Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer Drain Hose Cleaning

Hello,

I need to clean the Drain Hose of my Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer. I have looked in the manuals but I can't find the instructions on how to go about doing it. What I was washing shed its fiber in the washer and now the drain hose is clogged. I got an error F03 and have already tried running the empty washer to try and get rid of the clog but that did not work. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Try this link for step-by-step instructions. More than likely you will have to clean the drain pump as well.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are having trouble draining the water from the wash tub, and cannot get it to drain with a shop vac, you can drain it directly from the tub. If you don't own a shop vac, you may have to bail. If your drain pump does not have a clean out trap, remove the inlet and outlet hoses to access the inside of the drain pump. Inspect the pump impeller for obstructions and/or damage. If the water will not drain when you try to pull a vacuum on the drain line, you may have to disconnect the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub. In some front loaders, there is a ball valve in the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. This ball can act as a collection pint from lint and debris. You will need to remove the hoses from the bottom of the wash tub to clean this area. I would recommend doing this as a LAST resort. Often, it can be difficult to reconnect this hose to the tub and get it to seal correctly. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.

    PS Don't forget to check the standpipe. You may also have a clog in your plumbing.

What does the trouble code f2 mean for the kenmore elite 4t washing machine?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Error code 20

I searched other similar models because mine was not shown. I found a similar problem with the solution provided - took off the front bottom panel, detatched the pump and hose and pulled out the small sock that was blocking the pump.

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.
