Water under front loading machine

When I wash a load of clothes, I have water coming out from under my washer. It seems to be more and more with each load. I can't tell where it's coming from and don't even know where to start looking. Any ideas?

    I think I might have fixed it! I pulled out the "drawer" where you put the detergent/fabric softener and cleaned it. I do this about every other month. This time, however, I started wiping out where the drawer pushes into and boy did I ever find a huge mess! There was a HUGE glob of muck. I'm guessing it's just deposits of detergent and fabric softener that have built up over the year and a half that I've had this washer.



    After that was all cleaned out really good, I placed folded up paper towels all the way around the washer in hopes of seeing exactly where water might be coming from. I checked it each time it changed cycles and the towels are completely dry. It's going through it's final spin right now with about 3 minutes left and there is no water on the floor!!!



    I wish they'd tell you things like this when you buy the washer...or at least put it in the manual! Very frustrating!

You really have to open up anything that you can see the inside to watch where the water could be dripping. check if you can open the back panel or the top cover, just to peek inside.

could be on a loose hose or a broken hose or a water pump seal leaking.

tnx 4 using fixya,

No seems to be getting in, wash comes out damp n dirty


Is this a new washer or has there been a change in it's functionality?
Front loading washers do use very little water. One must be careful not overload them and also to be sure to use the detergent that is made for them. Can you see the clothes and water sloshing around? Try a small load with HE detergent and make sure to use the very small amount recommended and let me know if you still have a problem.

I just put in my first load of clothing in my new machine. It does not seem like there is enough water flowing into the machine. I cannot see a water line while the clothes are being washed. It seems to me...


If this is a HE unit it's probably fine. Front load units determine how much water to add based on how big of a load you put in. As long as water is flowing (waterfalling) over the clothes as the machine tumbles then it is fine. Try a larger load and see if the water level increases.

We just bought a front loading machine and it seems to have hardly any water while washing. How much water should there be? Right now it looks like only the clothes are wet but no other water sitting in...


Front load washing machins are very water conservative. In fact a lot of moldern F/L washers use so little water that it doesn't even come up to the bottom of the door.
If the machine completes it's cycle, it obviously 'thinks' it's getting enough water to continue..
IMPORTANT...Do not overuse detergent!! This can seriously shorten the life of a F/L...! You're treating the amount of water...NOT the amount of clothes...Happy Washing
Good luck....Nomess

Intermittent water on floor


Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Washer water level low, clothes come out dry !!


This is the water saver feature and the only solution may be to put it on the maximum wash cycle to get clothes really clean.
These washers normally get the clothes almost dry.
