Water leaking Hi. I bought a 1 1/2 year old Kenmore front loader from an estate sale. Seemed to work great in beginning, but now I am noticing a small puddle of water that seems to be coming from the bottom of the washer somewhere.I've only had it about 2 weeks. Please advise.

Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely you will have to get under to check it out. Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides Do a wash and repeat. But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.

Kenmore 70 Series Top Loading Washer Leaks


If this is a Kenmore TOP LOADER, you need to remove the exterior cabinet in order to access the washer interior and sufficiently inspect to determine where your leak may be coming from. This is much easier than it sounds. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader

In the majority of cases with a top loader, the water pump begins to leak. These pumps are not serviceable and require replacing if damaged. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

Follow the tips in the link provided and make sure you inspect all hoses and tub seals as well. This is a very simple repair that you can perform without the assistance of a repairman. The average cost of a pump is about $35.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located along the wash tub rim under the lid), so I can determine what washer configuration you have. I hope you find this information helpful.

14 year old Whirlpool Estate washer. leaks small


Most likely you have a leaking water pump. This is not too hard to change if you are somewhat mechanically inclined it is around a 5 on a scale of 10. Your model # should be on the back of machine towards the top. If you want to change it yourself let me know and I will give you directions. Let me know if I can do anything else to help.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

Kenmore HE3 Front Loader Washer Cold Water Intake problem


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.
