No need to remove the back panel on this model. You can access everything by removing the washer cabinet. Here's how:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

NOTE: The washer will NOT operate with the lid switch connector unplugged. If you wish to attempt to test the washer for leaks with the casing removed, you will need to by-pass the lid switch. This can be accomplished by jumpering the two black wires together at the lid switch receptacle. CAUTION: DO NOT attempt to jumper the wires with the washer plugged in! Attach jumper, then plug the washer in.

6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

Now, you stated your washer leaks during the rinse cycle. Double check all hose connections on the water pump (located directly in front under the wash tub). The pumps have also been known to start leaking along the seams. NOTE: If the pump leaks, it is NOT serviceable and must be replaced. They do not come apart.


To re-install washer case:

1. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side and reinsert the brass clips. Place the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push it into the opening on top of the washer. It will snap back into to place.

3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

4. Reinstall console.

I know it seems like a lot, but it is an easy process if you take your time and follow the steps as written. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Water leaking

I guess it was water from drain lines, or leak from water lines.

SOURCE: Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

1) did you check to see ( bottom ) if at one time you may have leaked fluid from the balancing ring? usually white oxidized color if water condensate's for a while. 2) This model you have has the tub suspended. There should either be three or four of these suspension brackets. try adjusting these and see if it helps. often times the washer is unevenly loaded and becomes off balance, therefore kicking springs and suspension pieces out-of-whack suspension, springs, balancing rings or anything else put in place to stabilize a load, is only a means under the right conditions...if these conditions are wrong they will do nothing.

My Kenmore elite washer starts then will stop an flash LE1 WHAT DOES THAT MEAN AN HOW DO I STOP IT FROM REOCCURRING


The LE1 error may mean that the water is leaving the washer as it flows in. Check that the drain hose outlet is higher than the washer's water level. (If the end of the drain hose is below the washer fill level, the water will siphon out. Raise the hose if needed.) Next check for water leaking from the tub; fix any leaks. If these aren't the cause, unplug your washer for several minutes to reset the control's error indicator.

If the error recurs, then the water level sensor, the central control unit or the wiring between them is faulty.

I hope this helps. If your washer is still under warranty, contact Sears. Please post a comment with the model of your washer for additional information.

No water when I start the machine, kenmore he2 front loading automatic washer model 110.46462500


First are the valves open for the water inlet? Next make sure that your hoses are not kinked. (There are some hoses that will seal themselves if they detect a leak, you may want to replace the hoses.) Remove the hoses from the back of the washer and place this free end into a bucket or sink, open the valves and flush lines of any foreign matter. Next clean the screens that are in the washer inlets. Sometimes you can pull these out with pliers for cleaning. Reinstall the screens and then the hoses. Make sure that there are no leaks.

If the above do not help, then the washer inlet valve is probably bad. See the parts diagrams here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11046472500/0582/0153200?sid=MMLxMerchandizexManualsModelx110.46462500x11046472500 (top and cabinent parts)

The manual for the 110.46462500 is available from Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17838/KENMORE-Residential-Washers-L0521458?brand_name_search=110.46462500 .

I hope this helps.

Kenmore 80 series Model 110.28812790 - water leak inside tub


It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.28812790&pathTaken=partSearch

Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.

Kenmore Oasis washer model 110.27032600; trapped hidden water


when you tipped the washer was the drain hose still attached? and if so was the drain hose elevated? most top load washers will have an amount of leftover water in the bottom of the tub. with the drain hose off and the washer tipped towards the rear you should lose any excess water. also try to open the top of the agitator to see if there is any water trapped there. hope this helps....

Kenmore Heavy Duty Washer Leaking from bottom


Probably the drain pump seal has gone bad.
Check it for leaks.
If your floor is good and level look for water near the front center of the machine.

Kenmore washer model 70 leaking


More than likely the pump. Very easy fix. To keep from being redundant I prepared a page on direct drive coupling removal and replacement. The pump must be removed to fix this item therefore it pertains to your problem. Plus you can watch for leaks better with the cabinet removed. To read click HERE.
