  • Leaking Residential Washing Machine

    please see the attached pictures as I do my best to explain the leak and seek assistance - thanks in advance

    I have an eight year old Kenmore front-loading Tumble Action Washer Model No. 417.40042990 Serial No. XC03108025 that has been leaking for about one year and progressively has gotten worse

    I took off the bottom panel and looked inside to find what seems to be a case that surrounds the main tumbler/ drum - around the entire perimiter holding the two halves together are bolts - water was slowly dripping out of the two bottom bolts and stopped when tightened

    I ran a cycle and watched water flowing out of the left shock that was attached to the case surrounding the drum and the frame of the machine(pictures)

    my questions: is this something I can fix or explore more? and how should I begin and what to look for?

    if more information or explanation is needed, I'll do my best - thanks again for your expert advice

    looks like an engineered plastic drum.

    although this is a plumbing forum and general tool forum. it's not an appliance repair forum.

    there are plenty of forums and discussion groups that deal with this better than we can.

    do a google search for your machine and issue. i know you're not the only one with this problem.

    my b.i.l. did on a neptune machine and there were thousands of post that paid off. the machine actually had a voluntary recall and he got a nice credit.

    bring on the plumbing questions any day
