Slow draining water and leaking

My mom's washer is draining the water extremely slow and is leaking from some unknown source after the final cycle. We have the idea that the hose is jammed with something, but we can't figure out how to exactly fix it ourselves. We've looked everywhere for the manual but it's no where to be found. If you have any advice, ideas or diagrams that could help us out trying to unjam this thing, it would be really appreciated!

    Thanx Aborcass but we can't seem to find where to open it up, the front doesn't seem to have any screws so they tried the back, but even after unscrewing everything they still can't get it off

It needs to be inspected by an appliance repair guy. Your water pump may have a loose coupling causing low pump pressure, or the path water takes out of the machine is blocked.

you have a restriction in the drain somewhere or there is something inside the pump housing,chk every line from the tub to pump to drain pipe and hoses for blocks or kinks

The water is slow to drain and over night the washer filled up with water when it was empty and suppose to be off?


Replace the water valve on the washer, it is leaking water into the unit. Remove the drain pump and clean out any blockage causing the slow drain.

After the final spin cycle, my clothes are still wet.


Check these out:
  • If your washer spins but does not pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
  • To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the port.
  • Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
  • If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back after the spin cycle, your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub.
  • Also check for these problems:
  1. If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
  2. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Spin cycle is slow, cloths still extremely wet after spinning


problems with spin cycle could be due to variable reasons.components involved are the lid switch, timer control and the motor.The clothes might be soaked because there could be a drain problem.check whether the drain is clear for partial blockage.also inspect the water pump.

When cyle is finish clothes are still soaking wet


Sounds like a slow drain. Recheck the drain hose if it looks ok get a bucket to put the hose in to see how fast it comes out. If it comes out slow the drain pump impellor may be broken.

Final spin cycle for kenmore 417.40042990


This is an interesting problem. How long does it have to sit before you can get it to spin? Can you let it go through the cycle and then immediatly put it into spin and it work? This machine will not spin until the pressure switch senses the water has drained. So you could have a slow drain, a clogged pressure hose, or faulty switch. A clogged hose or faulty switch would usually cause it to fill with more water than normal also. A slow drain is most likely, check the drain hose when it is draining and see if it is putting out a strong flow or just slowly draining. I think you will find it to be slow. This will cause it to take up all or most of the spin time trying to drain the water. If it is slow draining, check the pump for a sock or some obstruction. If the drain is good, remove the top and remove the rubber hose from the pressure hose and blow through it. You should be able to blow through it easily. A restricted pressure hose will cause the machine to think it has water in it after it has drained.
