I found the solution myself. Underneath the machine, there is a plate. On the plate, there is a float and a microswitch, when the water leaks onto the bottom plate it raises the float and activates the microswith which shuts down the machine and shows E4 on display. To get rid of the fault, you have to pull out the dishwasher, then tilt it, and drain the water from the bottom plate. Also make sure that there is no leak in the internal piping, if there is, the fault will come back as soon as the recess in the bottom panel fills with water.Hope it helps.

Severe water leak at the bottom when turned on.


It sounds like the tubing that is suppose to be hooked to two spray nozzles has come loose. You will have to take that dirt tank off, then turn the machine upside down and take the two screws out that hold the hood on from the bottom by the brushes, and then turn the machine back upright and take the screw from the top out. You should be able now to take the hood off and see all the tubing exposed. There is only one tube that goes to the spaying part in the front and see if it needs to be pushed back onto its' barbed fitting. Put that back on and put the hood back together. That should get you going.

Sheets Or Comforters? This Normally Occurs With An Overload Such As Pillows And Comforters Due To The Large Circumference. Which Simply Means That Anything That Has A Large Area Will Make The Water Come Over The Top Because When The Machine Is Running The Spin Cycle The Large Area Of Fabric Covers The Side Of The Machine. Actually Causing Water To Spin Off The Top Of The Fabric And Over The Sides Of The Washing Machine Bucket Thus Ending Up On The Floor Below.

Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water


There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.

Leaking


This machine has two removable front panels. At the bottom of the unit are two (2) 10mm bolts. Removing these bolts will give you access to the working parts since this is an inspection plate, The upper panel : There are two (2) 10mm bolts located at the bottom corners. Remove these bolts, pull the bottom of the panel toward you to release the top latches. This will give you full access to see where the water is coming from. I suspect a leaking pump but cannot rule out a bad tub seal.

Washing machine leaks from bottom


Open up behind after pluging off the wall. Check the hose that comes from under the tub, likely it is damaged or slipped out. Refit or change if damaged. You need a good pair of pliers; dont forget to insert the grip clips well.
