Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My wife and I have a Kenmore HE3T Washer that was working great up until a few weeks ago. I opened it up after not using it for a couple of days and water poured out. I ran the drain cycle and it worked fine. If we do several loads in a row, there is no issue. It is when we allow it to go unused for a few days that water starts to build up inside of it. There are no error codes showing up and it otherwise works fine. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Khorak, I've seen this on this model a bunch of times. The inlet valve is weeping water. You need to change it out. The top has 3 screws in the back and it will slide off toward the back. The valve sits on the left side, right up on top. Easy job, part number is 8181694. Catriver
