Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Kenmore front loader washing machine (model 417.43042200 - bought 2003) is leaking water during the cycle in the front bottom of my machine and banging/thumping as it cycles through, especially towards the end. It doesn't appear to be a balance issue. Is this worth repairing or should I just buy another?

You never want to over load your machine, when you do some of the heavier clothes seem to go to one side of the machine. When the spin cycle starts and it's making that loud sound, open it up, wait for the spin to come to a complete stop, then make sure clothes are evenly around. Then put the lid back down it should be fine then. If it's not, then repeat above steps. I hope this helps. Thank You for using FixYa.

Kenmore front Loader washer leaking from bottom


I want you to run an empty load, pour 3-4 cups of white vinager into the soap dispencer, this will flush out detergent buildup, it sounds like the unit has a buildup of soap and is oversudsing, the vinager wash will stop it from happening, if this stops the problem cut the amount of soap you are using in 1/2. If it does not let me know, good luck

that means that the water is leaking from the hows at the back of the detergent drawer.

This is not a difficult fix, however the washing machine must be taken apart to access the detergent hose and find the leak.

Always better to call a technician.
