Re: leak in washing machine

Can you tell where the water is hitting the belt from is it in the middle of the wash tub or from the outside of the wash tub please let me know if its from the middle of the tub its probably the seal that keeps the agitator from leaking, and if its from the side the in lines from the water spicket or the valve that controls hot and cold in the machine could be leaking, please look closely and try to see where the wateris dripping down from. thank you, then let me know

Washing machine top load leaking water bottom model # LXR7244JQ1

The pump is near the front, bottom of the machine. You need to unplug and unhook it from the water supply. Then get a wet and dry vacuum and remove all the water from the machine by using the vacuum on the drain hose. Then you can lay the machine down to get to the bottom of it and you can replace the pump.

January 31, 2010 Kenmore top loading series 80 leaking from bottom toward front. It started during a wash cycle. I put two wet towels back into the empty washer and put on spin, leaking reoccurred. ...

is the pump leaking?or you could have bad tub seals,follow the center trany shaft up to the tub and see if it leaks there,is it noisy when spinning,you gotta just get in there with a light and look around to see where the water is coming from,if you sent pictures they didn't show up,remove the front cover,take out the two screws that hold the console down,remove the two clips with a screw driver and unplug the lid switch wires and pull the cover back and remove it

Kleenmaid top-load washing m/c leaks water and then smokes!

It sounds like you are leaking from the bottom of the unit. If you are leaking at the top then you need to check the water inlet valves, and also the drain pump and all water hoses. This doesnt sound like a seal issue.

Mav7000 spins but does not extract well. Clothes remain wet

wet as in standing water left in tub, or wet as in extra drippy???
standing water would be bad or pluged pump, drippy would be bad belt, pulley or tensioner assembly..
also if pump turns hard or has seized, the seal/bearing may have seized, causing a slowdown in spin speed besides burning the belt, leaking, and making a mess..
best of luck,
