leaking washing machine? (x-post from appliances)
My ten year old washing machine has started leaking! The machine is a Kenmore and the model number is 110.92582220. I checked all the visible pipe connections behind the machine while running a wash cycle and none of those is the source of the problem. The water is definitely coming from underneath (near the front of the machine, I believe). Strangely, it doesn't leak while washing but only after a wash cycle has been completed. Water seems to be slowly leaking from somewhere and puddling on the floor. I wipe it up, and 20 minutes later there is another puddle.
I'm in Chicago where repair prices are high, so I'm wondering whether it is worth it to get someone out to attempt a repair or if I should cut my losses and buy a new machine?
