Washing Machine Emptying

The minute I turn on my washing machine and the water starts to fill up, it comes right out at the bottom and onto my floor. I don't think it's a hose leaking (though I could be wrong), because I think in that case, there would be a CONSTANT leak. With this there is ONLY water when the machine is running. Could there be a leak in the tub or something? I can't do a load at all because the water comes right out onto the floor. Help please! :)

    Thank you!! Now that I know chances are it is the tub, I think I'm just gonna get a new one. I actually bought this washer used 18 years ago (it's 70's avocado green and the same kind is even seen in the background on That 70s Show ha! lol), so I would imagine it is time :) I just didn't want to get a new one and then find out it was the line or something unrelated to the washer. Thanks so much for you help!

Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub.  Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses.  Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath.  Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.

How do you cancel wash cycle on candy do df 800 the programme is stuck on filling up so have turned water supply off but cannot cancel programme


Good evening Julie
you have problems with your Candy, so have I with mine.it is mostly when I am starting a drying program, that she starts washing again. Then I :
  • turn the machine off
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
  • Turn on emptying
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
  • Turn on spinning
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
Try this way, turning the machine off, waiting and over to the programme you want.
good luck

My washing machine is a hotpoint WF240. It started to overflow with water and spilling onto floor. We pulled it out from wall and found outgoing pump had fallen down, we put it back where it was supposed...


The machine will fill with it connected to the Electrical supply then stop if unplugged providing the fill valves/ water is okay....If it keeps on filling after unpluged then sounds like faulty fill valve,if on the other hand it fills without stopping when plugged in then its your air hose or Pressure switch at fault,Good luck

Water running out


Is it from the water valve assembly or coming from under the machine? if it's from under the machine you may have a bad fill hose or a bad tub gasket, But I need some more info to help you.

WHEN I TURN WASHER ON WATER STARTS POURING OUT OF THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE AND ONTO THE FLOOR. WATER IS COMING FROM THE BOTTOM LEFT SIDE.


The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.

sounds like you may have a hole inside the inner tub, depending on the model an the labor might be cheaper to buy a new one, i priced one for my old kenmore an was told 150 DLS. AM IN chicago, but i took it apart found the hole an sanded the hole with some sand paper, used a little piece of plastic patch looks more like a window screen an then used about 3 layers of JB weld an it fixed so far, is been working for over 6 months, knock on wood........lol.............good luck..........
