Maybe the outlet pipe inside the machine is split or the seal at the bottom of the tub has gone

During the wash cycle of the 24" combo washer dryer, it leaked


A hose inside the washer is your most likely culprit. On older whirlpool washers they used a plastic hose to run from the pump to the back case of the machine that was pretty susceptible to cracking.

Leak onto floor...ran rinse and regulr cycle to locate leak...checked undersink connections. no apparent leak with testing.


if your leak occurs during the spin cycle than it is a plastic container-like component located at the bottom aft portion of your washer. Just follow your drain hose down to the bottom and you will see it. Part produces a "venturi" like affect to blast the drain water on out into the drain hose. The plastic gets old and it splits, you may not even be able to see the split until it is under pressure.

Water leaking at time the washer is being filled, not during wash cycle. Leak appears to be starting a bottom left side of the machine toward the front from the middle of the side. Observation does not...


you say water only leaks when it fills correct? am wondering if its the hose that feeds in to the washer
this would be from the inlet solenoids check the clamps in the machine.

During the fill cycle, the washer leaks water?


I've repaired leaks from bad rubber washers on the fill hoses as well as loose hose clamps on the back of the fill solenoids that run into the tub. Check closely.

Water leaking from bottom of front lode washing machine


It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
