If the tap is leaking replace the washer in hose end. It's a common garden hose washer. If you mean there is water in the tub your inlet water valve needs likely needs replaced.

SOURCE: Leaking taps

Check first if leaking from hoses or under the machine.
Undo your taps, check that the hoses rubber seals haven't worn out. Replace rubber seals, most hardware plumbing sections have them. Also if the actual tap is leaking at the wall, you will have to change the tappets. You will need to close your main water at the timer, then undo the actual knobs, depending on the tap. Once opened take out tappets and replace with copper ones rather than plastic. Then put all back together and switch water on and check if leaking. In case it is the washing machine, try to replace hose or the connector on the back of machine. Make sure also all rubber seals are replaced with new ones. If under machine you will need a plumber. See how you go!

Most likely a blocked pump

The small leak may have been enough to blow the fuse under the control panel.
I had the same trouble with my F&P smartdrive 701.
Take off the control panel by undoing 2 screws and you will see the blue plastic control box in the tray on the machine (not the other blue circuit board box under the push buttons). Open the control box (1 screw and click open) to see an ordinary fuse. Hopefully this is blown and the new fuse, a clean up of leaking water, and some plumber's thread tape on the hose connector to stop future leaks, and you should be up and running.
Good luck.

My Bosch washing machine is leaking from the bottom of the right hand side of machine when not in use.


g'day, sounds like the leak is coming from the hose - this is because the leak is occurring when its off. Check seals on hose at the back of machine. You can always find old sets of hoses as well (or buy them), so you can try swapping them over. Keep in mind, with washing machine hoses (like gardening hoses), the seal is at the rubber washers not the thread on the tap... so plumbers tap will not stop a leak, it will hinder the seal.
An alternative solution is simply turn tap's off between washes...

I have a f&p Smartdrive 708 washer that is leaking water underneath the machine. It is only a small leak at the moment. Could the seals be worn out?


Hi you need to identify where the water is coming from three main places are 1: pump seal 2: a hole in the drain hose 3: Main bowl seal my advice is turn it off at the wall lean it over and have a look underneath and clean floor area. does the base of the main motor look clean if yes its probably not the main bowl seal. So its down to the last two if your models got the plastic removable cover on the front its easy to remove it and watch where the water is leaking from my "guess" is a pump seal you will see it drip/ splash of the pump fan during drain/ spin cycle Be very careful to turn off at wall as there is voltage around these things even when power is off at the machine panel

Hi. My smartdrive 6.5 kg top load washer pushes cold water up the hot water line while it is filling up. I don't use hot water. thank you


on your machine when you select cold, the hot water valve will open automatically letting cold water thru it.can you connect the hot hose up to a tap to stop the water leaking out? or you can buy a screw on plug from a hardware shop that will cap off the valve at the machine or the hose. sometimes to save a customer money i connect their hot hose to the hot valve then fold the hot hose in half and tape it in that position . this stops the water. hope this helps. please reply for further help if you need it
