Washer leaks but onlyu during drying cycle


the main drama i have with these lg washer/dryers is the drying vent blocks up with lint which causes excess heat build up around the heater and it often results in a small hole melting through the front tub under the heater vent where it joins to the plastic tub, it also results in water leaking out the melted hole when it dries but not during the wash as the hole is at the top of the tub, parts are relatively cheap for what they are but its a massive job to replace the front tub.

We have a water leak coming from beneath our machine . Fault reports = 'OE'. what is the problem?


OE is really DE = Drain Error. This should have nothing to do with your water leak.
For the DE code, open the access panel on the lower left on front of the washer. Drain the last of the water out of the machine using the small hose found there, then unscrew the big knob next to the hose and remove. Clean out this filter. If nothing is in the filter, replace pump motor.
The most common source of a water leak is a small hole in the gray tub gasket at the door opening. Examine it very closely, looking for rubbed spots which may have developed a hole.

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL DUET WASHER THAT LEAKS WATER ON THE FLOOR FROM THE LEFT OF MACHINE. THIS HAPPENS ABOUT 1 IN 10 WASHES.


You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to gain access to the inside cabinet to see where the leak may be coming from. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the washer up with something (a 2x4 works well for this) will give you better access to the screws.

The most common source of leakage on this washer is the rubber bellow around the door. It can develop cracks or tears over time and require replacement. A tell-tale sign is the front counterweight (looks like a concrete block on the front of the wash tub) looking wet. The counterweight will remain dry if the tub is sealed properly. From the inside of the washer, pull the rubber folds back on the door bellow and inspect the perimeter for any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385211-replacing_door_bellow_whirlpool_duet

If the bellow is intact, check the rear bellow seal where it connects to the front of the wash tub. If the clamp comes loose the bellow can shift and begin to leak. Tighten if necessary.

Check the drain pump and hoses to ensure they are not leaking. The drain pump is directly in the front under the wash tub.

Check the area directly below the wash tub. If the leak is coming from the wash tub iteself, you may have a bad tub seal. A replacement gasket doesn't cost much at all, but the labor involved is extensive.
Check the air dome on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. There should be a small air hose attached that runs all the way to the pressure switch. This small air hose is how the pressure switch senses the pressure differential in the wash tub and determines when to shut the water off. If the air hose comes loose, water will pour out of the air dome into the cabinet bottom. Reattach if necessary.

Another simple problem is the dispenser tube(s) that come through the door bellow. Sometimes, these small tubes will work their way behind the rubber in the door and leak when the washer attempts to fill or rinse. This is a simple matter of adjusting the tubes to ensure they are seated through the door gasket properly.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: You can refer to searspartsdirect.com for some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer for reference in locating components.

Water leak


Remove the lower panel under the washer door and inspect the interior. The panel is removed by loosening and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the following areas:

- Check all hoses for leaks, cracks, holes and loose connections. Check the seal where the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub connects to the intake of the drain pump. Make sure the drain hose from the pump to the standpipe is connected snug to the pump and is not leaking.
- Check the drain pump to ensure it is not leaking. The clean out reservoir cap (if not fitted properly) can leak around the seal.
- Check the door bellow (gray rubber boot) to ensure it is not leaking. HINT: A tale-tell sign of bellow leakage is wetness showing up on the front washer counterweight. This is a concrete block mounted to the front of the wash tub. It is not supposed to be wet.
- Check the pressure switch air hose to ensure it is connected to the air dome on the side of the wash tub. This is a small rubber hose that runs from the pressure switch in the top left rear of the washer (viewed from the back, with the washer top panel removed) to the bottom right hand side of the wash tub. However, if this hose were to come off the air dome fitting, the wash tub would continously try to fill and water would begin to pour from the bottom of the wash tub. If this does not sound like your symptoms, disregard this step.
- Check the seam where the wash tub shells meet. There is a rubber tub gasket that seals the two tub halves together. If the seal is bad, water will begin to collect and drip along this seam.
- Check the tub for cracks. This is NOT common, but it can happen.

The following link explains the step-by-step process of checking and cleaning the drain pump:

I mention this link, because it gives you some guidance on how to access the pump and how avoid the possible mess involved with water pouring out of the pump.

If you discover the door bellow as the the cause for your leak, please refer to this link:

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...

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.
