Washing machine drain pump. The pump mounts directly to the motor with two clips. If the washer does not drain then the pump could be locked up or a small object may be clogging it. A small leak in front of the washer could be caused by a defective pump.

Welcome to the site,
You said, you have a Kelvinator chest freezer, model number CFS101SM1W. This freezer is in excellent condition and was working ok. I notice that there was a rust spot on the bottom area so I decided to spray paint the entire inside with the appropriate appliance spray paint. After spray painting the freezer will not cool.
How old was your freezer?
This must be an ancient freezer!
And Unfortunately I was not able to tell you to leave it alone and not to turn it off!
You did not cause this!
Unfortunately it was so old that it probably was already on it's last legs.
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace your appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old freezer
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model ?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your ,freezer
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that freezer under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new freezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Yes, Agreed! Do not wash the bike like a car. Wipe them down. Water is the enemy of any bike - especially the electronics and conections. Use silicone spary to keep water form penetrating and cause problems. Silicon will also preserve rubber and plastic parts. But, Be careful! surfaces will become slippery, such as seats, tires, grips, etc.

The most common cause of the symptoms you just described is a lid switch malfunction or lid strike (actuator) problem. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the initial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that may not drain.
The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike" or "Actuator") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are tight. Sometimes these screws will loosen, causing the lid switch make intermittent contact. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because it does NOT have a lid strike (actuator) and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This type of switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator rod by bending it slightly.
NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
The first three sites on the list, include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. The lid switch and associated components are usually listed under the "Top and Cabinet" parts listing.
NOTE: Banging or slamming the lid can actually cause more harm than good. These switches are fragile and can break easily in this manner.
The average price of a replacement lid switch is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. The lid strike (if equipped) usually costs less than $5. Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. This is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.
The part numbers for the model you have listed are as follows: LID SWITCH 3949247, LID STRIKE (Actuator) 358684. If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If this advice does not help you enough, repairclinic.com has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20.
Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you
