Question about Kenmore Elite 20972

2 Answers

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top

I bought a used Kenmore Elite top-loading washing machine. When I connected it to the water source and turned it on, the water ran out onto the floor (apparently from the bottom of the machine) as quickly as it ran in the top. I have checked hose connections and all seem to be tight and the hoses are in good condition.

Hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.

Door won't lock on top loading kenmore elite oasis washing machine


1. Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall.
2. Move the washer forward about 12 inches.
3. Lift the lid and grasp the front of the washer top with both hands.
4. Place your knee on the front of the cabinet and pull the washer top forward and up.

The lid lock mechanism is secured to the bottom of the washer top with two screws. Remove those screws and the wiring will be exposed. Unplug the harness from the old mechanism and connect to the new one.

Secure the new mechanism to the washer top and let the top down.
