See if you can adjust the clamps
Get yourself a light and clean everything around hose so you can see where the leak is coming from. Sometimes the pump will spray the water and looks as the hose.

Leaking water from bottom


Hello there:
If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. 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. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 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 need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub-

Water is coming from under the washing machine not out of the hoses, where could it come from?


There might be two possible reason for that.

it might be coming form the tub itself passing through the rubber seal of your plastic rotator(the big wheel inside the tub)

the other thing is in the junction of the hose the tub.

try to open the back of your washing macjine where you can get an access inside the wheel and the junction connector, from there you will the cause of the leackage. try to put some water while looking at so you can see where the water is coming out

My LG wm model WD-1050F is out of use now because


The burning smell is coming from the burned out motor windings. The terrible internal sound is coming from a worn out bearing or friction caused by the motor rotor scraping the stator. These caused the motor windings to burn. Replace the motor then.

If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
  • Water inlet valve: If water drips even when the washer is off,check the water inlet valve. It is located inside the washer at the back of the unit. The fill hoses are attached to it. Replace if deemed necessary.
  • Water fill hoses: Check the water hoses from the household plumbing. Tighten it or replace it as necessary..
  • Main tub seal: It is located between the transmission and the outer tub. To see the leak, fill the machine with water with small amount of detergent then open up the machine's main access panel.. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. The seal is difficult to replace and you probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
  • Pump: You can spot the leak when the tub is full of water if the pump leaks. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. Replace it as necessary if it leaks.
  • Outer tub: The outer tub can rust, split, or be punctured.You may have to replace the entire tub but its not economical repair to do. Consult a qualified technician for deatils.
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
  1. Air-gap device: It is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. It is usually made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you have to replace it.
  2. The tube: It is a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
  3. Inlet spout: It is a plastic spout found on most washers near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

Washing machine leaking


This is called the "drain hose" or "discharge hose" -- it connects to the outlet port on the water pump.

Water leaking from bottom of front lode washing machine


It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

Whirlpool Cabrio Leaks Water


Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!

Model WM2277HW leaks


Leaks from the bottom of the machine are usually related to a sump issue.

You will have to remove the rear panel from your machine to see leak happening. Do not reach into the back of the machine while it is powered if possible. Be extremely careful.

The rear panel is held on by 4 screws, with these removed the panel will pull away from the back of the machine.

With great care you will need to start the machine to observe where the leak is coming from.

At the very bottom of the machine is a black rubber tube that attaches to the bottom of the tub. It splits and goes forward towards the drain pump & filter unit and it also goes towards the back of the machine and attaches to a white air chamber which connects to the fill switch via a long black rubber tube.

Leaks will usually occur in the rubber sump hose; at the air chamber; at the pump connection or pump; or in the drain hose. Careful inspection of these points should reveal its location.

Leaks coming from the tub area can either be a center tub seal or from the inlet water at the top of the machine traveling down along the tub.

Further clarification of the leak location is needed for further diagnosis

Amana washer leaking.


Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.
