If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap 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 leak.


  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

    Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine when it's filling up


    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.

    Leaking water when washer begins to load 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 !
