The outer door panel makes it easier to get to the bottom. Open the door and remove the screws from the inner liner staring from the bottom on each side working your way up. You will stop just short of the top 2. Have a brace under the panel so it does not fall on your foot. Once the screws are out the panel lifts off.

How do I check the electric connection to Kenmore Elite drain pump


First, UNPLUG the washer before servicing. Remove the lower access panel directly below the washer door by locating and loosening the torx (7mm) screws under the bottom front of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and come off.

NOTE: For better access the the screws, place a 2x4 or under the front two feet of the washer. This will raise the front slightly, so you can access under the lower panel.

With the panel removed, the drain pump motor is located directly in front. The motor electrical connection, consists of a small electrical plug. Remove the plug and check the pins at the MOTOR with a multimeter on the lowest resistance scale. A good motor winding reading is about 12.3 ohms. Anything higher, usually means the motor is shot and needs to be replaced. If the motor windings read normal, you need to trace your wiring from the motor to the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer of the washer (located directly behind the drum at the top of the washer. This can be accessed by locating and removing the screws in that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

Check to make sure the wires are not broken or loose anywhere. Disconnect and reseat any connections to make sure you have good contact.

Generally, the pump motors fail on these washers and cause error codes. In the majority of the cases, the pump is either clogged, or the motor needs to be replaced. Remove the access cover on the pump housing to check for debris, or anything that could be caught in the pump impeller, preventing it from turning. Make sure you remove any residual water in the washer if you want to avoid a messy clean up. An easy way to do this is to remove the drain hose at the standpipe and pull a vacuum on the line with a wet/dry shop vac. This removes all the residual water in the tub and drain lines.

If replacement parts are required, I have had great luck with the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites also include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

HELPFUL HINT:

You can save money by only purchasing the pump motor instead of the entire pump assembly. The motor comes off the pump housing by removing three screws. Make sure you install the rubber o-ring gasket to maintain a good seal. Apply a thin film of petroleum jelly on the o-ring as an added measure to get a good seal. The appliance websites generally only sell the pump as an ENTIRE assembly. However, I have found reputable sellers on Ebay, that sell just the motor. Do not buy anything USED as you cannot guarantee how long the motor will last.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do u replace a fuel pump on a 2003 Nissan Altima?


You access these from the back seat. You have to remove the lower seat, look to see if there are a couple of bolts to remove at the front of the seat, if not then push back on the seat as you lift up. then there are a couple of bolts to remove from the backrest, remove those and lift up. There is a plate on the floor to remove to gain access to the pump. These will either bolt in or there is a ring that holds it in.

How do i get the panel off to work on it?


If you are referring to the CONTROL PANEL, follow these steps:
1. Locate and remove the three screws that hold the top panel in place in the REAR of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and push the release tab in the back to release the drawer so it will come out.
3. Remove any panel screws behind the dispenser drawer and along the bracket inside the washer directly behind the control panel.
4. Insert a putty knife directly above the door in the seam under the control panel. There is a release tab that you need to depress and the panel should pop loose.
Use caution not to stress any of the wires.
If you are referring to the LOWER TOE PANEL directly below the door, you need to you will need to remove the access screws (7mm or T2 Torx type) that are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off.
If you are referring to the REAR PANEL, remove the series of screws around the perimeter of the panel and remove. You normally do not have to disconnect the water lines to accomplish this. However, shutting off the water and removing the hoses can give you better access.

If none of these are the panel you are referring to, please post back and elaborate a bit more and explain WHAT panel you are trying to remove. I hope you find this information helpful.

Drain reservoir, front loader


If this is a Kenmore Elite series FRONT LOADER, the drain pump reservior is located behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. If the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the drain cycle will exceed 8 minutes and generate error codes. These errors will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

These are both very simple repairs that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman.

NOTE: For an explanation of any error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore washing machine


Whether this is a TOP LOADER, or a FRONT LOADER, the drain pump is located directly below the wash tub in the front of the washer. Accessing either one takes, different procedures, however.

To access the pump on a TOP LOADER, you must remove the exterior washer casing. Follow the steps provided in this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

If this is a FRONT LOADER, you must remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. Follow the steps provided in this link:

The Kenmore Oasis is a different configuration from the two I've mentioned. There are two pumps on the Oasis. One is a drain pump, while the other is a recirc pump. Both are accessible by removing the rear panel of the washer.

If you require further assistance, please post back with a complete model number so I can determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Where is the pump filter on a front loading ge washing machine Model # WCVH6260FWW


The filter (or clean out trap) is located on the drain pump. To access, just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.

2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).

4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.

5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.

6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.

7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.

8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe.

For reference, you can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at appliancepartspros.com. If you have any questions about this procedure, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I need to get access to the pump on a mfw9800. can you tell how to get off the access panels?


To access the pump on this model washer, simply remove the toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: For better access to the screws, you can prop the two front feet of the washer up ( a section of 2x4 works well for this).

The drain pump will be located in the front, directly below the wash tub. If you are attempting to clean out the pump, you will need to remove the residual water from the drain lines and wash tub if you wish to avoid a messy clean up. A helpful tip is to remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line using a wet/dry shop vac. If you do not own a shop vac, you will need to lay down some towels before removing the clean out trap on the pump to catch the gallon or so of water that will pour out.

NOTE: You may also want to remove the inlet hose on the pump and inspect for clogs as well. This is a common area for small articles of clothing to get trapped.

If you are having drainage issues, and cleaning the pump does not help, you may need to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to cause irreparable damge to the impeller and/or motor of these drain pumps. Since the error code is generated if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged it will not pump at the correct volume, and the error code will continue to appear.

NOTE: With the clean out trap removed, make sure you check the pump impeller area as well. Small items can get caught in the impeller and restrict the movement.

If a replacement pump is required, the part number is 280187. You can purchase one at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop around for the best deal. Hopefully, if this is the problem you are experiencing, you won't require any parts.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I need help getting the front panel off my frigidaire front load washer to clear blocked drain


If the model number is correct, this model washer's drain pump is accessed by removing the lower kick panel directly below the door. There are two screws holding it in place along the bottom front edge.

HINT: You may prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access to the screws (a 2 x 4 works well for this).

With the panel removed, locate the drain pump in the front under the wash tub. To clean out the pump on this type of washing machine, you need to remove the drain hose on the inlet side of the drain pump. This is the large black rubber hose that runs from the wash tub to the pump.

NOTE: Remove the clamp at the pump and clean out any debris in the hose and/or pump impeller. It is much easier to remove the clamp on the pump than it is to remove and reinstall the one on the wash tub.

HINT: If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line to remove all residual water from the wash tub. This will save you from a mess of water to clean up. If you don't own a shop vac, you will need to lay down some towels to catch any residual water that remains in the wash tub and drain line. FYI: Residual water is normal.

If all these steps do not correct your drain problem, you will need to replace your drain pump.

A replacement can be found at pcappliancerepair.com for about $81. Just type in your model number and look under the "Motor/Tub" heading for item F35. Use the drawings provided as well to assist in parts location and assembly.

If you have questions, or if I have the wrong washer model, please post back and elaborate, so that I may assist you better. I hope you find this information helpful.

On inglis direct drive washing machine excessive lint on clothes and can see no visible lint filter


If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.
