Kenmore Washing Machine Drain Pump Replacement

As with any repair, be sure you’ve unplugged the appliance before beginning. Your first step is to move the control panel out of the way.  To do this, remove the screws found at either end.  On some models these screws may be located in the rear panel or they may be covered by plastic end caps.  Pull the end cap off from the top to access the screw. Remove both screws and rotate the panel up.

Some models use clips instead of screws to secure the control panel.  Insert a putty knife between the control panel and the cabinet to release the clips. Unplug the wire connector and snap out the spring clips using a flat head screw driver.  Tilt the cabinet toward you, slide it forward and remove.  Now unsnap the retainer clips holding the old drain pump on and wiggle the pump off of the motor shaft.

Using pliers, release the clamps to remove the two hoses from the drain pump. Be prepared for water to spill out of the hoses.

Set the old pump aside.  You’re now ready to install the new drain pump.

Slide the hoses over the ports of the new pump and secure them with the clamps.  Align the motor shaft with the pump and slide the pump on.  Reinstall both pump clips. Now reinstall the cabinet.

The front edge of the cabinet slides underneath the base frame.  Use your foot to push it into position.  Align the two notches in each side of the cabinet with the tabs on each side of the base frame.  Now ease the cabinet to match up with the rear panel.

Reinstall the spring clips, reattach the wire connector, rotate the control panel down and lock the clips into place or reinstall the two screws if applicable to your model. Replace the end caps by aligning the tab with the slot at the bottom and snapping the cap into position.

You are now ready to plug the appliance back in to make sure it’s functioning properly now that you’ve successfully completed your Kenmore washer repair yourself.
