Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, your washer started leaking from the bottom after you moved it outside with a dolly you cant tell where it is coming from.

I had a client the other day with the same problem and it ended up that one of the water supply tubes were loose underneath.
And only needed to be tightened. Now you may have A hole or crack in the tube too!
So inspect it when you tighten it. You will need to people to check this!
check if you fell or see water from any other parts when you inspect below!
Be very careful and do not inspect the washer alone.
make sure the washer is turned off and unplugged before you atempt to do anything with your washer.
Let me know what you find!

How old is the washer ?
Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old washer

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you,
Huuum

Might be it is your pump. or pump hose. That is the area where the pump is. Remove the 3 T-20 star drive screws that hold the service panel on so that you can gain access and look for the leak is what I would do.

How do I get the outside cover of my Crosley CW6000W to replace the belt?


The belt is accessible from the bottom. Tilt the machine with a dolly [or something] and stack some 2x4's to hold it in a propped position, or lay it on it's side [get help if you can]. Good Luck.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath


Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

How do I prep my Kenmore Elite He5t washer for move to new house


Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.
