SOURCE: Washing machine Kenmore 3.2 cu ft Super capacity plus top loader

fabi, if Im reading you right the machine fills with water and just sits there. Can you hear the motor running when it should be agitating? If so you might have a broken coupler. If the machine is quiet and just sits there, it could be the pressure switch. The first picture shows the pressure switch with the rubber hose and purple wire going to it (far left). There is no model number posted but this is a top loading Kenmore, should be close. Take the rubber tubing off the switch and blow into the switch with another piece of tubing. Does it start agitating? If so, there's your problem. If you do hear the motor running and it's not agitating it may be the motor coupler. If you need more assist...email me at catriver1@gmail.com Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Cant remove drain pump cap of bosch washing macine

I just replaced my drain pump on my BOSCH washing machine WFL2060-so almost identical to yours. When I posted my question, I was told that it was a pain to do, that many repairmen refuse to do it etc.... even that the front panel does not come off. Well, I am a fairly petite (by athletic) woman, and very far from being an expert at repairing anything....
I just did it in less than 45 minutes with a screw driver and a pair of pliers (and a bit of common sense). Here is the protocol:
1- UNPLUG your machine
2- drain any water that could be left inside (at the bottom front right, you will find a small door: open it, the filter and the small black hose are there)
3- . put an old blanket on the floor behind your machine and a piece of wood long enough to go across the width of your machine- place it half way to what will be the height of your machine once it lies down on the floor- this will save your fingers in case you loose grip of the machine while tilting it down on its back...
4- tilt your machine back and down on its back: use your thigh muscles as the machine si a bit heavy (if you have a friend help you that will be easier-but I did it alone...
5- remove the bottom front panel (2 screws)
6- above the filter access you will see 1 to 3 screws: take them off
7- from the bottom of your machine, take out the electric plug at the back of the pump's motor
8- using your pliers (and a good grip) loosen the metallic braces that hold the 2 hoses and slide them down along each of the hoses
9- the unit will come off into your hand.
10- replace the unit with the new one
11- screw the unit back
12 plug the wires back
13 reposition the hoses (you cannot go wrong, they are on wither side of the pump)
14- slide the braces back onto the hose+pump outlet
15- tilt your machine back
16- plug your machine
17- you are ready for your load!
AND... you have saved about $200 without the part (I ordered it, paid $49 and was delivered to me within 2 business days!)

SOURCE: I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

SOURCE: remove and replace fabric softener dispenser on kenmore model 20952992

I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

Wher is the pump on a front loader


It depends upon the model number, but MOST front loader washers have a drain pump located directly below the wash tub behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. To remove the panel, locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will come off, exposing the drain pump and internal components. If you need further guidance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore washing machine


Whether this is a TOP LOADER, or a FRONT LOADER, the drain pump is located directly below the wash tub in the front of the washer. Accessing either one takes, different procedures, however.

To access the pump on a TOP LOADER, you must remove the exterior washer casing. Follow the steps provided in this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

If this is a FRONT LOADER, you must remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. Follow the steps provided in this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

The Kenmore Oasis is a different configuration from the two I've mentioned. There are two pumps on the Oasis. One is a drain pump, while the other is a recirc pump. Both are accessible by removing the rear panel of the washer.

If you require further assistance, please post back with a complete model number so I can determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

How do I drain the outer tub of my washing machine?


If you own a wet/dry shop vac this can take about 5 minutes. Pull the drain hose from the stand pipe at the wall and pull a vacuum using the shop vac. These front loaders usually only hold about 5 to 7 gallons when full.

If you do not own a shop vac, you will need to access the drain pump and either remove one of the drain lines, or remove the clean out trap cover on the drain pump (if equipped). You will need a lot of extra towels to catch all the water. This can be a messy method to use.

If you need further assistance, please post back with your brand name and model number. All front loaders are not designed the same and this makes it much easier to diagnose. I hope this helps you.

I have a roper that spins but want drain


Your drain pump is clogged.
Remove the cabinet, remove the pump and remove whatever is clogging the pump.
The pump is located in front of the drive motor.
