I have a Kenmore/LG Fridge that leaks - does anyone know where I might find a service manual?

My kenmore washer molel 110-82873120 is leeking from the top.


Dear R.A.,
If your washer is leaking you should first check the hoses.
  • There are several types of hoses found on a washing machine and the most common are the drain and fill hoses.
  • The fill hoses connect the household supply to the water inlet valve and are normally located at the rear of the washer. Check to make sure that the threaded fittings are tightened securely and that the leak is not caused by the faucet.
  • The drain hose is also located at the rear of the machine and may not be properly installed into the household drain. Verify that the leak is not caused by a restricted household drain that is backing up through the stand pipe.
  • Washers will also have internal hoses that connect the inlet valve to the tub. A defect in this hose would create a leak during the fill cycle.
  • Access the tub inlet by lifting the main top or removing the cabinet and inspect the hoses for signs of abrasion or cracking.
  • Also inspect the other components of the water inlet system such as a siphon break or tub injection assembly for signs of a leak. Check for loose or corroded clamps, and cracked or perforated hoses.
  • Your inlet Valves may also be totally defective and cause the washer to overfill therefore causing a leak over the top.
  • Check for the tub Pressure switch assembly may be defective causing such leak.
  • Your model requires removing the complete cabinet.(front and sides come out as on piece) Here a link to all your machine parts
I think we cover all the possibilities.
Best of Luck,
JP

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 795.7102. The freezer on the bottom wil not go below 20 degrees. The refrigerator will be at 40 degrees. Something is running all the time.


It's possible that the defrost timer motor has stopped. (note your timer might be incorporated in an electronic control module) This will cause the evaporator coils to ice up. Less likely: The timer may be OK, but the defrost heater assembly is open circuit and therefore not heating up. According to RepairClinic.com, 795.7102 model number is incomplete: "795.7102 is a partial model number for a Kenmore Refrigerator. To see specific parts for your Refrigerator, please choose your exact model from the list above or choose the model that's closest." Here a link:

Why does my Kenmore washing machine leaks in front when agitating?


Most likely the sight of water leaking from the front of the machine, means it is leaking from somewhere else. Check all inlet and outlet hose connections. Hard water deposits build up and can cause minor leaks over time. If it is only noticeable during the wash cyclee,(agitating) it is possible there is a leak in the drum. Rare, but possible.

f54adfa5-965b-4b11-879a-627973789383.jpgKenmore has a model number like this example=> 321.12345678 Can you look around the fresh food section door frame for your model number? I need the model number so I know what to look for in the components that may cause this. A defective or bad connection at the pin plug leaving the door and
going to the control board is one possibility. A damp or corroded connection, loose pin plug on any circuit boards and even a defective thermistor. Let me know if possible, Thanks Sea Breeze

1. A door open partially will cause a frost build-up then thaw and run down to the floor. Check all doors for proper closure and educate other users.
2. An issue with an unhappy animal is quite common
3. Door switch intermittently causing a light to stay on ora fan to not run
4 Ice build up around ice door chute .
5. Water dripping into ice tray and overflowing. Replace water valve.

I read post after post about this very same problem, it is caused by a failure of the bearing that the tub rides on, this causes the grease seal to leak and then the streaks which are grease stains from the rear bearing

I have a Kenmore Elite 9 yrs old. Water leaks out of the tub when it is filled. It started as a slow leak, but getting worse. Any suggestions for a fix? Thank You, Wayne


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

Dishwasher leaks during the wash and rinse cycles from the front


Without knowing the model number of this Sears Kenmore dishwasher, it is difficult to be specific in a solution.
There is a float/switch that controls the amount of water added before each wash or rinse cycle. Replacing that float would be the first step.
Can not be more specific without knowing the model number.

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


All the cooling takes place in the freezer and is blown over to the frig side so the frig side will start to warm up soon. Possible cause is the starting device to the compressor is faulty, compressor motor locked up or cold control faulty and not closing.
