That small black box next to "the filter" is actually the drive motor for the drain pump. The motor has a small impeller blade inside that spins. More than likely, you have something caught in the drain pump that is hitting the impeller blades. The following link explains how to clean out the pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

With the filter removed from the pump, check for anything that may have gotten past it and getting caught in the impeller.

It doesn't take much to damage these small pumps. If you notice the noise continuing, reduced performance of the pump, or if you start receiving any error codes that do not clear, it is recommended that you replace the drain pump. New pumps can be purchased (if needed) at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can choose whatever web source you like, but these sites, I have found, provide excellent service with competitive pricing.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. Hopefully...you won't need any parts.

2005 Ford Focus is dead until I wiggle the battery wires


A ground wire that is not grounding, until you wiggle the wires. Follow those wires, there is a loose connection in there. Start at the neg. battery post, clean and tighten. Follow the small wires you can wiggle, see any splices that may have started to pull apart? Find the ground screw or whatever the small wires use to ground, that may be loose. Maybe the small wire goes to that black box? Take it off and look for the ground that isn't grounding.

Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is

running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump




The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Little Black Box, Fuel Pump, Fuel Lines


it sounds like you have a line hooked up to the wrong spot, and that little black box sounds like the charcoal canister, which is used to filter out fuel vapors. it sounds like either the supply or return line has been hooked into the vapor line. retrace your steps, largest diameter line is supply, medium is return, smallest line is vapor line. good luck!

Washing machine isn't spinning clothes.


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

What causes the HE3t washer to stop in spin and rinse cycle?


Sometimes the unplugging helps, or hitting "Cancel" several times.  Guaranteed to work though is to remove top, reach down the top to the door lock.  (Tight squeeze and need to be a little tall to reach) Once your hand is down there, on bottom of lock mechanism is a small handle that must be pulled straight down and manually unlock the door.  This can also be accomplished by removing lower front panel and reaching up to do the same.   BTW, while in the top, make sure all the electrical connections are tight.  I found some loose before, probably from the spinning action.
