Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Hose Having problems once I turn The washer on. It starts running the water and I guess at some point it starts to leak. I pulled the hose out that leads from the washer to the wall and saw that the hose in the machine still had water in it like it was stopped up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The drain hose will always have some water in it after a cycle. when the water level gets down to the point that the pump starts sucking air then the water between the pump and the hose just sits there the pump can't push water with air (we call this cavitating) ANYHOO you have a leak somewhere. open up the machine and turn on a cycle to fill look all over and follow the water to the leak. this unit can be opened up by removing the screws at each end of the control console that fasten it to the top they will be at the front or the back corners depending on the year if you cant find them there may be caps over them the caps pop off the ends tilt the console back and remove the clips at the back corners of the top the whole case will then pull away from the unit you cant run drain/spin because that plug you unplugged to allow the case to be removed is for the lid switch. anyway you can find your leak then plug back in to drain. if no leak then your trans is probably kicking right into spin with no pause and sloshing the water over the top expensive repair that I wouldn't do on my own machine good luck and let me know

I HAVE A LEAK FROM RIGHT BOTTOM OF A SAMSUNG WF448AAP/XXA-000 FROMT LOAD WASHER ONLY HAPPENS DURING RINSE CYLCE


Hello Harlan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your drain hose is in the back on the right hand side. This is a rubber hose. After a time the rubber may be dry rotted and leak or become partly clogged with soap residue.

Once completing the wash cycle the soapy water may have not completely drained due to a partly clogged drain hose by the time the rinse cycle is complete flooding the washer drain pan.

You do not have water in the bottom of the washer because your pump removed it all, but at a slower rate

Ok, Lets fix this ourselves:

1.) On the bottom right front of your washed is a leveling leg.
turn the leveling leg one full turn clockwise. The right front may be pitched down, causing the drain pan level on this corner to be high. Your washer through vibration may have moved slightly. This is not going to solve the problem.

2.) Pull your washing machine out so you can see the drain hose. Run some laundry on heavy load. Observe to see if your drain hose is leaking. Your hose clamps may be loose and require tightening. If it is leaking it needs to be replaced.

3.) Even if your drain hose is not leaking it must be obstructed, flooding the bottom of your unit. This is easily replaced.

The part number for your drain hose is DC97-12534D. It cast about $24.00.

When I hook of the water hoses to the back of washing machine and turn on the water, water spews out of hose


Hello Ifox5858,

I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.

1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops

This should fix your problem.

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washer


sounds like a broken hose ( drain hose ) -- or a loose fitting.
this could also be a cracked mixer valve ( if the water is running when washer is off ).
if you remove the back panel and start the machine and run cycles then you should see the cause of the leak very quickly.

"OE" message


OE is actually DE - Drain Error. Pop open the little door on the bottom left of your washer, and unscrew the cap on the little tube on the left. ***Water will drain out!***
Once the water is out, unscrew the bigger tube on the right. This holds your drain filter. It is likely clogged, so clean it out and reinstall the filter and cap from the small hose.
Hopefully this fixes it!

Leak


You have 3 areas to check. Drain hose, water pump and hot/cold water valves. Any of those 3 areas can be the cause. Most often leaks are caused by loose hoses, but neptunes use a plastic water pump that can clog and lose bearing water seals as well. Try the easy options first, then if those solutions don't point to the cause, remove the front cover and check the water pump for moisture.

This fill hose is leaking on my maytag a612 washing machine. It is leaking at the little plastic thing that the hose runs through. Is it possible just to bypass whatever that is?


Hi FordMan! The little thing is the water inlet valve and it is not possible to bypass it, since that is what allows the water to flow into the washer and is what also shuts the water off, once the tub is at the level needed or selected.

However, you might discover that if you shut off the main water supply valves at the house connection point, you can just tighten the hose connection at the water valve, as it might just be a little bit loose.

If that's not the problem, remove both the hot and cold water supply hoses from the washer side and replace the rubber washers in the hose ends.

And if that doesn't resolve the leaking problem, you'll have to replace the water inlet valve to stop the leak. But try the first 2 steps before you move onto replacing the valve.

If you discover you need a new valve, you can go to www.searspartsdirect.ocm and with the full model number of your washer, locate the replacement valve and see a line drawing of your washer and get the price for the valve. This is an easy repair for most DIYr's to tackle and you should be able to do it, once you've got the parts, in about 20-30 minutes with just a couple of common hand tools. Just remember to unplug the washer before attempting any repair and turn off the water supply connection at the wall near the washer.

