Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.

SOURCE: leaking water from underneath.

sounds like several problems. sounds like your boot stem/ seal is leaking and possibly the tub bearing is rusted. I generally replace both at the same time as long as the machine is apart anyway. As for the squealing and tub slamming to a stop, that is your brake package and bearing have dried and/or rusted and need to be replaced

SOURCE: My GE WCSE4160B2WW top load washer is leaking.

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker
thanks.

SOURCE: Leaking from underneath. Doesn't appear to be the incoming hoses or connections or the drain.

Have you checked the drain pump? These washers are notorious for developing leaks with the pump. To inspect thoroughly, you will need to remove the exterior case of the washer. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washing machine.
2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.
a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.
b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.
3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.
4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.
5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.
6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

Locate the water pump. It is a small plastic pump with two hoses connected to it, directly under the front of the wash tub. The pumps can develop small cracks and begin to leak. If this is the case, the pumps are not serviceable and must be replaced.

Check the tub seal. The seal in the center of the wash tub. If the seal develops leaks, you will notice water track marks on the transmission and a puddle under the center of the wash tub.

Check the the for cracks. Although it is not common, I have seen stress cracks develop on the exterior wash tub, causing leaks. The tub will have to replaced if this is the case.

Check the air dome hose to make sure it is still attached and not leaking. It is a small plastic hose that runs from the pressure switch in the console to the lower right hand side of the wash tub. If the hose comes loose of develops leaks, the washer will begin to leak as it fills (usually about 1/3 of the way full).

To reinstall the case, follow these steps:

1. Re-install washer case. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.
2. Make the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side and reinsert the brass clips. Place the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push it into the opening on top of the washer. It will snap back into to place.
3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.
4. Reinstall console.

NOTE: Run some water in the tub about 1/3 of the way full BEFORE you remove the exterior washer case. That way you can check for any leaks with water in the tub. Let me know what you fins. I hope this helps you.

sorry about your floor! yes you need to pull it apart and see if anything looks funny-if no hoses are loose the tub may be leaking-this would be happening around the door seal-also try to wiggle the tub to check the tub bearing-which could also cause the leaking-if it seems to be loose this could be the problem also-cheers Denny

We have an lg dishwasher LDS5811ST and there is an error code. LE or an or 2 capital E's with top missing off of the first E. We tried turning the breaker off for 20 minutes and there is water going into...


Kevin,

The LE error on the LG dishwasher means that the dishwasher believes there is a leak because the level of the water is decreasing between the time the wash or rinse cycle begins (with the proper amount of water) and before the cycle ends and the water is pumped out.

After you have ruled out a real leak (check closely underneath) then here is the next step. 99% of the problem with LE is caused by the drain hose not having a high point between where it connects at the dishwasher and the drain.

The fastest (but not best) way to fix this is create a loop in the drain hose raised high up underneath the counter top. Attach it so it will not fall back. The cause of the "leak" is the natural siphon effect that can develop when the drain hose has not high point. (exactly like the siphon tube you may have created in science class.)

Please report back what you find, OK?

Waterleak


is it leaking from the door or from underneath it. If it leaks from the door then you need a new seal. If it is leaking from underneath it could be the waterline coming into the dishwasher or the drain hose. Both fittings are underneath the dishwasher and are accessible through the lower panel on the face. Let me know if you can figure out where the leak is coming from and I will help you solve the problem.

Thx

Washer machine leaking water from underneath


Seems like a leaky hose or pump.
Other than ruin your floor, you should to take caution that if the water sprays onto electrical connections or the motor etc, I may cause a fire or electrocution so it would be wise to have it inspected as soon as possible.

Water Leaks from beneath my washing machine


Our WM2077CW just started the water leaking from underneath. We unplugged the electrical cord and disconnected the hoses (water, drain). We then removed the inspection plate from the back and checked for wet hoses. The big black hose on the bottom was a little wet. On careful examination we found a small hole that looked like a material fatigue failure at the point where the accordion part of the hose met with the solid part of the hose near the main drum connection. I suspect this is may occur in other LG washers of the same design. Unless your floor is perfectly level it's hard to tell whether coming from the left or right side really indicates where underneath the water is coming from.
