So here we go, another project. This Kenmore has an issue in draining. After it washes or rinses, it always leaves some water behind in the basket, not a whole lot, I'd say like 1/8 of a basket full. If I put it into spin 2 or 3 times afterwards, it will empty out. The flow out of the hose is weak. So, bad pump, obstruction or something else? Everything else works fine.

Louie, looks like a very nicely featured Kenmore--even 6 speed combinations.  How did you come across this?

I hope Louie. you are not taking it up to the 19th floor. You must have an elevator.

Once it's all fixed up you can peel the panel protector off and it will be like a brand new machine!

check for obstructions first....

neutral drain should empty the tub out in plenty of time before spin begins, should be high spped

replace pump as a last resort...

WOW! Beautiful washer!

A video of it draining would be helpful in determining the problem. The WP DD pumps are quite powerful and should drain the tub in just over a minute.
After this issue is fixed I see no reason that this excellent washer should not work for many more years.

Reminds me of my friend Brenda (RIP, dear Brenda).  She bought a new Whirly dryer and thought the blue console was super-spiffy.  Then her daughter comes along and peels off the blue ...

I discovered there was a expletive, expletive and another filthy expletive  kink in the damn drain hose. That's why it wasn't draining fully. And I know better, I know these rubber hoses can kink over time, but nooooo, went straight for the water pump. Anyway, will be trying it out tomorrow. Stay tuned.
