  The whole cabinet comes off on this washer.  Too remove you need to remove 2 screws in console.  These may be in back on the right and left ends of console or may be in front on each end.  If you can-not find them they might be hidden under plastic end trim.  They are located in front of console on both ends.  To remove pry them up from the inner lower edge and peel towards outside of washer.  Then remove screws and shake console back and forth while pulling up.  Console will hinge back.
   Remove to gold colored clips with screwdriver prying at front.  Make note of the position of these clips.  Unplug lid switch harness and pivot cabinet back and off.  The usual spot for a leak is the pump.  Check for stain coming from area on pump where motor shaft enters.  The pump can be removed by taking off the 2 clips.  Also check small diameter hose that enters side of wash tub in back side.  Make sure this is attached to tub.

Here is the answer !!! My LG front loader has leaked once a year for the past 4 years. The rubber bellows (a part underneath the washer) cracks and causes the leak. DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE USING TOO MUCH DETERGENT ... THAT JUST AN EXCUSE !!! The part costs around $12. Here's the link ...

Tip the washer onto the front and you will be able to see through the bottom to look for leaks.

Hotpoint Aquarius wm61 trips as soon as its filled with water,if I remove alot of the water it will allow me to spin


If you mean that the machine is tripping the circuit breaker then that is an indication that the water is creating an electrical current path to Earth. The heating element is normally enclosed in a metal sheath but if this is compromised then water will get in and current will then leak to earth, causing the circuit breaker to trip. The heating element can be replaced, but the cause of the damage to the element should also be determined to prevent it happening again. The rotating drum can become partially detached from it's mount and end up hitting the heating element when spinning, causing the element to be damaged. The drum mount (often called a SPIDER) may therefore also need replacing. If you machine was making a lot of knocking noises when in spin cycle then it would certainly indicate a broken mount.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making dripping sound


Mine does same, there is no water on floor or around base of machine in back or sides. Most modern refrigerators have a cycle which uses a heating element to thaw out the coils and the water drips into a pan and naturally evaporates with or without a fan. That is how a defrostless refrigerator works. If the sound is continuous I suspect that there might be an "ice dam" buildup which could be approached by unplugging the machine long enough to allow it to melt or perhaps the heat element might be inadequate.

LG Washing machine leaks from the bottom when large items such as flannel sheets are placed in the machine. It does not leak at any other time but I had water all over the floor twice when I tried to wash...


Water may be working its way up and over the inner wash tub with the larger items. Ensure that you are not overloadinig the washer. You may want to contact an appliance service company.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.

LG WM2688.. water heater not working


No, these heater normally should last a long time.  Are you sure the heating element is bad and not the control board that feeds the power to the element?

Not able to do hot washing


My LG Toploader (wft753a) has a cold and a hot inlet, and the mechanism inside the machine simply turns the flow from each tap on and off. There is no internal heating element in it.
