A Clothes Washer with the complaint "Leaks in Front" (on floor) can be;

Defective Water-Pump (Very common of non-belt models) - Many water-pumps become defective due to the constant wear and misc. items becoming lodged (coins, necklaces, shoe laces, screws, etc.) or breaking the plastic housing or connections. The water pump is fairly simply to replace and is located on the inside front of the machine.

The water pump is typically a white or off white plastic and will have (2) black drain hoses connected; one coming from the tub and the other going to the drain out the back/rear of the machine. Electric pumps with typically of 2 wires going to and connected to the pump. ** Note: When disconnecting and removing the water-pump, becareful of water remaining in tub that may come shooting/flowing out.

    A Clothes Washer with the complaint of "Stopping During Mid-Cycle" or "Fills, Agitates, But Does not Drain or Spin" can be:

    Defective Door/Lid Switch (Very Common): The lid-switch "that clicking sound you may hear when opening/shutting the door" can become defective after constant "slamming or dropping" or the door. This switch is a relatively simple repair. The lid switch can be located on the inside top of the machine and can be typically removed by (2) screws and un-plugging the electrical from the inside. The lid-switch costs about $15 or so for the part.

Washing machine Series 80 Kenmore wont drain water after it's RINSE cylce including the motor. It's like the TIMER stopped after the RINSE CYCLE. I think it's the timer.


does it drain after the wash cycle? if it does, then I don't think it's the timer. It uses the same contact there as for the rinse cycle. Do you hear the motor running as if it's trying to drain? If the motor is running, perhaps the pump itself is no good? Just a couple things to check. Hope it helps.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.
