Hi Richard, I want to help you with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF6000ES. If the reddish oily liquid is coming from the bottom of the appliance, it could be grease coming from the motor area. If the liquid is coming from the dispenser area, it could be either coming directly from your water intake, or possibly a backup in your dispenser area. Hope this has helped.

-Best Regards-

    So, if it is grease coming from the motor area, what does that mean? Is something broken or in the process of breaking? What repair might be needed now or eventually?

I have a leak coming from the drivers side of my engine of coolant its coming out of a hole above the trans any idea what that hole is or what goes there


hi Kemal.
  1. Park your vehicle overnight on a clean patch of pavement or a large, clean piece of white paper.Either tape some sheets of paper together or buy a roll of plain white commercial wrapping paper. Newspaper is too absorbent and can change the color of the stains.
  2. Place marks on the paper.
    Show where each of the four wheels is resting, and indicate the front and rear ends of the vehicle.
  3. In the morning, move the vehicle and look for small puddles or traces of liquid on the ground or paper.
    Touch and smell each puddle or trace of liquid.
Here's how to decipher the evidence:
  • If it's clear, watery, and under the air conditioner: It's probably normal condensation if you've used the air conditioner recently.
  • If it's black or dark brown, greasy, and located under the engine area:It's probably oil. Figure out which part of the vehicle was over the spot. Look under the hood around the oil filter and the engine and under the vehicle for leaks around the oil drain plug, the crankcase, and the oil pan below it.
  • If it's thick, black or tan oily liquid: Gear oil may be leaking from a manual transmission, the differential, an axle, or the steering gears. Any of these leaks needs immediate attention.
  • If it's red, pink, or reddish-brown and greasy and you have an automatic transmission: It's probably transmission fluid. Check the transmission dipstick, and if the level is low, top it off with the proper transmission fluid. Then check the dipstick again in a day or two. If it's low again, have a professional check the transmission to make sure that the seals are intact.
  • If it's watery or slippery; green, red, blue, or yellow; and is coming from under the radiator or engine: It's probably coolant. Check the radiator, pressure cap, engine, and hoses for leaks.
  • If it's oily; pink, red, or clear; and you find it toward the front bumper (usually on the driver's side): It's probably power-steering fluid. The power-steering system is sealed and shouldn't lose fluid. If it's a light-colored or clear fluid: It may be brake fluid. Even if the leaks have dried, the stains should be visible. Leaky brakes are too dangerous to leave unattended. Have a professional repair any brake fluid leaks immediately.
  • If it smells like rotten eggs: It's battery acid. Avoid getting it on your hands or clothes and have the battery replaced.
  • If it smells like gasoline: It probably is! If the smell is coming from under the hood, check around the fuel pump and the fuel injectors - or the carburetor if your vehicle has one. If the leak seems to be under the center of the vehicle, check the fuel lines. If it's under the rear end, check the fuel tank.

My Sony KDL46Z4100 TV showing reddish on the screen. What is problem?


The time controller ( t-con ) has a defect. There is a small IC called AS15-F which must be replaced. Check the red circle at the upper left corner.

I found pink fluid under my 2004 Prius. What could be the problem?


Does it smell funny? Hard to explain, but transmission fluid has a sort of distinct smell, very "oily" It's usually a reddish or pinkish color. It's darker the older it is typically. If you have noticed that your car is shifting roughly, you could have an auto transmission leak.

Freezer left off for 24 + hours. Found black liquid, not oily on floor on the left side of freezer. Turned back on it is freezing again


If it is not oily then it should NOT be coolant. So you probably don't have a problem other than having some blood residue buildup under the freezer. BUT check you freezer every other day to make sure that it isn't coolant. It you have a coolant leak you will continue to find it until the coolant lines are completely drained which will also fry your compressor.

I have a leak on left side front what could it be?


What kind of leak? Is it a clear liquid like water condinsation coming from the air conditioner?
Or is it grean or reddish like antifreeze? Is your water temp. lite coming on or gauge running hot?
Is it a dark thick liquid like oil or transmission fluid? Have you checked your oil level?
Tell us more about the leak, what does the fluid look like? Is it a lot like a puddle or little drips?
Need as much information as possible
Thanks

Possible plugged AC drain (Chrysler Sebring)


If you are getting clear liquid, with the A/C on, then you have a clogged drain tube. If it is green or reddish, you have a bad heater core. Should be able to have someone blow out the drain tube to clear it out.

Maytag top loader slight leak from bottom left corner


Thank you for responding. Yes we fixed the problem. After taking off the front cover noticed the hose from the liquid bleach dispenser (which I never use) was not connected. Evidently when using the extra large load a little water would splash into the bleach dispenser, hence the small amount at bottom front left corner where dispenser is located. So simple! Glad I didn't pay for someone to attach the hose. Thanks again for your timely response. Lynn
