After washing cycle starts, tub starts to leak. I tilted machine backwards and can see that water is from the drum itself but cannot tell if leak starts from top or not.


It is extremely rare for the leak to come from the drum itself. It usually comes from the fill hose at the top. The hose connecting the drum to the drain pump, or the door seal. There is access from the back of the machine, or you can take the screws off at the rear on the top of the machine, and the whole top will slide off.

I just got a brand new washer delivered today and the agitator will not turn. What would cause that? Was there something not removed during delivery and installation?


There should be transport bolts at the rear of the machine, these lock the drum.
They must be removed, before use.
They should be labeled and also look out of place on rear as there are not any other bolts.

Drum is leaking in our Frigidaire GLTF1670ASo Washing Machine. Is it worth fixing a 9 year old washer with this problem, I am thinking of buying a new washer. Please advise.


With nine years your machine reached an age that I consider close to end-of-life. Frigidaire / Electrolux boasts 25 years of warranty to some parts, but don't count on it. They'll enforce handling by an authorized service partner, upfront payment of several hundred dollars and eventually refuse refund due to too hard water in your area or they'll blame you of using unsuited detergents, all after two months of processing.

Leaking drums for these machines are quite common as they put together unsuited metals, in this case an aluminum extrusion spider in the back of the inner drum and steel parts elsewhere. Corrosion and leaking is pre-programmed.

LG WM2032 HW making noise, drum moves to much, belive the bearings are shot, but it also leaked the water out of the drum when is shut down. Can just the bearing going bad cause this are is there an...


You are probably correct. If the inner drum is loose and sloppy you probably have collapsed bearings and seals.
What can also happen is that the inner drum can make contact with the outer drum and wear through it. This could be the reason for the leak.
Unplug the machine at the wall. Remove the 2 screws under the rear of the top. 'Bump' the top to the rear to unclip it, and remove.
Remove the back panel to inspect the rear of the drum. This will expose the outer drum.
If the bearings and seals have failed, you have quite a large job ahead of you.
A holed tank is another level of expense. It may be cheaper to replace the machine...Get quotes.
Good luck....Nomess

WATER LEAK ON REAR OF DRUM AND EXCESS MOVEMENT hOOVER1400 HPB145


If there is water leaking then you need to repalce both bearings and the seal that sits around the drum shaft and protects the bearing. Check the brass collar on the drum support thats sits in the bearing is not worn or grooved.If it is the shaft and/or the drum need replacing too

MY GE WASHER PUTS WHAT LOOKS LIKE GREASE SPOTS ON MY CLOTHES.


sounds like the transmission seal has started to leak. yes the transmission, all washers have these and at a certian age and usage the seals will start to leak grease into the drum. if this is an older unit this is not uncommon.
1) you can try to replace the seal
2) or you can buy another washer
service repairs for this cost almost as much as a new washer

1) laundry smells bad after wash & 2) leaking conditioner


Check that your overflow pipe is higher than the pipe it goes into. As sometimes waste water, as it drains from the sink after washing up etc, will leak into your machine, and stagnate.
Best of luck.
