It could be something as simple as the drain hose being unattached, if so just reattach and check the hose clamp is on (if not grab one from a hardware store they're cheap and save having to reattach often). Other than that check for splits in the hose, the smallest split leaks a huge amount of water, if it is just replace the hose (again available at most hardware stores).

IWL16 leaves black specs on clothes


there could be something stuck in the machine between the two bowls. lifting the lid, removing the ring, agitator and inner bowl will easily check this. if the machine has become loud on spin, and the leak is actually from the bottom (more likely) then it could need seals and bearings replaced. don't run it too much more while leaking, electricity and water don't mix XD

Washer leaking water while spinning


Check the drain hose where it leaves the machine, if the square section of it is not in the plastic housing it will cut on the cabinet, if this has happened replace the hose they are difficult to repair, Other possibilities, pump is leaking, and check that the inlet hoses are not leaking and have washers in every connection.

Fisher & paykel ilw16us leaks water when filling


Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
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.


  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.


  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Some things to check- Start with the water pump underneath the machine in the right-front of the unit. Look for signs of rust or leakage, that would be the most likely cause. Also check the operation of the diverter valve, inspect it to make sure there is not something like a lint ball or small object caught in the flapper; this can allow water to seep out of the diverter when it is supposed to be sealed in the spin or drain cycles and this seepage will get on the tub's rim as it spins and cause a leak on the floor. This kind of leak will cause water to appear as if it is leaking between the top and the cabinet.

Word of caution- the water pump is electric, and if you allow this leaking to continue, it can actually short out boh the water pump as well as the machine control.

If afer you solve the issue, if you find that I have accurately described the problem, a FIXYA rating is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Washer leaking from top


Sounds like it's plugged and the water is thrown by the centrifugal force. Sometimes stuff can get between the drum and tub, plugging the drain. This can be sporadic, sometimes no problem cuz the item is away from the drain hole during extract.
Sometimes minor partial disassembly will allow you to see between the drum and tub. A pick up tool can snag things down deep.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
