I suggest first checking the water pump. If you don't know how to get inside your machine, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc&feature=related. It is very good (I've never worked on a WM before and this told me exactly what to do). Remove the washer casing and first check the pump. Take off the BOTTOM hose first to let the water drain into the spill pan (Have a bucket handy and or something with which to plug the pump in case the flow is too fast for your drain pan - but if you have an obstruction, it should drain slowly.) Once the water is out, remove the top hose and look inside your pump. I had a similar issue and found a small sock in my pump. Pulled it out and my 9 year old WM works like a champ now.

If that doesn't fix it, I'd then suggest removing the motor (just 2 screws and 2 clips) and checking the motor coupler. But if the coupler was the problem, your machine should have at least drained.

If that doesn't do the trick, you could be looking at a new transmission/gear casing - which on my WM was going to be around $170.

But again, I suspect your looking at something jammed in your water pump. Good luck!

My Kenmore compact washer with dryer on top, will not go from the first wash-rinse-drain-spin cycle to the second rinse-drain-spin-off cycle.


Check and make sure the door is pushed all the way down until you hear a click. If it starts with the next cycle, then your door switch may be bad. It's a pretty easy fix, but I would watch a video at least before doing it yourself.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Kenmore stack washer and dryer


gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
