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 leak from source which cannot be seen


Is this a FRONT LOADER? Or, is this a TOP LOADER?

If this is a FRONT LOADING Kenmore washer, the following link explains how to access and inspect the washer for leaks:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

In most cases, the source of the leak on a FRONT LOADER is the door bellow (gray rubber seal). If the bellow is ripped or torn it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

If this is a TOP LOADING Kenmore washer, the following link explains how to access and inspect for leaks:

Kenmore70 series washer 110.26752502 leaks water while filling


If you have a leak on a TOP LOADER, the most common cause is a worn drain pump, leaking drain hoses or the hose to the air dome has come loose. You will need to remove the exterior case of the washer to be sure. DO NOT lay the washer on its back. The gearcase contains oil and it may leak through the breather hole.

The following link explains how to inspect a TOP LOADER for leaks:

If the drain pump is leaking, it is not serviceable and must be replaced, the following link explains how to replace one:

Read through the instructions provided and let me know if you need further assistance. The choice is yours if you wish to pursue this repair on your own. In my opinion, you don't need a "certified repairman" to find the source of a leak in most cases. Many of these repairs are simple with a little guidance. I hope this help you.

Water coming out from the bottom of washing machine


Have the unit panel taken of to see where the source of the water comes from. It could come from a leak or the water overflows or is not draining. Check for leaks in the valves or hose, as you inspect where the water comes from. To check if it is not draining see after wash if the water drains while the panel is taken off. IT could be caused by the water level sensor (usually a floating device on the tray) may have been dislocated or needs replacement or a faulty water pump.

Water leaking into washer


is the drain plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap? if so this may be the source of water coming in when appliance not in use.
take the drain hose as high as possible in a swan neck under the sink and see if this cures it.
other possibility is a leaking inlet water valve but would expect fault then not to be intermittant

Water leak on occasion front load washer purchased around 2002/03


You need to remove the kick panel (under the front door). There are two screws at the very bottom of the kick panel, one in each corner.
This will give you visibility to see where the leak is coming from.
On the right hand side is the drain pump. The black hose goes from the pump,out the rear and into your drain pipe. It is secured by a clamp and is one possible source of leak.
If that connection is dry, look underneath the tub where the two parts, front and back of drum, come together. there is an o ring sealing the two sections and this is another source of water leak. (major problem is this is leaking)
Failing this you will just have to trace the source of the leak. You may have to take off the top of the washer to check the water inlet hoses which run on the top of the machine but would still show as a leak under the machine. Good luck.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top


hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.
