I have Kenmore elite washing machine model: 11045088401. It started leaking water from the drain pump. How would I fix it?

I opened the front cover and noted that water dripping from drain pump when pump is draining water during rinse cycle.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Kenmore Elite HE3 - Washer stopped - door locked - did not drain and spin - Getting error message F02


  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer.
  3. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
  4. You can see a diagram of the pump at http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drain-Pump/1200164.
  5. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap.
  6. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise.
  7. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand).
  8. Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface.
  9. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly.
  10. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. If the error comes back, you may need to replace your drain pump.
  11. Replace the kick panel if none are found.

Can't get drain pump cover to stop leaking!


Check to make sure the o-ring (if equipped with one) is still intact and not rolled or torn. Apply a thin film of petrolium jelly on the threads of the cap and tighten until snug. Carefully grip the handle with a pair of channel locks or pliers and give the cap another 1/4 turn and it should seal. If the cap has an open style handle, use a screwdriver to insert in the handle to give it the last turn to tighten. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

Will not drain


If the drain lines are clear, test the drain pump, and see that drain pump is not clogged by removing it and cleaning.

If the drain pump is fine, then it is probably a defective control timer.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer keeps filling with water


The inlet valve will need to be replaced. Its a fairly simple procedure and a pretty inexpensive part.
