Kenmore Elite Clothes Washer. During clean cycle, flooding on floor occurs. Does not occur during normal wash cycles. I have checked hose and inlet seals, along with drain pipe...no blockages. Cannot discern where water is coming from. I am unable to find a filter to change/clean, although there could be one somewhere? What could be causing this?
ANSWER Jeff, On the clean cycle, the washer actually overfills. You have to make sure there are no articles in the tub, and use only chlorine bleach or "Affresh. " "Clean Washer Use the Clean Washer cycle once a month to keep the inside of your washer fresh and clean. This cycle uses a higher water level in combination with liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washing machine. IMPORTANT: Do not add detergent to this cleaning cycle. Use only liquid chlorine bleach. Do not place garments or other items in the washer during the Clean Washer cycle. Use this cycle with an empty wash tub." Try this : Take a dry rag or some rolled up paper towels and tie it around the top portion of the drain pipe )an inch or so below the opening/hose) and run the clean cycle as described. If water is on the floor, touch the rag/towels, if wet your drain is slow and backs up and you'll need to clean the drain. if not then the leak is from the internal washer components and will need to be diagnosed and repaired.
