Water leaking on floor? How to fix


Depending on how old the unit is will depend on where to look for the leak. You have an incoming water line, a motor (with an impeller) and a discharge hose. First look at the hoses, motor assembly and areas under the washer tub for tell tale signs of leaking. Look for staining, usually a line like white powder will lead you to the leak. If none is found, start with the incoming line; first look at the valve that feeds the dishwasher, see if that is leaking. if it is, it will have to be replaced. Look at the feed hose to the dishwasher and see if it is brittle and cracked, if it is, replace it.Look at the discharge hose for brittleness and cracking as well, also check the connections to insure they are tight. If the hoses are found to be in good shape then look at the motor. There is a gasket that is in between the motor housing and the washer, see if it is leaking if so, replace it. You will have to remove the dishwasher to access the motor so be prepared to spend some time to complete this. Good luck and I hope it is just a hose issue.

Leaking water from the hose connections


Had the same problem w/the water inlet w/initial installation. When the water inlet was hooked to the faucet and into the washer, water leaked on the washer end. The manual tells you to put a new "flat" washer (provided) in the washer machine water inlet, but water still leaked. It's actually the not flat washer, it's more of an "U" shape washer that goes into the washer machine water inlet and fits right over the filter in the water inlet valve. Leak was solved, but faucet was on and water was not filling in the drum. Turn power on, select cycle, water level, and press start and water should start filling the drum.

WATER LEAKING FROM UNDER


Pull the machine away from the wall enough to get to the 3 hoses on the back. Make sure they are all tight. Two will be for hot and cold water and will have a regular threaded connection that can be tightened with a pair of pliers or pipe wrench (tighten both the washer side, and the wall side). The third is the dirty water discharge and will most likely have a worm-gear clamp that can be tightened with a screw driver. After tightening them all, run another load and watch all the connections for any other signs of leaking.

If tightening them doesn't fix the leak then you should replace the gaskets on the two threaded connections. You can get replacements at your local hardware store. Make sure you turn off the water with the valves on the wall before removing the hot/cold water hoses or you will make a big mess.

Water coming into humidifier has recently begun to leak out from connection to the discharge tube.


THE WATER CONNECTION TO THE INPUT OF THE HUMIDIFIER IS LEAKING? - -IF THIS IS THE CASE, SHUT OF THE WATER SUPPLY TO THE HUMIDFIER, UN-SCREW THE INPUT CONNECTION, USING SOME PLUMBING WHITE CONNECTION TAPE, WRAP A COUPLE OF TURNS UNTO THE THREADS, RE-CONNECT AND TURN ON THE WATER SUPPLY. IT SHOULD STOP LEAKING.
IF ITS THE OUTPUT OF THE HUMIDIFIER OR DISCHARGE TUBE, THIS IS NOT UNDER ANY WATER PRESSURE LIKE THE INPUT IS, AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE HOSE MAY BEJUST LOOSE OR CRACKED AT THE HUMIDIFIER. CUT OFF THE HOSE AND RE-ATTACHING WILL WORK OR MAY EVEN NEED A NEW HOSE.

I unclogged the GD by removing the pipes underneath and replaced them tightly. GD seems to be working fine now, but water is slowly leaking from underneath the GD! It appears to be leaking from the...


The leak comes from above where water comes out.

Turn off power before touching wet electrical appliance.

Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
Check if water is getting through the putty seal at sink connection.

Next, check if water leaks only when dishwasher runs. Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.

Last, check tailpiece where it attaches to side of garbage disposal. The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber washer. When washer is old, it gets deformed, and then it doesn't seal perfectly when put back.

I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
It is gooey and sticky.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then assemble pipes.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.

Washer is leaking


sounds like you have a hose problem. are the hot and cold water hose connections tight? they may need new washers. if that is the problem turn off water valves,disconnect hoses and replace them with garden hose washers from any hardware store. re-tighten them snugly. just tight enough so they don't leak. if it only leaks while draining, replace the short hoses connected to the pump,located inside bottom of inside of washer.

Water leaking from under washer


Hi

You'll need to open the machine and check for the leaks in the hose connected to the drain pump. Also check if the clamp connecting the drain filter and hose is tight. Also check these things for leaks---

Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.

Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you'll need to replace it.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Washer is leaking while it is just setting still.


The first thing that I would check, is the hot & cold water hoses, that connect in the back of the washer, to see if they are tight. If they are tight and still leaking from there, then the rubber washer, inside the brass fitting part needs replaced. If that doesn't help, then disconnect the power, and water hoses, then turn the washer over and check the water hose underneath, to see if its leaking. One of these hoses has to be the problem.
