Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
First if you have a wet vac pull the drain hose out of the drain spout and use the vac to pull the water out of the washer through the drain hose.If not you will need a pair of radiator hose clamps from the auto parts store. Pull the screws from the lower panel at the front of the washer and remove it.in side you will see a rubber hose coming down from the tub to the drain pump. Put the radiator hose clamp there if you didn't have a shop vac.On the front of the pump is a round part with a handle turn that and remove the pump filter .Clean any foreign objects out of the pump and look inside the pump to make sure no impeller blades are broken if any are you will have to replace the pump. put the filter back in and tighten it. If you had to use the hose clamp remove it now.reassemble and don't forget to give the tech his four boxes if this fixes it

The pump on my HE3 stopped working as well. I took it apart and inspected the pump and found that the shaft that connects to the impellers was rotating inside the motor core. I mixed up some 10 minute epoxy and put the cement on the shaft, pressed the shaft back inside the motor core and let it dry overnight. The next day the pump worked like a charm.

Tips for a great answer:
wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to
rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as
to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin. check the output to the drain valve if absent the control board is a suspect, if not clean the drain pump;
that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check
the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the
valve or motor or pump.
