Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

Washer wabbles and leaks

I have a Kenmore 23822100 top load washer that was purchased in December of 2002. It currently has two problems:

1) It consistently wabbles (moving across the floor) while in the spin phase.

2) It occasionally leaks water under the base of the machine

I don't know much about washers, but I'm guessing a spring is weak. I don't know how to open up the washer to look inside though.

Any recommendations on how to proceed?

Tilt the machine forward so the rear feet come off the ground, then set it down, this will reset your feet to level. if problem persists, you can lean the washer on its back and inspect the suspension with a light.

Washer will not spin. water drains. motor runs. Kenmore 80 series mod # 23822100 please help thanks


With old washers and with new washers sometimes you have to get in there and tighten the belt or replace the belt. Your problem sounds like this to me.Your question was posted sometime ago and you probably found your problem. If not please get back to me and I will be happy to help some more. GOOD LUCK.

Fills with water and then nothing kenmore washer model 23822100 type 111


Top load machines will fill with water while the lid is open. Your problem starts when you close your lid. NOTHING happens. I believe this to be your LID SWITCH . Replace or have replaced and you should be OK. GOOD LUCK.

The machine is not spinning or tumbling, i went through the diagnostic test and that was the only thing it did not do. my understanding is that it is a belt that should be the problem how do i get at it?


I have the same washer and problem. I've had mine for just over five years with no problems, but I've had other top loading washers for as many as 12 years. I solved the problem with the Kenmore 44042 as follows:

1. Remove the washer from the laundry room and move it to the garage.
2. Go to Lowe's and purchase a Roper top loading washer for $300.
3. Install the new Roper in place of the Kenmore 44042.
4. Create and sign an agreement with yourself to never purchase another Kenmore product.

Kenmore top load portable washer, model 110.42722200


i had same prob. at my daughters house, similar model. first time a hose popped off the top(i removed the lid), later i noticed leaks because my son in law was using oxy clean and it foamed over. my advice is, put machine on its side and look for loose/popped off hoses, dont use too much soap or additives, which will trick the water level sensor or just pour over that little drum

Water leak on occasion front load washer purchased around 2002/03


You need to remove the kick panel (under the front door). There are two screws at the very bottom of the kick panel, one in each corner.
This will give you visibility to see where the leak is coming from.
On the right hand side is the drain pump. The black hose goes from the pump,out the rear and into your drain pipe. It is secured by a clamp and is one possible source of leak.
If that connection is dry, look underneath the tub where the two parts, front and back of drum, come together. there is an o ring sealing the two sections and this is another source of water leak. (major problem is this is leaking)
Failing this you will just have to trace the source of the leak. You may have to take off the top of the washer to check the water inlet hoses which run on the top of the machine but would still show as a leak under the machine. Good luck.
