First check is the standpipe drain. The hose that comes from washer should not be inserted more than 4". More than that can cause a syphoning situation that can cause leaks from beneath. If that seems okay you will have to see where water is coming from by observing the machine in action with back or bottom service panel removed (if it has one.)

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Sport Front loading washer and dryer with error code

An easy Fix. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. Always disconnect power to washer and dryer, and turn off water to washer. Your filter most likely is clogged with change, screws, lint, and other household stuff that we leave in our pockets! Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. Take your shop vac and **** out remaining stuff in hose. Also, **** up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour and saves you a repair bill. If you are not comfortable with this procedure then call a maintenance person that is qualified. 775f844.jpg

SOURCE: Getting HF error, on Whirlpool Front load washer

Dear jodyheidi,
Welcome to fixya.com
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


Try this first and if it fails to remedy the problem then call service as you wanted!

Huuum At your service!

With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
let me know how it works out.

How old is the appliance?

Let me know how you progress!
Bless You, Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating when you are finished!
Thank You

SOURCE: Whirlpool WTW5300 SQ Water leaking...Help!!

The water pump is the front and has probably failed.
REMOVE POWER
To access the pump, lift the console by one of three ways.
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. Insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white or gray in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

The pump is mounted to the motor with two spring clips. Look at the face of the pump for any signs of melting or blistering. (grey bubbling)

SOURCE: My whirlpool front loader washer leaks water

Check the rubber boot just inside the door. You have to push the drum back slightly and rub your fingers around the entire boot. I had a similar problem and a key had fallen out of a pocket and cut into that boot. The leak would run out of the damaged boot then come out the bottom onto the floor. I purchased a new boot and it took me about 30 min to install it. The problem was solved. If the rubber boot is fine then the over soap thing is probably your problem.

Washing machine top load leaking water bottom model # LXR7244JQ1


The pump is near the front, bottom of the machine. You need to unplug and unhook it from the water supply. Then get a wet and dry vacuum and remove all the water from the machine by using the vacuum on the drain hose. Then you can lay the machine down to get to the bottom of it and you can replace the pump. http://www.partselect.com/ModelSections.aspx?ModelID=709279&ModelNum=LXR7244JQ1&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=3&Selected=TVCOCCCE&Position=6&mfg=Whirlpool&Type=Washer&Mark=4

When filling my Kenmore washer to begin a load of laundry the water enters the tub like it is going to wash but immediately drains onto the floor and the "water sensor" never tturns the water...


This either due to a detached "water sensor"/pressure switch hose or a broken drain/leaking drain pump. Disconnect power then remove the screws securing the console to the top of the machine. Pull the console forward then up and lay it back on the hinges. The screws are located at the rear of the console, front corners of the console, or at the front corners of the console under the end caps.

Leaks water from the bottom


Your pump is probably leaking. It's mounted right at the front of the cabinet to the motor. It's held on by 2 clips and 2 clamps, very easy job. Part number for the pump is 3363394.
