SOURCE: Water leaking

If it's the hose your talking about, the white tube connected to your tub is called and "air dome" hose. It connects to your pressure switch to shut off your fill valve when selecting load sizes. The hose should connect to a fitting somewhere near the base of the wash tub. If it is leaking, generally mildew inside this tube can cause it slip off it's fitting or lose it's seal. Also the hose can stretch out of shape over time and lose its seal. If you have enough slack in the house, you can pull the hose off the fitting and cut about half an inch off the end, clean the fitting, and reattach. This should reseal it. If the hose itself is leaking, you should replace the entire length of house from the tub to the pressure switch. You can find plastic hose of this type at any hardware store. I hope this helps.

The mixing valve needs to be replaced. It should be under $50 and is easy to do.

SOURCE: GE Front Load Washer

Had the same problem and did 2 things to fix. Remove the bottom panel on the washer(3 screws on bottom front). Just to the right of the center is a white plug that you can unscrew. Before you unscrew, get an 8x8 cake pan underneath to catch the water that comes out(bigger if there is water stuck in your washer). Unscrew cap and take out filter. My filter had pocket change, bandaids, tape, hairpins etc in it(kids do their own laundry and aren't vigilant about checking pockets). Screw filter back in and put panel back on.
Also, lint was drying on washer tub viewing glass where gasket hit it. Gasket wasn't making a good seal there and thats where water leaked out. Clean the dried lint off. No more leaking for me.

SOURCE: GE washer won't agitate

I had this same problem with our GE top load washer.  I just needed to pull harder.  (Note: The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.)  Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together.  Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard. I had to take the entire tub out, lay it on the porch, put my feet inside of it, and pull the agitator assembly out.  I wasn't able to pull it out while it was still in the washer.  BE CAREFUL! DON'T **** IT OUT; that might injure your back; just pull out slowly and as hard as you can without hurting yourself.  I was able to get it out successfully, but I am currently stuck at removing the bell below the agitator.  Good luck!

Leaks from underneath

Drain Pump 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.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer is leaking water the tub seal and bearing might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal and bearing can be replaced. This is common and relatively easy to replace.
Tub Seal Kit If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal kit can be replaced. This is common and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Spin Seal If the washer is leaking water the tub spin seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub spin seal can be replaced. This is common and relatively easy to replace.
Tub Seal If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. This is common and relatively easy to replace.

Tub to Pump Hose If the washer is leaking water the hose from the tub to the pump might be split or torn. Don't try to cut off the bad piece of hose and stretch it to fit the pump, this will put strain on the remainder of the hose and may cause a sudden and complete failure of the hose which will dump potentially hundreds or thousands of gallons of water onto the floor because the next time the washer tries to fill all of the water will end up on the floor and so the washer will never shut off the valve. Any time there is a damaged hose, replace it completely with the OEM part.

Washing Machine Fill Hose If the washer is leaking water, check the fill hoses on the back of the washer, this is the most common place for water to leak. If the washer still has the original black rubber fill hoses replace them with stainless steel or some other, more durable hose.

Drain Hose If the washer is leaking water check the drain hose. The most common places for the hose to spring a leak is from the connection to the pump out to the back of the washer. Another common occurrence is when the washer gets pushed too far back against the wall.

Water leaking out of bottom of washer

There are only a few issues that I usually see with kenmore direct drive washers pertaining to leaks. To check everything you can do it from the bottom. Pull the unit out and lean it back against the wall. Make sure that you have enough slack on fill hoses and drain hose. These are the list of things to check.
1) the pump mounted on the front of the motor. Check the backside and see if its worn through and it could also leak from the center where it goes on the motor shaft.
2) The hoses that connect to the pump.
3) There is a spring that hooks into the back of the tub which will sometimes rust out causing the tub to lean forward during fill and the water splashes off the backguard. (if the spring rusted out you can redrill a hold in the base of the washer and reconnect it)
4) The pressure switch fill tube got ripped out of place this is the clear tube located on the side of the tub. (this would be typical to see if when the washer is in spin and you open the lid it comes to a hard halt). In which case you can tip the machine back and carefully spray some wd40 or white lithium grease into the brake. (be careful not to get any on the clutch which is the silver disk on top of the motor).

Let me know if this helps.

Kenmore 600 series washer has water pouring out from underneath any usual suspects to cause this?

The following link will give you some ideas of things to inspection for when trying to determine where a leak may be coming from on a Kenmore top loader:

If your washer is gushing from underneath, I would immediately suspect the air hose has come loose from the air dome on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. If the air dome is not cracked or broken, all you need to do is reattach the air hose. Read item 4 under the "Other Items to Consider" section in the link I provided, and it will explain this.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this help you.

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 70 series is leaking water. Could it be the pump?

It depends on WHERE the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the FRONT area of the washer, the drain pump or drain hoses are suspect. If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, the water inlet hoses, water inlet valve, or dispenser hoses may be suspect. If the leak is coming from under the CENTER portion of the wash tub, the tub seal or wash tub may be suspect.

The first step is to remove the exterior washer case to gain access to view. The following link explains how to replace a water pump (if required) on your washer, but also includes all the steps necessary to access the washer interior:

Allow the washer to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn it off before unplugging and removing the washer casing. The washer will not run once you disconnect the lid switch connector, so you will need some water in the tub to see where the leak may be coming from.

NOTE: If the problem IS a leaking pump, these pumps are not serviceable and will need to replaced.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
