Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing Machine Leaked but seems ok now.

My neighbours asked to borrow my washing machine as their's had broken down, but as mine was filling up, it started leaking at the front. I tried using it once after and it leaked slightly, but it now seems to be working fine. Could it be that they just overfilled it, or could something else be causing an intermittent problem? It's five years old and I probably use it twice a week.

    Sorry, for some reason it automatically put the washer as a top loader. It's not, it's a Front loading Whirlpool AWG338-3.

Likely it was overfilled - and caused an unbalanced load that may have shifted the tub - allowing the gasket to leak.

Some times on front loaders if it is out of balance it will not go into fast spin. Try to remove some of the cloths and see if this helps.
Best of luck

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...


Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end
