Kenmore Washing Machine Overflow Question
Asked Oct 24, 2005, 02:39 PM
I just found this forum, and I'm really glad I did. I hope someone here can help me figure out this problem.
I have a 3 year old Kenmore 2-Speed washer and it washes clothes just fine. The only problem is that it overflows when the water is draining. When this first began to happen, I had a plumber come out. He unclogged the drains and told me to put a lint catcher on the end of the washer's hose so the lint would not continue to go down the drain and clog it again.
This worked fine for a long time. I just had to occasionally change the catchers and had no problems with overflowing. Well, recently, it's gotten to the point where the machine overflows every wash, because it seems like the lint catchers get full 2 to 3 times per wash. I have to keep rotating it so the washer won't overflow.
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this so I don't have to babysit the washer? It is a hassle.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
