Uktimate care washing machine leak

I raised the machine up off the ground to see if I could find the leak and it looks like it is coming from the pump. Do I have to change the pump or does it have a gasket that can be changed?

If you are certain it is the pump that is leaking, then the only solution is to replace the pump, as most pumps on wahers today, are non repairable, and it is usually the shaft seal that is leaking, due to general wear and tear.
Plz rate my solution.

My kenmore washer leaks,and i wanna know how to take apart to see where it leaks

Look for screws under the top edge of top. Pry gently looking for the spring clips so the top will raise up or the front panel will come off. Also look for screws at the bottom. It depends on your model.

Make sure the waste hose is sufficiently high enough above the ground to stop the water siphoning out. Try raising up the waste hose to approx 90cm / 36 inches.

Water leaks in front not all the time all hoses are tight took apart never leak put back together and it leaks

If you can remove the cabinet top and still get it to run, look for overfilling of the outer tub and possibly seeing where the leak is coming from. You may have a seeping water valve the keeps raising the water level as it runs.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine that is leaking water onto the floor. The water is not coming from the back of the machine. What do I need to look for and how do I get into the machine?...

I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking on your washer. The following link explains all the steps necessary to access and/or replace the pump (if required):

If the leak isn't too bad, allow the tub to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn off and unplug. With the exterior case removed, you should be able to see where the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the front of the washer, its probably your drain pump or drain hoses. If the leak is coming from the center under the wash tub, you more than likely have a bad tub seal. If the leak is coming from the side of the wash tub, you probably have a loose air hose on the air dome (with this problem, the washer will begin to leak when the tub gets to about 1/4 full). Also check all your drain hose clamps to ensure they are tight. The only other thing that can cause leaks is a cracked wash tub (not real common).

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you narrow down your problem.

Someone put washing powder in machine

First unplug the machine; open up behind to see if any of the hoses have come loose, tighten. Another place to look is the top of the machine where the water comes in, you hv to open the top to see if some hose there has come loose. Refit carefully. It is even possible that it leaks from where your filter is. Three places to check in all.

Water output hose

normally, they are just clamped to the outlet of the water pump. but be aware that you still need to raise the part of the hose as they come out of the unit in order for the machine to work. if you leave the hose just lying on the ground,as the machine fills up, water would be leaking down the drain even though water pump is not running. pressure switch will not be triggered and machine will not run.

Water leaking from under the front of the washing machine

The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know
