Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

We have a front loading Whirlpool Duet washer, and we have just noticed a leak as of today. It isn't from the hoses or anything, and it doesn't leak during fill up, but during the wash cycle, water just streams out of the right side (left facing) of the machine, right where the base of the washer attaches to the rest of it. There are three or four different streams of water coming out. They are mainly on the corners of the machine, right where it is attached, as well as one or two streams in the middle. I seems to be only on the right (left facing) side. Does this sound like a bellow problem?

SOURCE: Water leaking from the bottom of the washer at the rear right corner!

firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.

SOURCE: My whirlpool duet front load washing machine stops in mid cycle


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the “Sd” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear.


1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
6. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
7. Replace the pump.

Alternative Procedure:

If the machine cannot be forced to its diagnostic mode then:

1. Disconnect the washer from the power supply and water supply.
2. Remove the top panel by taking out the three screws in the back of the washer. The pressure switch is right on top.
3. Remove the Molex connector from the water level switch / pressure switch.
Refer to the picture below.
4. Reconnect the power supply but not the water supply.
5. Power the machine. The machine will enter diagnostic mode.
6. Power off the machine.
7. Replace the water level switch / pressure switch.
8. Reconnect the water supply.
9. Power on the machine it will work without error

SOURCE: My Kenmore 70 Series is leaking out of the front

Good day,
It sounds very much like the pump, which is located front center behind the cabinet.
I'm going to add a link. It isn't about the pump, but it shows you how to access that area.
Be aware that the screws that hold the top console may be different than shown.
They may be exposed on the front ends, covered by plastic covers which have to be unclipped, or as shown.

Thank you for using FixYa

My whirlpool duet front load has been leaking. It leaks only when doing a load of laundry. Leak is coming out the back and on the right side. Took the front bottom off to see if I can see anything and...

First, make sure that the washing machine is not too close to the wall behind it. This could crimp the drain hose & force water out at the connection behind the machine. This could also crack/split the washer machine's port (to which the drain hose attaches). Second, check the hose clamp for a secure hold at the washer machine's port, & check the drain hose for leaks & for insertion in the drain tube at the wall.

Broken Glass Sound

OK, who washing the dishes in the CLOTHES Machine?! Broken glass sound? You are sure your neighbor isn\'t playing a trick on you! I am going to guess that you have either a BAD bearing, in which it is time to look at Other Machines as an option. I mean if the clothes are getting clean and it drains all the water? Just shut the door! No I can\'t say that...Can I? Whirlpools (in my opinion) are one of the Best. The problems we are having today are these Front Load Machines are a Piece of Crap! They do not use enough water. You have to use Hi Definition 3X\'s more expensive soap..that doesn\'t Clean the garments. This sounds BAD. I had the same problem and bought a USED Whirlpool Top machine for $150 dollars from a guy who"Likes" to tinker/work on them and three years later...Going Strong! Sorry I could not help you

Sounds like you have a seal issue. Try and shut the water from the back connection off after you do a load. I believe that it sounds like you have a leak from the gasket and it is letting water in when you don't want it there. If the water isnt there then we have narrowed the issue. Please let me know what happens. Hope it helps!

My whirlpool duet washer leaks. It is not the

The following link explains how to determine where a leak may be coming from in a Whirlpool Duet:

In many cases, the rubber bellow (door seal) is the source of the leak and will need to be replaced. If the bellow is ripped or torn the following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

NOTE: THe bellow does wear out from time to time and will need to be replaced. However, using too much detergent, the wrong type of detergent, or loading the washer excessively can contribute to premature wear and tear and deterioration.

If you have any questions, or are having problems determining where the source of where your leak may be coming from , please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool fron load Duet washer leaks

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Flooding like that usually means a bad drain hose or bad hose connection either at the bottom of the basket or at the drain pump. Need to check both.
