Kenmore front loader not draining with a clicking noise

I ran a load of laundry small and when it was done the washer was still full of water. I took a measuring cup and bowl and got out as much water as possible. My husband pulled washer out and it is spinning and now making a clicking noise like it wants to drain.
Is there anything we can do or does a technician need to come out.... Help please have a soccer tournament this week and need washer.

Check your drain pump reservoir for any possible obstructions. That may be the source of the clicking noise. Probably something stuck in the pump impeller. The following link explains how:

If clearing the drain pump does not resolve the problem, you may have a damaged drain pump. If they do not pump at the correct volume, the washer will not complete a wash cycle. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. You can find replacements at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service and have competitive pricing, so shop all of the for the best deals.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

When filling my Kenmore washer to begin a load of laundry the water enters the tub like it is going to wash but immediately drains onto the floor and the "water sensor" never tturns the water...


This either due to a detached "water sensor"/pressure switch hose or a broken drain/leaking drain pump. Disconnect power then remove the screws securing the console to the top of the machine. Pull the console forward then up and lay it back on the hinges. The screws are located at the rear of the console, front corners of the console, or at the front corners of the console under the end caps.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

Kenmore Elite HE 3 front loader--water standing under drum at all times?


If you take off the bottom panel on the front of the washer, there is a little pump with a twist lid on it. Open that and see if there is anything plugging up the drain. We had a problem where a sock got sucked into it and it did the same thing.
