bottom of the tub. with the drain hose off and the washer tipped towards the rear you should lose any excess water. also try to open the top of the agitator to see if there is any water trapped there. hope this helps....

Agitator spins slowly and wont drain water-slight burning smell when operating


Hi, Th smell is most likely the belt. If the washer is not draining, the pump could be locked up and this will cause the belt to smell.
The pump is located underneath rear right corner. If you set the drain hose itno abucket and get the water out. you can tip the washer back and see if the pump is froze. I see you posted this premium but I didn't get to it in time cause I was asnwering this.
Hope it helps

Washer will not drain on spin


We ended up opening up the washer and checking the pump and guess what , there was a tiny drill bit stuck in it that stopped it from spinning and working. Thank god we didnt burn out the pump.

Spin/Drain cycle...Kenmore 417.40042990 Front load belt drive washer.


If the water is draining quickly (less than 30 secs) every time, than it sounds like its sensing an out of balance load, the CCU looks for this.... Before every spin cycle it goes through an out of balance routine it will do this even when empty.....It speeds up, slows down and will tumble again at least once....then speeds up ....looks at motor amps......decelerates.....looks at rate of deceleration.......Then decides if its ok to spin at the high speed...or if it should tumble again to distribute the clothes....If it cant balance itself to what it like than it will spin at a lower speed like yours is doing if its bad enough than it wont spin at all really (very slow). Im sure you checked the shocks while you were looking at the pump, but double check that there not broken at the mounts, or lots of grease at the base mount. If thats all good than you should try this......Sort a large size load of just regular tshirts and casual wear (no towels, jeans). Let me know how it spins then. Also make sure that its draining quickly every time. Sometimes the drain pump can appear fine and not be starting every time.

Error code 20


i think your on the right track but a couple of things you need to know first that model washer wont spin tiny loads or one articles of clothing it has a device in the motor called a tacho generator to balance if you have only a small load it cant sense the balance and most of the time will only rock back and forth second your pump is the most likely culprit if you look in side the washer you will see a seem in the tub next to that will be one of the washer tumblers take the screws out of that tumbler slide it forward there will be a hole there rotate the tub to your right and you will find the hole going down to the drain pump can check it there but i don't think you'll find any thing as that is a larger hole it think your drain pump is now if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water ou of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case.now remove the two screws on the front lowerpanel and pull the panel
