It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker
thanks.

My Samsung WA5471ABW top- load washer is leaking from underneath. Is there Nything that I can do to self-repair?


You bet there is. But first let's double check some common causes of leaks that may not be located under the machine. Step one is to check the drain hose behind the machine. If a machine gets pushed back too far it can kink or bind that hose and that can cause water to leak from underneath. If that looks okay check that the end of that hose is not inserted into the drain more than about 4 - 5." If it is poked down into the standpipe more than that it can cause a syphoning situation that can also cause leaking underneath. While you are back there check the hoses that lead up to the machine. Make sure the connections are dry. I can't tell you how many under machine leaks i have fixed that originated right there. Just run a finger under each hose connection. If finger gets wet the connection may need tightened ever so slightly with pliers. If all those check out fine let me know. We'll go deeper.

Every time we wash there is water leaking, not sure were the water is coming from. i have checked the hose.


Hi.

Check that the leak is not coming from inlet valve itself. If the leak is from underneath the washer check drain pump hoses. You may need to disassemble the washer pulling up the top panel and accessing the drain pump at the bottom to find the leak.

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer was leaking underneath while running, I removed the back panel and dropped the drain hose to the floor and extended it out the door to the yard and while filling the tub...


The drain hose must be at least level with the top of the actual tub in the washer. The water pump is only bad if it is leaking. If it is leaking from the front you either have a cracked outer tub, but it sounds like your water pump, easy to change out just get the model # and order it through an appliance parts distributor. The cost is about 40 to 50 bucks. good luck!

GE Drain Hose


Hi, Does this washer have to pump the water up into a drain? If it is possible, it would be better for the machine if you can bring the drin pipe closer to the washer. I know it is not always a possibilty. The longer the drain hose, the harder it is on the washer and sometimes the cloths don't spin out as dry as they will with a short drain hose.

Drain hose on GE washer clogged with sand


Hi, It is easiest if you have a wet/dry vac and **** the water out of the tub. You can also try and **** the water out of the drain hose and hope the plug is small enough that it breaks lose. The most common place the hose gets plugged is where it narrows after the pump going out the back of the washer.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

GE Top load washer.


Hello rschneeweis
Welcome,

Sounds like a seal or drain hose is leaking or the clamp on a hose has vibrated loose.

Water leaking out the bottom of the machine when washing machine begins agitation cycle. If the machine is turned off the water stops leaking even with the tub full of water.

Let me know if you found it and how you do.
