SOURCE: he3t washer leaking corner bottom

You will need to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door to gain access to the inside cabinet to see where the leak may be coming from. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the washer up with something (a 2x4 works well for this) will give you better access to the screws.

The most common source of leakage on this washer is the rubber bellow around the door. It can develop cracks or tears over time and require replacement. A tell-tale sign is the front counterweight (looks like a concrete block on the front of the wash tub) looking wet. The counterweight will remain dry if the tub is sealed properly. From the inside of the washer, pull the rubber folds back on the door bellow and inspect the perimeter for any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

If the bellow is intact, check the rear bellow seal where it connects to the front of the wash tub. If the clamp comes loose the bellow can shift and begin to leak. Tighten if necessary.

Check the drain pump and hoses to ensure they are not leaking. The drain pump is directly in the front under the wash tub.

Check the area directly below the wash tub. If the leak is coming from the wash tub iteself, you may have a bad tub seal. A replacement gasket doesn't cost much at all, but the labor involved is extensive.

Another simple problem is the dispenser tube(s) that come through the door bellow. Sometimes, these small tubes will work their way behind the rubber in the door and leak when the washer attempts to fill or rinse. This is a simple matter of adjusting the tubes to ensure they are seated through the door gasket properly.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: You can refer to searspartsdirect.com for some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer for reference in locating components.

I have a frigidaire affinity front load washer and it's leaking out the back at the top right corner. Do you know what could be causing this?


Hi ajdean01 - I see that your tub appears to be leaking. Here are a few troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:



· First, be sure that your tub is not overloaded. Sometimes when overfilled, water can and will slosh outside of the unit.

· If the tub is not overfilled, check your hoses and other connections. Like most laundry units, there is always some vibration associated with the functionality of the machine. As the appliance is used over time, hoses and other connections can loosen and begin to leak. Be sure to secure any loose connections.

· If the above items did not assist you in resolving the issue, it could be a number of other underlying causes - primarily an electronic pressure sensor, switch, thermistor or the unit's main control board. These parts are commonly replaced by experienced service technicians.

Fault code E90


E90 appears to be caused by faulty connectors to the main circuit board which appears in the bottom right corner, if you're looking at the washer from the front with the lid off (looking down into washer). This is fixed by reseating, cleaning the connectors.Also drying it out with a hair dryer has been known to help.

Machine is leaking from front right corner.


If the machine is leaking water not oil than the problem is with the main bushing on the center of the washers drum, It is either broken or worn. Remember when ever water leaks from something it may travel in many different directions before it falls to the floor. So be aware of this principle before you start fixing you will know where to look.

Water leaking from front right corner - not hoses


The leak is coming from the area of the drain pump, but you will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to sufficiently inspect where the leak may be coming from. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The following link explains what to look for:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

Make sure you check all hose connections on the drain pump and make sure the drain pump reservior cap (if equipped) is on tight. If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water leaking from the bottom of the washer at the rear right corner!


firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.

E90 alarm code keeps coming up on zanussi washer


E90 appears to be caused by faulty connectors to the main circuit board which appears in the bottom right corner, if you're looking at the washer from the front with the lid off (looking down into washer). This is fixed by reseating, cleaning the connectors.


remove 2 screws at the back which secure the top,
push the top backwards,
unplug the connectors to the front panel,
vibrations due to unbalanced load may have loosened them,
push them firmly back in socket,
pushed the top (back to front, make sure a plastic tab seats properly to secure front part of top panel) in place and fastened the screws,
power on,
run the machine empty for minimum cycle - rinse only.

Good luck!!!!
