Re: Kenmore - 43142 front load - leaking

Which hose are we talking about? If you're talking about the small rubber hose at the top center of the door seal, HOW is it leaking? Is there a hole in the hose? Is the door seal itself damaged? Let me know a little more so I can give you the proper advice.

Small **** in the rubber molding inside the door; leaking.

You may need to replace the door seal. But first take some 100% pure silicone and push some in the hole and around the hole. Let this dry for 24 hours before using this should seal it up. If this does not work replace the door seal. Here is a link that should help

Rubber seal damaged. needs to be replaced kenmore model 970-c44052-00 How do I remove sides to get at it?

there is no need to remove the side to replace the door seal, just behind the door seal there is a spring clip undo this and fold the seal into the drum were you should see another spring clip undo that as well and the door seal comes out from the front through the hole in the door, to refit a new fold the seal till its inside out and fitted on the inner drum first fit the inner clip then pull it through the door hole and fit the outer spring clip out side the door

Kemore HE is leaking when washer is filling up with water

OK, if this leak is coming from the front lower side of the door, this Will eb a door seal issue. make sure the seal isn't compromised by a small object that may have been jammed during the closing of the door. if this isn't the case, replace the faulty door seal.

Now, if this leak is coming from the the bottom back side of the unit. this will be a water valve issue. check the hoses that connect to the inlet valve. make sure the hoses are tightly screwed on there respective sections.

Washer leaking water from underneath

Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
