Question about Washing Machines
I do not want to use my washout tub anymore. I want to connect straight to septic about 7' above floor. A) Do I need a straight pipe. B) How long of a straight a straight pipe? C) Will any water come back into the washer?
Waste water from the washer is not pumped out but rather is gravity fed down the drain. You cannot drain the water up higher than the washing machine's drain outlet. You would have to cut into the drain pipe - below the level of your washer's drain outlet - and put in a T that will tie into the drain pipe and allow for some type of connection to be made from your washer's drain hose.

Testimonial: "My washing machine is in the basement so tying the line to a T connector is not an option. If the waster is not "pumped" out of the washing machine then why is their a 8' height limit in the manual?"

SOURCE: water on floor under washer
Could be splash.
If you tip washer back and look under bottom, do you see water dripping in area of black motor--even small drip? if yes, look at my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot".
Mine started with a little water leaking. After a few loads of small leaks, it wouldn't spin out at all--would shut itself down and then I smelled hot electric motor. You need to remove white plastic housing/black motor and replace this unit. see my issue on how to remove--it's easy to do.

just remove bolts, open bit enough to fill with silicone, close back wait to dry, ready to go for couple more years.

Sounds like you have a bad water pump. Remove the hose going into the water pump and coming out of the pump and the pump should pull directly off the shaft check to make sure it spins freely.

SOURCE: Water Leak
Yes all you have to do is take off the front cover of the washer or the back cover, it it usually the front on top load washers. I believe your water pump may be cracked, but am not sure. What you need to do is remove the cover and start your washer and let it fill. Get a flashlight and pay close attention to where the water is leaking from. Then all you have to do is replace the part and your done. Any part dealing with water leaking will not be hard to change.
