Water leaking from bottom of frigidare washer

I recently purchased a used frigidare washer and on the first try water is leaking from the bottom of the unit. All hoses and drains are tight and do not seem to be the source of the problem. Would anyone know what might be the issue?
Thanks

    When you state that all hoses and drains are tight, do you mean the intake hoses that fill the washer, or the water hoses under the washer?

You really don't have to take a panel off, depending on your washer model. All you would have to do, is flip the washer over on its side and check underneath.

'97 Gibson front load washer--water leaks from underneath the machine during the rinse cycle(1/2cup)on the front right portion


Gibson is usually a frigidare type which has a panel on the bottom front that can be removed. Take it off and watch it run a cycle.. boring but usually a good idea on a slow leak...

A common problem on this type was one of the shocks breaking of the bottom two, so look those over good..Replacements are better, sold as a set.....(Tub would bounce around more sometimes cracking the dispenser housing)

Check the boot for a tear, can also remove the top panel by taking three screws out and pulling back on it away from control panel......You need to look......

Leaking from the bottom of washer


A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem that you find. Also, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If that happens, the entire outer tub would need replaced, but that might not be an economical repair to make and would require professional assistance. Hopefully, the main drain line is leaking and can be repaired. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes

Drops of water inside pedestal of washer.


Sounds like you have a leak around the door bellow somewhere, or your drain pump. The bellow is the rubber gray boot the seals around the wash tub and door. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door to be sure. Remove the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the washer with a load running. If the bellow leaks, a tell tale sign will be moisture showing up on the concrete counter weight in the front of the washer. Double check your drain pump and hoses as well. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. The water tends to pool in the cabinet before it leaks out and drops into the pedestal drawer. If the bellow is leaking, make sure inspect it for rips and tears. You may just have a banding clamp that is loose. If the pump is leaking, make sure the clean out trap is on correctly and snug.

PS If you just purchased this washer and are experiencing problems already, this repair is covered under the one year limited warranty. Inspecting for a leak is not going to void the warranty. However, removing any major parts may. Just do an inspection to see if it is something obvious. If you suspect a part failure, get in touch with the retailer. If this was purchased from S**rs, they usually have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with the appliance, they should take it back.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Frigidare front load washing macine leaks water


Sounds like the dispenser is leaking somehow, there is no filter that would cause it to leak. Remove lid of washer by screws on back lip and inspect during fill to see where leak is.

Frigidare front load washer error code


Could be "detergent drawer open". Try opening and closing the door shut. There is a magnet there which shows that the door is closed or open. Use front loading washing powders preferably.
