Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water leaks through bottom of Front door

I bought the frond loading Kenmore no 38712 in 1999. In the past years the front door leaks a lot when washing. I noticed that if I push on the door against the tube seal, it stops. How can I adjust the door so it pushes more against the seal (or the opposite). Thanks

    Thank you kmike69. How do I get to the hinges: are you talking about the two bolts that screwed to the door or do I have to get to the part of the hinge that is inside the machine ?

The manufactures suggest putting washers on the back side of the hinge to draw the door tighter to the seal, otherwise you may have to replace the seal.

    The part of the hinge that is inside the washer. That way when you put washers between the hinge and the washer it will pull the door toward the gasket.

Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Water leaking out the bottom of door


You are using too much detergent. Make certain you use HE (high efficiency) detergent, and one of the service technicians suggests only using about one tablespoon of detergent per load.

Water leaking


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.
