Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

KitchenAid KBFS22EWMS4 less than a year old. Have repaired water hose twice ourselves and when another leak occurred we called repairman who replaced the entire hose saying the delivery people may have run over the hose causing pin holes. Two weeks later we have new pin hole leaks in the hose. We can't figure out what is causing new holes to form. Any clue?

Check the entire length of the hose to see if it has been rubbing on something. When the machines spin parts inside if not secured move around a lot and there are many sharp pieces inside the machines.

SOURCE: leaks water underneath

If you can locate the pin hole then when the machine is dry block the pin hole by putting araldite glue paste and let it settle for sometime. It should solve your problem.

Legit repair?

The stack blower can fail with the symptom described, but twice within 5 years? Maybe. If the temperature is less than the thermostat setting, there may be a cracked heat exchanger but depends, to some extent, on how old the furnace is.

Dishwasher leaks after it fills up and starts to wash

Make sure the dishwasher is level. If the water is leaking from the door, you should replace the door gasket.
Water under the dishwasher could be from a leaking hose or loose hose connection. Check these by removing the bottom front panel.
The pump seal may need to be replaced. If you are not real handy, call a repairman for this replacement.

Leaks front and back, makes loud noice

It sounds like broken glass shards have become lodged in the pump. You are looking at the possible need to replace the pump, and locating and repairing those leaks.

The cost of parts alone could exceed 200 dollars.

With a 12 year old unit, you may want to consider just replacing it, especially if you would need to pay a repairman to make the repairs. Your cost of repairs may actually exceed the cost of replacement.

At this point, the unit is already broken, so it couldn't hurt to remove the unit, disassemble the pump and look for the damage yourself. You may get lucky and just have a few seals to replace and a hose or two.

Here is a picture of a water pump, your should be similar and located underneath the bottom of the unit.

Machine fills 3/4 full of water and then leaks out the door. Repairman says it is the water control valve (this will be the third repair in 3 years. using less that tsp of he soap and the problem still...

Yes this correct. Install a recetional vehicle water filter for both hot and cold.
Price is $20.99 each Less than the service call and valve. Try just using cold water and buy one I am sure you will agree it was a good investment and you can't go wrong for $21 and 10 minunets of unscrewing the hose and screwing the filter on the hose your self (make sure it is tight and does not leak. You clothes will wash better too.

Fisher and Paykel Washer leaking water

hi there,

the leak underneath could be from the pump or the drain hose. some washers have a tub to pump boot that sometimes springs a leak.

for a 4-month-old washer, i would certainly hope you pay nothing. F&P appliances come with at least a 2 year warranty. check your user & care guide for warranty information.

LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom

Crawls, usually all leaks are visible. Im surprised the repairman did not actually get to the source of it. Your drain pump sits on the bottom and it possibly could be the filter cap, hoses to the pump or pump itself. Another area to check is the despensor. There are a number of hoses to this which could be leaking. The bellow itself could have a cut in it somewhere along the bottom. I would call the repairman back and have him at least get to the source of the back.
