Water leaks from bottom of washer a day after I've done laundry

Washer does not leak during operation. I find a leak from underneath washer about a day after I do laundry. Then I find another leak a day or two after that. Then another leak a couple days after that. Leak is roughly 1/2 a cup of water each time.

My guess is you have a slow leak in the inlet. Probably somewhere after the valve. Try turning the valves off between washes. If that fixes it you know it's an inlet leak. There is usually a pair rubber hoses (same connectors as a garden hose) connecting the washer to the inlet valves. In order of ease/price of fixing:

  • one of the gaskets in the hoses is cracked ($0.05)
  • one of the hoses has a crack or isn't sealing properly ($10)
  • the valve outside the washer is leaking ($15 if you DIY, $150 for plumber)
  • The connector or valve in the washer is leaking ($20-$30 if you DIY, $$$ if you pay a repairman, $0 if it's under warranty)

SOURCE: water leaking from underneath after washer drains

I have the same washer and there is a white plastic piece underneath the washer where two hoses go into. It contains the impeller that pumps the water out. Anyway, on my machine this piece was incorrectly injection molded at the factory. The glue bubbled out causing an air bubble -- once the air bubble in the glue can stand the pressure and pops, the leak occurs!!!!! If you are a handyperson, take this piece out and use exopy to fix.

SOURCE: Washer leaking

There are several things that will leak under a GE washer. The the usual suspects are drain hose connections, or hoses that have cracks or holes. I would inspect the hoses first as this would be the easiest fix. The other thing that can causes problems is the wash tub seal on the bottom of the tub. If the spanner nut (under the agitator) comes loose, the seal will unseat and the tub will begin to drip (I've had this one happen to me). Another cause can be the wash tub itself (I've also experienced this one). Inspect the wash tub for cracks. The tub can develop stress cracks and begin to leak. Especially if this is a washer that was involved in a move. To access the inside of the machine, the front should come off by pushing under the front lip of the machine with a putty knife. There are metal clips that hold the front to the top. Look in the crack with a flashlight to locate them. Push in with a putty knife to release and the front should just come off. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: leak coming from bottom of washing machine

It might not have totally emptied during the last cycle.  Try laying the hose where the water empties down.  The level of the hose needs to be lower than the water level to be able to drain.  Make sure you have a bucket to empty in to.

Why is water leaking from bottom of double stack fridgidaire washer/dryer combo?


Thank you for your post, friend!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

My maytag epic z is leaking from underneath


Remove the front bottom panel. Should be three 1/4" screws on bottom lip of panel. See if you can tell where leak originated. Chances are good you just need to pop the cap off the drain pump and clean it out. Here is a vid that explains the procedure.

Washing machine leaking water from underneath


It is possible it is just a loose hose or it could mean your trmp or the tub itself is leaking. I would try going to the back of the machine and take off the bottom panel.and take off the back panel. After removal start it and observe where the leak is happening.

I just did a load of laundry at my mom's beach house. Second load so far is fine, however, first load seemed to leek from underneath. All water/drainage connections were dry. We moved and cleaned area and...


If all connections were dry, the water may have overflowed the top of the tub during a spin /rinse cycle. That could happen if there was a lot of water (i.e. set for large load) and a small amount of clothes.

GE Front Load Washer


Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!

The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.
