Remove the front panel of the machine, remove the element and slacked off the centre bolt, apply a layer of clear silicon to the rubber seal refit tighten centre bolt leave overnight and test the following day, this will resolve the problem.

Kenmore washing machine 2 year old is now flooding my floor every 20 loads happiend 4 times. Please help.

Is the water flooding coming from the top of the washing machine?
Check the drain pipe in the back to see that it's not loose. Also, look inside the drain pipe and make sure there is no algae. Algae might cause low flow through the drain pipe and it will overflow.

Hope this helps.

F 03 showing on machine

Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

Hi I have model No WF 740 1400 spin! However programme L is filling up with water, appears to be washing as normal until it reaches final 7 minutes, then machine becomes laboured and will not spin! the...

it appears that the pump is not removing the water that is spun out  if there is a belt on the pump then it may have fallen off or need replacing   if it is intact then the pump either failed or there is a blockage in the line
