SOURCE: Water leaking out of frigidaire

First, have you drained the tank recently. If not, the warning light or auto shutoff failed and the tank may be overflowing. Worse case scenario is the that the tank is dirty and is not allowing the coils to cool and the dripping water you see is from the cooling coils. Since the tank is not removable, it's very difficult, at best to clean the tank.

If you drain the tank and before reinserting the drain plug, try to get about 1/2 teaspoon of bleach in the drain hole. followed by 2 cups of water. Of course you'll have to use a funnel of sort to do this. Reinstall the drain plug and move the unit around so the water and bleach will slosh around. Then run the unit until the bucket is near full again and drain it thoroughly. Look at the color of water draining out, for an indication that there is dirty water. That will be a good indication, that some cleaning of the tank has taken place.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Frigidaire washer model LAFW70000LWO leaking from bottom of washer

    would suggest cleaning out the coin or filter trap to see if debris has clogged the drain lines. This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.

    To check for a restriction in the drain line you will need to follow the steps below:

    1. Unplug the washer

    2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can

    reach the screws below the front panel and

    remove it. (You will need something to catch

    the water once the hose is removed from

    the bottom of washer)

    3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the

    bottom of the washer. The water will begin to

    come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do

    not remove any GREEN clamps)

    4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand

    inside the hose to clean it out.

    If any proves to be ineffective contact a professional so they can properly and accurately diagnose the unit for repairs. Unit could possibly have a damaged/cracked tub, a leak in the drain lines, or the water valve.

    Water leaking from under Frigidaire fridge

    Hello - There are many reason for this issue to occur, for example the refrigerator could have a crack in the defrost pan, a defrost drain line blockage, a leak from the water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, but most cases water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet. Try confirming that the vales are tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn of the water supply line to the water valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal. If these suggestions prove to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

    I have water leaking out the back of the freezer side of my side

    Pull the fridge away from the wall and check where the water line enters the fridge for the ice maker. If there is a fitting there, make sure that it is tight or the clamp is secure. If it looks cracked or split in any way, remove it and replace it with new hose.

    Hope this helps,
