Washer (Sears front-load Mod. 110.A4757) bought in 2007 as a backup, installed in Dec. 2009, still new, now refuses to spin. No sound, no apparent reason. How do I get it going again ?

    The water will not drain by gravity. Right now I can't get to the rear panel because the washer and dryer are top mounted so to heavy. Also the washer is filled with water so to heavy. And I can't open the door to empty it because the door is locked.

    I am getting a 5D code followed by an F- code (indicating an electrical problem according to the Sears book).

    Washer working. Had to call a service man. Couldn't get it working after checking all you mentionned. The service man found a small half-inch objet somewhere in the drain tube (or pump), checked the entire machine (an electric problem code kept coming up,..) and left me a 150 CAN$ bill. Can't say we didn't try ...THANKS anyway

It doesn't drains or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Please check the following

Does the water pump out if not then lay the drain hose down into a bucket so that it does (The timer needs to be told that there is little or no water left inside the machine before it will do a spin cycle)

If the pump is working
Take the back off and look for the pressure switch it looks like a small flying saucer will be near the top of the machine, It will be connected to the bottom of the outer container via a small plastic or rubber tube.

Take the tube off at the lower end and blow into the pipe the pressure switch should click as you blow and then again when you remove the pressure.

If it clicks ok, try doing a spin on its own if that does not work you need to check the motor brushes to see if they are sticking.

If the brushes are free you are back to the main programmer

Kenmore Elite front load washer (model: 110 42936200) won't spin. It makes a buzzing/humming sound when it should be spinning. Any suggestions?


F2 mean that you have a drainage problem and could be that the pump is clogged. I believe the pump can be accessed from the front of the washer. Also make sure electrical connections are secure. Make sure no hoses are clogged or kinked anywhere.

My Kenmore 800 series washer leaks from under the front left during the spin cycle. I looked behind it and checked the connections but all seems fine in that area. What could be causing this?


Same problem! Flooded the laundry room and about 1/4 of the basement. Happens randomly, not every load. Checked all hoses, they are snug and don't appear to be leaking at all. During the wash cycle it you can hear it spraying water inside the washer and the floor starts flooding. I bought the washer Sept. 19, 2009 and have had this problem for about 5 weeks now. Sears refuses to do anything about it, because it's no longer under warranty.

Kenmore Mod 110 24632300 won't drain


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110+24632300

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

I'm assuming that it will spin.

See the section for the Pump, Motor and gearcase and the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Our kenmmore front loader is having a problem with the pump. When it empties there is dirt with the water. Is there any way I can get at the pump and clean it? It is working 70% and as long as I have the drain hose on the ground the water will drain. When I shake the hose dirt comes out and sometimes it says F21. Can anyone help.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

Kenmore washer drains but won't spin.


Sounds like the motor coupling has broken, fairly inexpensive part but does require some finesse to install. let me know if you decide to attempt it.
