Janet I am VERY SURPRISED at this Whirlpool would do this...Shame on it! LOL. OK, Enough goofing around! Da Problem is Z in the Tub! It can be the following 1) Tub Seal (Most common) 2) Pump not draining (Second Most) 3) Washer exterior Drain to house. I forgot to mention this Is Very Common!. Janet these are the Easy fixes. The hard ones involve the tub being cracked (OMG!) or hose connections are cracked to/from washer and interior. Using the Wrong Soap! I know it is a reach but I have to mention it. If it is not the tub seal or the tub. You Gotta problem and you have to weigh the age of your washer vs purchasing a New one. If it is less than a yr old the Manufacture will take care of it. If you call Sears, plan on at least around $130+Parts. That may Pay for itself cause the person repairing it will guarantee the work. Good luck

SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation


Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

Go to fill machine water comes out of bottom


You may have a leaky fill hose, or you may have a faulty 'donut' seal, which sits on top of the transmission and is sandwiched between the inner and outer tubs. You could also have leaky inlet hoses, which are attached to the wall water valve and then to the back of the washer. At worst, you may have corrosion on your outer tub that resulted in a hole through it.


Pull your washer out from the wall so you can access the back. Try to see exactly where the leak is coming from. If your leak is from the inlet hoses, which is the most common place, simply shut off the water supply, remove and replace BOTH of the hoses, even if only one is leaking.

If the inlet hoses are okay, remove the back panel of the washer (it's simply attached with screws - easy to remove), start the fill cycle of your washer and watch for where it is leaking. Look for calcium buildups on and around the hoses. These buildups would indicate a leak.

If you find that an internal hose is leaking, remove the spring clamps at each end of the bad hose and obtain a replacement.

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?

Amana washer model LW6501W2 leaks in front during fill up


It leaks Your 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.

Leaking underneath but all hoses are connected


When a washer is leaking, there are several areas where the liquid could be coming from.
If it only leaks during a spin cycle, it's probably caused by a leaky drain hose

Leaks on a front-load washer can occur around the door seal. This can happen because of a build-up of dirt and soap on the seal itself preventing a proper seal from taking place. Wipe the door seal carefully making sure that the edge of the gasket is clean.
Parts of a plastic bleach dispenser can crack or break off, causing a leak intermittently during the flush process. This is because bleach is a very corrosive chemical. Heavy use of liquid chlorine bleach can pit and rust stainless steel parts..
You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.
Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.
Tub leaks are usually caused by a rotted tub. If this is your problem, consider buying a new washer. Sometimes a constant imbalance can be the culprit. This imbalance can rub a hole in the tub if it consistently runs off-balance. It may be possible to repair the tub with an epoxy kit. Tub replacement isn't usually very economical.
The main tub seal can also leak. This is located where the transmission and the outer tub in the centre. If this seal goes bad, it can be very difficult to replace.
Sometimes the water-inlet valve develops a buildup of mineral deposits and rust. To check this, remove the water-inlet valve and visually inspect the surface.
There is a cool product that is designed to help prevent water damage from a leaky washer. It's called a Washer Floor Tray This tray catches water leaks and prevents floor damage from overflows. This product is a must for upstairs laundries
