Leaking from the kenmore washing machine

The machine is not running yet but the water has already come out from the bottom.
checked all of the hoses , seem to me they are all dry ( not leaking )
Like i said, the machine is not running yet

could that be tub issue?

i wont think that is pump related since the spinning cycle is not on yet

thanks for the help!

Any part of the machine that has water contact is a possible source of the leak. Look for the highest (elevation) wet spot--that will be close. The tub has a couple of rubber connections--one on the side for water level sense and another for water drain on the bottom. If the tub itself has a rusted out spot, it can be repaired with epoxy cement (from inside the tub). It will be necessary to remove the inner tub assembly to get to the outer tub.

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

Check to see if the water pump is leaking at the bearing. Check the hoses that connect to the water pump to see if there are any cracks or splits.

Kenmore washer leak


With the machine unplugged and EMPTY disconnect the water and waster water connection from the wall and tip it forward you should then be able to access the pump.  Check the hoses running to the pump. (usually white plastic with 2 large and 1 small hose running to it.. you can also just move it away from the wall with it completely connected and run it thru a cycle to see where it is leaking from.

Open up behind, after taking off the wall power plug. Check to see it the hose from underneath the tub is loose, tighten. Or replace hose if damaged.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top


hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.

Machine leaks


Leaking water usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn't drain water from a backed-up standpipe (see HERE for information on clearing clogged drains). NOTE: To prevent serious flood damage that can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install "no-burst" stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them). 2) Determine whether machine is over-sudsing during wash loads-- this can cause the entire washing machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or use a low-sudsing variety. 3) Call a repairperson. The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced.
