Kenmore 110.48722791 top load washing machine leaking

Recommended Posts

pzion

We've got a Kenmore 110.48722791 top load washer. It's leaking out of the motor shaft hole and leaks pretty much as soon as any water goes in. It also no longer extracts water from the clothes after spinning and leaves them fairly soaked. Finally, the lint catcher no longer functions to catch lint.

Help appreciated.

Sounds like your center seal is bad. Parts number WP3968381. Also sounds like your pump is plugged.

Before you purchase any parts, make sure you can get it apart.

Most likely you are going to find that you can't get the tub to come loose from the drive shaft.

I think I need a repair manual for this machine. The youtube videos I've seen aren't for this model. I know in the past there was a way to request a repair manual but I haven't seen a way to do it currently.

 

Thanks.

Not to discourage you but these machines aren't all that great. Might be worth investing in another washer.

That washer isn't leaking, it's crying because it sucks.

Less polite, but not as bad as the things I could say about them
