My washer seems to be leaking from the bottom not the hoses in the back. What things should I check to determine where the leak is occurring?

** What things should I check to determine where the leak is occurring? **

Looking at any and all of the water carrying parts of the machine will be necessary to determine where a leak might be coming from. The pump (see the following links) might be a prime candidate but there are lots of other possible sources as well.

I have a Kenmore top loading 80 series washing machine model 110.23832100 that is leaking water due to the tub not sitting correctly and the fill spout does not fill directly into the tub, causing the water to spill over the back of the tub and to the floor. It has done this since we first purchased it but it was very "insignificant" in the beginning. It has gotten much worse over the years. I never could figure out why there was water on the floor, which ruined our flooring, until recently. If you keep the lid open while the machine is filling it should be discernable to you if the water is hitting the rim of the tub and splashing over, as ours is. I have been clamping the tub to the front of the frame when filling it until I can afford a new one. We installed a plastic catch pan under the machine that we purchased at Lowes for 24.00 so it doesn't ruin our floor again. It's hard to catch it on the rinse cycle as well. It appears to be a design flaw. I have not seen any recalls on this machine but feel that there should have been one issued. I don't know if this could possibly be your issue as well but thought i'd share my issue in case it helps you with yours! Good luck with yours..if you haven't already replaced it!

There may be a problem with the washer's internal suspension (ie. damper pads or suspension springs).

** It has done this since we first purchased it **

Did you have it looked at under warranty? That's what it is for.

** I have been clamping the tub to the front of the frame when filling it until I can afford a new one. **

How about look into and correct the problem with the washer you have? It would likely be more cost effective.

** I have not seen any recalls on this machine but feel that there should have been one issued. **

"Recalls" are issued for safety related issues only.
