Hi, welcome.
That's an easy fix. The part number is 420143 and it can be changed with a phillips screwdriver. Just remove the single screw that secures the nozzle to the underside of the deck. You do not need to even lift the top of the machine you can take that screw out from within the tub.
You can order a replacement nozzle here:

You may wish to check the rubber elbow that attaches to the spout as those can rupture or tear if the machine has been overloaded.
If you find this information accurate, please rate as FIXYA.

My ecosmart gwl15 by fisher & paykel is dripping water inside the drum. It looks like may be from the bottom of the plastic spout, when I squeeze the rubber hose that is inside the machine it drips...


hi - first you need to know if its hot or the cold thats leaking - obviously one of the inlet valves is seeping, caused by dirt caught inside the diaphrams and generally not serviceable. if you dont use hot water for eg - swap em over or buy a new one and i will try & help you fit it.

First remove the power from the machine - take the screws off the top rear corners to gain access into the electonics, turn off the water too - remove the door and the display after - right the problem on the left side are the valves - either swap or replace - if you swap turn off the hot at wall so it wont seep.

Water leaks under machine when filling


Hello, if your washer leaks only when filling then you have to check these:
Air-gap device- The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
THE TUBE - There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak
inlet spout- Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tube. If the spout cracks or breaks free of it's mounting, it can cause a leak.
Thanks

My whirlpool top load washer is leaking out the front side, no hoses are leaking.


Hello there:
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. I will post this solution in 2 seperate posts for you ok?
You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these: Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it. The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

Water is coming from under the washing machine not out of the hoses, where could it come from?


There might be two possible reason for that.

it might be coming form the tub itself passing through the rubber seal of your plastic rotator(the big wheel inside the tub)

the other thing is in the junction of the hose the tub.

try to open the back of your washing macjine where you can get an access inside the wheel and the junction connector, from there you will the cause of the leackage. try to put some water while looking at so you can see where the water is coming out

Water is leaking out from the bottom


If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
  • Water inlet valve: If water drips even when the washer is off,check the water inlet valve. It is located inside the washer at the back of the unit. The fill hoses are attached to it. Replace if deemed necessary.
  • Water fill hoses: Check the water hoses from the household plumbing. Tighten it or replace it as necessary..
  • Main tub seal: It is located between the transmission and the outer tub. To see the leak, fill the machine with water with small amount of detergent then open up the machine's main access panel.. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. The seal is difficult to replace and you probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
  • Pump: You can spot the leak when the tub is full of water if the pump leaks. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. Replace it as necessary if it leaks.
  • Outer tub: The outer tub can rust, split, or be punctured.You may have to replace the entire tub but its not economical repair to do. Consult a qualified technician for details.

  3. Inlet spout: It is a plastic spout found on most washers near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
