It depends on WHERE the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the FRONT area of the washer, the drain pump or drain hoses are suspect. If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, the water inlet hoses, water inlet valve, or dispenser hoses may be suspect. If the leak is coming from under the CENTER portion of the wash tub, the tub seal or wash tub may be suspect.

The first step is to remove the exterior washer case to gain access to view. The following link explains how to replace a water pump (if required) on your washer, but also includes all the steps necessary to access the washer interior:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

Allow the washer to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn it off before unplugging and removing the washer casing. The washer will not run once you disconnect the lid switch connector, so you will need some water in the tub to see where the leak may be coming from.

NOTE: If the problem IS a leaking pump, these pumps are not serviceable and will need to replaced.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore 70 series washer leaking


Check the hoses underneath the tube. There is two hoses one from the tub to the pump then the pump to the drain. Probably loose hose clamp. Or could be the pump leaking. If it is the pump itself you need to replace it. Or also coould be the botttom seal in the tub where it connects to the transmisssion.
When does it leak? It also could be the inlet hose if it just leaks when the water is going in.

My Kenmore 70 Series is leaking out of the front


Good day,
It sounds very much like the pump, which is located front center behind the cabinet.
I'm going to add a link. It isn't about the pump, but it shows you how to access that area.
Be aware that the screws that hold the top console may be different than shown.
They may be exposed on the front ends, covered by plastic covers which have to be unclipped, or as shown.

Kenmore series 70 squealing and leaking water


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It sounds as if your pump is bad.

See the following illustrated description of how to access and check / replace the pump.

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine


Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.
