Water leaking out the bottom of door

When I do a load of laundry, I notice water leaking out the bottom of the door. It does not happen all the time, but it does happen a lot. Has been happening for a long time now but can not seem to find the problem myself. The washer is only 2 years old.

You are using too much detergent. Make certain you use HE (high efficiency) detergent, and one of the service technicians suggests only using about one tablespoon of detergent per load.

My washer sometimes ends up with a couple inches of water in the tub a day after last used. Also, at times water leaks on the floor. Neither of these things happen consistently.


It is likely that the fill valve located inside the rear panel is leaking, especially if you leave the supply lines turned on all the time. One annoying fix is to turn off the water supply after each laundry session but than you have to remember to turn the water on again next time

Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load Washer leak from dispenser


I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.

I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Saw nothing.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.

I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.

Took it out and works fine.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

Water leaking out the bottom of the door


You most likely need to make a small adjustment to the door. While the door is open push the bottom of the door towards the machine and pull the top of the door away from the machine, be careful not to go too far. that should take care of the leak. Before you do that make sure the water is coming out between the glass and the seal. I would remove the lower panel and make sure the seal doesn't have a small hole. You should see the seal leak from the inside. Hope this helps
