It could be the boot seal, (rubber piece that joins the tub to the front panel). the boot can get a hole in it or it can pull away from the tub if the clamp loosens. if it is the front of the outer tub that is cracked the manufacture did warranty the tub for ten years prior to 2006. check your owners manual as that is what the company has to honor. they only cover the part not labor, and in the usa only. i hope this helps.

Water is coming from the machine. we have checked the hoses but did not find any cracks. Any suggestion on what it could be and how to fix it?


The hose that connects at the water pump may be your culprit in the leak. Otherwise, the tub gasket is leaking.

If you are able, position the washer on top of 4 concrete blocks (1 at each corner), that should make it easier to see underneath with a mirror to see where the water is coming from, and verify that water is leaking from the pump area.

Leaking water from the front of the washer checked the hoses and they are not leaking


If this is a top load washer the problem is usually the pump. If you can tilt the washer up at the front and support with two pieces of 2x4. Shine a light under the maching and take a mirror to observe. Fill the washer 1/2 full of water and advance the time into the spin cycle. Observe under the maching to see where it is leaking. The pump is located at the front of the washer. If the pump is leaking, replace the pump.

Our whirlpool is leaking from the bottom during


The only way to determine where the leak is coming from is to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door. Remove the panel by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. If you prop the front feet up this will give you better access (a 2 x 4 works well).

With the panel removed inspect the rubber door bellow. If the front counterweight (gray concrete block on the front of the tub) is wet, the bellow is leaking. Pull the rubber folds back and look for any rips or tears. If the bellow requires replacing, or if you need to simply tighten the clamps, the following link will explain how:

NOTE: Check the plastic dispenser hose on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is inserted all the way through the rubber to the flange joint. Sometimes this dispenser hose will slip behind the bellow and allow water to seep inside the cabinet of the washer.

Check the drain pump to ensure the filter cap is secure and not leaking. The pump is in the front directly below the wash tub. If the pump IS leaking, make sure the filter cap is tight and all hose clamps are snug. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

Check all hoses the run from the wash tub to the pump, and from the pump to the standpipe at the wall for any signs of cracks or tears.

If the leak is coming from the center portion under the tub, the tub seal is breached and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy repair and will require some extensive disassembly to repair. (Cross that hurdle when the time comes).

Any replacement parts you may need can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can use any web source you like, but these I have found, offer great service with competitive pricing. Shop all of them for the best prices. Hopefully you won't need any parts.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool ultimate care is leaking under,I did check the hoses and they are okey. What could be the problem?.


Can you describe where the leak may becoming from? For example, near the front, from under the washer, or near the back.

If you notice a pool of water coming from under the washer near the FRONT, this is commonly caused by a leaking water pump. Since these pumps are sealed units and are considered non-serviceable, it must be replaced. They cannot be resealed or "fixed".

If the leak appears to be leaking from under the washer near the CENTER of the tub, either the tub seal is leaking or the air dome hose may have come loose. If the tub seal is leaking, it also must be replaced. If the air dome hose comes loose, however, the washer will never fill up all the way and will continuously run. This will cause a flood rather than a drip.

If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, this can be caused by cracked fill hoses, loose fill hose connections, a leaking drain hose, or a fill valve hose leaking.

Since you said you checked your hoses, I suspect a water pump, or something loose. Can you please confirm your symptoms and let me know?

Kenmore washer, elite 70 series is leaking water on floor


the hose from the drum to the pump, and from the pump to the drain, are at the front,
Movement of the drum during wash cycles, wears the short hose between drum and pump and it develops cracks, eventually a wash load of any size will finally cause one of the cracks to penetrate through the rubber, and constant drip occurs.
Its an easy fix, no more than screwdrivers needed.
the local parts guy will have the hose, even if it is labelled ge frididaire whirlpool the same hose is common to many makes and models

  • turn off water unplug washer
  • pop the endcaps off the control panel, and completely remove the phillips head screw under each endcap dec762a.jpg
  • lilft the control panel ~1inch and flip it over the back of the washer,
    (do not dislodge the water level sensing hose or we'll be back to fix it later, hinges are plastic, dont bust em)
  • remove the two brass clips under the control panel
    (note position for reinstall)
  • remove lid switch connector
  • lift entire body up ~1 inch and remove forward
  • motor pump hoses gearbox are now exposed.
examine hose from drum to pump, and from pump to cabinet rear,
replace cracked and crazed hoses.
reassemble in reverse order

Water leak


Remove the lower panel under the washer door and inspect the interior. The panel is removed by loosening and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the following areas:

- Check all hoses for leaks, cracks, holes and loose connections. Check the seal where the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub connects to the intake of the drain pump. Make sure the drain hose from the pump to the standpipe is connected snug to the pump and is not leaking.
- Check the drain pump to ensure it is not leaking. The clean out reservoir cap (if not fitted properly) can leak around the seal.
- Check the door bellow (gray rubber boot) to ensure it is not leaking. HINT: A tale-tell sign of bellow leakage is wetness showing up on the front washer counterweight. This is a concrete block mounted to the front of the wash tub. It is not supposed to be wet.
- Check the pressure switch air hose to ensure it is connected to the air dome on the side of the wash tub. This is a small rubber hose that runs from the pressure switch in the top left rear of the washer (viewed from the back, with the washer top panel removed) to the bottom right hand side of the wash tub. However, if this hose were to come off the air dome fitting, the wash tub would continously try to fill and water would begin to pour from the bottom of the wash tub. If this does not sound like your symptoms, disregard this step.
- Check the seam where the wash tub shells meet. There is a rubber tub gasket that seals the two tub halves together. If the seal is bad, water will begin to collect and drip along this seam.
- Check the tub for cracks. This is NOT common, but it can happen.

The following link explains the step-by-step process of checking and cleaning the drain pump:

I mention this link, because it gives you some guidance on how to access the pump and how avoid the possible mess involved with water pouring out of the pump.

If you discover the door bellow as the the cause for your leak, please refer to this link:

Drops of water inside pedestal of washer.


Sounds like you have a leak around the door bellow somewhere, or your drain pump. The bellow is the rubber gray boot the seals around the wash tub and door. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door to be sure. Remove the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the washer with a load running. If the bellow leaks, a tell tale sign will be moisture showing up on the concrete counter weight in the front of the washer. Double check your drain pump and hoses as well. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. The water tends to pool in the cabinet before it leaks out and drops into the pedestal drawer. If the bellow is leaking, make sure inspect it for rips and tears. You may just have a banding clamp that is loose. If the pump is leaking, make sure the clean out trap is on correctly and snug.

PS If you just purchased this washer and are experiencing problems already, this repair is covered under the one year limited warranty. Inspecting for a leak is not going to void the warranty. However, removing any major parts may. Just do an inspection to see if it is something obvious. If you suspect a part failure, get in touch with the retailer. If this was purchased from S**rs, they usually have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with the appliance, they should take it back.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Amana washer leaking.


Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.
