Is repair time and parts extensive for this type of repair? Kenmore Front Load Model# 110.45986401


Confirm that it is not the door seal. The door seal can easily be replaced and the parts are available.

You would expect that any water leaking around the door seal would migrate down to the lowest part of the tub leaving the appearance that the leak is where the two half's of the tub are joined by the retaining clips
.
Replacing the seal between the two tub half's is a different story as compared to the door seal. The tub seal is definitely do-able, but not for the faint of heart!!

If the leak is very very small I might wait until a major overall is require such as the tub seal/bearing. If I chose to wait I would monitor the situation.

Inspect the area at the hub of the pulley looking for streaks of rust.. If there is an indication that water is leaking past the basket tub seal than doing an over hall now may included front door seal, tub seal, bearing and basket seal replacement.

Two red fasing lights on right hand side of machine


Both lights flashing usually is caused by a water leak into the case of the machine which trips the float switch in the base. You can reset this by tipping the machine forwards at 45 degrees and allowing the water to drain out on to the floor. It will reset everything but if you still have a leak it will trip ou again due to the float switch.

I had the same problem with the 2 red lights flashing, which was fixed by emptying the float tray as above.
On further investigation I found that the door seal had rubbed on itself at the 6 o'clock position and had worn a small hole which was causing the water leak.

To replace or repair the Door Seal you will need to remove the front panel.

1. Turn power off and unplug machine after opening door.

2. Remove the front panel lower kick plate by inserting a thin ruler between the kick plate and front panel about 4 inches from each end and lever down until it releases.

3. Remove the 2 screws at the door lock switch on the front panel.

4. With the kick plate removed you will see 2 screws at each lower edge of the front panel, remove these 4 screws.

5. Remove the spring loaded band from around the edge of the door seal facing you and after that release the seal from the front panel and push in.

6. Remove the hex bolt from the 6 o'clock position just below the door seal on the front panel.

7. You should now be able to lower the front panel out of the locating pins and remove it.

8. With front panel removed you will be able to remove the tensioning band which holds the door seal in place around the drum by undoing the screw at the right hand side of the band at the 3 o'clock position. It is accessible from above with a long bladed screwdriver. Take note of how far it is tensioned on the thread of the screw and try not to undo it all the way or you may lose the nut on the band.

9. Once you have removed the band, slip the seal off the drum and slide the water outlet to the seal from the dispenser.

10. When you replace the seal do not do the tensioning band up too tightly or you will hear it squeak when you spin the drum in either direction.

11.Reassembly is the reverse of removal, taking care to put the door manual release strap through the inner slot in the front panel.

I repaired my door seal with Silicone Sealant and loose weave fabric tape after rubbing it clean with alcohol as i didn't want to pay $100 for a new seal from Miele.

Hotpoint washer/dryer wd440 door wont open stopped mid cycle


  • Disconnect the washing machine from the mains supply
  • The door seal is held in place on the door frame by a thin metal clamp band. This band is held in place at the top of the door seal with two plastic halves that clip together. To remove, insert a flat bladed screwdriver between the two halves and gently lever or prize them apart and then unpeel the door seal from the door frame
  • Remove the soap dispenser drawer
  • Remove the timer knob and control panel
  • Undo the 3 screws that were behind the control panel and the 3 screws at the base of the front panel under the door
  • Remove and carefully place the front panel to one side
  • The pressure chamber bottle is attached to the bottom of the tub at the end of the small rubber tubing coming from the door interlock. Remove it and thoroughly clean it out, paying attention to the small hole where the rubber tubing is attached
Warning: The pressure system is how the washing machine controls the water levels. Disturbing it can cause water leaks, or even overfilling and flooding if the job isn't done properly.

Water leaking from the door and front panel of my Duet washer


Check the rubber door seal, sounds like its split which is common after 2-3 years use.
You can find the general area of the leak by placing dry newspaper on a dry floor beneath the machine.

Viking freezer leaking


you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

Water leak


Remove the lower panel under the washer door and inspect the interior. The panel is removed by loosening and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the following areas:

- Check all hoses for leaks, cracks, holes and loose connections. Check the seal where the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub connects to the intake of the drain pump. Make sure the drain hose from the pump to the standpipe is connected snug to the pump and is not leaking.
- Check the drain pump to ensure it is not leaking. The clean out reservoir cap (if not fitted properly) can leak around the seal.
- Check the door bellow (gray rubber boot) to ensure it is not leaking. HINT: A tale-tell sign of bellow leakage is wetness showing up on the front washer counterweight. This is a concrete block mounted to the front of the wash tub. It is not supposed to be wet.
- Check the pressure switch air hose to ensure it is connected to the air dome on the side of the wash tub. This is a small rubber hose that runs from the pressure switch in the top left rear of the washer (viewed from the back, with the washer top panel removed) to the bottom right hand side of the wash tub. However, if this hose were to come off the air dome fitting, the wash tub would continously try to fill and water would begin to pour from the bottom of the wash tub. If this does not sound like your symptoms, disregard this step.
- Check the seam where the wash tub shells meet. There is a rubber tub gasket that seals the two tub halves together. If the seal is bad, water will begin to collect and drip along this seam.
- Check the tub for cracks. This is NOT common, but it can happen.

The following link explains the step-by-step process of checking and cleaning the drain pump:

I mention this link, because it gives you some guidance on how to access the pump and how avoid the possible mess involved with water pouring out of the pump.

If you discover the door bellow as the the cause for your leak, please refer to this link:

Leaking dishwasher


what sort of soap powder do you use
some soap powders foam a lot in machine causing dishwasher to leak through seals
also check that the machine is square that is the door is closing parallel with cabinet
do not use power balls in machine just standard dishwasher detergent and separate rinse aid
