Last time I was here I could have sworn it was the Samurai site, so I guess it's been a bit-
My clothes washer, a Kenmore HE3t, purchased in 2002.
I recently replaced the drain motor, which had started to fail but would run (well, rather flounder, but it would try to run).
I still had problems of very slow draining. I found in the rubber boot that runs from the back of the pump assembly up to the tub we had a massive amount of junk - enough to clog the ball valve and then perhaps several more times over, besides the two children's socks in there (Yes, at one point I had to replace the large boot that seals off the tub).
Before this discovery there were many multiple consecutive attempts at spin-drain - I mention this for though not likely, it is possible that I fried the new non-OEM motor.
Now that the huge clog is removed I find the washer not operating; I had numerous various error codes such as FH and F02 and SUDS and so on, all pointing towards the drainaige system (FH can also be problems with the anti-siphon as I read, not only cold water pressure or pressure sensor).
I ran the diagnostic and found everything operating correctly EXCEPT the drain pump not engaging. I hooked in the other old drain-pump and found it was not even turning on either - neither had so much as the hum of energized coils.
I did have to wrestle almost violently when dealing with those horrible spring hose clamps (If curses take hold, I regret the amount I cursed those who chose sping clamps for this purpose instead of screw clamps; I must get clamp pliers) that secure the rubber boot from the pump assembly to the tub, so I tried to check all connections. They appear correct and secure throughout the washer, but I can not be 100% certain.
What would cause electricity to not flow to the pump and how should I proceed to test this/these?
And other thoughts on the matter?
Please forgive my urgency, not only have I my wife, but four teen-aged daughters to deal with.
