Re: Leaking when wash starts
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that
prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water
supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black
rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of
translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or
cracks, you may need to replace it.
The tube -There's a
rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the
air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a

near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the

The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking.
You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking.
Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.
Fist place to check is the outlet hose at the back of the machine it will leak as soon as water enters the tub, see if is leaking there, if it is you just have to tighten the clamp . if not there are a few hoses inside of the machine that may need clamps tightend also. The motor is seperated from the water so that wont be leaking. It could also be the electric water inlet valve that is leaking. let me know what you find out !
you can tip this unit back, the bottom is open and then oyull be able to see where the leak is coming from, any part wharehouse(online stores as well) will stock the pump if needed.. most common cause of leaking pump is fron center shaft youll see the water line
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.
