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

HI: My washer will not drain all the water out at the end of the wash can you help me out


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

If you take the top off, you can see the whole part called the dispenser, https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/11042832200/0583/0153200.html
Check all the hoses etc. Yes you can even run the machine with the top off and see where the leak is. To take the top off there are three screws in the back at the top and when you remove those, the whole top lifts a slides back and comes off.

Clothes wet after spin


Hi, if clothes are wet after spinning, check.......
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag), a worn clutch (GE/Hotpoint), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ 9010PG and it was leaking last time I ran a load. It seems to be coming out the front end. I check the discharge hose and it is well into the wall and the machine....


If the leak is coming from under the front of the washer, this is commonly caused by a leaking drain pump or drain hoses. These pumps are not serviceable and will require replacing.

If the leak is coming from the back of the washer, this is commonly caused by a leaking water inlet valve or associated dispenser hoses.

If the leak is coming from under the center of the wash tub, this can be caused by a bad tub or cracked outer tub shell. If the seal is leaking, tell-tale signs of water marks will be visible on the gearcase (transmission). If the tub is cracked, it can be temporarily repaired with 2 part epoxy, but will ultimately require replacement (not a common problem).

Now...if the leak begins when the washer starts to fill and is a huge gush of water, this is caused by the air hose coming loose from the air dome. The air dome is a small plastic air gap on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. There is a small rubber air hose that connects to it and runs all the way to the pressure switch inside the operator console (located behind the load level selector knob). This is what shuts the water off at the appropriate water level. If the hose comes loose, there will be a huge gush of water pouring out of the wash tub (air dome) when the tub reaches about 1/4 full.

In any case, you will need to remove the outer washer casing to access the interior. Follow these steps:

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.

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.


To re-install the case, follow these steps:

1. With the lid of the washer open, grasp the 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.


If any of these symptoms sound familiair, and you need addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: If the drain pump IS the problem and you need to replace it, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and use a wet/dry shop to pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the drain lines. The pump is easy to replace. Simply loosen both drain hoses, pop the two retaining clips that hold the pump in place, and pull it off the drive mot shaft.

Washer will not drain water and is leakiing from


HI, this leak is caused by the back up or clog in the drainage system. use the following text to troubleshoot this issue.



Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).


If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
