SOURCE: Water leaking out slightly from

Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
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. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: Water leaking on the floor while filling

Open the back of the washer. Start the fill cycle and observe where the water is leaking from. You are not going to get a full view of the entire tub by only opening the lower front access.

Maytag heavy duty washing machine quiet series 100 leaks water from the top panel


Older maytags were equipped with an "air-gap" that can leak if the rubber sleeve part of it gets too stiff and cannot flex. It is along the left hand side of the machine fastened by a 5/16" screw between the machine cabinet and the upper panel... Maytag Injector Tube 12001677
If you remove the front panel and set the machine to fill, you should see water dripping off of the plastic frame the injector is sitting in.

If it is a newer maytag, check the fill spout for cracks or sediment build-up Maytag Water Supply Tube WP3360977

Leaking from underneath


make sure valve cover is very tight and o-ring is in place inside the valve.

ensure rubber seal did not fall out of fill hose end (if you removed it )

ensure hose clamps are tight.

ensure the curved hose from the fill valve to the booster is not brittle and cracked.
thats it!

My White Westinghouse 833ES never stops filling, it seems like as water goes in, it is draining right out. Any ideas of what to check would be appreciated. Thank you.


you have to have the drain higher than the water level of the wahing machine, plus ther is no stopper for the water so if you have the drain hose connected directly to another hose and there is no air gap at the top it will just siphon out

I have water on floor on the left of a top loading kenmore washer


There are hjoses on the inside of your machine that connect to the tub. The fill is turned on by a electrically controlled valve. When it opens, the tub fills and if the hose is cracked or the connection is loose, the water will spill out of the hose. You have to open the back up (I think that is how you get in there) and check the hose and the control valve. Does it only leak on the cold? Or does it leak on both?

Washer top


The following link should give you the steps necessary to remove the exterior washer casing to inspect the interior:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

The instructions are for replacing the washer pump, but the steps to gain access to the interior are the same. If the leak is coming from the FRONT of the washer, check the pump and drain hoses for loose connections. If the pump is leaking, it is not repairable (sealed unit) and must be replaced. If the leak is coming from UNDER THE WASH TUB, this is a symptm of a leaking tub seal, or cracked tub. This requires removal of the wash basket to replace either part. If the leak is coming from the SIDE of the wash tub after it starts to fill, check the air dome hose to ensure it is still attached and not leaking. This is a small air hose that connects to the side of the wash tub and runs to your pressure switch. It sometimes becomes loose or disconnected and leaks. If the leak is coming from the BACK of the washer, check the fill hoses and water inlet valve hoses. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance, please let me know.
