I'm 94 years old and just had a friend replace the hoses and faucet connector, because it wouldn't stay locked onto my faucet.

Now it's leaking out of the bottom all over the floor, any suggestions?

Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92579110

LEAKING:

See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

The illustrations also show how to remove the transmission.

OIL

The black oil / fluid that you see is likely coming from the transmission.

Since it seems to be "spraying" around the inside of the cabinet, I'd assume that it is leaking from the top seal between the transmission and clutch.

See the following for a parts breakdown of Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

If you look at page 15, you'll see a Seal, Gearcase Cover. It is possible that that is the cause of your transmission leak.

The rust on the bottom of the transmission may (hopefully) be simply caused by the water leak.

I'd remove the gearcase cover (8 bolts) in order to check the gearcase cover seal, and to check the oil level. The Whirlpool transmission takes about 15oz or 80-90 weight oil.

The cold water line now takes a long time to fill for a rinse. Yes, I checked the hose to its wall outlet.


FYI, Only 3 potential issues would typically cause this problem.... in order of simplicity to correct:
1. Clogged screen in the water connector(s). Remove the cold water line going to the washer - both ends. Inspect and clean the screen(s) and blow through the hose to varify that it is clear.
2. Solenoid that allows water into the washer is failing. Reverse the cold and hot hoses. Does the problem move to the hot side? If so, the problem is the solenoid-replace it.
3. If number 2 does follow the hose transfer, the faucet washer has broken and is blocking the water flow. SHUT off the water supply to the house, open another faucet to relieve the water pressure, replace the washer in the cold water shut off valve at the wall.

On my wslp1100 model its very very hard to connect the hose to the faucet adapter, it just does not want to go in ,also it leak's a lot of water from where the hose connects to adapter , I have to wrap a...


Hi... I had the same problem. Instead of trying to figure out the faucet/adapter issue (was too pissed off) :) I took my old washer hose and just used that. Connect the washer hose to your sink and the washer just like it would be if you used that adapter hose. You will want to make sure it is tighten good or it will leak a little...and make sure that the adapter hose end is in your sink because that is where the used water empties out from.
Hope this helps.

Got a Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load washer from my old man, hasn't been used in 5 years... sat in my basement for the first month i lived here unhooked and unused... FINALLY, got a dryer, hook everything...


A burst hose or a broken hose connector clamp most likely. Open the back after disconnecting power. Use bright flashlightto see where its dripping from and confirm the hose-clamp is brokem/ open or a connecting hose is burst. Carry broken hose to hardware store like Rona for a replacement tubing, cut to size and re-instal, voila!

Kenmore Washer leaks


When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Kenmore series 70 top load washer - cold water fill very slowly.


The screens in the line are clogged. There is usually a screen in the washer hose at the point where it is connected to the faucet as well as one by the water inlet valve. NEVER REMOVE THE SCREEN BY THE WATER VALVE. As for the one in the cold water fill hose, that can be cleaned or replaced.
