Cabrio model WTW824OYWO . is leaking water a from the back at the valves area all hoses and connection ok ..leaks about one to two cups water only sometimes what will cause this ???

If the supply connections are located above the machine inlets, water pressure and gravity may cause leaks, even though all connections are tight. Some manufacturers recommend turning off the supply between washing sessions but I don't think this is practical.

My washer is leaking when draining very small leak what can i do

Start with inspecting the entire lenghth of the drain hose for any type of pin hole or abrasions that could be the source of your leak.
If the leak seems to be coming from the inside of the machine, take a putty knife or something similar and insert it between the front panel and the top panel that the lid is connected to about two inches in from the edge of the side panels and you should feel a fastener, push inward or towards the back of the machine, you will have to push hard, this will seperate the top and front panels, lift up on the front panel and remove it, now inspect the inside of the machine and try to locate the source of the leak, you may have to run the washer thru different cycles(fill,drain,spin,etc.) to see the leak source.
Pay close attention to the pump area for the leak, this has been a source of leaks in the past, with a plastic pump housing, they have been known to develope leaks by way of holes worn thru the plastic housing!

I was changing the hoses and in the process my wrench nicked the plastic hose connector on the machine. Now when I connect the new hose it leaks. Is it possible for me to put a new plastic connection on...

The part is the water valve. Before replacing it you may want to try to apply some teflon tape on the threads, also be sure you have the rubber washers installed in the hoses.
You can replace this part yourself if needed part number is 21001932 and should run around 35$.

Be sure to unplug the washer before proceeding, and slide the washer away from the wall about 2 feet.

You will need to first pop up the top of the washer. The entire top is designed to open like the hood on a car. Between the front panel and the top about 3 inches in from the left and the right sides you will see the face of a spring clip. You need to use a putty knife to depress the clips and lift the front edge of the top. swing the top all the way up and allow it to lean against the wall behind the washer. Be sure it is tipped back enough that it is not gonna swing forward and hit you.
You will now be able to access the valve located in the back of the machine. There is usually one screw that holds the valve to the back of the machine. There will be two wire connections on the valve that need to be removed, and the hose that connects to the top of the valve.
Good luck with this!

I have water on floor on the left of a top loading kenmore washer

There are hjoses on the inside of your machine that connect to the tub. The fill is turned on by a electrically controlled valve. When it opens, the tub fills and if the hose is cracked or the connection is loose, the water will spill out of the hose. You have to open the back up (I think that is how you get in there) and check the hose and the control valve. Does it only leak on the cold? Or does it leak on both?

Water coming from bottom of machine

If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg

water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop
