SOURCE: removal of front panel HE3 kenmore washer

Follow these steps: 1. Remove the three screws in the back of the machine that holds the top of the washer on. The top case should slide back and then lift off. 2. With the dispenser tray off, remove the torx screw behind it. 3. Now take a putty knife and gently place it under the console just above the door. Gently lift up and pull the console from the left hand side first. It should gradually pop off. Be careful not to damage any of the wire connectors. Lay the console across the top of the washer. 4. Remove door by removing the hinge screws. Support the door while loosening so that it doesn't fall. 5. Feel around behind the rubber door boot at the door opening. There will be a wire retaining hoop holding the rubber boot to the door frame. Find the tension spring at the bottom of the door and pull the hoop out of the groove. 6. Pull door boot off the door frame opening and push it inside the drum. DO NOT remove the boot from the wash tub. 7. Remove the three screws holding the door latch assembly to the front of the washer. 8. The only thing left holding the front of the washer on is four screws. One on each corner at the top and one on each corner at the bottom. Once you remove the last four screws the front of the washer will come right off. I now this seems very involved, but it is simple if you follow the steps given. Reassemble everything in reverse order. Use care when handling the wire harness of the console and the door. Make sure you put the door latch assembly back on FIRST before you reinstall the rubber boot. When reinstalling the door boot reseat the gasket all the way around the door frame first. Then take the wire hoop and reinsert in the groove starting at the 12 o'clock position and work your way around to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. You might want to have a second person assist you with holding the hoop in place at this point. With tension holding the hoop into the groove, take the remaining portion of the wire hoop and pull down while spreading the tension spring apart to snap it back into place along the bottom of the door. This will be your greatest challenge. The console will snap back into place by inserting the bottom edge first then snapping the top into place. Let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Washer Drum Off Center

Hi,

To my knowledge most washers have transfer bolts or retainers that keeps the position of the drum firm while in storage or in transit. there would be 3 or four of them. Please verify that all the transfer bolts were removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Top Loader leaks

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

What does FA mean on the machine


Hello. You didn't state the model number of the washer so my help is limited. The FA error code on some washers indicates the flood sensor has been tripped. (Check for a water leak asap) There is a sensor, usually located at the bottom, rear, that trips if water comes into contact with it.(shorts across the terminals) and causes an immediate shut-down of the washer. I'm assuming this is a front-loading unit. Depending on the model, you will have to either remove the service panel from the middle of the rear panel or, remove the entire metal rear cover of the washer--about 20 screws more or less, the top 3 and middle 2 will be machine thread and not sheet metal screws(have a much coarser thread).
Check for water residue trails( to help you locate the source of the leak. Don't rule out a leak coming from one or more of the inlet water valves located at the top, rear of the washer underneath the top cover. Shut off the water at the wall first, and then do what *I* do--start from the top and work my way down. If the valves *are* leaking, there usually will be rust and moisture around the magnet coils of the suspect valve(s). (i.e. LG washers are notorious for leaking inlet water valves and I keep several sets on the svc van). Also, carefully check out the electric drain pump for a cracked casing or loose hose clamps--I hate those spring clamps--replace them with automobile hose clamps if you can(the kind that you use a screwdriver to tighten). If the valves aren't leaking, CAREFULLY check any and all hoses coming from the dispenser holder on a front-loader and the lines leading to the different dispensers on a top loader. I hope I helped you!

My washing machine leaks & doesn't drain


Is this a FRONT LOADER? Or, a TOP LOADER?

If you have a leaking FRONT LOADER, the following link explains how to access and inspect your washer for leaks:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

In the majority of the cases with front loaders, the door bellow begins to leak. A routine inspection of the seal perimeter will tell you if there are any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


If this is a TOP LOADER, the following link explains how to access and inspect your washer for leaks:

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

In the majority of cases with a top loader, the water pump begins to leak. These pumps are not serviceable and require replacing if damaged. The following link explains how:

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

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at 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 I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

Follow the tips in the link(s) provided and make sure you inspect all hoses and tub seals as well.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER, so I can determine what washer configuration you have. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: The drain issue you referring to may not be a problem at all. It is normal for some residual water to remain in the wash tub below the spin basket. This is the low point of the drain line and some water ALWAYS resides here. If the water is visible in the spin basket, then you have a legitimate concern. In addition: If this is a TOP LOADER, some models use a balance ring on the top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This helps to stabalize the wash tub during the spin cycles and minimize off-balance issues.

WATER COMING OUT UNDER MACHINE


Is this a TOP LOADER? Or, is this a FRONT LOADER?

If this is a Kenmore TOP LOADER, you will need to remove the exterior washer case to inspect the cabinet interior thoroughly to determine WHERE the leak may be coming from. The following link explains:

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

The most common source of leaks on a top loader is a worn drain pump. If the pump is damaged and leaking, it is not serviceable and must be replaced. There is a follow-on link included that explains how to replace one.

If this is a Kenmore FRONT LOADER you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to inspect the cabinet interior. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

The most common source of leaks on a front loader is the rubber door bellow. The bellow can develop cracks, rips or tears with age and needs to replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

If you have any questions about these repairs, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the door or tub rim) so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

Leaking water in washing machine


Front loader or Top Loader? If front loader you probably put to much in and at spin cycle the tub hit the hose to the pump and possibly got knocked off?

Washing machine is leaking at bottom of tub


This could be alot of things. Can you give a Make, and Model Number? Is this a Top Loader or a Front loader.

If its a top loader, Unplug the unit first and then remove the front panel, is the front panel removable? Some are not removable.

Once you have the front off it could be as simple as a hose has a hole in it, or worse the tub seal is leaking and you need a complete rebuild or replace the machine.

Also check the hoses coming to the machine and see if they are leaking or if the drain hose has a problem? or is the water coming from somewhere else, sink next to machine? or drain is plugged or very slow and water is coming out of the drain during spin. Please advise if you need further help
