Check your door boot, ours is doing the same thing. Found out there's a huge hole in the door boot seal.

The rubber seal is known as a bellow. If the bellow is torn, more than likely it IS the cause of your leak. Your only course of action is the replace it. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacements. Just type in your model (as you provided) and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8182119). It is not a cheap part, but it will cost you much more to have an appliance repair company install it for you. This is not a difficult repair, and you can accomplish this on your own if you follow these steps:

Some additional parts that normally do not need replaced, but you may consider just in case are the front and back clamps that hold the bellow in place. They are listed under the same heading as items 6 and 14. They don't cost that much and may consider them just in case you need them. In particular, the front clamp, can break or the spring becomes stretched. Inspect these items just to be sure.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS You may also try repairclinic.com for comparative pricing. They also carry the same parts (sometimes for less).

The problem is usually attrbuted to leak-by on your Water Inlet Valve (also known as a "Mixing Valve" on some models). The valve can become clogged or corroded with rust and sediment over time and not seal completely when shut off. This is especially true if you live in areas where you have hard water, or use well water. If the diaphragm inside the valve does not seat correctly, this will cause leak by. It may be very minute, but will become noticeable over a period of time. The washer does not have to be turned on for this to occur. You can try to remove the valve and clean it thoroughly to see if this will help, but if you are going to to go the route of removing the valve, it would make better sense to simply replace it instead of having to possibly go through the process twice. A replacement valve can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Cabinet" heading for item number 5 (part #285805). This is a fairly simple repair that is also inexpensive. To replace:

1. UNPLUG the appliance and shut off the water at the water taps.
2. Disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the panel directly above the washer top.
4. Remove the washer top panel.
5. The fill valve will be located in the left rear (as viewed from the front) behind the wash tub.
6. Remove the dispenser hose and electrical connectors from the water inlet valve.
7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the valve to the rear panel.
8. Reinstall new valve using the above steps in reverse order.

The repair is pretty straight forward. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS In the interim, to keep the tub from filling up with water, shut of the taps when not in use. This may buy you some time until you are able to replace the valve.

Kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap


We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

Water under stackable washer dryer


The front panel comes off and you will be able to trace the water source. These combo units spin immediatly and if the drain is slow the water will spin up over the edge of the tub during drain.

Kenmore 70 series is leaking water. Could it be the pump?


It depends on WHERE the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the FRONT area of the washer, the drain pump or drain hoses are suspect. If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, the water inlet hoses, water inlet valve, or dispenser hoses may be suspect. If the leak is coming from under the CENTER portion of the wash tub, the tub seal or wash tub may be suspect.

The first step is to remove the exterior washer case to gain access to view. The following link explains how to replace a water pump (if required) on your washer, but also includes all the steps necessary to access the washer interior:

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

Allow the washer to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn it off before unplugging and removing the washer casing. The washer will not run once you disconnect the lid switch connector, so you will need some water in the tub to see where the leak may be coming from.

NOTE: If the problem IS a leaking pump, these pumps are not serviceable and will need to replaced.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
