Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
I put 3 bathroom rugs in the washer and first I noticed all water on my floor so I think it was coming from where the black water hose attaches to the water pipe so I taped in with electrical tape.. Then, I started the machine again where I left it and then the water would not drain, at all....I took out the wet rugs and I noticed that alot of rug material seemed to be probably clogging something in the machine. I took a wet vac and vacuumed out the machine and noticed that alot of the rug material seemed to be stuck under the tub grid......help....what do I do....email@example.com
I really hate those little rubber pieces that come off of those rugs, they really gum up everything. Just for future reference try to wash those outside with a water hose and a scrub brush. It will save you lots of money in repairs.
As for your current problem try to get as much out of the tub as possible. Then you will have to remove the small kickplate on the bottom of the washer. Get you some towels and a maybe a flat pan to catch some water. The panel will have a few screws around it that will need to be removed. Once you have removed the panel you will see your pump. The front of the pump has a filter that can be unscrewed and removed for cleaning. Unscrew the filter and get ready to catch some water. Maybe as much as a couple gallons. Once you have cleaned it out put the filter back in the pump and leave the panel off. Run the washer throught another cycle and clean the pump out again. You may need to repeat this several times. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if you still have draing issues you could have a clogged drain and for that you may need a plumber. Well good luck to you and I hope I helped.
