Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
You are referring to the drain pump reservior. Yes, they can be difficult to remove sometimes as they have a tight seal. Before you attempt to go any further read through the following link on checking the drain pump:
This may provide you with some helpful tips on how to avoid a mess of water coming from the wash tub, drain pump and lines.
If the cap will not come off, and has an open style handle, you can use a screwdriver for leverage. Place the screwdriver in the handle and CAREFULLY turn in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. If the handle is closed, I have found that a set of channel locks (looks like a large set of pliers) can give you the necessary leverage to pop the seal loose. Cover the teeth of the channel locks with electrical tape to prevent marring the pump handle. Again, exercise caution so that you do not break the handle off. Once you have the cap removed, use petrolium jelly on the rubber o-ring and seal the cap tight. The petrolium jelly will help keep the seal, but will make it easier to remove the next time you need to clean it.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
