Question about Kenmore 42822 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water is leaking into the drum after the wash is complete if we don't shut off the water to the washer right away. After we left water on overnight, the floor in front of the washer was soaked. Is there an internal shut off valve that might have gone round the bend?

I have seen this, what is happening is that your water valve is not closing, replace water valve

After doing wash ...while empty and off...the washer slowly fills up with water overnight...approx 3" deep of water in drum...slow leak valve maybe?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Yep!
If your washer is both hot and cold fill turn one of them off overnight. You will then tell which water inlet control valve is not closing correctly and therefore which one needs replacing ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

Hello ! I have the LG wm2277hs washer machine. the problem that we are having right now is the water leaked after washing. Pleaase show me how to trouble shoot that, thanks


Hi


The water leaking on floor can be a serious issue as this may cause the inside parts to malfunction or in some cases rusting of the body. To check where exactly it is leaking; inspect the leak while it is running. After the cycle is complete quickly turn off the power, lie down the machine on left/right side and check from where the water is leaking. If it is the hose or drain pump then check whether hose is connected firmly and is not cut. If it not the hose/pump inspect if the leak is on the drum corner or anywhere back of the drum. However, if it is leaking from the circumference then it is due to transmission seal. To replace the transmission seal you'll need to disassemble the washer and the drum assembly.

Please post back in case of any issues. Hope this helps...

Water Leak inside drum


That's because the water fills from around the door bellow via the dispenser. Any small water leakage will probably go unoticed because it drains into the seam in the rubber boot into the wash tub UNDER the wash basket. As it accumulates, it will eventually fill to a point where it is visible in the wash basket. It sounds like you have a water inlet valve that is failing. That's the only way water gets into the washer. It passes from the the water taps, through the inlet valve, through the flowmeter and into the dispenser. If the inlet valve is leaking, you probably have a diaphragm in the valve not closing properly, or a bad solenoid. I would recomend replacing it. To access, you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off. The water inlet valve is located on the left-hand side in the rear of the washer (facing from the front) where the fill hoses connect. You will need to shut off the water supply, disconnect main power, remove the electrical connections to the solenoids, remove the any hoses and finally the mounting screw to remove. If you post back with your complete model number (located aorund the door opening), I can provide you with a part number. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
