Kenmore elite top load about 3 years old

The machine works properly but after the water is spun out of the machine it continues to leak from the bottom of the machine and keeps the floor wet. I clean up the water and within a few minutes there is water all over the floor again

Check the boot for tears, also remove the lower axcess panel (Three torx screws or 7mm) and see where the water is coming from.

Water pours in on spin cycle

The first thing i would check is your boot around the door for a rip or tear. Also check the drain line for any types of leaks. You can also remove the bottom panel there will be three torx screws and you can look at your drain pump while in spin and drain cycle to see of the leak located in that area.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Water leaking from bottom ofoasis top loading machine

you may not be leaking out the bottom. Your stand pipe may be clogged. If the stand pipe has a slight clog in it, the stand pipe will over flow, and the water "looks" as if its leaking from the bottom... These pump faster than your old machine, so the pipe will back up faster... hope that helps

Kenmore Washer leaks

When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.

Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Check your pump. The pump is located on the end of the motor. You can tip the machine back and pull the pump off to check it. After you take the pump off. Check to see if there is a water stain where the shaft of the motor goes through the pump. If so you pump is leaking.
