SOURCE: Kenmore Washing Machine

If not a hose leak, check for leakage around the water pump.  On our top-load Kenmore, the leak showed up at the front right of the machine.  Water was leaking where the pump slides onto the motor shaft.   Replacement of pump consists of: (1) unplug power cord and then remove 2 screws at corners of the dial/control panel to tilt it back, (2)  unplug wiring harness, (3) remove two spring clips holding white metal console to the frame then tilt console forward and remove, (4)pump was in front of machine with two black hoses attached via hose clamps - remove the spring clips at top & bottom of pump and remove the two hose clamps, (5) slide new pump onto shaft and reassemble in reverse order.

SOURCE: washing machine is leaking from bottom

Take front off and see where leak is coming from. Most common is either a split hose or bad tub seal. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

SOURCE: water leaks out of bottom of machine olny when

This can happen when the rubber pipe that connects between the electric tap and the washing tank got disconnected .
Usually it happens after washing fully load machine with towel, blankets etc.
Open the back of the machine and check the rubber pipe, if loose or out of position get it back in to place and tight the metal bands that hold it .

Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine when it's filling up


The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking. You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking. Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.

There is a leak at the bottom of the washing machine. Water is coming out the bottom front and bottom left.


The leak is from the drain hoses or the fill pipes.
No need to worry.It's a common issue and easy
to fix of your own.

WASHING MACHINE LEAKING FROM BOTTOM


Check the two lengths of 1/4" plastic tubing, the long one that runs from the filler at the botton left side of the tub, and the short one that runs from the load switch (water level switch) to the shield assembly (formed plastic cover for the controls). When under pressure, the tubing can come loose from the plastic nipple on either side of the shield, leaking water while the tub is filling. If either length of tubing is detached from the nipple, reattach the tubing and use a 1/4" hose clamp to prevent it from detaching again.
