This problem is usually attributed to the door bellow (rubber gray seal) becoming ripped or torn. If you puill back the folds in the rubber and inspect it, you may find a rip or hole in it some where. Another way to tell is by removing the bottom panel under the door and inspect from underneath. It is common for the front counterweight (concrete block) to become wet if the door bellow is leaking. Now, it is normal for these door bellows to wear out and they can be replaced. The following link explains how:

Washer leaking from bottom


If this is a front loader, you can take the front panel off under the door and inspect the bottom of the machine, there is a drain and trap with a large plug and the pump. Both need to be inspected and the drain should be cleaned and the debris removed from the trap. Get ready for lots of water though if you take the cap off the drain.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

My kenmore front loader wont spin fast. it will spin when the clothes are washing slowly but wont spin fast to get rid of the water so clothes stay soaking wet.


Check your drain and make sure it isn't plugged. If ok then remove the bottom panel on the front of the machine. Under it is the washer pump. The pump is either clogged or bad. The washer will not go into a full spin when the water isn't draining properly.

Leak. My wife noticed water leaking out bottom of washer


Try cleaning the drain plug. I did this in about 5 minutes and was amazed at how much debris was clogging up the drain. Mine was accessible by removing two screws at the bottom of washer and removing panel. Drain plug was right there and easy to unscrew. Be sure to have a cookie sheet or other pan to catch the water that will flow out. Once that drain is clear, thumping should stop because water can flow down the drain easily.

Water leaking out of the bottom


Sounds like the main bearing has gone bad and that is causing you to loose water on the floor. There is also a rear seal back there that will need to be replaced

Leak from bottom of LG WM2277HW washer


Diconnect the washer from the power supply.
Look at the back and you will see a few screws holding the top of the machine on.
Undo these screws and lift the top off by sliding it backwards a couple of inches.
You will then see where the leak is coming from(look for white residue).
Please let me know what you find
good luck

Washer leaking from bottom


Take the front panel off of the washer, and run it through a cycle. Watch to see where the leak is coming from. Also, pay attention to the drain in the wall when it is in spin/drain. If this has a blockage in it, it might be backing up causing water to come back out of it.

If you see no leaks the next time you run it, it's possible that it splashed over while spinning because of the off balance load and may not happen again unless it becomes off balance again.
