This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

(It sounds a bit complicated but it's not really that difficult.)

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

Appears you have a drain blockage.
Switch off fridge let it stand for a couple of hours . At the rear bottom you will find a compressor and a drip tray . Above the drip tray there should be a tube that drains water from the freezer compartment. Using a stiff wire try and insert it into the drain tube thus clearing the blockage.

The internal drain may be clogged with debris, I'd check that if visible. If not that, may be defect from manufacturing process.

do you have the drip pan in place underneath? If yes, does it have a crack in it?

The sudden puddle could be caused each defrost cycle.

Dripping water dispencer


Dripping problem is from 2 sources.  Faulty water valve or faulty water connector behind refrigerator.  If the dripping is constant and doesn't seem to end, then it's a faulty water valve.  If the dripping stops after awhile, then the water connector is allowing air into the water line causing the dripping.  Have that connection checked to make sure that it's securely in place.
