Hi, First post and really need some help. I have a Kenmore Series 80 Model # 110.26852503 that I bought new and is now a few years old. The washer just all at once and without warning started leaking when in fill cycle. The water is coming from high up in the washer from the back side. It only leaks when it is filling. Once it has filled there is no more leaking during wash or rince cycles. When it drains there is no leaking. Like I say only when filling does it leak and it leaks pretty badly to where I can no longer use it. I cannot afford a dnew one and must try and fix it myself. I was going to remove the lid to look see but cannot figure out how it removes. When I tried to remove the back panel the whole washer seemed as if it would fall apart so I stoped and started to search for help. I need to know how to dissasemble this washer so I can fix what its problem is. I am sure it is a simple fix if I can just get into it to see what is wrong with it. Any help is certainly appreciated.

 

Thanks All,

Jeff:)

Thanks appl.tech.29501 for replying. I already placed the back on the washer as I only had it partially dismantled. I will appreciate you posting the instruction for sure. I just can not figure how this thing comes apart. I will make a donation as well. Thanks,

Jeff

the whole cabinet comes off in one piece, there will be 2 screws, either at the bottom front corners of the control panel, or bottom rear corners of the control panel, remove these

next the control panel slides forward slightly and then tilts up(its hinged at the back)  under the control panel are 2 large brass clips, you place a screwdriver in the hole at the front of the clip, catch the clip and push towards the back to release tension on the clip and it comes out

the cabinet then tilts forward and lifts off the machine

from your complaint i suspect the hose from the fill valve to the funnel on the back panel may have a hole, or there is a spring that goes from the bottom back of the tub to the frame at the back, if this spring breaks or wears through its hole on the frame the tub will lean forwards and cause water to leak as it fills

 Hi, I took the cabnit off enough to watch as it fills and can see no leaking now or any reason for it to be leaking. I have since put it back together and am in process of a wash cycle. During this enitial fill thee is no leaking. I hope that maybe the fill line was losse or something and maybe me taking it apart and putting it back just happened to help whatever was having the issue. All I know is it is not leaking at this time and can only keep my eye on it. Thanks to all who posted answers.

Jeff
