If you have water leaking from the drain pump on a Kenmore top loader, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

These pumps are not serviceable and once they start leaking they need replaced. The repair is also fairly simple and easy enough for any do-it-yourselfer. A new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com.

    The pump should be replaced only after you have CONFIRMED it is leaking. Make sure you check your drain lines and hose clamps to ensure they are not leaking as well.

My LG WM2455 has water leaking from lower front near the front access door. I have checked the catch basin and drained the tube but still get leakage after the next load. What could the problem be?


If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
Check the condition of the drain hose that connects the tub to the pump.

Leaking coolant


There is a weep hole at the bottom of the water pumps to let you know the pump is worn and needs replaced.

Water pump


The most common source of a coolant leak on any engine is by far the water pumps front seal. If you get under the engine you should be able to see the white stains from the dried coolant leading towards the water pump, you can also touch under the front of the water pump and see if it is wet with coolant.

Water leaking from front of oil pan


Very likely coming from the weep hole in the water pump, and dribbling down front of engine.
The weep hole is usually on the hidden side (back) of water punp and not easily seen. follow the trickle.
When water pump begins to leak like that, it means the bearing are wearing, and the seal is giving out as consequense. It will steadliy get worse. Verify the source of leak and replace the water pump if indicated..

My 2006 charger 3.5 is leaking coolant but only somtimes is it a sign of water pump malfunction no indications on the gauges but car seems to be running hot


this is most likely the water pump if it is leaking at front of engine, the water pump is under the large timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt, so both are changed at the same time.

Why is there a water leak coming from the water pump?


i would say you answered your own question, if there is water leaking from the water pump i would say the water pump is leaking and it needs to be replced,either the bearing is bad and its leaking out the shaft,or the seal is bad and its leaking outta there either way you need a new water pump,check the belt for wear when you replace it,,

Water leak at front of engine very small amount maybe a gallon every 2 weeks on 5.3 suburban 2002


check your hoses for poor condition and loose clamps. Check the gasket around your water pump as well.

Washer leaking from undeneth


Most likely a leaking water pump. Remove the top lid from the washer. Then remove the front panel to access the water pump. The pump is attached to the front of the motor. Remove the pump support clips then remove the pump from the motor. If in question, set the machine to fill with water and look for a water leak at the pump. You can also inspect all other hoses and water connections with the panel removed.

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.
