Kenmore Energy Washer front load - about 5 - 7 years old
I put 3 bathroom rugs in the washer and first I noticed all water on my floor so I think it was coming from where the black water hose attaches to the water pipe so I taped in with electrical tape.. Then, I started the machine again where I left it and then the water would not drain, at all....I took out the wet rugs and I noticed that alot of rug material seemed to be probably clogging something in the machine. I took a wet vac and vacuumed out the machine and noticed that alot of the rug material seemed to be stuck under the tub grid......help....what do I [email protected]

Re: Kenmore Energy Washer front load - about 5 - 7 years...
I really hate those little rubber pieces that come off of those rugs, they really gum up everything. Just for future reference try to wash those outside with a water hose and a scrub brush. It will save you lots of money in repairs.
As for your current problem try to get as much out of the tub as possible. Then you will have to remove the small kickplate on the bottom of the washer. Get you some towels and a maybe a flat pan to catch some water. The panel will have a few screws around it that will need to be removed. Once you have removed the panel you will see your pump. The front of the pump has a filter that can be unscrewed and removed for cleaning. Unscrew the filter and get ready to catch some water. Maybe as much as a couple gallons. Once you have cleaned it out put the filter back in the pump and leave the panel off. Run the washer throught another cycle and clean the pump out again. You may need to repeat this several times. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if you still have draing issues you could have a clogged drain and for that you may need a plumber. Well good luck to you and I hope I helped.

A couple of things come to mind,if the micro-processor senses the load is out of balance enough, it will control the RPMs(reveloutions per minute) or slow it down in order to avoid damage to the suspension system, so readjusting the spin speed manuallly probably would help. Although that machine should be able to handle 9 large towels easily! Next thing, have you cleaned out the trap inside the lower access panel, if it is restricted you will have draining problems. Good luck !
Clean the filter in the pump behind the bottom panel,but remember it's full of water,If it's on a pedestal you can take the pump loose from the mounting pull it out a little and put a small pail or bucket under it before you open the trap.if it isn't on a pedestal it's a bit more challenging unless your in a basement with a floor drain. Open it very slowly and let the water drain a little at a time don't take it all the way out or you'll be in for a flood....good luck
The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and
stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws
panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose
see.The white filter cover is right in front.
Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect
Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the
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
all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes
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.
its problably not able to balenbace the load of rugs, if the machine cant balance itwont go to high speed spin. in actuallity your probalby better off bringing the rugs to the laundry mats, especially if the are rubber backed, the rubber backing will come off clogging your pump assy, then your looking at replacing hte pump for a few hundred dollars, for a clean set of $30 bath rugs.
open the door though, put your hand around the rubber boot assy, run *** all aroundlooking for small tears, and or holes, if so replace it. only other thing to do is remove the lower access panel and watch it spin a load and youll be able to detect where te waters coming from
sounds likeyouve problably clogged your pump assy with the backing of that rug. all you can do is clean out the pump assy,
1. drain out as much water as you can(buckets, cups , etc)
2. the door comes of by removing 2 screws on the hinge, and remove the 2 screws on opposite side of hinge.
3. the front "U" shaped panel will kinda wiggle and pop off.
4. UNPLUG THE UNIT.LIVE WIRES!!!!!!!!!
5. youll see the pump assy 2/3 thirds the way back on righy side. youll need to remove the clamps holding the hose on and remve the debris from pump housing.when oyu relese that clamp theres gonna be some water still in hose so prepare for might be as much as a gallon or so. plus all the crap you got stuck un there!!!!
6. reassamble and start washing!!!
the hose may still be filled from last cycle.
try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
