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.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

My Cabrio washer is leaking (badly) from the bottom of the machine. Leaked so much water that the water went into the basement. I just had the computer repaired, but now this . . .


Morning, just from your description, it sounds like several things. A leaking pump, a broken hose, a transmission leak. You probably are going to have to call a serviceman on this one.

My washer leaks water all the time


If it is leaking all the time while running it could be the drain pump. A coin had made its way into mine and cracked the housing. Itis located towards the right rear of the machine on the bottom, while standing in front of the machine.

Cabrio drains water onto floor.


I took the back cover off of the machine and found that the drain pump had a hole in it. The hole was caused by a coin that had made it's way down to the drain pump. The replacement pump cost $90.00 and was very easy to put in. If you google the words cabrio tear down you will come across a web site that has a video that shows you how to take the pump out. I have not had any leaks since. Keep the coins out of the washer, remeber to check your pockets to avoid paying out cash.
