Washing machine is leaking
Washing machine leaks are very common. There are many places a washing
machine can leak from although most leaks come from the same few places.
The most common cause for a leaking washing machine is the door seal.
Door seals often get holes in them and water leaks down the inside of
the washing machine which then runs out under the front. Water leaking
down the front of the washing machine from the door can be caused by a
worn door seal (the flange part that the door glass presses against when
closed) or something trapped between the door seal and the door glass
which breaks the seal. If the door seal doesn't look worn, or it's too
young to be worn, then try cleaning the door seal's flange and the door
glass on the inside of the door. Bits of cotton, un dissolved washing
machine detergent etc can cause a leak.
Soap dispenser leaks
The next most common cause of a leaking washing machine is the soap dispenser.
Leaking water from a soap dispenser is often caused by a blockage, or
water pressure that is simply too high. Despite seeing many leaking soap
dispensers, I've never seen a soap drawer with a seal, they just rely
on water not getting to the front which is not really good enough. Some
Hoover soap dispensers in particular, are renowned for leaking, and over
the years Hoover have had to introduce modified soap dispensers twice.
Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when
a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) Indesit, and
Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from
this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right
at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose
wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent
through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water
flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also
be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does
it when spinning)
Finally, black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water
to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer
and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge,
blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme
cases I've had to replace the dispenser.
Tips for finding a leak on a washing machine
- If you have a leaking washing machine, and you can't see where it's
coming from, shove some newspaper underneath the washing machine. The
slightest drop will give a clue where the water is leaking from. Pull
the sheet out regularly to check for water leaks.
- Water can run round things and drip onto other parts. Be careful with
your diagnosis, as water dripping from a hose at the bottom could actually
be leaking from somewhere else higher up.
- Leaks usually leave marks, so it's possible to see something is leaking
even without witnessing it. The soap suds that come out with the leaking
water leave white trails. Rust is a good indicator of a water leak too.
However, if you have had a previous leak cured, the "evidence"
of a leak may still be present so be sure you don't blame a part that
was repaired in the past.
- If the washing machine leaks only at the end of the wash, when water
is being pumped out. Make sure water isn't backing up and cascading
over the top of a blocked drain pipe in the plumbing.
- WARNING: Don't get electrocuted trying to witness a leak. It's dangerous
running the washing machine with the top or back off.
