Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
My washing machine is leaking clear water during both fill cycles. We can see that the problem is a hose but in order to replace the hose we need to get the dryer off the top fo the washer. We can get one side disconnected but see no way to disconnect the other side. Any suggestions?? Thank you!
Sesler, Does your model number beging with 110? If it does you should not have to remove the dryer, taking a puddy knife and pushing on the clips on the left and right side of the washer top should release the front panel. Here you should be able to access any hoses and the top should lift. If your washer does not begin with 110 disregard this post...Catriver..post back.

Tips for a great answer:
In all occasions it is important that your observation
is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and
solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose
pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is
important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose
would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be
back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve
can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all
cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening
of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on
the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the
cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
