No drain, SUD code, drain pump hum, Kenmore model 110.44832 200 HE3t,

5 posts in this topic

Hello all knowing masters of appliantology:

My Kenmore HE3T front load washer model 110.44832 200 will spin in (drain/spin cycle),but won't drain, I haven't attempted any other cycle since the washer quit in the middle of a wash load yesterday. The display showed (SUd), and after attempting the drain/spin option I was greeted with the control lock turning on. Unpluging the machine cleared the control lock feature.

I pulled the strainer at the bottom and cleaned it but it didn't have much in it. I also replaced the hose to the (analog water level pressure sensor) in hopes of a cheap fix, but to no avail. I pulled the drain pump and noted the impeller gets resistance every half rotation. I turned it both directions and the stiff spots go somewhat easier, but are still very noticable. I removed the analog water level pressure sensor, and applied slight vacuum, then pressure to the port and noted the thingamajig inside the AWLPS went back to original position after vacuum was removed, but when pressure was removed, the thingamajig stuck where the pressure put it. Which path shall the lowly grasshopper take to see the light again.

All help will be greatly appriciated!!

Either something stuck in the drain pump or drain hose or a bad pump. The action of the impeller you describe is correct for this pump-- it has magnetic poles. See if you have hear the soft, gentle hum of the drain pump motor trying to run. Can also check foe 120vac to the drain pump motor. Also, remove the drain hose off the pump and blow through it. Should clear an initial slug of water and then is should blow free.

Thank you much for the quick response!!

I will check for 110V at the pump, and then check for blockage in the drain line from the pump up to the wall. I had taken the pump off, but didn't notice any blockage in the impeller area. The strainer had caught a bra underwire but no real blockage. Will keep you posted. Thank You for the wisdom O Wiise One!!

Update: The pump had 127 VAC applied during Drain/Spin, I cleared all the drain lines from the tub boot to the wall, removed the pump and attached an appliance cord. The pump vibrates. but doesn't spin. Even reversing the polarity didn't make the impeller spin! Looks like a new drain pump is in order. I greatly appreciate all the assistance!
