Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore HE washing machine, model number 11047512601. A rubber part in the impeller for the pump is broken, and the pump makes a grinding noise when trying to drain. I took the impeller out and put the pump back in place, and of course it does not pump water, but the noise is gone. Is there any other problem I could be missing? There is no part number for the impeller on Sear's schematic of the washing machine. Do you sell an impeller with the gaskets inside that would fit this model? Thank you very much.

What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?


Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

Grinding sounds


Grinding sounds that last for longer than 3 minutes at a time are usually an indication of something in the wash pump. If the grinding is only for about 2 minutes at a time it would be something related to the drain pump.

It depends on the make and model on how to clean out the pump or drain pump. If you happen to have a tall tub Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool or Kenmore this link has instructions on how to do that.

The machine will not drain


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump, like the occasional stray piece of clothing, and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My kenmore elite He 5t wash machine is flashing F


This typically indicates slow drain condition. Check for any clogs or kinks in the drain line. Also check that the pump is not clogged and that no pump impeller blades are missing/broken and that the impeller moves freely. Any broken/missing blades or if the impeller won't turn freely will indicate a faulty pump. Hard objects can sometimes make it to the pump and cause damage. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore elite oasis F2 (and beeping _


This code indicates a pump issue. First, remove and clean the filter. Then you need to check out the pump. Take a flashlight and look into the suction port on the pump. Check the impeller for broken or missing blades and make sure that the impeller moves freely. If any blades are broken or missing or if it won't move freely, the pump will have to be replaced. Hopefully, it is just clogged, but no matter how diligent we are, some items like coins, tacks, pens/pencils, or other hard items make it into the washer and some can end up at the pump and can damage the impeller or clog up the pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer is making a grinding sound when draining water.


hi, this grinding sound is coming from the pump. the pump device seems to have a broken impeller that is located inside the pump. You will not be able to replace this internal part. This device is fixed and you will have to replace the entire pump assembly.

This will happen if some debris or coins make it threw the pump housing. these debris will settle in the pump housing near the impeller and it will grind while in operation or, draining procedure. the solid debris will eventually damage the impeller and break it off the drive bolt. this will all happen in time but, it usually starts with the minor grinding sound.

Kenmore 90 washer won't drain


Check first drain line or water pump to see if they are clogged.
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump.
