Regardless of model, this is probably a drain pump problem. With many Kenmore washers, there is a pump trap that can become plugged. Remove the washer's bottom front panel, if there is a white drain pump casing, turn out the pump trap counter-clockwise, making sure to have a bucket to catch the water. Check and clean the trap, and try to spin the pump impeller, if the pump impeller is stuck, something may actually be stuck in the impeller. If the impeller feels wobbly, you will want to just replace the drain pump entirely. Depending on the model, there may just be a hose connecting directly to the pump, with no trap available, just pull the hose off and check for an item plugging the pump. With any model, there will be WATER that will POUR out. Be prepared.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

Kenmore front loader trouble


If it is shutting off after a few seconds is the washer filling with water. If not you may need a water valve. If it fills with water then stops you may have a bad control and $350.00 is not really to bad for that repair. Besides if he is wrong he is stuck with the part not you. If he is correct then your washer is fixed and $350 is alot better than $1200.00 for a new one, so check that water and good luck to you. Mike

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
