Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
Had this washer since 1995 & operated without problem. Problem has developed suddenly as follows: 1) Very slight leak ( maybe 4 oz ), seems to be from rear of machine, when filling on wash cycle. 2) When agitating, the tub runs slightly off center, accompanied by a thumping sound and slight visible deflection of the front cabinet panel. 3)When wash cycle drains, a substantial leak ( more than a quart )occurs beneath machine. Most water pumps out the drain hose. No noise on spin. 4) Rinse cycle fills tub, but again some leakage beneath machine, perhaps a quart. I'm guessing some sort of bearing / seal problem. Is it worth fixing ? Any ideas will be appreciated ? Thanks Much !
Sounds like my 91 Geo Merto LOL! Anywho when it washes the pump spins one way and water is basically thrown back into the tub, then when on spin it spins in the opposite direction and if there is a hose leak past the pump or the pump itself leaks it will come out of the drain system. As for the thump, check under the unit for anything that shouldnt be under there getting caught up in the mechanics. Let us know :-)
