Re: Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine...

The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking. You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking. Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.

It,s leaking

Hi, it could be a number of things like a rubber hose connection that's maybe started to leak underneath or the door seal has a worn part rubbed away by the clothes or just a seal has broken. Its best to get it looked at as you don't want water into the electric's.

Water leak at bottom of Whirlpool Estate washer. Removed the cabinet. No leaks from the water pump, hoses or inlet valve. The tub leans a little toward the front of the machine. When filling/rinsin

It is common on Whirlpool models for the water to splash out the top when filling especially when sheets or nylon cloth is loaded in the washer. Air fills the cloth and balloons the garment up this caused water to bounce off the garment and splash out the back. This is the most common reason for those mysterious leaks. Lowering the water pressure coming into the washer can help prevent this.

Lg top loader ie error message, fills ok, but water running out of bottom of machine

Hi IE means Inlet Error. The machine thinks that it is not filling (as a certain time has passed without reaching level it wants).
This makes sense if water is running out the bottom.
You will need to find the leak. Maybe the tub to pump hose, or the drain pump itself. Once you stop the leak and the machine can fill in the correct amount of time, you shouldnt see the IE error any longer.

Water leaking at time the washer is being filled, not during wash cycle. Leak appears to be starting a bottom left side of the machine toward the front from the middle of the side. Observation does not...

you say water only leaks when it fills correct? am wondering if its the hose that feeds in to the washer
this would be from the inlet solenoids check the clamps in the machine.

Is it leaking only when it is filling or all the time? If it is only leaking during fill, it could be an air gap device
  • 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.
  • If it is leaking all the time it could be the main tub seal. Hope this helped.

    My washing machine is leaking water everywhere when rinsing

    you are over filling it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when you use the rinse cycle it just fills the washer up to get all the soap out of the clothes. try just rinsing less clothes then usual. if that is not the problem then on the bottom of your washer is either rusted out or there is a rubber seal that could be over used!

    let me know if that helped at all

    Frigidare front load washing macine leaks water

    Sounds like the dispenser is leaking somehow, there is no filter that would cause it to leak. Remove lid of washer by screws on back lip and inspect during fill to see where leak is.

    Drum filling with water when machine switched off

    what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them
