    My Kenmore 26834 Top Load Washer leaks when filling with water. Is in the same location it has been in for a long time. I changed the exit hoses and this was not the problem. Water seems to be coming from front of the machine somewhere inside. Machine will still fill and function, just makes a mess too. Do you have a solution for this?

As the washer fills the water will go up the drain hose to the same height as the watr fills in the tub. That is why the drain needs to be higher then the tub or the water can just run down the drain.

Washer continues to fill and does not stop. is there a level or pressure switch that is problem or something else? Kenmore 80 series


if there is no water leaking from the unit.then stop the washer pull your drain hose up so it is at least as high as the top of the washer make sure not to to take it all the way out of the wall.you should here water draining out of the hose once the water has stopped restart you washer and it should stop filling.if it does not the yes you have a fill valve sensor problem.the drain hose usually always holds some water and during the filling process if the drain hose if very low it will cause the water to start gravity eeding out of the washer that is why raising the hose helps out.i hope this helps your problem.i would like to now how it worked out for you good luck.

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.

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Kenmore 80 series leaking


well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.

Ge top load washer keeps filling with water


most common leak point for washers is the level sensor connector on the lower part of the tank, a small plastic hose.
