Water leaking from white plastic peice under washer

There is water leaking badly from white plastic peice under washer. Husband removed peice for closer inspection. There isn't a hole but the water is coming from around an area that is sealed with some kind of hard glue looking substance. Can the area be re-sealed or does the part need to be replaced (or the entire washer)?

If this piece had 2 hoses attached and slides onto the motor, then it is the pump. you will need to replace it. Part # 3363394 available both new (27.99) and used (9.99) from timerking.com Hope this helps!

There is water leaking out of the bottom of the washing machine


I would check to see if the pump is leaking. Tilt the washer up and put on two peices of 2x4. Shine a trouble lite under washer and take a mirror to look under the washer. Fill 1/2 full of water and advance timer to the spin cycle. Observe to see where the water is comming from. The pump is located at the front of the washer.
If water is leaking from the pump. Replace pump.

Water was leaking out of the machine. My husband


Hi,

If I got the issue correct the washing machine is leaking specially from the in front of your top loading washing machine.

Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.


1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.

2) Determine whether the machine is overwashing, which can cause the machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-washing variety.

3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repair person.

Kenmore Washer leaks


When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Washing Machine stops and leaks


A Clothes Washer with the complaint "Leaks in Front" (on floor) can be;

Defective Water-Pump (Very common of non-belt models) - Many water-pumps become defective due to the constant wear and misc. items becoming lodged (coins, necklaces, shoe laces, screws, etc.) or breaking the plastic housing or connections. The water pump is fairly simply to replace and is located on the inside front of the machine.

The water pump is typically a white or off white plastic and will have (2) black drain hoses connected; one coming from the tub and the other going to the drain out the back/rear of the machine. Electric pumps with typically of 2 wires going to and connected to the pump. ** Note: When disconnecting and removing the water-pump, becareful of water remaining in tub that may come shooting/flowing out.

Kenmore washer, elite 70 series is leaking water on floor


the hose from the drum to the pump, and from the pump to the drain, are at the front,
Movement of the drum during wash cycles, wears the short hose between drum and pump and it develops cracks, eventually a wash load of any size will finally cause one of the cracks to penetrate through the rubber, and constant drip occurs.
Its an easy fix, no more than screwdrivers needed.
the local parts guy will have the hose, even if it is labelled ge frididaire whirlpool the same hose is common to many makes and models

  • turn off water unplug washer
  • pop the endcaps off the control panel, and completely remove the phillips head screw under each endcap dec762a.jpg
  • lilft the control panel ~1inch and flip it over the back of the washer,
    (do not dislodge the water level sensing hose or we'll be back to fix it later, hinges are plastic, dont bust em)
  • remove the two brass clips under the control panel
    (note position for reinstall)
  • remove lid switch connector
  • lift entire body up ~1 inch and remove forward
  • motor pump hoses gearbox are now exposed.
examine hose from drum to pump, and from pump to cabinet rear,
replace cracked and crazed hoses.
reassemble in reverse order

Great question, here is your answer. You have to open the console (usually 2 screws in the front or back where the console meets the top of the washer) Pull the bottom of the console towards you and swing it up. Remove the 2 brass colored clips underneath by pushing down with a large screwdriver at the point where it goes into the top of the machine and press down while simultaniously pushing towards the rear. Now there will be a connector with a white, green and gray wires in it. Unplug this connector. Now tilt the top of the washer towards you (the top, front and sides all come off as one assembly) The washer will fill with water, but you will not be able to drain it unless you install a wire between the white and gray wires on the machine side. ( I would do this with the unit un-plugged and make sure you have a good connection by spinning it before you add any water. Likely the leak will be coming from the pump (white peice of plastic in the lower front with 2 black hoses going to it). If so, pry the two clips off the pump with a screw driver. Put the pump over a bowl to catch any remaining water. Squeeze the clamps on the hoses with a pair of pliers to remove them. A replacement part is availible at a local appliance part store or on line from the manufacture's web site.
