SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom of door during wash cycle

I had a similar problem.  It turned out to be the overflow "sock".  It's a long plastic bag that hangs from the side of the tub.  You have to get the top open, and it will be on the left side.  Where it attaches to the tub, the plastic attachment has a rubber washer that gets flattened out after time allowing the attachment to get loose and leak.  Since I couldn't find the washer to replace it, I cut a piece of gasket material like you get from an auto parts place and placed it behind the foam washer.  This made the connection tight, and the leak stopped, thank God.

We have not heard back on this in about a week. I'm presuming It's been repaired?

I used to work for Sears as a home repair technician and washers and dryers were my specialty. Most likely the problem is with your water pump. I ran across this issue many times and what happens is people leave things in their pockets and it destroys the pump. A hair pin or coins, I have even seen socks and under ware get stuck in them causing leaks. What you want to do is tip the machine back and look at the pump. It is located right at the front of the washer with two hoses connected to it. You will want a pair of hose clamps though if you don't want water all over your floor. Disconnect the pump and look inside it for anything causing the motor inside to not work, this will cause slow draining and even leaking. If it looks clear then look for any cracks in the pump. If there is a crack then it needs to be replaced. Just call your local appliance repair place and tell them what you need. Pumps run around 30 bucks or less on average for Kenmore's. If everything looks good on the pump check the hoses that run from the pump and make sure there are no cracks or holes in the hoses. If they look good then the only thing left is the tub and the overflow tube. Chances are though that your pump is what the problem is and it is an easy fix. Good luck.

We had the same problem. The bleach dispenser tray is located on the drum below the bleach storage pan. The dispenser tray has very small holes that were plugged by rust from the hose clamp that attached the dilution water supply hose to the bleach storage pan. I removed the top of the washing machine to discover the problem, but it may be solved by attaching a flexible tube or small hose to the end of a vacuum cleaner hose and cleaning out the dispenser tray. There is room between the dispenser tray and the storage pan and is located in the front right corner.

Water leaking from front right corner - not hoses


The leak is coming from the area of the drain pump, but you will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to sufficiently inspect where the leak may be coming from. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The following link explains what to look for:

Make sure you check all hose connections on the drain pump and make sure the drain pump reservior cap (if equipped) is on tight. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Open up behind, after taking off the wall power plug. Check to see it the hose from underneath the tub is loose, tighten. Or replace hose if damaged.

Washer leaking water from underneath


Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
