Drip tray for LG washer

My washer is on the second floor. Do I really need a drip tray? The reason is that it doesn't fit with the current drain hole. What are the chances a new washer will leak?

All washers will leak for one reason or other / eather over load or shaking or something so be safe and get a pan that will fit and save your floor and ceiling

I have a AEG OKO Favorite 675 dish washer and if you start it or open the door it sounds as if it is just draining all the time, what can be wrong?


Hello Barbara, I have one of these dishwashers and this is what happens. There is a drip tray in the bottom of the machine that catches any leaked water. There is a float switch in the drip tray that detects water in the tray. If there is water in the tray, the float switch turns on the drain pump. This will immediately pump all of the water out of the machine and keep the pump running until you remove the water from the drip tray. The pump only pumps out the machine but does not pump from the drip tray. Also the pump will keep running even if the door is open or if the machine cycle is stopped. The only way to stop the pump is to turn off the electricity supply. But also turn off the water supply at the same time, because if the valve that feeds water into the machine is faulty, it will fill the machine till it overflows and if the power is off the float valve cannot turn on the drain pump. On this machine, the solenoid valve that let\'s water into the washer is at the end of the inlet pipe when is connects to the water supply. It is powered by line voltage (230 volts in our case). If this is faulty, it can be replaced with a commercial solenoid valve. The is a two core cable running inside the outer plastic pipe on the inlet pipe. This carries the power to the solenoid valve.
To empty the water from the drip tray, remove the panel from the front of the washer. It is below the front door and has two screws on each end. When you remove this you will see a hole on the left that is big enough to put your finger through and feel if there is water in the tray. If there is, push through a small plastic pipe and suck out the water. It does not take much water to switch on the float valve, maybe the door was not closed properly and some water leaked into the bottom of the unit.
I gained the above knowledge by bitter experience.

The float switch in the drip tray in the base of the unit has switched
and a leak has been registered by the electronic unit.Basically,it is
leaked into the base and tripped the antiflood device.You need to
drain the water out of the base of the machine and try it again.

I have a Model GSL9365EQ2. It has a slow drip


Take the drain hose out of the regular drain and lower it to gravity drain into a bucket, pan, or floor drain if available. Turning the water off should not have prevented the machine from starting. The drip is likely coming from a leaking solenoid water valve at the rear of the machine where the hoses connect. Replace the valve assembly after removing the cabinet top and maybe the cabinet back panel. Make sure to remove the power if you are going to do the work. Hope this helps!

Washer leaks out of the bottom. checked drain hose it is not plugged, checked hot and cold water hoses they're ok.


REMOVE THE TOP OF WASHER AND CHECK THE WATER INLET VALVE. I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING AND FINALLY DISMANTLED THE WASHER UNTIL I FOUND THE HOT WATER INLET VALVE WAS LEAKING FROM THE TOP AND DRIPPING DOWN THE TUB AND ENDING UP ON MY FLOOR. IT WILL DRIP EVEN WHEN THE WASHER IS NOT ON DUE TO THE PRESSURE BUILT UP ON THE VALVE.

Water on floor under washer


re; water under washer.
The ammount of water is from 1/4 to 1 cup after an individual load. It only became noticable reciently, after the last 3 or 4 heavy loads, using the manual setting on next to the top level. There is an automatic function, but due to the dirt and grit in the jeans I use manual.
