    We have a Kenmore Elite washer that leaked in the front. The technician came out and determined that the bleach holder was getting clogged with debris and the water would overflow. We just had to pop out the bleach holder, clean out the dish below it and the water stopped leaking. Quick fix for an annoying problem.

The water pump is the front and has probably failed.
To access it REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways. 1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward. 2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw. 3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

The pump is mounted to the motor with two spring clips. Look at the face of the pump for any signs of melting or blistering. (grey bubbling) or the shaft of the motor for rusting.

If the pump appears OK, inspect the drain hoses for splits or cracks and that the hose clamps are properly secured.

I get oil stains on some items of clothing in each wash. I've tried discontinuing use of fabric softener as suggested by Sears, and I've also tried several loads of CLR to clean any grime or rust build up....


If this is a front loader, it is the bearings on the tub shaft. I just replaced a set on my front loader for the 2nd time. It is not a real easy fix but mine cost only cost 25.00 for the 2 bearings and seal. Not from Sears.

check the screw feet, on the front corners, one may be not screwed down far enough to be 'tight' to the floor allowing a small movement that makes a lot of noise, halting under pressure suggests this is the case
