Question about Kenmore HE5

1 Answer

HE5 Washer. Water in tub all the time.

I've had my washer for about 2 years. All of a sudden, I've noticed that there seems to be a constant drip in the tub. If I leave the tub full of wahed/spun clothes and don't immediately remove them after a cycle, hours later, they'll be sopping wet. Any thoughts as to how I can fix it?

Your water solenoid is probably not closing completely and letting water by pass. Not sure what your model number is but you can find this part and others at www.Repairclinic.com Good luck.

Kenmore 20422 leaves water and clothes soaked after spin cycle


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Initial thoughts point to one of two places.

1. It's possible that your pump and/or hoses are clogged.

2. It is also possible that the "Motor coupler" between the motor and transmission is worn and cannot provide full power to the tub when agitating.

See the following illustrated descriptions of how to access the pump and motor coupler.

If either is bad or worn, they aren't all that expensive.

I doubt that the problem is the motor since the machine will agitate and spin.

Water built up in Maytag Washer Model MAV-17


I would check the water valves or the water lines. If the water valve is leaking, the water could be running out and following down the cabinet then in to the tub, or the water valve water line that leads right in to the tub there for leaving a water build up.

Kenmore Washer Leak


Check the back of the tub as the water is coming in. Sometimes the water inlet gets knocked out of line if the machine shakes a lot or gets moved.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 leak after wash cycle


Hello, you may have a small drip from the pump or a small drip from the hose that goes from the pump to the rear of the cabinet. To make sure you will have to run the unit with the cabinet removed. A local service tech can remove the cabinet quicklyand isolate the leak.

LSR8233JQ washer water drips into tub from fill port


Yes the fill valve has been damaged by the silt. If you remove the hoses from the valve you will probably notice that there is either one or both steel screens missing from valve body. You cant remove the screens if they get clogged.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
