Default Kenmore washer leaking at rinse cycle
Model Number: 110.24082200   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


During the rinse cycle about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water leaks out the bottom (back, left) of machine. No problems during the wash cycle. I haven't really ripped it apart yet, but thought someone may have an idea of why it would leak just during "rinsing" cycle. And as I said, it doesnt just flood...just about 1/2 cup.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kevin

I am guessing it is leaking during the wash cycle, but because it is a small leak you do not notice it until it has built up a little.

Either way the method to diagnose the leak is to open up the machine and watch it while it is leaking. If you do not already have it, here is a Calypso service manual which will show you how.

The instructions for raising the washer top don't apply to my model. I dont have an emblem on the front or a torx bolt. So I don't know how to get the top up in order to get the front panel off.

Is there another manual for my model?

Thanks,
KK

Default long clear plastic tubing

Well I found where the leak is coming from. There is a long plastic very thin "drain" tube that just hangs down from an outlet in the outer drum. When the rinsing cycle starts, water just comes out of there and just goes to the bottom panel and then out the bottom. Can't find this plastic tubing on diagrams, but that's where it's coming from.

Anymore help would be appreciated. Not sure why water comes out of there, but it sure seems like thats what it was made for, but the other end just hangs free.

Thanks,
Kevin

On some of these models you have two water pressure switches. They both operate by a hose that goes from the switch into the tub. When water enters the tub it increases air pressure in the hose, which in turn activates the switch to shut off the water at the correct level.

The operating pressure switch is the main one, but your model may have an overflow switch, which is set to shut off the water if it rises above the level that it should from the operating switch and the operating switch fails. As long as your operating switch is ok, the overflow switch does not come into play, so if the hose to it were disconnected it would not affect your operation.

The hose you see may be from the overload water pressure switch if you have one. Check and see if you have a switch labeled FLD without a hose coming to it. If so, connect up your drooping hose and you should be all set.

This is not a rigid type rubber hose. It's more of a very thin plastic sleeve. I have attached pictures of both ends. One end is just hanging, the other end is up and attached to what looks like an elbow connector on the outer drum.

I did mis-understand your descripton, and thanks for the pictures, but now both of us are confused. I am not sure what that is or what it does, maybe another tech can help us out here.
