If your FRONT LOADER is leaking, the following link can give you guidance on how to inspect the washer to determine where the source of the leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

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

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

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: The leak may only appear with heavier loads, because more water is in the drum and it is being displaced by the laundry load.

I just moved and all of a sudden it won't drain completely


In the move, the removal men tipped it over and have split one of the hoses. First off check the discharge hose at the back for cracks, kinks or crushing..

Front load washer leaking on the floor


Check the bellows gasket real carefully for a hole, and make sure the door gasket is good and no problems with how it fits to the front of the machine.
Pull the machine out, and watch it from all angles with any covers off that can be removed without interfering with function. Run a quick rinse and see what leaks.

Kenmore elite washer model 20952992 pouring water


We had the same problem. The bleach dispenser tray is located on the drum below the bleach storage pan. The dispenser tray has very small holes that were plugged by rust from the hose clamp that attached the dilution water supply hose to the bleach storage pan. I removed the top of the washing machine to discover the problem, but it may be solved by attaching a flexible tube or small hose to the end of a vacuum cleaner hose and cleaning out the dispenser tray. There is room between the dispenser tray and the storage pan and is located in the front right corner.
