Have you check the pump, all front load washer drain before filling. If you have coins or foreign object inside pump the can be the cause of scraping noise. I would also check the tub for nails or object that can poke through and tub on the outer tub during rotation. Most of the time its a foreign object in the pump issue. Good luck..

My washer will not spin!!!!!!!!


If water remains in the drum the unit will not go into the final spin. There may be a couple of reasons which I have experienced resulting in your problem. If water remains in the tub the unit will not go into the high speed spin.

1.) A coin or other foreign object could block the drain hose. Check the drain hose for foreign objects impeding the exit of the water. Shake the hose and listen for coins or a small object this unit will pass items through the pump into the hose causing blockage.

2.) The Drain hose is not raised above the machine outlet to create a siphon effect. See your manual for proper hose positioning. The hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly.

3.) The pump is a third possibility which you should hear the impeller spinning during the drain cycle. There is a coin catch before the pump that looks like a rubber boot that should be inspected for objects if you remove the pump. The pump is about $60.00 and is accessible after removing the front panel under the door. It is easy access from the front and the hose clamps will be the most difficult problem. I have a ratcheting hose clamp tool designed for this type of clamp but channel lock pliers or vice grips will work.

If the washer will not agitate during the wash cycle you will need to remove the back panel to inspect the belt and spider pulley. You will also notice a counter weight at the top of the tub. Make sure the counter weight is tight and is not loose to prevent future problems.

Kenmore HE2Plus washer. It sounds like a pin or other metal object may have fallen through the holes of the drum. You can hear it roll around when you spin the drum. Is there any way to remove it without...


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

Noise under drum


1) Round the door seal - happens all the time on all sorts of machines. 2) Wait for it to find its way into the hose going down to the drain pump, then dig it out from there.
