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:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.20922990&pathTaken=partSearch

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:

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.

I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

(It sounds a bit complicated but it's not really that difficult.)

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

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

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

Loud Bang at End of Spin Cycle; Leak Underneath Washer


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Check for tips on the link below to identify parts and removal:

Also check on the SEAL on the door and drum, it can also be worn out and reposition the drum to move out which can result in the noise when the spin is activated.

Where do I find the MCU on my Kenmore h2plus washer?


  • 1 Check for any error codes in the Estimated Time Remaining display. The code "F20" indicates a water inlet problem. Press the Stop button twice to end the cycle and check that the faucets are turned on fully. Take a look at the inlet hoses. Close the valves and unscrew them. Look for any clogging on the screen and clear it.

  • 2 "F21" indicates a draining problem. Again, press the Stop button twice and take a look at the drain hose. Make sure it's not kinked, frozen or clogged.
  • 3 "SD" on the display indicates the machine has gone into its Suds Routine. The Suds Routine removes excess suds so that the garments rinse properly. It's not a problem, but can be an indication you've used a non-high-efficiency powder. Just let the SD routine complete and the draining will continue.

  • 4 Make sure the washer is level if it gets noisy or vibrates too much. Use the leveling feet to adjust the level. They screw and unscrew for adjustment. Make sure the shipping bolts were removed from the back of the machine if the machine gets too noisy. See the "Removing Transport System" section in the instruction manual.
  • 5 Check that you are using HE detergent if you spot leaks. Check that the fill hoses are tight and that the drain hose is secured to the drain pipe. Check that the drain isn't clogged.
  • 6 Make sure the load is balanced if the washer won't drain or spin--or if water remains in the washer. Redistribute the load.
  • Buy Custom Car parts.

    My washer is leaking from the detergent tray.


    There is a hose to the tray so it can rinse the detergent inside the machine. The hose can leak, sometimes there is a seal on the tray that can leak also

    A burst hose or a broken hose connector clamp most likely. Open the back after disconnecting power. Use bright flashlightto see where its dripping from and confirm the hose-clamp is brokem/ open or a connecting hose is burst. Carry broken hose to hardware store like Rona for a replacement tubing, cut to size and re-instal, voila!

    Dishwasher (Kenmore 665 Ultra Wash) won't drain. Suggestions?


    HI.This is a drain issue. check the following areas for faults.

    1. Air gap / Drain hoses
    If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

    If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

    Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

    Ok, if the hoses are ok and not clogged, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the drain assembly or pump impeller.

    replace the pump(drain) if found to be faulty.

    Washer leaks and tub won't empty in the beginning of the cycle


    check your hoses all the connections. you'll have to pull the part with the knobs off to do this inside. If it isn't turning, but the motor runs, it might be the coupler in the bottom of the washer connecting the motor and transmission.

    BF41 Dishwasher with a leak stuck in mid cycle


    Your air gap is clogged, the thing sticking up from the sink next to the faucet. there is a hose that goes from the air gap to the dishwasher, somewhere in that system is clogged. You can clear it if you have a quarter inch drain snake.
