If it is only leaking out when it is being filled then.........
Does it start to leak immediately? or does it take a minute or two?
A simple way to narrow down the cause is to fill the tank up using a bucket to fill the tank. If you get no leaking by the time you get an inch or two of water in the bottom of the tank then it's doubtful your problem is the drain or pump.
If however it leaks, then you have a loose or disconnected hose running from the bottom of the tank to the water pump or a damaged water pump.
This will require you to remove the front panel of the machine to check the lines and inspect the pump.

If you find no leak then........................
Does the washer leak on both hot and cold cycles?

Check this by running a hot then cold cycle through the machine, (just enough to start a leak). If it leaks on either cycle then it's after the water supply solenoids. If its just one or the other then it's between the outer supply lines and the a fore mentioned solenoids.

In either case it will require you to lift the top of the unit off. Most washing machines have hinged tops. Just look on the back at the gap where the top meets the back panel. If you see the hinge (one on either side), then you should be able to place a screw driver or wedge in the gap between the top and lower section at the front of the machine, on either side and pop it up.
This will allow you to check the water supply lines coming in from the rear, running into solenoids and finally through nozzles that fill the tank up. Make sure all the clamps are tight and no cracked or split lines.
If there is still nothing apparent then you can try running the washer with the lid parsley opened and attempt to see the leak.

Although the exterior lines connected to the back would leak whether the machine was running or not. Because you moved the machine you should check anyway.
Just make sure that the hose washers are still in place and not damaged.

If this doesn't help please post any results from the test I gave you.

Follow the hose from where it connects into the washer.. take off that panel and pinpoint leak. more than likely a hose is unattached

LG Turbodrum DD 8.5kg WT-R852 washing machine, will not completely fill with water to water, to initiate the wash cycle, wash process stops there.


THE WASHER IS OBVIOUSLY HAVING A PROBLEM DETECTING THE WATER LEVEL? IT DETECTS AS FULL WHEN ITS NOT AND THEN GOES INTO DRAIN CYCLE? THE FILLS AGAIN? I would suspect the water pressure switch but if it was detecting a full cycle it would sent it into wash cycle? the water inlet valve only allows the amount of water it is told to send in and does not control the amount or drain cycle. Im not sure here but Im thinking maybe the water level switch may be flawed, the one that has low-medium and high? all these can be checked with a multimeter

I have a Roper washing machine (Model: RTW4440XQ0, Serial #: C11740048) that is less than a year old. When you start the machine on any cycle (on high water level) it will fill up with water and run...


The machine was built to adhere to the low water guidelines of your overly intrusive government. Bought a new machine with the same problem. 1/2 tub of wash water and 3"-5" of rinse water. 3 different local service shops and the Whirlpool people said neither was adjustable. I found this unacceptable and decided I was going to make it work the way I wanted not the way the government schlocks said I must. Took out the 2 screws on either end of the control panel ( where all the controls are) lifted it up and found 2 ADJUSTABLE water level control switches. One 3-way for the wash water and one for rinse water. Cranked them both in and now I have a full tub of wash water and the same for rinse, Vote in 2012 to keep the government out of our homes and our lives,

Beginning of wash cycle starts agitating instead of filling w/water.


the water pressure/level switch contacts are welded together,usually the load selector switch for the amount of water lets it fill to a determined water level and the water level creates pressure in a tube from the tub to this switch and stops water fill and starts the wash agitation cycle,replace this switch inside the control panel
