Washer Leaking from left front...

I have a Kenmore top loading washer, 80 series, and sometimes, not always, I see water leaking from the left front of the machine, usually after it has completed a wash cycle.  What could be the problem?  Machine is approximately two years old.

That would be your drain pump and/or drain hoses. You will need to access the inside of the washer by removing the outside casing to get a good view. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

The link explains how to replace the pump. Although you may not have a bad pump, it gives all the steps necessary to disassemble the washer to get to it. I would recommend you fill the tub about a third of the way then shut the washer off. This will fill the tub enough to determine where the leak may be coming from. Check both drain hoses for cracks or splits and make sure the clamps are tight. If the pump is leaking, it is NOT repairable. These are sealed units and will require replacing if damaged. You can purchase a new pump (if needed) at repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number and the pump should be listed as item number 3296 (part number 3363394).

This a simple job that requires not special tools to accomplish. I hope you find this information helpful.

Could be a tub seal leaking (not likely), or water pump leaking (very common), cracked outer tub, leaking hose. You would really need to take washer cabinet off machine to be able to see where it's actually leaking.

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

KENMORE SERIES 80 WASHER


There is three things on this machine that concern me. Last week I rebuilt a series 80 and it did the same thing, mostly on perm press. It turned out the timer was fine and the mechanical had not been rebuilt in years. Because of this the motor could not spin fast enough to fling the water plus the pump was leaking. I need three things from you. Is leaking water and oil when looking under the machine, does the motor hum loud even when functioning normally and when its spinning lift the lid, is it still rotating after a quick count to 7? Drop me a line I would like to help.
