The drain pump removes water out of the tub through the drain hose.
Failure Symptoms: When the drain pump fails you might experience poor or no drainage, or water leakage from the the unit.
How to Test: If you're experiencing water leakage, check the pump for cracks/damage that the water is leaking from. If the bearings are worn out they can possibly be the source of the leak, so check them as well. If the pump is the source of the leak, it should be replaced.
If you're experiencing poor or no drainage, check to make sure there is nothing clogging the pump. Sometimes small pieces of clothing can get caught in the pump, preventing proper drainage. If there is nothing obstructing the pump, but still noisy during the drain cycle, the pump could be defective and needs replaced.
Repair Tip: To prevent pump blockage, use a mesh laundry to wash small articles of clothing, such as socks.

Turns out that I didn't really need the pump at all... just the gaskets. But I rated you highly because you delivered the proper product quickly and hassle-free.
I ordered this part from thrifty appliance because of the price and warrant offered. This is the third pump for my machine, the pen pump lasted about ten years, the second pump (purchased from another online retailer) lasted 5 months and after two weeks attempting to contact the company with no result I ordered from thrifty appliance. The order shipped the same day and although I paid for 2 day shipping the part was received quickly. The part works as expected and only time will tell the longevity of the item.
After my local appliance dealer quoted me $140 and two days to get the needed drain pump replacement I searched the internet for the part and found this one here at Thrifty Appliance Parts LLC for under $30 dollars shipped. The part arrived via priority mail in two days and was a perfect fit replacement for my Kenmore washer. No more SUDS or F21 errors and a happy wife! Thank you Thrify!
