Hooking up the washing machine with both hot and cold water hoses, ok, but can't locate the outlet where the washer tub drains into the drain hose. Do I need to remove the back panel to locate it? I know there has to be one, but I can't find where it is located. Please advise.

Re: Drain hose to crosley washing machine, where?
Looking at the rear of the washer, my Crosley drain is on the left, about 4" from the floor and about 6" from the side. You might need to remove the back panel. Probablyshould anyway, so you can blow the dust/lint out of it

could be the filter at the water input location in the back of the machine. Or the screen filter at the spigot-end of the input hose....check both hot and cold. First, turn both hot and cold water off at the wall outlet.
Machine is not that old, the wash cycle water intake is ok? maybe bad water inlet valve? try seeing how it works on only cold and only hot water, change the hose lines from hot to cold and see what happens? as for the fabric thingy may have abad clogged line or a tiny hole in line and its going elsewhere
What does it mean when a washer leaks from the bottom?
The pump will have an outlet or drain hose, an inlet from the tub and may have a circulating hose outlet as well. If you have water leaking from the washer during a wash or drain cycle, check the area of the drain pump. Look for signs of a loose hose clamp or a leaking hose connected to the pump first.

It is most likely the water pump on the washing machine. Check the hot and cold hose and make sure there are round gaskets on the inside of them and that they are tight on the hot and cold valves.
Also check the drain hose that it doesn't have any holes in it and that the hose is far enough down into the drain . If all that's ok, it's your water pump.
It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and
is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is
important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the
identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has
leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the
underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here.
In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the
house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside.
Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose
on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the
drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can
leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this
will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
it could be that you have somthing stuck in the pump or outlet hose I went to a machine the other day and it had a intermitent fault like yours and it was a coin stuck in the drain hose on the pump when it washed in cold it was ok but when it was a hot wash it expanded the hose enough to allow the coin to flap up into the pump outlet hole hope this might help you
There is a chance the drain hose has buildup within it and needs to be cleared out. This will take about an hour.
1- Unplug the electrical cord on the washer from the wall outlet.
Unfasten the hot and cold water
hoses from the water lines after you shut off the water valves. Use a
pair of slip-joint pliers to turn the hose fittings counterclockwise to
Pull the washing machine far enough away from the wall so you can comfortably work on the rear of the machine.
Locate the access panel toward
the bottom left side of the back of the washer. Use a nut driver to
remove the nuts that secure the access panel, and remove it.
Find the water pump, which will have two hoses attached to it.
Identify which hose is the drain
hose by tracing it to the outside of the machine. The pump may also be
labeled "Inlet" and "Outlet." The drain hose is attached to the outlet.
Squeeze the clamp that secures
the end of the drain hose to the water pump, using a pair of slip-joint
pliers. Remove the end of the hose from the pump.
Insert a plumbing snake into the
end of the hose and twist the snake as you feed it through the hose.
After approximately 10 feet of the snake is fed through the drain hose,
you should see the snake and the clog come out the other end of the
Reattach the drain hose to the
water pump and replace the access panel. Reconnect the water hoses and
turn on the water valves. Push the washer back against the wall and plug
in the electrical cord.

Turn off the
water valves which supply the water to washer hoses.Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses
and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using
cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If
this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove
the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The
water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected
to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection.
Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then
test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water
hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water
at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve.With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to
restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To
replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the
old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the
water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and
moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit
