Hi,
Its possible that your trans. is going to need replaced. Maybe have some bad seals on the trans. As far as the water leak goes. Could be a tub seal, maybe some worn inlet hoses, maybe a leaky inlet valve.

We hope this gives you a start on your appliance repair. Anymore questions please feel free to reply back.

Kenmore 70 Series Top Loading Washer Leaks


If this is a Kenmore TOP LOADER, you need to remove the exterior cabinet in order to access the washer interior and sufficiently inspect to determine where your leak may be coming from. This is much easier than it sounds. The following link explains how:

In the majority of cases with a top loader, the water pump begins to leak. These pumps are not serviceable and require replacing if damaged. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

Follow the tips in the link provided and make sure you inspect all hoses and tub seals as well. This is a very simple repair that you can perform without the assistance of a repairman. The average cost of a pump is about $35.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located along the wash tub rim under the lid), so I can determine what washer configuration you have. I hope you find this information helpful.

I have a Kemore 80 series washer model not filling properly


Check the inlet hoses for plugged screens at the faucet ends. The screens are usually replaceable if you can't get them clean in a white vinegar/hot water solution. Check the inlet ports to the washer for similar screens. Hope this helps!

Kenmore series 70 squealing and leaking water


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.

It sounds as if your pump is bad.

See the following illustrated description of how to access and check / replace the pump.

Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Leaking in the back


If you bought a new washer and you still have a leak, i guess it was not the washer but where it drains into. Sink or stand pipe has a leak. unless you are useing the old drain hose from your old washer. Dry up everything and look for the sorse of water with a bright light when the washer drains .
