My Kenmore washing machine (Elite 70 Series) has started leaking water on the floor. How do I get inside the bottom to check where the water leak is coming from? The cabinet is a solid piece of metal around front and both sides.

Kenmoor elite he 5t steam washer 47787 leaking from bottom. cant tell where leak is origanating from


Check your incoming fittings at the back of the machine-then if they aren't leaking your going to need to do a tear down and check inside machine-if you can't see anything going on you may need to hook water back up and run to see where the leak is-cheers Denny

We purchases a uses kenmore elite washing machine. When we hooked it up, and put the first load in and turned it on, water sprayed inside and leaked. We imediately unplugged the machine. Now we can


use a t-20 torx or a 7 mm socket to remove the toe kick under the door. then on the right side under the door, reach up inside the front panel find the door lock. at the bottom of the door lock you will feel a flat circular tab. pull the tab about a half inch and PULL ON THE DOOR AT THE SAME TIME.. then start washer and see if you can determine where water is leaking. if you can replace a simple part and repair it, use your model# and do a google search for parts.

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.

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.
