Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft. Portable Washer - won't drain

Hi, I have a Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft. Portable Washer (top loading) that won't drain. It pumps water in fine and agitates but then it just stops and clicks and hums. I have tried manually draining the water by removing the hose at the bottom and when the water is out, the washer will continue an spin.

Can anyone provide any advice on this situation? I would love to fix this myself if at all possible- so instructions would be amazing! And does anyone know where I can find a manual for the Kenmore 2.1 cu ft compact portable washer?

Thanks for any support!

    Nagyboo, you're totally right, there was a bunch of junk in the pump. I just had to be brave enough to turn the machine over and take it apart a little. Thanks for the response!

    I have the same problem - it appears to be draining (meaning water comes out of the hose into the sink) but when it's finished the clothes are still dripping wet, so I know it has not drained completely. Maybe the problem is in the spinning? it's not spinning hard enough? How could I fix that?

Probably something caught inthe pump. Will have to remove pump and take obstruction out. Only other thing I can think of is the pump ran tight and would have to be replaced

    I have the same problem with the water not draining, this is my 3rd sears machine and rather than pay the continued rising cost of sears maintenance I will get another brand.

Washer is full of water. drain is blocked with hair or lint i believe. washed some nasty stuff. wont drain. how do i clear the blockage? i think may be blocked inside washer. drain hose is very narrow...


If you can get a garden type water hose near there, try to carefully use it to blow the water backwards through the drain hose. Put the hose up to the drain hose end and wrap a rag tightly around it and turn the water slowley. This may free up any debris from the hose and pump. If anything comes out,clean it out of the tub before you turn it back on.

Kenmore portable washing machine won't drain all the way


most common cause is there is a sock or other small item in the inlet hose from the drum to the pump, restricing water flow and the normal time allowed in timer cycle is not enough
open the cabinet as described elsewhere, I am just too laxy to type it at the moment.
examine the short hose from the drum to the pump, and unblock it
