Occasionally leaking from bottom of washer

Water leaking from bottom of washer, only occasionally.

    Does not always happen on the same load size or water temp. We always add clothes while the water was filling. Thought maybe it was unlevel...not the problem. Very intermittent.

    sounds like adding clothes after it was filled or bad drain line? or partially clogged plumbing

SOURCE: leaking detergent

Sounds like the back of the soap drawer or inlet hose is partially blocked. Check whether junior has posted a toy car in the drawer

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

Occasionally my Duet washer leaks water into the tub after the wash is completed. It doesn't happen often, but I have not found that it does it after any particular washer settings. Also, sometimes it is...


It may not be leaking water in but, may have an issue pumping out all of the water. Try taking the bottom panel off (three star patterned screws). Inside, in the center and on the bottom, you'll see a plastic circle with some rubber hoses going to it. It has a small handle. Turn it to the left to clean out the pump. Chances are you have some lint, coins, or other debris preventing it from working properly.

Occasionally it will overfill


The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.

Washer leaking


This is hard to trace but is often tracked to a loose hose connection or less often, a defective seal or gasket. Disconnect utilities to the machine. Carefully tip the machine over from the back to that the front is at a 45 degree angle or so from vertical and brace it. Use a strong light to look for a water stain. Determine what to do from there.
