Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I did a load of wash yesterday. It was a large delicate load. In the middle of the wash cycle water began to pour out of the bottom. At first I thought the door was not shut but realized it was coming from under the machine. I turned it off and unplugged it My husband checked all the hose connections and they were fine with no signs of water leaking from them. There was no error message on the board. Once we cleaned up the water he plugged it in and ran the drain cycle. It ran the full cycle. Later, when he tipped the machine to look under it we could still hear water in it. Any ideas?
Teach, usually all leaks are visable. Have your husband remove the lower panel by removing the 3 #11 torxs on the bottom panel and pull down and off. Now you can see the tub drain hose and filter. First check the dispensor drawer. Remove it and check to see if you have anything blocking the inlet tube to the tub. Sometimes a seal from a fab or detergent cap blocks the entrance. When the disp. is out just reach in with a finger in front and you will feel the inlet grate. Next inspect the boot. Make sure there are no cuts or rips. Once you feel that this checks out ok, replace the disp. drawer and put the machine in the test cycle. On the left side press drain/spin. On the right side press spin speed until No spin is lit. Then press the prewash button 4 times until C:00 is displayed. Now let it do it's thing. It will fill, rotate, drain and spin. It will end with C:08 in the display. With the bottom panel off during the test, see if you can find the source of the leak. You can push cancel/drain anytime to stop the test. Catriver.
