Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
On my Kenmore elite M#110.44936 front loading washer, i noticed a small puddle underneath the rear corner of the unit every time i washed. After removing the front an rear panels, I discovered that there seems to be a slow leak from the bottom of the front of the tank. It just seaps out, but enough to cause a problem. The water drips down from the balance weight in the front onto the drain valve, and then accumulates in the drip pan. The water then must go underneath and run along the bottom until it reaches the back corner and drips off to the floor. The machine is just out of warranty (go figure!!. The problem dosnt apear to be the door seal. Is there something else to look for?
Chech between tub and rubber seal it could have a small piece of clothing like a sock stuck in between the two

I had a similar problem. It turned out to be the overflow "sock". It's a long plastic bag that hangs from the side of the tub. You have to get the top open, and it will be on the left side. Where it attaches to the tub, the plastic attachment has a rubber washer that gets flattened out after time allowing the attachment to get loose and leak. Since I couldn't find the washer to replace it, I cut a piece of gasket material like you get from an auto parts place and placed it behind the foam washer. This made the connection tight, and the leak stopped, thank God.

This will more likely be your door seal open the door pull your seal so u can see inside and feel around as u look u will more than likely find a hole the water looks like it comes from somewhere else but it will be from the hole in the door seal seen this with hundreds of washers m8
