Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I also have the same problem of my washing machine not draining, kenmore 41744052400. I took off the front panel under the washer door, but i do not know which part is the sump camp of the pump.
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.
