Hello cousinohlcj,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, why is my washer leaking a dark fluid?
How old is your washer?
This usually means your Hydraulic fluid is leaking from the washers transmission
When fluid is leaking out of a faulty transmission a it is only a matter of time till it stops working!
Most of the time if the washer is not under warranty it is not worth replacing the transmission which runs about 350 - 400 dollars. That is why I ask the year of the washer!

Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?


When to pull the plug on your old washer


Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:


When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to advise you!

Leak under car on driver side maybe waterpump


If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

Fluid leaking possibly from transmission


Several places the transmission can leak, pan gasket is most common place with cooler line fittings being next most common.Clean all the fluid off with a can of brake clean you can buy at a parts store.Make sure engine is off first and that the transmission has been topped off so as better to produce a leak.After it is clean crank and let idle on level ground for 30 minutes then shut it off and get a flash light and see if you have a leak and follow it to the source(fluid runs downhill like water)If you have no leak let it set overnight and check in the morning.Good luck!

Leaking fluid under transmission


Could be a seal, could be a gasket. You will need to get the car on a lift and visually inspect. If it is covered with fluid, you may have to dry off to locate the source. Once you find where it is leaking, you can then address the issue. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Windshild washer fluid not squirting in front.


They use same fuse, See if you hear it running when you depress the washer button. If not, check for power at the Dark Blue Wire at the washer pump. If it has power, and the Brown wire is grounded. then the washer pump should work, if it doesnt , replace the pump. The washer pump Dark Blue wire shoul dbe hot and the switch grounds the Brown wire.

Car is leaking fluid under driver's side - checked the oil levels and it seems fine... (i drive a 97 toyota camry) in addition, i blotted tissue on the leak - it seems like it was almost a dark red,...


A dark red or burgundy color fluid most likely means you have a transmission fluid leak.

Warm you car up for 5-10 minutes and check your transmission fluid level while it's running and you will likely find it to be low.
