You first have to know where it is leaking from, either the back of seal or the front might have a chip in it. Need more details.

I have a WF448AAP/XAA washer and is leaking from the bottom, what it be?


Could be the bottom seal of the drum, a leaky hose or the pump that discharges the water out of the drum during rinse cycle. If it seems to leak while filling and/ or operating my bet would be the drum seal.

Leaking underneath but all hoses are connected


When a washer is leaking, there are several areas where the liquid could be coming from.
If it only leaks during a spin cycle, it's probably caused by a leaky drain hose

Leaks on a front-load washer can occur around the door seal. This can happen because of a build-up of dirt and soap on the seal itself preventing a proper seal from taking place. Wipe the door seal carefully making sure that the edge of the gasket is clean.
Parts of a plastic bleach dispenser can crack or break off, causing a leak intermittently during the flush process. This is because bleach is a very corrosive chemical. Heavy use of liquid chlorine bleach can pit and rust stainless steel parts..
You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.
Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.
Tub leaks are usually caused by a rotted tub. If this is your problem, consider buying a new washer. Sometimes a constant imbalance can be the culprit. This imbalance can rub a hole in the tub if it consistently runs off-balance. It may be possible to repair the tub with an epoxy kit. Tub replacement isn't usually very economical.
The main tub seal can also leak. This is located where the transmission and the outer tub in the centre. If this seal goes bad, it can be very difficult to replace.
Sometimes the water-inlet valve develops a buildup of mineral deposits and rust. To check this, remove the water-inlet valve and visually inspect the surface.
There is a cool product that is designed to help prevent water damage from a leaky washer. It's called a Washer Floor Tray This tray catches water leaks and prevents floor damage from overflows. This product is a must for upstairs laundries

Washer leaking water on floor


Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

Hi,
Its possible that your trans. is going to need replaced. Maybe have some bad seals on the trans. As far as the water leak goes. Could be a tub seal, maybe some worn inlet hoses, maybe a leaky inlet valve.

We hope this gives you a start on your appliance repair. Anymore questions please feel free to reply back.

Washer problem


If it makes a squeaky sound the belt could be loose or worn or wearing out. It it leaks out the bottom it could be a worn out or loose hose, or a leaky seal. The hose is easy. The seal is difficult.
