Whirpool Front Loading HE (GH9400PW4) washer is leaking! Hellllp!
Well, it leaks all of the water out of the bottom during the draining period after the wash. It seems to be coming from the bottom. I was told to check the soap drawer for clogs. It isn't. Any other sugesstions?

Hi the first thing you want to check is your level that your washing on low medium or high load. make sure your setting it to the right water level setting.as for the water comming out of the bottom you might want to make sure you don't have a hose loose or that it is leaking.the tub on the washer could also have a leak in it so check those things.

It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.
Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.
make sure to look really close all it takes is alittle whole in that seal anywhere to cause a leak try to look close while it is running but first dry everything you can and then run it. also make sure your door glass is clean if it is leaking down the front just alittle dirt or hair can cause a leak aswell
Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced. They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use! Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint! these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time! you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking! Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!! This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!! Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!
