Your solenoid valve is probably not sealing it is on the back on the washer where the water lines connect. They do go bad after a while and are fairly cheap and easy to replace. $20-$30 dollar range. Just remember to unplug the washer before you replace it. You should be able to order it online using the model number and serial number of the unit. Good luck You should only need a 5/16 wrench or socket and channel locks to replace this item.

Water leaking (dripping) into the drum when machine is off. Drip is coming from where water dispenses into the machine to fill the drum.


Hi just read your posting.The fault with your machine is a faulty water valve.1st turn off the cold tap to the machine and leave for a couple of hrs.If the dripping stops you have a faulty cold valve.If the dripping does not stop then turn off the hot tap and that should stop the leak.Either way to fix this fault a water valve must be replaced.Or you can stop the drip by just turning the taps off after the washing has finished.Hope this helps and please reply for further help if needed.

Slow drip of water inside the drum. Don't see no moisture but I can hear it dripping. No Moisture on the floor. Any ideas where it could be dripping from?


Turn the water faucets off and listen for the drip to stop.
If the dripping noise stops,replace the water inlet valve on the washer were the hoses connect.
Enter your model number in the site referenced here for parts.

Water dripping 1/2 thru wash cycle


I'm just guessing here, but if those spots you mentioned are heater supports and the heaters come on during cycle # 6, then the heat may be deforming the seals so that they leak. It would appear that the fix is to replace those seals, but I would try to build up the outer area with silicon glue (clean the area with rubbing alcohol or acetone first) to see if it would hold the water first. It could be a fairly extensive process to replace the seals (if you can still buy them!). Hope this helps some!

Internal leak on a kenmore top load washer


Yes, very likely is a bad water inlet valve allowing water to leak past it into the drum. Really not a difficult repair with a little help.

Maytag A482 washer from 1985. Leaking water from


probably has a pin hole leak where it has been rubbing the tub. Does the tub have a seal at the top of it where it meets the top. Could be the seal is going bad.

Maytag atlantas top loader water keeps dripping from top of drum


Your water inlet valve is probably leaking by. If the water pressure is too, or if there is sediment build inside the valve, sometimes the solenoids will not close properly. Try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. If not, I would recommend replacing it. Depending on which valve you have, repairclinic.com has two listed for this model washer for $20 to $30. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further assistance.

Kenmore Elite HE3


I don't know if this will help or not, but my machine has gone through (2) fill valve assemblies so far. In one case, it wouldn't fully shut-off and was also erratic. I replaced it (very easy to do) and that fixed the problem. I think my machine is an HE2, but I'd guess it's probably the same parts... (Parts available through the Sears web site. The last one I bought was around $55 for the assembly.)
