    Default kenmore elite draining probs

    opps i forgot to say it is a calypso. hello i talked a while back about a Leaky ring around the top of the washer which was a small leak now i had a code fl come up and i drained the washer and got it to agitate and run tell when it is supposed to drain one time i didn't get enough water out i guess then i got a ld i know what the fl and ld codes are my question is . do you access the pump from the bottom of the washer i got the ft off but don't look like you can get it off ? and the last time i could smell the pump motor get hot to hot to touch so i turned it off so i hope fully didnt burn out the pump . would some thing get in the pump to seize it ? how much for a new pump? or impeller if that is the only prob thanks kelly

    Hi Kelly, Welcome Back.

    Just to keep everyone up to speed, here's the model# of your Kenmore Calypso washer from your previous posts:
    Model# 110.22062100

    Yes, I've seen lots of these older style pancake water pumps get clogged easy, they have now upgraded the water pumps to these:
    Here's the upgraded pump you can order:
    Part#285990

    285990


    Here's a help link:

    Here's the repair manual that shows you how to access the water pump:

    thanks jake i tried to clean the hair and strings out of the impeller it worked for 5 loads then it did the same thing . so i am going to get a new pump for it. the manual for the whirlpool is a newer model . did whirlpool buy out Kenmore ? is that why the different names? i still haven't looked at the fridge yet . maybe some day lol thanks again kelly

    The Kenmore models starting starting with model#110 are always made by Whirlpool.

    Yup, Kenmore has a contract with Whirlpool to make their washers, So thats why it says Kenmore, but its built by Whirlpool.
