My Kenmore le quit pumping water. I have removed pump but am not sure if that is the problem. Impeller turns but with resistance, as in you can spin it by hand but after 1/2 revolution freely then it slows. Cant afford to replace parts that are not bad. Any suggestions?
The most likely cause would be a bad drain pump motor. When you spin the impeller is should not spin real free. It should spin then kinda bounce as it is a magnetic drive motor. If the pump impeller is spinning freely then this would be the cause of failure.

My washer water not drainning. What part should I need?
Answer Hello San. You need to check and see if the pump is clogged. If not, then you will need to replace the drain pump 4681EA2001T on the unit.
I have a model WM2688HWM. I have read the questions and answers here about installation and wiring for pump- part number AP5328388 but is there a way you can contact me back with instructions that are a little more specific? Also if there is a wiring diagram or service manual available that would also be very helpful. Thank you.
Answer Hello Dan,
The drain pump comes of by holding the locking tab back and unscrew the pump from its' mounting position. The new one goes in by reversing this procedure. There are only two wires and since the motor is ac powered and is not polarized, the wires can be swapped and the unit will operate the exact same way as if the wires were not crossed.
