    Default Kenmore floods apartment

    M- 110.27152600

    Guy said this washer flooded his apartment in last spin cycle. Any common area I should check first? I'm thinking one of the pumps or hoses.

    Hey Rick,

    I guess my first question to them would be how did you get the water to stop flooding?
    Shut off the washer, turned off the taps, unplugged the washer, etc etc.

    I'm thinking one of the pumps or hoses.
    Might as well tip it up and check those for sure.
    Bleach or soap dispenser clogged?
    Fill valve not sticking on.
    Drain hose has a hole/crack.

    Keep us posted.

    Will do Jeff when I get a chance. Just thought this model might have a known issue doing this. All I was told was it did it on the final spin cycle.
    Nice looking unit, and I look forward to finding the problem.

    Nice looking unit
    Too much electronics for me.

    Just thought this model might have a known issue doing this
    More noisy bearings, fault codes from the electronics are common on these.

    Sorry about the late response just came across this again
    I WILL post the model number today
    Only update I have as of now is I could not get it to spin at all. Thought I would lean it back do some checking of the drive system. It has a cracked rotor.
    Model - 110.27152600
    Just stepped outside to get the model number.
    Ditto on the electronics. This old boy needs to study up on them.

    It has a cracked rotor
    That is unusual.
    Or maybe not with it being plastic...

    Yeah had several cracks in it. Not sure how it flooded the apartment unless it did spin then and maybe his drain was clogged. Smh.
    Sold him one and have not heard anything yet. So, I don't know. He is supposed to come see me tomorrow when he gets back in town.

    " doubt the cracked rotor..."
    I with you on that.
    Maybe a bad bearing AND a cracked rotor AND crack somewhere high on the tub that causes a leak when it did spin.
    Oh well, may save the control panel and toss it.
