Question about KitchenAid Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a 21 year old kitchen aid washing machine. When we fill the washer up, it leaks from underneath, we are pretty sure it is not the pump. Does that agitator come apart?

My Kitchen Aid clothes washer is leaking water from the bottom.


HI couple things to check, water hoses coming into washer, tip the washer back and look underneath and see if you can see where its coming from, most common leak on this one is the drain pump which is located right on the front of the motor, if you tip the washer back its a plastic pump with 2 big hoses going into it, they usually crack and leak water from there. They are only about $30.00 to buy.

Leaking whirlpool washer


Probably the pump seal - you need to replace the pump, which is located at the front.

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 pours out from washer underneath


The most common leak for those washers is from the drain pump a really easy and inexpensive repair. It is located underneath toward the front. To diagnose turn on water to tub fill 1/4 the way, pull out machine about 2 feet, tilt backward,you can use a mirror, I just poke my head under. is should be clearly evident where the leak is. The tools to change the pump it requires a screwdriver and pliers. There are two clips and to hose clamps,remove and replace in reverse order.

Washer leaking when filling up tub


Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water runnning out from bottom of washing machine


Barbarahaps,
I had a similiar problem with a Brand X washer. the problem may be your water pump. if so, it is an easy fix for someone who is mechanically inclined. you first must see where the water is leaking from. when i did this, i securly placed my washer on cinder blocks so that i could see underneath it, and let it fill with a little bit of water, then i could clearly see the water leaking out of the water pump. the key concern here is safety, make sure that the machine fills with only a little bit of water, and then cut the power off to the machine to ensure it doesn't start going through its cycle while up on the blocks, creating a potential hazard. If it is the waterpump, find a washer repair store, tell them the year and model machine you have, and get a water pump on order. the water pump is a pretty straight foward repair--you disconnect power from the machine, turn off and disconnect the water supply, disconnect the drain pipe, and tip over the washer to expose its under side. you disconnect the hoses going to the water pump, remove the attaching bolts, and install the new pump. then you hook everything back up and you should be good to go. hope this helps.
