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.

My washer sometimes ends up with a couple inches of water in the tub a day after last used. Also, at times water leaks on the floor. Neither of these things happen consistently.


It is likely that the fill valve located inside the rear panel is leaking, especially if you leave the supply lines turned on all the time. One annoying fix is to turn off the water supply after each laundry session but than you have to remember to turn the water on again next time

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.

Water Building up Inside Front Load Washer when not in use


Okay, it is normal to hear water sloshing around inside the wash tub when the washer is not in use. A small amount of residual water remains in the wash tub under the wash basket (stainless steel tub), and resides in the drain line and drain pump. That's why it is important to keep the door slightly open when not in use to allow the drum to air out. The water will not evaporate, but it will help reduce the build up of odors, mold and mildew.

Now...if your washer is slowly accumulating water in the wash basket area over time, your water inlet valve is probably starting to fail. The leak can be very subtle and you may not notice it. The water only comes from one source - the fill valve via the dispenser. If you wish to replace it, the part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part you need can be found under the "Dispenser" heading as item number 1. The replacement is very simple if you follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer and turn off water supply.
2. Remove both fill hoses.
3. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer.
4. Slide the top panel back, then it lifts off.
5. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer as facing from the front.
6. Remove the rubber hose leading from the valve and the electrical connections.
7. Remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place.
8. Re-install new valve using these steps inthe reverse order given.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have further questions, please post back and let me know.

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
