Many different components inside the washer can leak. Some components outside the cabinet can also cause this problem. First, check the fill lines and connections on the outside of the washer if you have not already done this. Make sure that the drain hose is properly inserted in the stand pipe (or sink) and is not leaking.

If you find no problems with the fill lines and drain, I recommend that you

unplug the washer

and remove the cabinet as shown in the image below to try and find the source of the leak. If necessary, you can "jump" the lid switch as shown and briefly run the washer with the cabinet off to check for the source of the leak. Use extreme care if you perform this test. Do not make contact with live wires inside the washer when running it with the cabinet removed. If you are able to find the source of the leak, you can replace parts as necessary to fix the leak. You can order parts from the

Sears PartsDirect

website.

NOTE: You should not conduct this test unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely complete it. Make sure that you

unplug the washer

when accessing internal components. Shut off the water supply to the washer when necessary. Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
