HI there,

Check the followings -

1.  Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
2. The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 
3. Inlet spout -check for a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My kenmore 80 series will not fill to wash - it starts to fill with water and then starts draining immediately??


If the washer drains immediately as it attempts to fill,or if it has problems with maintaining the water level after it does fill, this can commonly be caused by what is known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. This could be a simple matter of drain hose placement. If this does not correct your problem, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Sounds like your pressure switch behind the control panel is stuck. Try unhooking the tube going to the switch and see if it breaks free. If not replace the switch.

Washer fills and drains repeatedly


Have a look at the routing of your drain hose. It sounds a bit as if: a. The highest point of the hose isn't high enough (you normally want to aim for about 3 feet off the ground) - so that water starts draining from the machine before it is finished filling. and b. There isn't an effective air break or anti-siphon valve where the drain hose goes into the domestic drainage system - so that once the machine starts to drain by itself, it continues until empty. A.
