Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

Admiral Washer Model#LNC6762B71

Please, I bought this machine about 3 years ago. Washing for 1 person and light use.
Water leaks into the tub after the machine has turned off.
The machine makes a very loud noise when it spins and sometimes it quits spinning.
I hired a service company to repair the machine and they charged me $91.00 just to troubleshoot and advise me the following:
1. Top and bottom bearings
2. Water Valve
How is this possible when iit is only 3 years old and very little use?
Service Company will charge me another $290.00 to make the the repairs that they feel is needed.
Please advise me.
Thanks

Water is leaking from the bottom of the machine and will not fill up


Hello,

Your water leak can come from 3 areas:

1) drain hose on back of washer is coming off / splitting / getting loose

2) water pump is leaking (cracked?) or has a gasket that has deteriorated.

3) hose between tub and water pump has come off / split / became loose.

Since your washer isn't able to hold water, it makes it easy to remove the clothes, and lean the washer forward to see what is going on. Most washers' mechanicals can be acessed from either the bottom, or from the back via access panel. The water leaks are generally a pretty easy repair.

My admiral leaks as soon as the water turns on, it appears to be coming out of the housing unit for the hoses rather then the tub or the hoses.


There are a few places that a washer could be leaking:

1) the water valve itself, it may be cracked (most are plastic), or the hose connecting it to the spout may be loose.

2) the hose from the water valve to the spout (as above) could be loose from spout or water valve. It also may be cracked or have a cut in it from wear on other parts.

3) the spout may be damaged or loose from the back plate making it misaligned so the water spills over the side of the tub.

4) the washtub may be missing a spring that keeps it centered in the machine causing the fill spout to spray water over the side of the washtub.

5) There may be a leak in the tub, pump, hoses for the pump (not likely since when it leaks)

That's all that there is to leak when it does not leak all the time. (if it were all the time you could throw the supply hoses and valves in the mix.

Hope that helps

Admiral Top Load Washer Model LNC6762B71 overflowed


Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.

Washer belt is loose, & seem to slip at start of spin cycle.


there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?
