Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water leak at door but seems to come from door itself.

Usually happens when filling, a small stream trickles from bottom center of door, down the front of machine and eventually ends up in the drawer of pedestal, which has drain holes so ultimately on the floor. the door opening boot seems OK, and when the door is opened, water sprays out of the bottom of the door. if i swing the open door back & forth quicky, water will keep coming out of the door. is there a seal for the window in the door?

I have a Frigidaire Gallaxy Series top loading washing machine, 4 years old that seems to be leaking from the bottom. Is this something I can fix myself? THANK YOU.


Before you buy a new $100 door gasket, pull out the soap dispenser tray and look inside the washer where it normally sits. If there is significant soap accumulation (even 3/8 inch), the water can become backed up and trickle down the washer front to the door bottom, making it look like a door leak. Fixed mine this way.

My washer is leaking from the front door. I see water dripping/streaming down the bottom center. Is it clogged? Bad seal? What do I look for?


I would expect that your diagnosis of clogging is correct.

There should be some drain holes in the bottom of the seal, this seems to be the most likely place.

If there is no problem there, does your door seal look worn? (Rather less likely I think).

Front loader washer leaks from bottom center of door osmetimes


Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.

Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.

Leaks water when washing from the door


It's because of a hole in the door seal body. The water runs down inside the machine and comes under the front of the washing machine

For this first unplugged and then take the top off the washer and there is usually a nut and bolt to undo which is holding a clamp band round the door seal fixing it to the tub.
many cases where the water runs down from the bottom of the door but has in fact come from the soap dispenser but the leak was coming from the door.A thin line of water trickles from the soap dispenser and runs round the door frame to appear as a door seal leak. Make sure this isn't the case.
Thanks.

My front loader is leaking water from the bottom


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.

Serious leak, please help


The problem is the air hose that goes to the pressure switch. If you remove the washer casing, and inspect the wash tub on the right hand side you will see a plastic fitting near the bottom of the tub called the "air dome". There is a small rubber hose that is supposed to be attached to this fitting. This is the pressure switch hose. Sometimes they come loose and fall off. To prevent this from happening again, reattach the hose and place a small zip tie around it at the point where it connects to the air dome. Do not overtighten as it could damage the air dome fitting. Just make it snug.

Another possiblity is a drain pump that has started leaking. It is located in front of the wash tub, however, and usually doesn't leak as seriously as the leak you have. They typically create small stress crack along the seams and develop small leaks when they go bad. The pump is not serviceable and does not come apart. Once bad, they have to be replaced.

If you click on the following link, it explains how to get the washer case off so you can inspect the washer for your leak.

I know the instructions are for replacing the water pump. I posted this just in case the pump is defective. The instructions for removing the washer case still apply.

Check for the air dome hose and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Water coming from bottom of machine


If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
