  Hello.

 

 I have a pool of water under my washer after each use.  I have a 2001 Kenmore Front Loader

Model # 970-C41062-00  (triple checked with flashlight!).  I took the top, back and front panels off and watched it through one use.  It drips from the bottom of the tub in several places but only during a fast spin cycle.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Best case: loose tub bolts. They can be tightened:

Worst case: bad tub gasket. It's a beeotch.

Thank-you.  I Tightened all the bolts and learned some new Yoga moves at the same time! Some of those bolts are little tricky to get at huh?  Our washer is dry and my wife thinks I'm handy!

 

Until next time.
