WATER STARTED COMING OUT FROM THE FRONT DOOR - Washing Machines

This is not a pump fault. More likely a pressure switch or loose air dome hose going to the pressure switch. An easy fix the seldom requires parts. Why spend money on a new appliance when you can fix the one you have for little to no money?

Peace aminajmay,
ngafm At your service!


Sounds like the pump is worn out!
If I were there hands on I could be definite.

Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses.

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


Bless You ngafm
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF

Thank You

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDMOITJBLO installed as new unit in Oct. 2002 in a new home. Current problem is water coming from front door, bottom as unit starts wash cycle after filling. Leak is...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Model # GHW9100LW on final rinse and spin water remains in washer, door locked and humming sound comes from machine....pause/cancel will not unlock door or start new cycle... what might be the problem?


Sounds like the pump is trying to drain the water but something is clogged in it or the pump itself is bad. Door wont unlock if machine thinks there is water inside. Remove front lower panel. pump is in center. Unscrew cap and remove attached filter. Be prepared for water to come gushing out once filter is removed. Clean filter and reinstall. If problem persists then the pump itself needs to be replaced.

Water drips from under door. the water is


There is a ventilator mechanism on the top right corner, behind the control panel / front cover.

******TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE BREAKER BEFORE STARTING, BE SURE POWER IS OFF ******

Open the door; remove all of the screws that hold just the front panel (not the controls panel). These screws are located on the inside of the door, around the outer edges. The front door panel will be able to be removed. Close the door with the front panel removed.

***IMPORTANT be sure nobody will come in contact with the exposed wiring (especially little kids) *********

Turn back on the breaker, turn on the washer, and run a quick rinse cycle. See where the water is coming from.

On my washer (same model) i had to replace the entire vent kit (sears parts ~$40.00) Call them with your model and serial number, or search online. Removal and replacement was very easy, and it did fix my leaking problem. Checked with the front door panel off and a quick rinse before I TURNED POWER BACK OFF and put the front cover back on.

Root cause?? From what I can tell, the solenoid stopper hardens over time, which allows for water from the spray arms to leak past.

Get it fixed now before you smoke the motor or control card. My part number was ABT35083501 be sure to double check model before purchasing.

Good luck!

hi there,

you have a door latch problem. the reason you can still push on the button is because this particular washer has a time delay function. i would recommend taking a look at the latch itself and possibly the wax motor that runs the latch.

Washer door pops open during wash cycle


Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.
