Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Hours after doing laundry, there is a puddle under the washer. It is only 1 year old. The puddle isn't there when the washer is on, or when the washer is emptied, or when clothes are put in the dryer, or when they are taken out of the dryer. It's hours later. What could cause a washing machine to leak hours afterward? I've checked the sink it drains into, and that isn't backed-up or leaking.
Sounds like either the gasket on the inlet is leaking or not tight or the solenoid housing is cracked causing the leak. When its in use the pressure from the line is realased when the solenoid is opened letting water in. When not in use the solenoid stays closed allowing pressure from the line to build causing the gasket to leak. Check your gaskets, and solenoid housing for leaks and then check to make sure your water pressure is not set too high.
