Customer Question
Our front load kenmore...

Our front load kenmore is leaking, overnight it leaked all over our new floor, what are the first things to check?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

At least 5 maybe 8 mod#79640311900

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if possible

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I was told it could be our pump so i bought a new one but it is slightly longer and the electrical tabs when it is mounted will touch the side of the washer
