Leaking washing machine

My LG 1285FHD front load washing machine is leaking water from underneath the dispener drawer when it is rinsing. I have taken out the drawer, cleaned it, there is nothing clogging it. This has only just started to happen. How can I fix it? There does not appear to be any seal present which has broken.

Re: leaking washing machine

You need to clean above where the drawer goes in, the water jet holes get blocked and spray sidewards. also you can reduce the water pressure at the supply tap to a fast trickle this will avoid jets of water flowing over and forward of the tray.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?

Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

Have a Miele W320, during the rinse part of wash cycle, water pours from underneath the detergent drawer. What can I do to stop this happening?

Is the drawer gunged up? Are you using too much detergent?

Remove the drawer, and clean it with hot water and a brush.

Look into the empty drawer slot for any blockages and remove.

Replace drawer, try pouring hot water into the open drawer to try to dissolve and clear any blockages.

Consider using a dosing ball and adding detergent to the drum.

LG WM2355C water leaking under machine after washing finished.

HI, you will want to Inspect the water supply connections. this is a good spot to check first. there may be a loose connection here, causing the leakage. Next, Inspect the drain hose. Check to make sure that it is tightly connected to the drain pump. replace if needed. Last. Inspect outer tub/basket for cracks or corrosion.

You will find the issue in one or all of the above stated check points.
