Hello rgflaming200,
Based on your simplified problem description, you could have any number of problems but the first place I would look is in the filter trap via the access door ( near the bottom of the front of the washer unit) Open the access door and make sure the filter canister is tightened into its housing. Similar to a gas cap on your car... You may want to unscrew it and clean out any debris from previous wash loads and then make sure it is seated in all the way., There may be something else loose as well.. there are a few rubber boots that attach to stubs and use hose clamps.. these clamps could be loose or these rubber boots could have been punctured.. You might have water from the inlet fittings leaking... there are numerous potential leak points. You should be able to zero in on where that water is leaking by looking for leaks while it is running. Its more of a challenge if you have the dryer stacked on top. Here is a link to the service manual and that may help you locate and resolve your issue.. Good luck and hope this helps you..

Tighten the hose to make sure the gratin of washer hasn't rubbed it loose. Then run your hand up and down length of hose feeling for any kinks that would stop water from running out.bends are ok but twists or kinks will cause all water that ran in washer to fill to come out of the back

I unclogged the GD by removing the pipes underneath and replaced them tightly. GD seems to be working fine now, but water is slowly leaking from underneath the GD! It appears to be leaking from the...


The leak comes from above where water comes out.

Turn off power before touching wet electrical appliance.

Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
Check if water is getting through the putty seal at sink connection.

Next, check if water leaks only when dishwasher runs. Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.

Last, check tailpiece where it attaches to side of garbage disposal. The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber washer. When washer is old, it gets deformed, and then it doesn't seal perfectly when put back.

I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
It is gooey and sticky.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then assemble pipes.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.

Leaking underneath


Maybe its not draining completely? Have you tried opening the front panel, pulling out the white plug, putting a bucket under it, unscrewing the front of the plug and checking the filter?

We have had that happen too. You will need to take out what ever has blocked the valve on the drain. Ours was a bobby pin! My model is a bit different but if you follow the drain hose underneath you can find it. Remember you are dealing with lots of water. I think I scooped out the water first and have some towels ready. Or hire somebody to do it for you. I hope that helps.

1)right wont be a water surge if the water is coming from underneath washer when it is switched of could be that you have a leak and what it is doing is water is collect around the bottom and then spilling over so tip washer back fill it up and see were its coming from, 2)your hot water valve could be sticking on which in that case needs replacing take your lid off and when washer is off try and listen for water flowing through pipe
