Fisher and Paykel Washer leaking water

My 4 month old fisher Paykel washer seems to leak in the spin cycle..this just started about a month ago. The repair man was out and said the cause was : not using HE laundry soap. After using the HE soap, leak is still there... Call into repairman to return.. any ideas of what it might be ?? My Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 600 is leaking water underneath and it is steadily getting worse.

What could be the cause?
What could be the cost to repair?

    Thank you for your response.



    Regrettably, there was a "glitch" at my end. Apologies.

    The first para is a previous post. My problem is not the same.



    I have a F&P Smart Drive 600 washing machine - several years old - that has started leaking water underneath the washer during operation. Hoses and tap connections OK. Water comes from underneath.



    Any thoughts? Could it be major repair?

    Hi



    Thank you very much for the information. I really appreciate your time

    It may help when I call F&P service.



    I am located in Australia.

Hi there,

the leak underneath could be from the pump or the drain hose. some washers have a tub to pump boot that sometimes springs a leak.

for a 4-month-old washer, i would certainly hope you pay nothing. F&P appliances come with at least a 2 year warranty. check your user & care guide for warranty information.

    hi there,



    no worries at all. i would suspect the pump to tub boot then. it's not a big repair but it's a bit involved. where are you located?

How do I see what is causing my Fisher & Paykel EcoSmart washer to leak water?


If it is leaking when draining this would point to the main seal of the WATER PUMP. (Quite common for older machines.)
The pump can be easily removed by leaning the machine backwards, remove wires and see picture. NOTE: about half a litre of water will gush out so it is best to take machine outdoors. Go to a recycling centre or online auction for a replacement. They can be fiddly to replace.

Washer leaking water while spinning


Check the drain hose where it leaves the machine, if the square section of it is not in the plastic housing it will cut on the cabinet, if this has happened replace the hose they are difficult to repair, Other possibilities, pump is leaking, and check that the inlet hoses are not leaking and have washers in every connection.
