Question about Washing Machines
Hi we have a zanussi zwf1621 washing machine and just lately (about the last 4 weeks) it has been leaking water onto the carpet at the front of the machine. I have pulled it out from the wall and the floor underneath at the back was/is dry. I have checked the filter thingy in the lower right corner and it clean and clear of any blockage. Any ideas as to where the leak might be and how i repair it please?
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.
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
