    Had water underneath and some coming out bak of holes in back cover...found hose coming from multi-valve to top of drum had come loose from it's connection. The connection locks in by placing the connector in the hole and turning ninety degrees.

Same thing here. The rinse[?] hose goes to a little attachment that you fasten into the drum with a 1/4 turn. It worked its way loose. Had to remove the hot and cold lines to get to it but no biggie.

Kenmore Washer only leaking from one area

Ive never worked on a Kenmore but it may just be the overflow outlet. All washing machines have an overflow which will dump water out from the top of the tub if it overfills but sometimes on high fill water level, clothes can splash around and cause a "wave" of water to splash out over the overflow outlet. Check to see if the leak only occurs when you have selected high level fill.

Washer is working during spin, meaning it's still

Hi, a Kenmore washer that is not filling with water may have clogged inlet screens. Place a bucket underneath the hoses to catch any leftover water. Unplug the washer and turn off the water supply. Remove the water hoses from the back of the washer and inspect the screens inside the inlet ports. Often, these clog with sediment. Clean the screens with a small toothbrush. After cleaning, reattach the hoses and turn the water supply and power back on.

Another reason the washer might not fill is something interfering with the water pump. Check the connecting hoses on the water pump to make sure they are not clogged. With the hoses disconnected, check the water pump for obstructions.

How do you replace the mixing valve on a kenmore series 80

Water Inlet (Mixing) Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Safety first. Unplug the machine.
  2. Shut off the water supply valve.
  3. Place a bucket or pan under the water inlet valve to catch residual water from the fill hoses.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the water inlet valve then drain the residual water into the bucket or pan.
  5. Remove the screws holding the console at the back of the machine. On some models, the screws are hidden under the console's removable end caps. To remove, pull the top of the end caps to the front of the machine. On some models, the console is secured to the machine by clips under the front corners of the console. Use a putty knife and insert it's blade under the front corners of the console then push it until the clips are released.
  6. Lift the console then flip it towards the back of the machine.
  7. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness connector from the body of the machine.
  8. Lift the lid, grab the front rim of the cabinet, not the tub, then rock the cabinet to the front of the machine and pull it all the way.
  9. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve to the back of the machine.
  10. Move the clamp holding the inlet hose to the water inlet valve to remove it.
  11. Install the new water inlet valve and reassemble the cabinet and the console in reverse of the disassembly steps given above.
Feel free to ask for further assistance if necessary.

The reason for the leak is probably the "boot". It is a rubber seal that seals around the agitator shaft. It costs about 20 dollars to replace. Drain washer dry! you have to open the top of the whole washer (the normal door is in the top.), remove the agitator by pulling straight up. you will see about 8 bolts in the bottom. remove them and pull the "tub" straight up. You should see the boot and how to remove it from there.

Removing the top of a Kenmore Elite Oasis Washer to replace hose


Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Oil and water leak

Chances are they are not related if the water is clean.These units can run quite a while dripping small amounts of oil. The drain hose is a possibility but there are other places it can leak from. Call a local tech he can run the machine with the cabinet removed and should be able to find the source of the water leak. good luck

Kenmore washer 80Series water leak

First of all, you never want to tip this machine over, it can cause oil to leak from the transmission. The best way to locate the leak is to fill and run the machine with the cabinet removed. Begin by removing the two trim caps on either end of the control panel, they clip on, and should pop off by hand or a slight pry with a flat screwdriver. Then, remove the two screws securing the panel to the cabinet and flip the panel up. There should be two clips securing the cabinet to the frame (gold colored). Pop out these clips with a screwdriver for leverage. Next disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector on the cabinet. The cabinet should now be ready to pull off the frame. Plug the machine back in and set it to run a normal cycle, let it fill and agitate, (some models will not agitate without the lid switch being closed, in which case you will need to use a jumper wire). Biggest problem areas are the Pump, water valve, hoses, or possibly the plastic tub itself.

Water leak on occasion front load washer purchased around 2002/03

You need to remove the kick panel (under the front door). There are two screws at the very bottom of the kick panel, one in each corner.
This will give you visibility to see where the leak is coming from.
On the right hand side is the drain pump. The black hose goes from the pump,out the rear and into your drain pipe. It is secured by a clamp and is one possible source of leak.
If that connection is dry, look underneath the tub where the two parts, front and back of drum, come together. there is an o ring sealing the two sections and this is another source of water leak. (major problem is this is leaking)
Failing this you will just have to trace the source of the leak. You may have to take off the top of the washer to check the water inlet hoses which run on the top of the machine but would still show as a leak under the machine. Good luck.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top

hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.
