    I pulled the front cover off the washer just below the door. I saw what looked like a knob and I unscrewed it there was a basket attached to the knob, I found $0.35 in change. I cleaned the seal and the housing and re-installed. Running a cycle to see if this solved the problem. All other connections seem dry.

It is important to check under the washer to find the point of the drip . But to have an idea there is a drain hose coupled to the drum, there is a drain valve/drain pump and the drum. Now all the mentioned parts can be the suspected items on our list.
So your first hand info is very much important to confirm. Lift up the washer to have a space to peep into like jacking up the car. This is important as we need not unnecesarily speculate. Use a good light and switch on. Identify the leaking part which can be one of the above. If before the wash it can be the inlet valve , and a possible failure in the drum spindle through which water can leak during wash.
So check this out.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer diagnostic mode


If you are going to clean out the strainer compartment down below, the best way to avoid a mess is to shop vac out the water through the drain hose before you start. At that point there should be almost no water in the machine. (Also a good idea if you are moving the machine. And remember to reinstall the four shipping bolts in the back that were there when you first got the machine).

Kenmore Elite he5t sounds like a jet engine getting ready for takeoff during the spin cycle. It is extremely loud. Not sure why it all of a sudden started doing this.


Ahh yes, hopefully it's less than a year old. This is likely the main bearing located within the plastic tub. If it has sounded like this for quite some time, you will need a few new parts. The plastic tub (or "tub kit") and the stainless steel drum (which includes the shaft that the bearing rotates on). When did you buy it? If its under a year old, labor will be warrantied with the parts, but the parts themselves should be under warranty as they have a 10 and 25 (or lifetime) year warranty each.
Good luck! We just had this fixed, but now have a new problem. the front button panel will not light up. :(

My Kenmore Elite he5t washing machine isn't draining. My daughter put in a load of old material, and some of it just fell apart when it got wet. We cleaned out the junk trap down by the pump, and that...


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

I have a 21 year old Kenmore washing maching (model 82873800). It is leaking when it is filling up. The water is not coming from the hoses or the center shaft. When I lean the washer over, I can reach...


I'd go to the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.82873800%29

and check the sub-components lists for a gasket or part under the tub that keeps the water from leaking.

With a 21 year old washer, it's likely that one of the rubber or plastic gaskets has finally worn.

Water leaking


Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely you will have to get under to check it out. Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides Do a wash and repeat. But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.
