Filter works fine, except one side where it clamps down is leaking. Other than that it works great and I don't want to replace it. Any ideas?

Is there a gasket or o-ring that is damaged or bad? IF not you can run a bead of silicon around it where the surfaces join and let it dry before you put it together. This would make a gasket.

I'm having trouble with my tetra filter

You can solve this with a simple hose clamp from any hardware store. Take the hose with you and they will get you the right size one.

Cloudy water that stinks

1st priory is to save the fish !! move them to a new container consisting of half old water and half new water (declorinated) along with a small air bubbler !! this should help your fish to recover (don't use soap to clean out container it is toxic to fish) moist table salt is best to use for a cleaning agent and rinse well b4 putting fish inside

then ck to see if your aquarium is pumping water thru the filter and falling back into tank ( replace all the water in the tank 1st with two rinses ) make needed repairs to pump and or filter assembly (New filter cartridge) new pump impellers and cartridges are available for purchase for your aquarium from vendors that sell aquariums and allways ck the outlet the pump is plugging in b4 blaming a pump fail with a known good table light set to "On" they do go off once and an a while
verify that water chemistry is ok b4 retuning fish to tank and observe fish for strange behavior for next several hours ( upside down swimming, laying sideways )

Where does the washer go in the tetra wisper x30 filter go

A size and description of the washer could help. If it is the size of the intake tube then it is for the intake tube. If it is the size of the filter then it is for the filter etc etc.

Cleaned my filter out now it will not pump,never had a problem till now

Once shut to clean the propeller needs to be cleaned as it gets clogged. You need to pull out the piece housing the propeller and rinse off or use a thin item to wash out any debris stuck.

Aquarium water is cloudy

This can happen and will generally clear with time, if you are concerned do a water change. I find that this treatment is more hassle than its worth, if you have a suitable filter seachem denitrate is a good alternative, or he aquarium pure balls.

What's a power filter?

Power filter are much easier to maintain and as effective as the others. A siphon tube pulls water from the tank into the filter box and passes the water though a mechanical filter. Then the sponge doubles as a biological filter. An internal pump then returns the filtered water into the aquarium. The advantage is that the foam sponge can be easily inspected for clogging or removed for cleaning therefore reducing bacterial loss.

MY MOtor is hot and not running

Probably some debris or a mechanical fault stopping it causing the motor to get hot, strip it and give a good clean.
