Kenmore 70 series - not draining

My washing machine is not draining. I checked the hose and it is not blocked, I believe it is either the switch or the pump. Last week while on the spin cycle I opened the washer and it did not stop spinning like it normally does. It is fine during the wash cycle, but it will just click and stop when it gets to the drain portion. It is only 8 years old as well, so I hate to buy a new one if this can be fixed at a reasonable price. Any advice?

On your console there is two side panels that pop off from the top and two screws to remove and then swing the console back. You will notice a molex plug going into the washer on the right hane side. Unplug the machine and the top portion of that plug. Get a meter for continuity and if it beeps with a open lid or not when closed I would replace the switch.

How do you replace the lid switch on a Kenmore 70 series washing machine


Hi.

Check for drain blockage at the filter. Check setting of drain hose at the back. If there is no drain problem check pressure switch, central control unit and pump motor.

Kenmore series 70 will not fill


Ive only run across this a couple of times in my years of appliance repair. This sounds like you do not have an air gap on the drain hose. Where the hose hangs into the wall drain pipe make sure you do not have that sealed air tight with duct tape around it or something. It needs to have a gap all the way around the hose and just hang freely. If it is sealed off then it creates a siphon effect and sucks the water right out of the washer tub into the drain.. Hope this helps.. Thanks

Water won't drain


This is usually caused by the lid safety switch. When the switch malfunctions, The washer believes the lid is open and the washer will not spin or empty. The switch is intended to prevent injury during the spin cycle. The timer could be bad but it is usually the switch..

ck lid switch blocked pump would not prevent spin unless it was locked up then probably wouldn't agitate either
