Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine has a place I think for over flow but does not connect to anything. There is water that is in the bottom and 3 times now I have found my laundry room flooded and not from someething leaking from with in the walls of the home
Is this a top loading machine? Are you seeing water flowing through the overflow or are you thinking that may be your problem? Asking because I've personally never had a prob with that tube. Leaks have always been attributed to other causes. Top loading hotpoint leaks are usually caused by a leaking transmission seal, water drain pump, inlet valve or faulty pressure switch. Need more info sorry.

SOURCE: Water Leak
If possible pull out your drawer and clean it up. Reason due to clogging with detergent, etc. Refer to your manual. If you can't get the drawer out, use a tooth brush to scrub; see that brush does not fall in. The dirt can fall in. To test if clear, pour water into drawer by opening it just so the water will fall in. Try all the drawers.
And rate me pl......

I used to work for Sears as a home repair technician and washers and dryers were my specialty. Most likely the problem is with your water pump. I ran across this issue many times and what happens is people leave things in their pockets and it destroys the pump. A hair pin or coins, I have even seen socks and under ware get stuck in them causing leaks. What you want to do is tip the machine back and look at the pump. It is located right at the front of the washer with two hoses connected to it. You will want a pair of hose clamps though if you don't want water all over your floor. Disconnect the pump and look inside it for anything causing the motor inside to not work, this will cause slow draining and even leaking. If it looks clear then look for any cracks in the pump. If there is a crack then it needs to be replaced. Just call your local appliance repair place and tell them what you need. Pumps run around 30 bucks or less on average for Kenmore's. If everything looks good on the pump check the hoses that run from the pump and make sure there are no cracks or holes in the hoses. If they look good then the only thing left is the tub and the overflow tube. Chances are though that your pump is what the problem is and it is an easy fix. Good luck.

There are many possible cause of a leak. If it is set to portable make sure that the faucet is off after the cycle. You also need to make sure that you are not over loading the washing machine. Please refer to owners manual how much is the capacity your washing machine can take. Drain lines is also a possibility for this leak as well as the intake inlet. If it's leaking in the center most likely the bearing have broke off and you might need a new center seal. This job requires a professional to be replaced. My advice for Avanti users is to return it and buy something else that is trusted and branded for quality and performance.
