Kenmore washer won't drain. I can't get the pump off the motor shaft (clips are removed by the way!) but it won't wrench loose even using a screwdriver. Don't see anything inside the drain hoses but there seems to be a rubber flap inside the pump(maybe it's supposed to be there) but no obstruction. Also, the lid switch actuator is in a constant downward position. After removing the cabinet and getting a closer look, it doesn't appear to be broke,just hangs downward too far where the prong on the washer lid won't depress it (in other words to bypass the lid switch to see if the washer will drain.No option,manual water bail out. How does one know to replace the pump just by looking at it?. it say's as one of the laws on here not to replace something unless you know it's broken. Logical deduction points to pump replacement but than theres this goofy lid switch actuator situation that may not allow for water drainage regardless of pump situation.

No model number, so can only give some "general" comments:

1) Pump has been leaking and is rusted to the motor shaft. The "flap" is meant to be there. Smash the old pump off, thoroughly clean the motor shaft before trying to fit the new one.

2) Lid switch sounds as if it's broken. Some types of these had an issue with the mounting holes cracking in half, but we can't be more specific without the model number.

Older direct drive model.



What MAY have happened is that the piece where the "prong" on the lid is has bent upwards. Seen this on some of these old machines. This is not the type of lid switch which is prone to breakage that I referred to earlier. Compare what you have to the picture.
