Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
The machine leaks water from the dispenser unit as it is trying to fill the machine with water. it is like it is plugged up, but if a small bit of water is left it will drain into the machine, I have turned the water pressure down, but it still overflows. HELP
My 2 year old washer is dong the same thing. I had a technician come out and look at it and there is a piece of clothing between the inner and outer drums and it is also clogging the hose that lets water into the drum, so it pours out under the detergent dispenser.
The technician (not from Sears) says it will cost $450 to replace the drums and that I should scrap the washer.
He suggested that I might be able to remove the lip seal and if I am real lucky I might be able to pull the garment out, but he did not think it was likely.
He also said that this would be an easy fix with a top loader and tha I should buy a top loader!
Unfortunately - some repairs are expensive (labor wise) and not financially sound to repair.
