Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
The following link should give you the steps necessary to remove the exterior washer casing to inspect the interior:
The instructions are for replacing the washer pump, but the steps to gain access to the interior are the same. If the leak is coming from the FRONT of the washer, check the pump and drain hoses for loose connections. If the pump is leaking, it is not repairable (sealed unit) and must be replaced. If the leak is coming from UNDER THE WASH TUB, this is a symptm of a leaking tub seal, or cracked tub. This requires removal of the wash basket to replace either part. If the leak is coming from the SIDE of the wash tub after it starts to fill, check the air dome hose to ensure it is still attached and not leaking. This is a small air hose that connects to the side of the wash tub and runs to your pressure switch. It sometimes becomes loose or disconnected and leaks. If the leak is coming from the BACK of the washer, check the fill hoses and water inlet valve hoses. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance, please let me know.
