Join Samurai Appliance Repair Man on a safari deep into the bowels of a front-loading washer in search of a leak source.  This particular washer is a Kenmore HE2 Plus but it's actually built by Whirlpool and sold under the Whirlpool label as a Duet Sport.  The techniques and insights revealed in this video are applicable to all front load washers because they all work pretty much the same way.  
 
 
Here's the replacement pump I used to fix this washer:  http://www.repaircli...005?RCAID=24038

I carry a deep dish baking tin on my truck for clogged/no drain front load washers.  I find that many of my customers were in the middle of a load when the unit would not drain so the entire basket is full of water.  I usually vacuum as much as I can from inside the drum, then I just stick the baking tin under the clean out and let her rip.  I feel like it saves some time. When I do the way the Samurai does I usually get water on the floor (probably just clumsy).  Of course you cant always stick a baking pan under the clean out b/c some drain pumps are too far inside the machine.  Thats why I always carry two towels in the home when I go on a washer or dishwasher.

 

Strange Question: What do you do with your 'Gukus" water after your wet vac fills up? Often times my vac fills up 3-4 times.  I always feel strange asking the customer where I should put it and they usually reply "in the toilet or the sink"--especially if its murky or stinky.  If I can I like to dump it in their yard somewhere....Any suggestions?

I use a wet vac and it catches 97.8675% of the water. The remaining 2.1325% is easily mopped up with a towel, which are usually in plentiful supply in the laundry room. I dump the wet vac water in a toilet if nearby.

I thought the toilet was the go to place for nappy water.  Thanks!
