Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Ok, I have read what I am supposed to do to clean the drain trap. But where the heck is the drain trap? I see the accordian hose going into the pump in back and I see the drain hose coming out of the pump in front. Do I remove the whole pump? I removed the drain hose clip (after disconnecting power and draining the machine), and can not get the hose to come off the pump. Help and please tell me if I need to disconnect the entire pump or if the "drain trap" is seperate.
You will need to remove the front lower axcess panel. There are 3 torx or 7mm Machine screws securing the bottom of the panel. Once the panel is removed you have axcess to the trap. Its the large plastic screw cap. Be ready to catch some water with a shop vac or other means.
