Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
My kenmore clothes washer filled with water and can aggitate, but it will not drain. I have had no problems with this machine in the past.. it stopped, and I thought the wash was done, but when I opened it up, it was full of water. it will aggitate, but stops cold when it's supposed to drain. can a pump go out that fast? There was no warning.. is there a reset on the pump?
Some models reverse the moter to activate the pump .. some have a solonoid to engage the pump .. depends on what model you have ... if the motor runs but still it doesnt pump then look for a broken belt that drives the pump .. on some there is a little universal joint that sometimes breaks .. often the pump becomes clogged with coins and other debree .. you didnt say if the spin cycle started or not .. if it doesnt then you could have a bad door switch .. if that doesnt operate then the spin cycle wont start and it wont drain as well .. you can test for clogs by taking the drain hose out and placing it on the floor .. if a lot of water comes out then its not clogged .. if no water comes out then you have a clog .. (be prepaired for lots of water) .. even if water comes out there still could be a coin stoping rotation of the pump .. there is no reset on the pump, it is almost always run by the main motor ..
