Question about Washing Machines
My washing machine leaks when it spins but not diring washing - can you help?
Leaking water usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. Note: To prevent serious flood damage, which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as show in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.
1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them).
2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing during wash loads, which can cause the machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2 cup of white vinegar in 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.
3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repairperson
