Washer drum leaking

The leak seams to located at a seam where two sides of the drum have been joined . I tried tightening the bolts that hold it together to no effect. I am afraid of stripping them out of the plastic by overtightening them.

Yeah, this really sucks but you need a new drum. I ran into this many times while working for Sears as a repair man. If you don't have a warranty on the machine you are better off buying a new one as it is very expensive. More then the cost of a new washer. It is a pain to change out the drum too, it takes two people as it is so heavy and awkward. You can tighten those screws and it isn't going to help as it is the seal inside. The only problem is you can't just replace the seal, you have to replace the whole drum. If you have any other questions let me know and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, glad I could help you out though.

Is repair time and parts extensive for this type of repair? Kenmore Front Load Model# 110.45986401

Confirm that it is not the door seal. The door seal can easily be replaced and the parts are available.

You would expect that any water leaking around the door seal would migrate down to the lowest part of the tub leaving the appearance that the leak is where the two half's of the tub are joined by the retaining clips
Replacing the seal between the two tub half's is a different story as compared to the door seal. The tub seal is definitely do-able, but not for the faint of heart!!

If the leak is very very small I might wait until a major overall is require such as the tub seal/bearing. If I chose to wait I would monitor the situation.

Inspect the area at the hub of the pulley looking for streaks of rust.. If there is an indication that water is leaking past the basket tub seal than doing an over hall now may included front door seal, tub seal, bearing and basket seal replacement.

Is there a condensate drain for blower motor compartment under the dash of a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD?

Look for cracked sealant between the firewall and the body near the A post. Look under the bug screen by the wiper arms.I had 18 new Buicks that all leaked water with missing sealant in the seams where the firewall joined the A post. The case that hold the heater core and the AC evaporator has a gasket on both sides of the firewall. The gasket will allow water into the cab if some of the mounting bolts shake loose ot the gasket dries out. It's only paper.

I have a 2000 Electra Glide that leaks oil where the cases are joined. Anyone else have this issue? Worth repairing?

Hi Goulets, if it's leaking from the case seams aside from splitting the cases and resealing them is to check the torque on the case bolts 1/4" bolts/nuts 10 ft lbs. 5/16" bolts/nuts 20 ft lbs. for all other leaks the usual suspects are:
1. Loose parts.
2. Imperfect seal at gaskets, push rod covers, washers ect.
3. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
4. Restricted breather hose to air cleaner.
5. Restricted oil filter.
6. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
7. Bottom rocker housing gasket installed upside down.
Good luck and have nice day.

77 el camino leaks from passenger side behind dash. what could it be?

Hello there:
This leakage that youare seeing is coming from the heater core which means that you will need to remove the heater core and get a new one
The best way to do this is to Mark and disconnect the 2 hoses that are going thru the firewall to whick pipe they attach to on the heater core then remove the 6 or 8 nuts or bolts that hold it into place then you will find that the box that the heater core is sitting in may have some nuts and bolts on it to so remove them next the box itself needs to be seperated at the seam to assist in the removal of the heater core so cut along the seam with a very sharp knife or a utility knife and then remove the old heater core and install the new one then put everything back and dont forget to reseal the box otherwise you wont get much heat flow from the core de to air getting inside of the box ok then make sure you put sealant on the bolts where they go thru the fire wall and tighten it down firmly then reattach the hoses and you are done
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

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
