Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Won't completely drain load. Can hear water sloushing around in the drum. Took off front panel. Both tubes are clear. Any ideas?
I found when mine doesn't drain there is a sock blocking the drain holes. Open the door and pull out the rubber gasket at the bottoma nd there should be around a half a dozen holes. Good luck!

I too was having this problem. My issue was that an upstream supply
valve had a deteriorated washer and sent chunks of it down to the
washer, where I believe they jammed the valve of the washer.
You can verify that the valve isn't closed all the way by pulling out the
soap dispensed drawer and see if water is still dribbling in. I solved
by fixing the upstream valve/washer, clearing the screen at the hose inlet to the washer and running several cycles till the chunks cleared
out of the valve.
I bought a replacement valve assembly for the HE3, but still haven't

Your pump is probably clogged or the hose that connects the drum to the pump. . . you will have to take off the front panel, disconnect the pump, drain out the drum, take a wet vac to the hoses and then put it back together. . . . if you dont think you will be able to do this, I can come to your home and perform the service for $50.00 if you live in Tampa, and $65 if you live in pasco, pinellas, brandon, riverview, or St Pete....

When you say it's not completely draining, are your clothes still too wet. You will always hear water sloshing in a front load machine. The sound you may be hearing is the water between the inner tub lining that is used to balance the tub when in spin mode. Without this the tub would vibrate.
