Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
My washer works fine, but i hear it dripping on the floor, and there is a puddle. I think the pump is leaking cause the hoses are all dry. I dont know what to do. Is it something i could fix myself?
This can be very simple problem to diagnose and repair. You will need to remove the exterior cabinet in order to inspect the interior of the washer thoroughly. The following link explains how:
I know the link explains how to replace the pump (that may or may not be your problem), but the steps to remove the cabinet are the same. If the pump is leaking it is NOT repairable. These are sealed units. Make sure all the hose clamps are snug and not leaking as well. If the washer is leaking under the wash tub (in the center near transmission) this is more than likely your tub seal. This is also a very repairable problem with some guidance. Let me know what you find and what your intentions are. I hope this helps you.

When you are doing your laundry and you notice water on the floor that should not be there. A moderately handy homeowner will be able to identify and fix many kinds of leaks. Doing the service your self can save you the cost and hassle of having a service technician come out. Small leaks lead to large ones quickly, and that can result in ruined flooring and the possibility of mold growth. Fix most leaks in a day or less, with purchased parts from supply houses or home improvement stores.
Here are Instructions and tools Needed to solve the problem
1 Find the source of the leak. Turn on the machine while it is empty, and then look behind it with a flashlight while the tub is filling. Pay close attention to the hoses, and look for drips or running water. Some drips may start out slow, but gain momentum with continued water pressure.
2 Turn the water off. Often, if the water is leaking from the fitting where the hose attaches to the tap in the wall, you need to replace the hose gaskets. Unscrew the hose from the tap by hand or by using an adjustable wrench. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the old gasket out. Place a new gasket in the hose connection where the old one was removed.
3 Turn the water on, and check for leaks again. If a leak is at the fitting or elsewhere on the hose itself, replace the entire hose and gasket assembly. Turn the water on again, and check for leaks. If the machine still leaks, check your work, and then look for other causes.
2. Pump Replacement 1Move the dial to the end of the wash cycle to drain the water from the tub. Turn the water off at the wall supply taps.
2 Remove the top of the washer. In many models, the top pops up when you apply upward pressure to the front of the washer at the joint. Sometimes, you may have to remove part of the instrument panel, which is attached with screws.
3 Look into the cabinet around the tub to find the pump. Pumps are either direct-drive or belt-driven. If you see a belt, you have a belt-driven pump. If there is no belt, it is a direct-drive pump. Remove water lines, and take out the old pump. Replace with a new pump, reattach water lines, and reattach the belt, if necessary. Turn on the water, and check for leaks.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.
