Tips for Correcting a Kenmore Oasis HE Washer That Leaks

Save

Kenmore's Oasis HE (high-efficiency) washer is equipped with several options, including water, temperature and stain sensors, automatic dispensers, an electronic control panel, suspended drum and filtered water. While the Oasis washer should perform well with standard care and maintenance, issues can occasionally arise, such as the washer leaking. If this occurs, some troubleshooting steps might be helpful in determining the source of the problem and finding a solution.

Things You'll Need

  • Standpipe (if necessary)
  • Water
  • Inspect the fill hoses to see whether they are connected firmly and not crushed or kinked. Repair as necessary.

  • Reduce the washer load and redistribute items inside the tub for a more even balance. If there are too many items inside the tub, water can deflect off the items and leak.

  • Avoid using the "Stain Treat" option once the wash cycle starts because this might cause a leak. Only start the "Stain Treat" option with a dry load.

  • Pull the drain hose up from the washer and connect it to a standpipe for proper flow and drainage.

  • Examine the nearest sink for possible blockages and clear the drain as necessary. If the drain is blocked, water may back up and leak.

  • Contact an authorized service technician for assistance if the above methods do not resolve the issue.
