Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

How do I get to the inside?

I have some minor sporadic leaking. I suspect that this is due to either the hoses, or even more likely, the dog hair needs to be removed from the filter.

But how the heck to I get to it? Tip it over? I don't see a way to open it from the front and the manual is useless on illustrating where either of these things are once I get into the machine.

I remember watching my father repair their washer, but there was a front panel that opened.

Look along the front seam of the washer where the top panel meets the front. There is a retaining clip about 2 inches in from each side that you need to release to get the top to lift up. Use a putty knife to fit inside the seam and push straight in, while lifting on the top at the same time. The clip will release and the top will come open. HINT: A second set of hands and an additional putty knife will make this process a lot easier. Also, as you lift the top you will need to hold on to the lid so it doesn't fly open when you lay the top back. Using some duct tape to hold the lid shut prior to opening the top will keep this from happening.

You mentioned some sporadic leaking...since the tub is suspended from four support rods, there can be a lot of side to side motion of the tub when the load gets unbalanced. The fill hoses are mounted to the top of the washer, while the dispenser tray is located on the tub rim. So, when the tub shakes in a significant manner, sometimes the fill hoses do not meet up with the dispenser. This causes water to pour on to the floor and miss the tub. This type of washer has a large tub and was designed for large capacity loads. Washing smaller loads can sometimes lead to frequent out of balance issues. I believe the manufacturer has come up with a new improved main control board that alleviates some of this. If you wash larger loads and keep the tub balanced some of your leaking may go away. Just a thought...I hope this information helps you.

Bosch washing machine leaks


what size is the line you are using for the gray water. what i mean is if you are trying ti use the same size hose as the original discharge
hose, the pressure to high. the hose original was about 1 inch diameter, the hose use to go up than the hose hook shape goes into the drain pipe thats 2-3 inches diameter for draining the water went into the sewer system, if your trying to use 1-1/2 hose, the diameter not enough air or room for all that water. i dont think the lenth the issue its the diameter and amount of pressure that being forced down small hose or pvc pipe.

Washer leaking from top


Sounds like it's plugged and the water is thrown by the centrifugal force. Sometimes stuff can get between the drum and tub, plugging the drain. This can be sporadic, sometimes no problem cuz the item is away from the drain hole during extract.
Sometimes minor partial disassembly will allow you to see between the drum and tub. A pick up tool can snag things down deep.

Kenmore 70 Series leaking water from bottom


I used to work for Sears as a home repair technician and washers and dryers were my specialty. Most likely the problem is with your water pump. I ran across this issue many times and what happens is people leave things in their pockets and it destroys the pump. A hair pin or coins, I have even seen socks and under ware get stuck in them causing leaks. What you want to do is tip the machine back and look at the pump. It is located right at the front of the washer with two hoses connected to it. You will want a pair of hose clamps though if you don't want water all over your floor. Disconnect the pump and look inside it for anything causing the motor inside to not work, this will cause slow draining and even leaking. If it looks clear then look for any cracks in the pump. If there is a crack then it needs to be replaced. Just call your local appliance repair place and tell them what you need. Pumps run around 30 bucks or less on average for Kenmore's. If everything looks good on the pump check the hoses that run from the pump and make sure there are no cracks or holes in the hoses. If they look good then the only thing left is the tub and the overflow tube. Chances are though that your pump is what the problem is and it is an easy fix. Good luck.

firstly you will need to take out the soap drawer and thoroughly clean it and the spray holes that are above the soap drawer. secondly i would reduce the cold water pressure to a fast trickle/jet that way it will not be spraying all over the place. the filter sounds as though it will need cleaning out. unplug machine, from the rear is a metal plate, remove it to gain access to the bottom hose-this incorperates the filter. undo secure jubilee clip and lower hose. remove debris and check the hose and pump for further obstructions. you should be ok after that. try to beat out the dog blankets outside b4 washing to remove as many hairs as poss. tone.
