Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
First, eliminate the timer control by advancing the knob slowly a few clicks to see if the drain pump will engage . Do this right after the wash cycle ends, (the agitator will stop rotating back and forth ) and within a few seconds , 5-45 seconds , the drain pump turns on . Also,check to be sure the drain hose is not kinked anywhere from your washer to the drain. Then proceed .... As I don't know how old the washer is , I will cover the electronic style control system as well . If it is electronic , the rinse light is what you will be looking for . The same thing happens , in that the drain pump should start up to drain the water out . In either case, listen closely at that point for a mechanical or electrical humming noise at the base of the washer . Sometimes, a hairpin, bobbypin, toothpick , or some other stiff object will make its way through the drain holes in your tub and lodge in the pump cavity keeping the pump impeller from spinning . If this is the case , you can gain access to the pump and remove the inlet hose (the hose between the tub base and pump) from the pump itself to look inside the pump cavity and use tweezers or a set of hemostats to remove the object. It will be pretty easy to see if something is there . If nothing is there , go ahead and remove the outlet hose from the pump after disconnecting the power of course , disconnect the electrical connector from the pump and remove the two screws or nuts that mount the pump. Replace it with a new one.
