Turns out the washer was fine. The drain pipe running from the house to the city sewer line was clogged causing the water to back up. One call to Roto-Rooter and problem solved.

I think your problem could more of a plumbing or installation issue, rather than a problem with your washer. Please refer to the link below for advice on basic washer installation tips.

You may need to double check your drain line to ensure it is not too long, it is installed at the correct height, and that it has the required air gap to drain properly. Please post back if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

Washer works fine until it starts filling on the rinse cycle, then the water just flows out of the drain. Last night the water was running for 3 hours, before I realized it. The tub fills fine when it is...


Make sure the drain hose is not sealed to the drain pipe, and that the hose is not shoved into the drain allowing the end of the hose to reach the trap. That will prevent the machine from syphoning out the rinse water as it fills.

F21 clogged hose water left in the washer after spin cycle is done how do I get the hose off the washer and then how do i check if the clog is on the in side


Yoy will need to take off the bottom cover (3 star screws), locate the drain pump at front (the drain hose goes to it). It has a strainer in it which you turn counterclockwise to remove this will allow you to clean it out. Then one of the three tumbling blades inside can be removed to clean out the boot to the drain pump. Good luck!

Kenmore topload washing machine that wont switch to drain


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/index.action

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

Then, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Normally, this would appear to be a Lid Switch or Neutral Drain problem BUT since it is re-filling , it sounds like a Timer problem.

See the Service Manual for how to test / replace the timer.

Washer is Kenmore He2 model # 110.46462501


Hi,
It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

I have a Kenmore N2. What would make my front load washer fill back up with some water after the drain and spin cycle is complete?? IF I let the washer go until it's done and go downstairs to take out,...


first, run a rinse,drain & spin cycle. after it finishes filling, shut the water supply (taps) off. If water enters the washer after the drain, it has to be sifoning back in from the DRAIN hose. Check to see if the drain hose is not going up above the washer more than a few inches

Kenmore HE3 washer stopped at 11 minutes left in cycle and just hums. Won't drain rest of water or spin out. Help!


Something must be stuck in your pump's impeller and not allowing to spin and send the water down the drain. Remove the rubber boot seal and check the impeller for obstructions. The pump is located at the base of the washer on the right side.

Kenmore 2 Way Tumble Action Front Load Washer


no thats two different problems. The rubber piece (boot) forms a seal to prevent the water from leaking out, that should be replaced. Water might have leaked and ruined the pump. At the end of all cycles is there still water in the tub? If so your pump is either clogged or has gone bad, and thats why the washer wont go into extract.
