The problem is commonly caused by a leaking drain pump, or drain hose. To access the washer interior components, you need to remove the exterior cabinet case. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

With the case removed, you have an unobstructed view of all the washer internal components. Check all the drain hose connections and physical condition of the hoses to ensure there are no cracks or loose connections. If you determine the pump is leaking, it is not serviceable and cannot be repaired. The pump is strictly mechanical (no electrical components) and only has one moving part - the impeller. Typically, the pumps can develop cracks from normal wear and tear and begin to leak. If it leaks, it must be replaced. The following link epxlains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top

Many of the steps are a repeat. If you already have the washer case removed, then skip down to step 8. Replacement parts can be purchased from any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool manufactured washer (Kenmore) is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader


If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

My Kenmore 70 Series is leaking out of the front


Good day,
It sounds very much like the pump, which is located front center behind the cabinet.
I'm going to add a link. It isn't about the pump, but it shows you how to access that area.
Be aware that the screws that hold the top console may be different than shown.
They may be exposed on the front ends, covered by plastic covers which have to be unclipped, or as shown.

Kenmore series 70 squealing and leaking water


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It sounds as if your pump is bad.

See the following illustrated description of how to access and check / replace the pump.
