No check valve on water pump

No check valve on water pump

In the Kenmore HE3 front load washer,I noticed that there is no check valve after the drain water pump. Would a check valve after the pump benefit the washer - keep more dirty water out? Prevent wash from smelling?

ANSWERS:

There is a Check Valve / FLAPPER on the pump Outlet... It Is A 1" Round, Flat Piece Of Rubber That Works Like The FLAPPER In Your Toilet... If you do not see this Flapper on your pump, it has washed down the drain... It is only held on by a Rubber Band like piece on the flapper itself...
