Question about Kenmore 42822 Front Load Washer
I just moved and I plugged the washer in to spins some clothes. I noticed that it was leaking profusly from the bottom front part of the washer. Water leaks on the the floor and into the under storage bin.
This problem is usually attributed to the door bellow (rubber gray seal) becoming ripped or torn. If you puill back the folds in the rubber and inspect it, you may find a rip or hole in it some where. Another way to tell is by removing the bottom panel under the door and inspect from underneath. It is common for the front counterweight (concrete block) to become wet if the door bellow is leaking. Now, it is normal for these door bellows to wear out and they can be replaced. The following link explains how:
