Likely just a hose - but pay particular attention to the plastic pump - it may be cracked.

Please let me know the best way to put my car away in my driveway shelter for the winter


Best advice I can give you is to change your oil and anti-freeze. Anti-freeze will break down over time and if you have old anti-freeze over winter, it will go bad, same with the oil. You should also add a fuel preservative into your gas. It will help prevent oxidizing within your fuel system which will prevent any rusting that could harm the engine. Id also recommend, if you plan on driving it any time, to get a battery charger of some sort. Even if the car isnt running, it is still drawing on the battery to maintain several different things. Lastly, Id suggest moving the car every now and then, as the tires will develop flat spots from sitting still for too long. Ill link you a page with some helpful information as well. Hope this was of use to you!

Leaking in base somewhere, badly. Can't get any water out of wand either.


Pump leaks are nearly always from freezer damage. Replace pump and always use anti-freeze for winter storage.

Drain washer pump for winter


Turn off the water at the cold and hot taps. Disconnect the hoses from the taps and the washer and drain them. Lay the drain hose flat on the floor to drain it to a container. With the hoses disconnected and the drain hose flat, start the fill cycle (set to WARM) briefly (15 seconds) to open the inlet solenoid valves and allow water to drain from them. Start the rinse cycle to pump any residual water out of the tub and drain (15 seconds).
OR
Turn off water and disconnect inlet hoses as described above. Pour 1 gallon of RV anti-freeze (for potable water systems) into the tub. Start the rinse cycle just enough to start the drain so antifreeze goes through pump and into drain hose. Before using the washer again, run a small rinse through to flush out the anti-freeze.

What is the best way to winterize a standard large capacity washing machine?


If the product will be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures, turn off the water supply to washer, disconnect fill hoses, drain them and reconnect. Remove the drain hose from the standpipe in the wall and place it into a shallow pan at floor level untill the water floe stops. Unplug unit and you are good to go.

If no sub-freezing temps are expected, turn off water supply. Turn on washer for a warm wash cycle for a few seconds to relieve the pressure in the hoses. Turn off machine and unplug it.
