Pull the pump apart and use some steel wool on the inside and outside of the motor assembly where they spin. This will allow the voltage to make contact and allow it to pump. I had the same problem you had and this fixed it.

Put test bulb on the two wires going to the pump, it should light, if it those not, it could be the PC board or broken wire, make sure the outlet hose is not blocked you might have to blow through it.Close reland bye bye

Check for a kinked drain hose. Also, if it is an older machine it could have something stuck in the drain pump. The usually culprit is an under wire bra

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter

Kenmore Washer/Dryer Does Not Drain. Please Help!

Check out your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean(ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Some connect to sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

If the above fails, check to see if your pump is blocked. Pl rate if helped.

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.
