Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

Puddle under 1 yr old washing machine hours after it is finished

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.

I just moved into an apartment equipped with a stackable moffat MCCH6110HSS washer and moffat 350A4502P547 dryer. I've discovered that the washer appears to repeat the rinse/spin cycle over and over again...


HI, I spent many years in apartment maintenance and most communities have maintenace staff to fix issues you have with their equipment,call the leasing office.The most likely cause is a bad timer.

Loud jet noise in spin cycle on Kenmore stackable top load washer


it is the drum bearing seal and it has gone out and ruined the bearings,you would need a lip seal kit and appropriate bearings for that particular unit,i do a lot of maytag front loads and it can take anywhere from 2 hours up to 8 hours depending how the old bearings come out and the damage to the bearing and seal surfaces,the sooner you get to it the less chance of severe damage it will cause,because water will kep on destroying bearings till they lock up and destroy the drive pulley

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.

Shuts off in middle of cycle


I am having the same problem w/ our brand new front loader washer, it pauses constantly, and even when I can get the load to finish, I have to drain and spin atleast 3 x before I can even attempt to put in dryer, at this point it is taking me hours to do one load of laundry!!
Ugh-- Service man is coming tomorrow, so I will share what I learn...

Black spots on white laundry


is the washer noisey when spinning? If so its probable that the main bearings are worn, & losing the original grease into the wash tub. At 10-14 yrs old its probably not woth fixing (assuming parts are still available)
