Please help.  I have had a very few issues with my Kenmore 417 (purchased in 2000) not completely spinning and a couple of times not spinning. Thought problems were uneven loads.   Also, I know not to use much liquid detergent.   However, just today, I ran a load of laundry-- large table cloth and 8 placemats.  The placemats stated hand wash....and had some sort of paper backing I did not realize they had.  I noticed that the wash was sudsing up more than I have ever seen before.  Did not use anymore liquid detergent than I normally due.  I was very concerned with all the suds, making note when the load was done, to wash again with no detergent.  BUT.... no spin and no draining of water!!!!  Eventually after trying over and over to get a drain or spin without success by trying other cycles, I pulled out the sudsy laundry (noted there was paper backing coming off the placemats)  and emptied the water from the washer by hand.  I then attempted a minimum of 5 more empty loads.  Each time, since no drain nor spin, I emptied the washer by hand.  The very last load did not have anymore suds!  After each load I wiped down the drum.  What could cause no draining and then no spin?  Thanks!

You need to pull off the lower front panel and see if the pump is running. Check for 120v to the pump power wires. Make sure the pump suction boot and discharge hose are free and clear. Check integrity of pump impeller vanes. Replace pump if it's not running or if the impeller is boogared up.

i agree but these are some very durable pumps and can be cleaned out however there is still a lot of water in the unit so beware.
