Your washer does not have a cap on the drain pump. You need to remove the large rubber inlet hose from the front of the drain pump in order to access the pump impeller. This model washer tends collect debris in the large inlet hose area, so check it as well.

NOTE: If you own a wet/dry shop vac it will come in very handy to drain any residual water inside the wash tub. There's about a gallon of water that can remain in the wash tub and drain hose lines (this is normal). If you pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on it with a shop vac, this will make clean up much easier. Otherwise, you will need some towels to lay down under the pump before you remove the inlet hose.

For an illustration of what I'm talking about, you can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. Look under the "Motor/Tub" heading for item 35 (drain pump) and item 41 (Inlet drain hose).

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water under stackable washer dryer


The front panel comes off and you will be able to trace the water source. These combo units spin immediatly and if the drain is slow the water will spin up over the edge of the tub during drain.

My washer stops in the middle and flashes F21?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

An F21 error code indicate drain problem. Might you want to inspect/clean the drain system from the filter to catch basin to impeller, pump/valve and drain hose. To do this, the bottom/kick panel ahs to be removed. A bit of a messy job so pls be prepared with paper towels and other absorbent materials.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
