This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for 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:

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.

My kenmore clothes washer not starting the spin cycle

Check the drain hose before it goes into the drain, if it is full of water. If you can pull the drain hose out of the drain, try to drain it into a bucket. The reason it won't go into spin cycle is that the pressure switch senses to much water in the tub.

Now this can be caused by several things, broken drive belt, bad drive motor and finally a bad pump or a clogged pump. In any caseif you need to look at these parts, disconnect the power cord 1st, then remove the back panel to view all these parts. If you think you have unplugged the pump or drained the water, then plug it in and try another wash cycle.

Is this a front loading washer?

How do i get to the main drain and pump on a kenmore elite front load washer

You will need a few towels. There is a cartridge like filter located on the front lo2er left corner of all current front load washers for cl3aning purposes. Remove or open the access panel plate and begin unscrewing the cartridge. After about 3 full turns it will begin to leak water. If you have a elevation base with a drawer place towels inside there to soak up water that leaks out. Once drained unscrew and pull straight out to clean the lower filter. There is another place to clean out just inside the drum on the front just under and behind the door seal

How do I clean the pump filter

HI THERE, Unplug machine for 5 minutes for a reset and try a spin /drain cycle. It is too simple but why not try. Now that your hopes of an easy fix are shot unplug machine and let the fun begin. The screen is located behind a door at the bottom of the left front of washer. Open door. Remove door. Grab a good size shallow pan and a large rag. Pull plug to drain machine. Once water is out remove screen - it is part of the round knob in that area. Some water will come with it. Clean screen. I use acid to remove build up on the screen from well water. Inspect entire area. A small dental mirror can be helpful. Junk can get caught up in impeller to pump. I had a shaft break on mine and had to replace pump about two months ago - $40,00. Remember something is stopping the water. If filter / screen was really full and you found something plugging the drain - Replace filter / screen and hose plug. Plug in to wall and try a rinse and spin.
Hint if water will not drain from hose. pull machine away from wall lean it back against wall. This will hopefully allow you to open screen filter to remove it. I had a plugged hose once. it was a pain to do. I could not tilt my machine because of space. I used a shop vac to drain filter by slowly opening the filter / screen. I was able to then with a wire remove clog from hose. If things are really bad you can tilt machine and reach up under machine and pull small drain hose. IF YOU TO REMOVE PUMP - YOU TUBE. TRY TO REMOVE IT FROM UNDERNEATH. IF YOU CANT, THE HARDEST PART IS THE TUBE GASKET SPRING. VISE GRIP NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS AND ANOTHER REGULAR NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS WORK WELL. I SECOND SET OF HANDS WITH A UNDERSTANDING MIND ARE MUCH NEEDED. IT IS JUST MACHINE - IT HAS NO SOUL- OR FEELINGS. YOU CAN SCREAM AT IT ALL DAY.

Drain is plugged on Frigidaire washer ATF6700FS2

vacuum at full power from both sides, this should pull the rags further apart, making it easier for the water to flush them.

How do I get rid of the black mold on the door gasket?

If you take a bit of tilex mold/mildew spray and a rag, you should be able to remove it all.
Also , look down at the bottom of the front "gutter" just in front of the tub. There is a series of drain holes and clothes lint can build up a bit in here. take a towel and wipe the holes really clean . This will help keep the water draining out of the front and keep the moldy smell to a minimum.
One last thing, I've found with my front loader, that if I keep my wash loads to a medium full size instead of completely jammed full load size, the drain/mold issue is almost non-existent.
Hope this clean it all up for you!

WM1832CW, wont drain and spin, has LE error, was able to drain water, using spin only function, still would not spin, sounds abnormally, drum is not moving at all. I know LE means motor overload, but what...

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Can't hold water

There is no drain valve.
Pull the drain hose up out of the drain pipe until there is only about 6" inside the pipe. Make sure there is a gap around the hose where it goes into the pipe so air can get in.
Make sure the drain pipe is higher than the water level in the tub.

not sure about the f04 code but if its still full of water try putting the washer onto a drain cycle if the water does not drain then your pump is either blocked or faulty to check if its faulty pull the washer outnow take the drain hose and place into a bucket low to the floor if it comes straight out then the pump is faulty what it is is they have a magnectic part which goes down if the water doesnt come out its blocked you will have to take the washer outside tip it backwards but dont put it on its back now undue the sump hose which is situated in the centre of the drum pull it the water will drain out now undue the 2screws under the pump pull out undue the pipes you should see the blockedge if not could be in the drain hose itself m8 let me know how you go on if the pump needs replacing shouldnt cost no more than £20
