Drain hose seal leak on Kenmore washer

I have an 80 series Kenmore top loading washer that is leaking from the drain hose connection. I have made sure the hose was fully inserted and the hose clamps are secure, but water is collecting at the top and bottom of the rubber seal during draining. The pump itself seems to work. Not sure if the leak is coming from the pump or just the seal... suggestions?

Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.

Kenmore 70 series washer leaking


Check the hoses underneath the tube. There is two hoses one from the tub to the pump then the pump to the drain. Probably loose hose clamp. Or could be the pump leaking. If it is the pump itself you need to replace it. Or also coould be the botttom seal in the tub where it connects to the transmisssion.
When does it leak? It also could be the inlet hose if it just leaks when the water is going in.

I have a Kenmore 80 series about 4 years old and it is leaking. Had a repair man over 3 months ago and it did not leak. However, I see my baseboard behind the washer pulling away and ran a small load...


check to make sure the drain hose is all the way in the drain pipe in your wall. there should be a strap, or tie wrap holding it in place to keep the water pressure from pushing the pipe out of the drain during the drain cycle. if not, the water pressure will cause the drain hose to rise up and allow water to leak down the wall. use a flashlight. you should be able to see a trail of water residue leaking down the wall. slide the washer out a bit and run it. see if the water is coming from the wall, or leaking out of the washer itself. let me know and we can go from there.

Kenmore 90 series heavy duty super capacity plus quiet pak washing machine leaks a small amount water from the bottom front of washer when running a wash cycle.


If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool manufactured washer (Kenmore) is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader


If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

    Kenmore 80 series leaking


    well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.

    Washer Leaking from left front...


    That would be your drain pump and/or drain hoses. You will need to access the inside of the washer by removing the outside casing to get a good view. The following link explains:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

    The link explains how to replace the pump. Although you may not have a bad pump, it gives all the steps necessary to disassemble the washer to get to it. I would recommend you fill the tub about a third of the way then shut the washer off. This will fill the tub enough to determine where the leak may be coming from. Check both drain hoses for cracks or splits and make sure the clamps are tight. If the pump is leaking, it is NOT repairable. These are sealed units and will require replacing if damaged. You can purchase a new pump (if needed) at repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number and the pump should be listed as item number 3296 (part number 3363394).

    This a simple job that requires not special tools to accomplish. I hope you find this information helpful.

    You have a siphon condition. The water is siphoning out as it fills.
    Make sure you only have about 6 inches of the drain hose stuck into the house drain and make sure there is an air gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can get into pipe. If you have the drain sealed to keep water from backing out of it, you will need to get the pipes cleaned for the washer to work properly.
    The pressure of the water going through the pump during siphon is not enough to turn it on the machine.
    Post back if you need more help.
