That is probably a leaky pump. Pretty dang easy fix IF you knows the trick. HERE is an award winning short film on how to access the innards of this precious piece of machinery. After looking over the movie you might want to take a gander at the page title top loader blues.

Hello, the most likely cause is the pump. Kenmore's are direct drive machines which means they do not have a belt. The pump is hooked up directly to the motor. To confirm this is the pump tip the machine back so that you can access it underneath. Make sure you wedge something underneath so it does not fall on you. Next take a look where the pump joins onto the motor shaft, this is where you will find the leak. This pump is a sealed unit so you will have to replace the whole pump. You can do this by removing the inlet and outlet pipes. Next with a screwdriver release the 2 clips holding the pump and remove the pump.....reassemble with new pump in reverse order. Good Luck!! If you have any further question's please feel free to comment. Mike

SOURCE: washer leaking water from underneath

Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.

My kenmore elite topload washer is leaking underneath washing machine leaving a puddle whats causing this?


depends. first and foremost, I would fill the unit up about halfway with water, with tub being empty of any clothing. Tilt the machine back where you can look underneath it real good. see if you see any leaks with it half full of water. If you don't see any leaks, put the unit back on all fours, and put it into drain/spin. After tub empties of water, tilt unit back again and check for leaks near the drain pump and hose. If you need any further assistance, look for me on 6ya

My washer is leaking from underneath the machine. What is the cause?


It could be a few things, a hosehas a hole in it, the water pump is leaking , or the cenbter seal on the transmission is leaking. Best way to check is to put some water in it, have someone help you lean it back and look underneath to locate the leak. If the water is leaking only in the agitate cycle and not as its filling then its your center seal.

Water is leaking from the underneath, at the front of the machine


The drain pump is located at the front, underneath. The drain pump has probably failed and will need to be replaced.
