Kenmore 70 series washer leak

4 posts in this topic

My boyfriend washed a load of laundry the other day and informed me today that the run in front of the washer was a little wet. When I went to look at it, the carpet was soaked, there was not water in the tub so that makes me believe it was a faulty part instead of a clog in the pipes or pump. Anyways I removed the casing for the machine and examined the pump and pipes for any cracks. Unfortunately I couldn't find any, then I removed the pump to see if it was a clog... and nothing there once again. I'm sure what else to look for. Any suggestions?

  With cabinet removed, set washer to fill and check for leaks around the water inlet valve assembly and hose from that assembly up to the tub inlet. If nothing found, let it fill a few inches and then switch to drain to check for leaks around pump and drain hoses. You will have to bypass the lid switch either by removing the switch and plugging into harness connector and operate manually or jump out the switch as per this video. It's ok to run all functions with cabinet removed.
