Hello Harlan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your drain hose is in the back on the right hand side. This is a rubber hose. After a time the rubber may be dry rotted and leak or become partly clogged with soap residue.

Once completing the wash cycle the soapy water may have not completely drained due to a partly clogged drain hose by the time the rinse cycle is complete flooding the washer drain pan.

You do not have water in the bottom of the washer because your pump removed it all, but at a slower rate

Ok, Lets fix this ourselves:

1.) On the bottom right front of your washed is a leveling leg.
turn the leveling leg one full turn clockwise. The right front may be pitched down, causing the drain pan level on this corner to be high. Your washer through vibration may have moved slightly. This is not going to solve the problem.

2.) Pull your washing machine out so you can see the drain hose. Run some laundry on heavy load. Observe to see if your drain hose is leaking. Your hose clamps may be loose and require tightening. If it is leaking it needs to be replaced.

3.) Even if your drain hose is not leaking it must be obstructed, flooding the bottom of your unit. This is easily replaced.

The part number for your drain hose is DC97-12534D. It cast about $24.00.

SOURCE: my samsung wf448aap washer leaves clothes smelling

How much detergent are you using? Try using less detergent and softener in your loads. Too much detergent can leave clothes smelling similar to a wet dog, like you described.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: whirlpool washer leak

Regarding those Cabrio washers that are leaking, while I own the WTW6600 model and have never experienced any leaking, I was told by the service repairman who came out yesterday that there was a flash bulletin sent out by Whirlpool that the fix is in the form of a new inner plastic section. I don't know the technical terms but I saw the bulletin on his computer screen. He mentioned that some people had reported that water was on the left side front of the floor and was being caused by when the water flows through the top section where you pour the liquid detergent, on some models, the water would splash over. He was able to show me the redesigned piece that was being put in to replace those that have the problem. If you are experiencing a problem with water leaking from the unit, and it appears to be in the front, left side area, this could be something covered under that service bulletin.

SOURCE: Will not spin on any rinse cycle

Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

SOURCE: I have a two month old Samsung WF350 front load

I just received my Samsung WD 8804 front loader washing machine, and during the 3rd wash trial, I noticed the same problem of water trickling down from the base of the front door. I took a closer look and the problem is actually due to a cracked rubber seal, which can be seen through the glass door. I have informed the technician.

I have a WF448AAP/XAA washer and is leaking from the bottom, what it be?


Could be the bottom seal of the drum, a leaky hose or the pump that discharges the water out of the drum during rinse cycle. If it seems to leak while filling and/ or operating my bet would be the drum seal.

Frigidarie Stackable Washer and Dryer leak


Check the Drain Tube, Check the Screen. When it gets to the FIRST Spin Cycle, Check the Water Level inside the Drum and see if it is Completely Draining... There is a Water Level Switch that should not be allowing it to Overflow so you may have an issue there... But first check for a Blockage

I have 1996 blazer oil pressure at start is 40 but after it warms up it drops down to 20 ???


Try a higher grade of oil for starters. Check the hydraulic lifters for wear by doing a leak down test. Check the rocker pivots for excessive wear. All these things will help loose oil pressure when the oil gets hot.
