Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My husband forgot to winterize our Kenmore Elite H3 washer when we moved. It was stored in our garage for 5 months(September - February). When we hooked it up water immediately started pouring from the bottom. I'm sure some part froze, cracked and is now leaking. I just don't know what steps to take to diagnose and fix the problem - any help would be wonderful.

    I took off the back and front panels and hooked up the water. It appears the water is leaking from the inlet valve itself but only on the cold side. I can't get around to see exactly what is going on or if something is loose. So my next step is to figure out how to take that part out and perhaps replace it.

Its most likely the rubber tubing, and sack that connect the drum to the drain pump. You can either remove the back panel, or the panel in the bottom front of your washer to check for cracks in the rubber. It might be as simple as the tube came out of place during the move.

I have an H3 washing machine and the rubber bellow lip that seals the front door from leaking has torn causing water to leak out. Can this bellow be repaired or easily removed and replaced without calling a service repairman.

Kenmore elite h3


F/DL means the door lock.  If you take the bottom panel off (there are 3 screws), you can reach up and pull down on a lever to release the lock.  Next you need to take off the top of the washer (there are 3 screw on the back).  ONce you have the panel removed, you can see the wires and where they plug in at the back right area.  If you just jiggle them, you can get it to work again.  I am doing this right now until I can get a new computer.  My neighbor has a front loading washer of a different brand and experienced the same problem I am having now.  She is the one who told me how to fix it.
