SOURCE: washer leaking water from underneath

Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore Washer Leaking from underneath

check the hose from the bottom of the drum to the drain. it probably slipped off. its held on by a tension clip. Someone must have pulled on the hose at the back.

SOURCE: water leaking from underneath after washer drains

I have the same washer and there is a white plastic piece underneath the washer where two hoses go into. It contains the impeller that pumps the water out. Anyway, on my machine this piece was incorrectly injection molded at the factory. The glue bubbled out causing an air bubble -- once the air bubble in the glue can stand the pressure and pops, the leak occurs!!!!! If you are a handyperson, take this piece out and use exopy to fix.

SOURCE: Washer leaking when filling up tub

Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Supra washer/dryer combo leaking significantly


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.

My Danby 1805 portable dishwasher leaks from underneath only when the water is being pumped back from the washer to the sink. My repair technician was not able to find the leak by looking from underneath...


Your pump may be cracked or a drain hose may have a hole. Also check the dishwasher housing not the cabinet that you can see I have seen small holds due to defects in the plastic that the housing is made up of. Of time with heat and moisture these hols may appear. Look for small crackes in crevices. They are hard to detect once the cabinet is removed start the dishwasher and have flashlight to see exactly where water is coming from.

If you have anymore questions please comment me back.

I have a three year old LG front load washer that has started to leak. I have replaced the hoses but the problem persists. Any suggestions before I call the repair man.


Where is it leaking from? The front or the back? If it is from the front replace the door gasket. If it is leaking from the back you will need to remove the back panel and get into the drain line and make sure that the drain line from the pump to to outside drain line is ok and not broke or loose

My GE WCSE4160B2WW top load washer is leaking.


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.

LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom


Crawls, usually all leaks are visible. Im surprised the repairman did not actually get to the source of it. Your drain pump sits on the bottom and it possibly could be the filter cap, hoses to the pump or pump itself. Another area to check is the despensor. There are a number of hoses to this which could be leaking. The bellow itself could have a cut in it somewhere along the bottom. I would call the repairman back and have him at least get to the source of the leak...Catriver..post back.
