Re: Water leaking from my washer
Hi sirDishwashers are usually protected from overfilling by a float switch. This switch is located in the bottom of the unit. Here's how to check and replace it:Step 1: Open the door and remove the bottom dish rack. Check to see if the float valve is stuck. If it is, clean away food debris around the float. With a screwdriver handle, lightly tap the top of the float to free it.

It is common on Whirlpool models for the water to splash out the top when filling especially when sheets or nylon cloth is loaded in the washer. Air fills the cloth and balloons the garment up this caused water to bounce off the garment and splash out the back. This is the most common reason for those mysterious leaks. Lowering the water pressure coming into the washer can help prevent this.
1) drain hose on back of washer is coming off / splitting / getting loose
2) water pump is leaking (cracked?) or has a gasket that has deteriorated.
3) hose between tub and water pump has come off / split / became loose.
Since your washer isn't able to hold water, it makes it easy to remove the clothes, and lean the washer forward to see what is going on. Most washers' mechanicals can be acessed from either the bottom, or from the back via access panel. The water leaks are generally a pretty easy repair.
if you have any suds your either using too much soap or the wrong kind. does the washer drain all the water out each time? is this a new machine where you're washing your clothes in it for the first time? I've seen clothes with resisual soap in them causing over sudsing.
disconnect the hose on the bottom and see if the seal is good.If it is good, then remove the back panel, start the washer and watch and see what seal is broke and you can visually see the exact spot the water is leaking from.
