My LG WM1814CW Washer is gushing water from underneath during every wash. We pulled the washer out and checked the hose lines and everything is fine there. What is underneath that could be leaking? Do we...

sorry about your floor! yes you need to pull it apart and see if anything looks funny-if no hoses are loose the tub may be leaking-this would be happening around the door seal-also try to wiggle the tub to check the tub bearing-which could also cause the leaking-if it seems to be loose this could be the problem also-cheers Denny

My 1983 Ford Tioga motorhome is leaking when I try and fill up the water tank. It has been sitting for 10 years and I can't tell if the leak is from the water tank or the old tubes. Where shoul

If water is getting under the carpet its probably the tank or a fitting on the tank.
I don't know of a way to find out unless you remove the tank to see under it.

Water underneath unit?

Check your water hoses may be leaking behind the machine or at the tap.If the hose is leaking turn all taps off. the alloy crimp needs to be cut off & put a hose clamp on the hose.turn all taps off when machine has finished the wash.

Check your hot and cold hoses at the back for leaks,
these are just crimped on plastic ends and can crack and leak..

I have a 1999 oldsmobile aleo i do not know where the engine coolant goes

Are you asking where to actually put the coolant in or asking why your coolant is needing to be replaced often?
If you are not sure where the coolant goes - it goes in the radiator. Should be in the front of the engine compartment, has a cap on top of it (either in the middle or on one side) with warnings about not opening of overheated. Unscrew the top & follow any mixing instructions on the coolant labels.
If you are loosing coolant & don't know why: Check coolant levels first, look for any leaks from hoses (make sure your connections are tight & hoses are not cracked/busted), check for leaks from the radiator itself (any holes or cracks), check the fan (is it turning like it should with the motor running), check the fan belt (is it broken). If all these things check out - get your water pump checked (if it's out, water is not getting to/circulating around like it should). If it's not the water pump, you may have a cracked head gasket. Check the easy stuff first though - good luck.
