    Questions are great where do i began....Yes the hose to the bleach dispenser has been replaced, the tub ring and the fabric softner dispenser have all been replaced. The washer still continues to leak after every wash cycle. It shows up on the floor after the entire cycle has run its course. As to the location of the leak thats the million dollar question I think its leaking from somewhere closer to the front. The water amount is sometimes quite a lot and sometimes not so much. Always enough to show up on the side of my machine and run under my sink. Major pain. Maybe you can help so far no one else has been able to.

    My washer is still under warranty and the service guy will be here on July the 8th. If you can believe that this machine is under a year old and has already had 5 service calls. Only one service tech has taken the back off the machine and looked anywhere other then under the rim. I will mention this possible solution and see what happens. Is the hose located in the back or toward the front of the machine? And why does it wait for the tech to leave before it starts to leak again! Thank you so much for all the info I'll let you know what happens.

Hi, Did they check the pump seal or the hoses. Does it seem to leak from the front center? Is it leaking while filling or during agitation or spin cycle? Are you getting water every load and is it a little water or a lot?
Please forgive all the questions, I have to ask.

    There is a hose that runs from the side of the tub to the water level switch that can get a hole and leak.

    Here is instructions on how to remove the cabinet. You can run the washer full of water and see if the leak appears.

    Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.

    Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

    I hope this helps you. Let me know please.

    I hope they can help you this time.

    Without the model #, I am not sure on the style/make of washer you have. The solution of taking the cabinet might not apply to your machine. Most top loads have the cabinet I described.

    Good luck and thank you for letting me know.

    Please feel free to rate my responses to you so that others as well as myself know how I am doing.

Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly

Kenmore Elite Oasis, fabric softer thing exploded...


Okay...the cone actually goes inside the the two other pieces you mention. The cone is to be inserted upside-down. That is, the opening of the cone should be facing UP. The way this fabric softener dispenser is supposed to work is, you place fabric softener thorugh the opening of the dispenser. The cone actually holds it like a cup. When the washer goes through the initial spin cycle before the rinse cycle begins, the centrifugal force of the washer spinning forces the fabric softener out of the cone and into the wash tub.

The dispenser assembly should just snap right on top of the agitator. If the dispenser does not stay on securely any longer, you may have to replace it with a new one. You can find replacements at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the same model number you provided and look for item number 1 under the "Motor, Basket and Tub Parts" heading.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know.

PS It is also a good idea to periodically remove the dispenser and soak it in some hot water to get rid of accumulations of hardened softner. They will clog from time to time.

Washer leaves fabric softner stain on white clothes


Dispenser wholes are probably clogged and all the softener is not dumping when it is supposed to!. Top loaders usually have a little cup like place to add the softener in the top of the agitator!
Those the Manuel tells you to rinse with water occasionally!

If you can't figure it out, call service and get it done and over!
You will feel better!!!
