Front load washer starts to aggetate but then shuts off and front door is leaking
Hello;As far as your machine shutting off it may need to be re leveled.Some Model,s have A cut off switch built in so when agaitator is spinning it will shut down so there is no more shaking that may break other part,s that are not in line/such as barrings/ seals Etc.Try to level your washer by adjusting the legs in each corner or maybe they could be not adjustable,in this case place A level from corner to corner on the top and have someone slide A piece of shingle under the corner that needs to be brought up so the bubble on your level is in the middle.This is A 2 Person job,if you still have the same issue you may have already broke the seal around the shaft and will need A repair person lets hope not.As far as the leak that may also be caused by it not being level and the door is not making A good seal.Also the seal around the door on A front loading Machine does wear out anyway so you may need to order on in.Be very careful with that leak because it could run back into the electrical components and hurt you very bad or burn out your Machine it is nothing to fool with on A front loading unit.But try to get it level first before you start spending money you may not have to spend.All the best and good luck.

This is a Kenmore front
Hello & Welcome to FixYa
This is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if
the unit is unable to drain it behaves like this. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the
drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front
panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter.
If the problem returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then
replacing the pump is recommended repair, if the smell remains then you are correct the problem can be with the belt that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any

Can't find the capacity amount
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
That sort of information should be found in the manual and/or on the manufacturer's plate probably on the back. You could also try the manufacturer's/ Vendor's web sites ;-0)
If you need a manual you will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct for that as well ;-0)
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Machine wash ok but would
Usually, this problem is due to a clog in front of the drain pump not allowing water to drain properly.
Remove the front lower panel by removing the 3 screws along the bottom (front).
The large plastic (3") cover of the "coin-catcher" in front of the pump then needs to be removed. It is easily seen facing you when you remove the front lower panel. **WARNING** All the water from the tub will come flooding out. I like to use a shop-vac with the nozzel placed at the bottom of the cap as I unscrew it SLOWLY!!!
The coin-cathcher (lint filter) is part of the cover and you will find it loaded with years of ****.
