It sounds like the rubber door bellow is leaking. You may have a loose clamp that secures it to the drum, which could have happened during shipping. Or, you may have a small rip or tear in the bellow, leaking drain hose(s), or drain pump. In any case, if you just purchased this washer, the washer comes with a one year limited warranty and should be repaired at no cost to you. I would not recommend trying to disassemble anything as this will void any existing warranty you may have. I would recommend you contact the dealership in which you purchased the appliance from or find a reputable appliance repair company. Sears repairs all major brands regardless or whether or not you purchased it from. If you cannot find your purchase receipt, the validity of your warranty will be determined by the date of manufacture on your appliance (which is the SERIAL NUMBER). I hope you find this information encouraging and helpful.

Slight leak


It dpends. see if you can see any staining on front of cabinet under the door , if you can then yes it will mean new seal.
Another source of water could be water from the dispenser trickling down the front of the m/c.
Another possibility is that you have a leak from under the front of the washer. Put a piece of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should enable you to pinpoint the source of the leak.
Hope this helps
Please leave feed back

Water leaking from under the front of the washing machine


The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know

Machine leaks


Leaking water usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn't drain water from a backed-up standpipe (see HERE for information on clearing clogged drains). NOTE: To prevent serious flood damage that can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install "no-burst" stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them). 2) Determine whether machine is over-sudsing during wash loads-- this can cause the entire washing machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or use a low-sudsing variety. 3) Call a repairperson. The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced.
