I bought a used Kenmore Elite top loading washing machine. I hooked up it fine, checked for leaks, and found no leaks. I ran the machine to clean it out and it ran fine, until the rinse cycle The machine started to leak when the self-leveling feature activated. The water is coming from the bottom right of the machine (as you're looking at the machine. I can't tell where the water is coming from.
ON NEWER MODELS THE WATER SUPPLY AND DRAIN ARE THE SAME CONNECTION THAT "SNAPS or TWISTS" ON TO YOU KITCHEN OR LANDRY ROMM FAUCET.
########### IF YOUR DIDH-WASHER #########
IS A BUILT-IN WITH NO FAUCET SUPPLY THE NEXT
SUGESTIONS DO NOT APPLY
ARE THE SUPPLY AND DRAIN BOTH. THE DRAIN LINE IN THAT CASE IS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HOSE COMBO.
WATEVER DRAIN OUTLET OR INLET YOU FIND ... GETS SOME RAGS A BUCKETS READY AND GET A GARDEN HOUSE ... IF YOUR WASYER IS ON ROLLERS ... MOVE IT TO THE KITCHEN DOOR. LOOK CAREFULLY INSIDE TO SEE IF TRAYS REMOVE EASY FOR YOU.... IF SO LIFT UP THE SPRAYBARE UNIT AND SET IT SAFELY ASIDE ... DONT LET IT GET BENT.YOU SOULD SEE A DRAIN HOLE DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE INSIDE NOW ... MAY NEED A FLASH LIGHT. PLACE THE FAUCET ASSEMBLY AND ANY OTHER HOSE YOU SEE IN THE BUCKET SECURELY. WITH YOUR HOSE NOZZLE END , SLOWLY TURN OR SQEEZE THE SPRAYER TO GET A STEADY FLOW. NOTICE WHICH HOSE STARTS DRAINING WATER INTHE BUCKET. NOW YOU HAVE FOUND THE LINE AND CAN FLUSH IT OUT REAL GOOD WITH THE HOSE WATER PRESSURE JUST A FEW SHOTS.
THYAT IS THE FIRST NO-COST NO-PLAYING WITH ELECTRICITY SOLUTIONS.

Re: Water leaks during rinse cycle
MAKE SURE TO FLUSH-OUT DRAIN LINE. WATER IF IT IS DRAINING TO SLOW WILL START LEAKING AROUND THE LOWER PART OF THE WASHER WHERE THERE IS A SAFTEY OVER FLOW ... IF YOURS IS A FREE STANDING TOP LOADER THE DRAIN HOSE IS IETHER SEPERATE OR FLOWS WITH A CHECK VALVE THAT HOOHS RIGHT TO YOUR FAUCET. MAKE SURE THE CHECK VALVE AT THE FAUCET CONNECTION IS FREE AND NOT STUCK.

This is an inherent problem with this Whirlpool-made top load washer and at first it is believed to be a machine/motor control fault. But it was found later that it can be due issues associated with the pressure transducer/switch system. Air leaks and moisture in the pressure hose including lints or flashing in the air dome can lead to signal error being sent to the machine/motor control assembly and it is interpreted as a machine/motor control fault. You may also observe that the fault code F1 appears usually during water filling at the start of the wash cycle and/or at the start of the rinse cycles.
Check the pressure hose for air leaks and moisture including the air dome. Replace the machine/motor control assembly if no issue is found with the pressure hose and the air dome. Click on the link below for the troubleshooting and repair instruction details.
Try putting unit on cold water wash///just to see if cold water is coming in to machine.... You see the rinse cycle uses only cold water the hum you here is most likely cold water valve..to fix turn water of remove water inlet line (cold) clean water inlet screens( there is also screens inside the valves) hook back up turn water on check for leaks test .If this helped you please vote/// need more help please ask....
