Hi
Not sure about your machine, we have a front loader. I guess you are talking about the same thing.
There is a filter in the front bottom, to collect pins, coins etc.
If this is not replaced correctly it will leak.
To service this filter unscrew it, clean it and the objects from it, then rescrew it back into the machine.
To test, without running the machine, simply pour some water into the detergent tray at the top. If water comes out the filter - it is not sealed. simply remove and try again.
Hope this solves the problem

If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

Water fills up in the tub but won't drain from the washer.


Filter may be blocked. Be careful taking it out, you will get flooded. Make sure you have something to collect the water as it rushes out. Also check the main drain isn't blocked. If you know how, unplug the rubber waste pipe at the back of machine (not from the bottom of machine but from where it connects to main drain) and see if the machine empties by running spin cycle. If water comes out of pipe then it's the main drain....if not it's either the pump or filter.

How to unblock a washing machine pump


Below is a step by step guide on how to unblock the filter on a washing machine:
1: unplug the appliance
2: lower the waste pipe to the floor to siphon out all the water
3: Locate the filter (normally on the bottom right hand side behind a flap)
4: Unscrew the filter anti-clockwise and pull out
5: Remove any debris from the filter
6: Spin the impeller with your finger to ensure it moves freely
7: Reinsert and tighten filter
8: Plug in appliance and select a wash cycle. Do not put on a rinse, spin or pump out only cycle as this will not reset the pressure switch to empty (only applies to certain models)

Kenmore washing machine 2 year old is now flooding my floor every 20 loads happiend 4 times. Please help.


Is the water flooding coming from the top of the washing machine?
Check the drain pipe in the back to see that it's not loose. Also, look inside the drain pipe and make sure there is no algae. Algae might cause low flow through the drain pipe and it will overflow.

Hope this helps.

Frigidare dishwasher did not spin


  1. Waste Disposal/Sink trap
    • Empty your food waste disposal unit if your dishwasher's hooked up to one. If it's not empty, the old food inside it will back water up into your machine. Check that your sink trap isn't blocked by unscrewing it from the base of your sink if you don't have a food waste disposal unit. Make sure your dishwasher or any other appliances connected to it are not running when you do so.
    Incomplete Cycle
    • You may have opened your dishwasher's door mid-cycle before it's had a chance to drain. Check the progress indicator on your machine's control panel. The structure of this will differ depending on which Frigidaire model you're using, but it should show the point your machine has reached in its cycle. If this is the cause of the problem, close your dishwasher's door and let it finish.
    Drainage Pipe
    • Inspect the drain pipe that runs from your machine to your waste disposal unit or sink. If this is kinked or has been squashed under another appliance or a base unit, the waste water inside your dishwasher will be unable to escape. Check that water can flow through your waste pipe freely.
    Filter
    • Remove the bottom shelf from inside your machine and take out the plate covering the filter area. If you don't rinse your plates before you put them into your washer, food debris could block your filter and stop water from reaching your drainage pipe. You can unblock your filter with your fingers. Turn off your machine's power before you attempt to do so.

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?


Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Check the drain hose, and inspect the filter for any foreign object.


I report :"E20 means your fluff filter / waste pipe is getting blocked and themachine cannot pump out the water. Try unblocking the fluff filterfirst at the bottom of the machine. This should work, if the faultappears again though and the fluff filter is clean your waste pipe isblocked and you need to flush this through. Can you tell what I've justspent my weekend doing, I have had to get the most unbelievable amountof limescale out of these 2 areas but machine is now working fine again."
