Slow drip near back of lid

Hi there.this may be water dripping from the injector tube where the water actually enters the bowl.It is normal to drip for a short while after the machine has just been used but if it is a constant drip then you probably have a faulty inlet valve.Try this,turn off one of the taps & see if dripping stops.if not,turn off tha other tap & see if it stops.this will tell you which of the valves are leaking.You could just turn the taps off after use,that would save having to replace it.Hope that helped you.if not then give more detail if possible please.cheers!

My washer is leaking from the underneath... I observed a cycle and noticed that the only time it does not leak is when it is draining. It has a slightly increased level of leak when it is filling but it...

The bit you're pointing to isn't meant to have any water in it (and to be honest, probably doesn't).

The leak is probably somewhere nearby, with the water then tracking round the outside of the pump before finally dripping off the lowest point.

There are two approaches to finding the leak.

1. Dry the whole pump assembly really thoroughly, then put some cold water into the machine and (with the power disconnected) carefully feel around the pump body to try to identify what bits get damp first.

2. Use the information that the leak subsides when the machine is draining to narrow your search to the pump suction. Have a careful look at the black bellows (at the right hand edge of your photo), examining all the corrugations for splits and tears. Then check the point where the bellows joins the pump body (the round, creamy coloured object with another hose coming out of it in between your arrowed box and the bellows). Use the dry/cold water/feel around trick to help with these examinations.

Water dripping from the top near the water inlet connectors. can feel the dripping water falling on my hand when placed in the opening half way down the back of the machine. how do I get into the upper...

Hi. The most likely source of a leak that you can feel is the hose washer where it connects to the washer, if it leaks constantly. I use a mirror to peer behind stuff, and it works pretty well. The easiest way to confirm this is to slide the machine out far enough to see it in action (leaking, that is). Channel locks will usually tighten up the hose, but if the hose and hose washers are old, you should replace the washer. The washer is the same as those used in garden hoses, and can be found at any hardware store. Manuals can be found at the bottom of the FixYa page.

Kenmore Washer Leak

Check the back of the tub as the water is coming in. Sometimes the water inlet gets knocked out of line if the machine shakes a lot or gets moved.

Kenmore Elite HE3t door leaking (Model 44936)??

If the unit leaks during use with a constant drip from the 6 o'clock location between the seal and the glass on the door the solution is to change tha door seal. it is quite difficult to do I would recommend you call a local service company.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
