I need to look inside my Kenmore Series 80 washing machine to see where it is leaking. Someone told me not to take the back off, but rather, to remove the front. Is this correct? Can remove the housing and still run the machine to look for leaks?

Thanks

Impossible to say without knowing how the Kenmore Series 80 washer you have was designed. There are at least 2 different ways which access is gained depending...

The only way for anyone to tell which design of washer you have is with its model number. The only reliable place to find that model number is on the appliance's model and serial number tag. You can find tips for locating the model and serial number tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below.

This is the model number. Can you tell how to get inside?

Thanks.

That is a newer Whirlpool built 'direct drive' model whose insides are accessed by removing the whole cabinet and washer top (less console panel) as one piece. You can read about how that is done at the following link:

Common places for leaks to occur are from the pump, loose or worn hoses or spillage. Often a leak will leave a trail of soap scum from its highest point.