I will suggest, as the manufacturers all do these days, that if your machine is over 8-10 years old, you also replace both the Hot and Cold water supply hoses, as hoses tend to start to break down after 8 years and could rupture causing extensive water damage, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kenmore Elite 110.20972992 leaking right before rinse cycle


1. Find out where the leak is coming from. Does it leak constantly or during one part of the cycle?
A constant leak means the leak is in the valve where the hoses hook to the washer, the supply valves, or the lines to the washer from the water supply.
The other two options are when the washer is agitating or pumping the water out between cycles.


2. See if it leaks during both cycles and the test there would be to lift the lid just as it starts to drain and wait to see if the water stops leaking.
If it doesn't, then run the drain cycle to see if it gets worse or better.
Results may not be immediate as it would take a few minutes for whatever water there to finish dripping.


3. Wait until the water has been pumped out, lift the lid and check the drip again.
When the location of the leak has been determined, unless the washer has been frozen, most leaks can be fixed without parts and just using hand tools.
If you have an older, top load washer, the back or front will come off so you can observe where the leak is coming from.

WARNING. You are working with a moving, electrically hot machine that could flood.
You must take your time and not put your hand or hair in somewhere that can catch you.
You should not have to get into the upper control center, thus reducing the shock hazard.

4. Before turning the machine on, remove a cover. On some washers, there are two screws on the bottom L & R front corners that take the front panel loose.
Once the screws are removed, the front cover is hinged at the top and you simply pull the bottom away from the machine until it comes un-hooked, and set the cover aside.

There shouldn't be many exposed wires or ends, but a few. Don't touch the terminals or lay something metal in the machine that could fall on the terminals.


5. Take a flashlight, look for obvious leaks or better, water stains around nuts, hose clamps, etc.
Most likely you'll see some water residue here and there and that would be normal as a washer is wet. Look for puddles, long white streaks, calcium deposits.
Most likely, you won't find standing water, but some clues of where you should look when the machine is running.
Unless this leak is so obivous you can see what's wrong, you don't need to start it and you should repair the problem.
Once possible areas have been identified, you should start the machine as if you had a load in it and start to watch for the leak.

WARNING- Make sure you have no tools laying in the machine and you are out of the way. There are spinning parts and live wires once you turn the machine on.
Stay clear, and watch your hair and hands.

Once the machine is full and starts its cycle, look for leaks.
Let the machine do its cycle and as it goes into each part of the cycle, look for the leak.
Once you find a drip, stop the machine by lifting the lid or pulling out on the control knob, and now observe more closely.
Remember, water runs down; where it drips is not necessarily the place of origin.

6 Find the leak and make the needed adjustment (which will be all that is necessary most of the time).
If it is a part you need, get the make, model number and serial number of the washer and call an appliance parts dealer or repair service if you don't think you can repair the problem.



If the washing machine leaks water while it is filling, pull it away from the wall and see if the water drips from the inlet hoses or valves as the unit fills.
If it does, tighten the faucet packing nuts. Then, inspect the hoses and replace them if they have become cracked.
Also look for cracks in the casing of the inlet valves. Unplug the unit and lift the top to better inspect the valves.

Replace any valves that are cracked.

Valves usually crack when the hot water in the house water supply is heated to greater than 170 degrees.
They also crack if the house is left cold during the water and water is not drained from the unit. A cracked inlet nozzle can leak during fill.
The leaking water will drip down the outside of the tub and collect under the unit. Be sure that the hose connected to the inlet nozzle is tightly clamped.
Replace the nozzle if you find cracks in it.

If the leaking occurs at some time during the wash sequence other than when the machine is filling with water, unplug the unit, remove the back panel and examine the parts under the machine.
You can make a closer inspection by tipping the unit over onto it's front or side.

Tighten hose clamps that have become loose. If water is leaking from the pump, replace the pump.

The gasket between the tub and the splash guard may wear out and leak. To check the gasket, lift the top and remove the snubber and splash guard.
Replace a worn gasket. A hole in the bottom of the tub can develop.
If the hole is less than 1/4 inch in diameter, remove the agitator and basket and seal the hole.
If the hole is larger, replace the washing machine or tub.
