SOURCE: washer leaks water
The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.

You probably have a faulty heating coil, or thermostats.
If you plan to repair it yourself, remove the back of the machine, locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside of the air tube is where you will find the heating coil, and thermostats.
Check your heating coil with a continuity meter across the two terminals.
I hope this helps

Good Morning, I would be looking at the motor or if it has a door switch that is intermitent, that would cause it to not come on all of the time. It is a switch that is mounted by where the door latches and is depressed when door is shut.It will not start if the switch is starting to fail.You can also remove the back and check for lint build up on all of the safety's as these get covered and will cause it not to start all of the time.I doubt the motor is at fault, because it runs and doesnt stop from over heating. It could also be the push button start switch, it has been pushed for 14 years and maybe worn, contacts in it.I would remove it, mark the wires and give it a good look over. This is where the problem starts, so replace it and you should be up and running. But do check everything I have mentioned as the lint is probably bad. Let me know and best of luck to you. Sincerely,
