For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I have a Kenmore 90 series heavy duty washer that is leaking water all over my floor enough to soak up a couple of towels. What can this be and how do I fix? thank you.


could have a cracked water pump or the pipe that the drain line drains into is backing up.one other thing it could be is bad tub seals,the water will leak from the bottom middle of the tub but most likely it will be the pump,this is an easy fix,pop off the two clamps that hold the pump on and with a pair of plyers remove the two clamps on the hoses,make sure you put down a couple of bath towels to catch water that's still in the hoses,let me know how you make out,next time send model number,one of the most common pumps for your machine is 3363394 but check it with the part number on the old pump and give the parts store the correct model number.good luck

Crack in the bottom of my Kenmore washing machine tub


What is the model number? Is this a front loader or a top loader? To answer your question, yes, the tub can be replaced. You need to take a look at your warranty information to see if this can be replaced at no cost to you. Most manufacturer's warranties cover the first year against any major defects. However, some warranties are extended on certain parts. Something you may consider.

If you post back with your complete model number, I can give you an idea on how much a replacement tub may cost you, and if you have to pursue this on your own...I can give you the steps required to replace the tub.

NOTE: Marine epoxy or plumbers goop may work as a temporary fix in the mean time.

Washer will not hold water start washing cycle and water runs out the bottom


Likely a damaged hose either from tub to pump or pump to drain hose. Could also be a cracked/broken pump housing or shaft seal. A further possibility would be a rust-through in the outer tub (which can be fixed with epoxy).

Kenmore 44024 is leaking water apparently from the tumbler not any of the water sources or drains.


Open the lower kick panel and inspect for the source of the leak. If you feel water or see rusty or soapy residue around the tub bolts that hold the tub halves together, remove the cabinet top and tighten all the bolts around the tub. The bolts should be snug when tightening. If the bolts are ok, feel all around the outside of the tub for holes or cracks.
Good luck!

Water keeps flowing non-stop with my old Kenmore washer


Check the pressure switch and the pressure switch hose.
Remove the end caps on the console and remove the 2 screws that hold it down. Pull slightly from the bottom of the console and flip it up. On the left side you should see the pressure switch (water level switch) with a few wires and a small hose connected to it. The hose should be connected between the pressure switch and the tub. In most cases the pressure switch hose sometimes falls off over time due to vibration.
Replace the hose if it is damaged. If there are no visible holes or cracks in the hose, try trimming 1/4" off each end of the hose (pressure switch side and tub side) and reconnect them making sure to push hose ends securely onto connections. This is done because the hose sometimes stretches at the connection points and you will lose air pressure inside the switch, therefore the water will never shut off.
Alternatively you can use small clamps on each end.
If this doesn't work, check the function of the pressure switch by attaching a small hose to it and blowing lightly into the pressure switch while the machine is filling. You should hear a click and the inlet water valve should turn off. If it doesn't turn off you may need to replace the pressure switch or if the machine fills even when it's in the off position replace the inlet water valve.
Good luck!

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

    Kenmore 80 series leaking


    well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.
