1996 Kenmore 90 series
Wife noticed the rung under the front feet of the washer was wet. I let th
e area dry and put 20-25 gal water in the basket (no leak) then spun it dry
. No obvious leak. I tipped the unit back just past the balance point and
looked underneath for water.
There was a drop of water hanging down from the motor and a lightly oiled m
oist area around the center of the transmission. The wiring harness was we
t but the pump inlet and outlet hoses were dry. Pics at:
After I set the machine back down, around 4 oz of water puddled in front of
the machine. I just looked at the exploded parts diagram and see under th
e tub "Gasket, Centerpost Switch" which I presume I must replace. Does thi
s sound right? Do I need a special wrench to remove the basket?
