Water leak out the bottom of the door when it running door seam lose


If the washer is leaking water the front door boot seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The boot seal can be replaced. This part can tear when the washer is overloaded. This is common repair.

Washer continues to fill with water, no shut off. I turn the connection off at the back of the washer when I hear the change in the water pressure and the washer then goes through the cycle. Solenoid? This...


You have a float valve that works much the same way that the float in your toilet tank works, either your float is leaking, (full of water), or the valve actuated by the float is bad.

My front load washer is leaking water during the spin cycle


It sound like the hose that goes to your water pump under the tub might be loose or the pump is leaking. I hope this helps you out

Leaks occur in spin/empty cycle


I had the same problem, you need to turn the washing machine on it's side and look for a pin hole leak in the seam of the plastic holding drum on the bottom. I used a silicone sealant, "GOOP" , let it dry for 1 day and problem solved. It has not leaked in two years. good luck!

Washer has water running in it


It sounds like you have a defective water inlet valve. This is where your fill hoses connect to the back of the washer. The valve usually has two electrically operated solenoid valves (one for hot, one for cold). These solenoids can go bad and cause the valve to leak by. The valves can also become clogged with sediment and not close properly, also causing leak by. If you have hard water this could be the case. Also, low water pressure can sometimes cause these valves not to seat properly. A minimum of 10-25 psi is required at the taps. If you've never had a water pressure issue in the past, I would doubt this to be your problem. You can try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. But, if you're going to go through the trouble of removing the valve to clean it, you might as well replace it so you don't have to repeat the process later.

To access, the valve you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the top will slide back, then off. The fill valve will be located on the left hand side in the rear of the washer.

If you desire to replace it, a new valve can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number in the Search window and look under the "Dispenser Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8181694).

If you need instructions on how to replace the valve, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
