Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
After finishing laundry on Sunday, I left the washing machine door open to try to prevent a recurrence of that horrible odor that sometimes permeates a load of laundry. Late Tuesday night, I traced the water leaking from the ceiling of our garage up into the second floor laundry room where I discovered the bottom of the washing machine tub was full of water and a small stream was trickling out of the open door. Water had puddled on the floor and was making its way down through the first floor ceiling. I turned the water valves off at the wall, ran the drain cycle and unplugged the machine. Now what? Any ideas on why water would be entering the machine even though the machine was off and the door was open (unlatched)? The only thing I've done differently lately is cleaning the rim under the rubber boot after running a long, hot bleach cycle without clothes in hopes of mitigating the odor problem. The washing machine is a Kenmore Elite HE 3t (110-44921-300) purchased in 2004.
Sounds like a bad water inlet valve stuck open and permitting watertto enter even though not on, untill you replace the valve turn off water between uses part number 8181694
