Re: Kenmore - 43142 front load - leaking
Which hose are we talking about? If you're talking about the small rubber hose at the top center of the door seal, HOW is it leaking? Is there a hole in the hose? Is the door seal itself damaged? Let me know a little more so I can give you the proper advice.

If the hose is ok and you need to check if the leaking coming from the seal of the rotating shaft you can check when you remove the cover behind the machine if it is ok check the rubber seal of the front door
there is no need to remove the side to replace the door seal, just behind the door seal there is a spring clip undo this and fold the seal into the drum were you should see another spring clip undo that as well and the door seal comes out from the front through the hole in the door, to refit a new fold the seal till its inside out and fitted on the inner drum first fit the inner clip then pull it through the door hole and fit the outer spring clip out side the door
OK, if this leak is coming from the front lower side of the door, thisWill eb a door seal issue. make sure the seal isn'tcompromised by a small object that may have been jammed during the closing of the door. if this isn't the case, replace the faulty door seal.
Now, if this leak is coming from the the bottom back side of the unit. this will be a water valve issue. check the hoses that connect to the inlet valve. make sure the hoses are tightly screwed on there respective sections.
this will more likely be your door seal open the door pull your seal so u can see inside and feel around as u look u will more than likely find a hole the water looks like it comes from somewhere else but it will be from the hole in the door seal seen this with hundreds of washers m8
Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
