You will need yo remove front panel. Should be 2 screws near bottom on front. Take these out. Use putty knife or thin screwdriver to pop clips to pop the top up. the 2 clips are in the slot between the top and the front panel. Once top is up you will push down on the front panel. There are 2 tabs and slots on each side that connect the front panel to main cabinet. As you push the front panel down you should be able to pull the panel toward you and out. The tabs and slots are easy to bend and sometimes hard to get back in. Hope this helps!

Cold water leaks into tub when machine is off


Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the WATER INLET valve

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace inlet water valve

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace pump .

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. 9696d86e-1b8b-4b2e-af2c-6f3a3ae921dc.jpg

My Kenmore stacked washer is leaking and I can't find the source.


There are three common areas where it could leak. The internal hoses connected to the water valves can leak. They have a rubber o-ring inside that can wear out. The tub could crack, or the tub seal can leak. Remove as many panels as needed to gain access to inside of the machine too see which one of those are leaking.

Kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap


We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

I have a GWL11 washer that has a small water leak that appears to be clean water. I looked underneath and couldn't see where it was coming from.


Sometimes water can leak from the hoses where they join the taps and/or the water inlet valves..Check for leaks by running you hands along the hoses and unions. Or there may be a problem inside the area behind the display panel...Unplug at wall and remove the 2 screws at rear of display panel. You may have to remove the lid by sliding it upwards while on the open (vertical) position..sometimes the mixer box leaks where the temperature sensor probe connects...Good luck...Nomess

Maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from


I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.

Water leaking into tub when washer is not in use


Hello, Yes it is the valve leaking, remove 2 screws at the back top of the washer, slide top panel backward and lift, once you have removed the top panel you should see the valve, they are fairly easy to replace. Good luck!! Mike
