Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Followed the perfect instructions for checking my drain pump on my kenmore elite front loader... found a sock! Was so excited that I fixed the problem then when doing the diagnostics the cover on the drain pump is leaking! :( Tried several times to tighten it but water keeps coming!! Can't figure out problem! Nothing looks damaged!
Check to make sure the o-ring (if equipped with one) is still intact and not rolled or torn. Apply a thin film of petrolium jelly on the threads of the cap and tighten until snug. Carefully grip the handle with a pair of channel locks or pliers and give the cap another 1/4 turn and it should seal. If the cap has an open style handle, use a screwdriver to insert in the handle to give it the last turn to tighten. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

Was there a small rubber O ring gasket on the pump? If it is dammaged or missing it can cause a leak. Also OVER tightening the fasteners on the pump body will deform it and cause a leak.
