Water leaking out of front bottom

Hi, we've never had a problem with the washer/dryer before. But recently, as soon as the water starts to enter the machine it begins leaking out of the bottom front. I checked my hoses for kinks and felt all the connections and it wasn't leaking from any of those. It seems to be coming out from under the machine somewhere! Big problem because it is leaking through the floor into my neighbors ceiling! Yikes! Please help!

Re: Water leaking out of front bottom

The pump filter seals in a most unintuitive way. It works well, but is hard to figure out and troubleshoot. If it becomes unsealed or pops out, the machine will leak horrendously.

Open trapdoor at bottom right of machine. If you see water leaking from around the filter handle, then proceed; if not, your problem is elsewhere. Pull on the filter handle, turning counterclockwise if necessary, until the filter comes out of the machine. Hold the filter in one hand and turn the handle counter-clockwise with the other. You may need pliers. Unscrew handle completely from filter. Place filter back into machine, pushing the rubber gasket into the opening with your fingers. Screw the handle back on, tightening as much as you can with your hands (pliers not needed this time). This should take care of the leak.

The way this works is that tightening the handle compresses the gasket and makes it bulge and seal the opening. But it must be uncompressed first, so you can get it all the way into the opening. Cool design, but not obvious, and not well described in the manual.

Don't use too much detergent!  Only a cup and half will do the job, otherwise you will blood your floor.  A strange machine with it's own personalty.

More than likely that your door seal has a hole in it open the door pull on the seal to look under the lip of it you will find the hole under there common fault that people dont check if not what u can do is tilt the washer back turn it on and u will find the leak like that thats the easiest way to find the leak but it will be your door seal trust me on that one m8 check all the way around it but it will be on the bottom under the lip

Leaking water when washer begins to load water.

Fist place to check is the outlet hose at the back of the machine it will leak as soon as water enters the tub, see if is leaking there, if it is you just have to tighten the clamp . if not there are a few hoses inside of the machine that may need clamps tightend also. The motor is seperated from the water so that wont be leaking. It could also be the electric water inlet valve that is leaking. let me know what you find out !

Leaking from a washer/dryer in condo

Just turn off the water, remove the hoses and unplug it, then bring it out away from the wall. You should be able to tilt the machine and see it from underneath to detect the source of the leak. Also, find how to remove the front of the washer without dimantling the machine and run it without the front panel on there. That is the best way to track down your leak. It could be a seal under the tub, a hose coming from the tub to the pressure valve, a hose from the water pump or the pump itself. The pump is at the bottom, so it will get wet regardless of where it is leaking from. Make sure you dry out everything before you start to look for the leak.

2003 Whirlpool Duet Washer clear water pooling in drum after use.

When the machine is off, there are only two ways water could possibly enter. 1 Check the drain hose install, that it is not installed deep in the standpipe, if the hose is shoved too deep, it can sometimes siphon (rare with front loaders) water back into the machine.
2. Most likely cause, a slow leak from the water valve. Sometimes the water solenoid will not close completely, and you will get a very, very slow leak into the machine.
If not the drain hose, try shutting off the water supply valves when done using the machine, if that takes care of it, you may want to replace the machine's inlet valve.

Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water

There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.

Dryer not wrking - letting in water

Does the water come in all the time? If so turn off each supply line faucet to identify which line is leaking and take that valve inside the washer apart and clean it out, if not completely replace that module. Let me know more about what exactly is going on.
