I am having problems with the connections of my hot water heater. The connection of the cold water to the water tank leaks around the connection. When I tighten it the pipe twisted and it started...


Remember, that COLD water might cause condensation as it nears the Hot Water tank--

However, you seem pretty sure it was leaking-- so-- What type of piping are we working with: Copper, Plastic, or what?

Copper is the best-- but requires soldering fittings-- are you equipped to do that?

Plastic has shrink and expand problems around a Hot Water tank, and might be why you have the leak?

Tell us more, -- how far do you want to get into this?

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.

Leaks water out of bottom


hi friend,
1washingmachine2_thumb.jpg
Evidently you have reason to believe your washer is leaking. Probably there is water on the floor near the machine. Fine, then the first thing is some detective work. with an absorbent hand towel begin to inspect the areas where water enter or leave the washer. Those places are: 1. the hot and cold water inlet hoses located in the back and top of the machine and 2. the washer drain line, located in the back and bottom of the machine.
  • Step 2 One at a time, dry both ends of the hot and cold water hoses. watch for water to bead up. Water may be leaking from more than one place so don't stop with the first leak you find. Inspect all four possible connections and the hose itself. If there is a leak at a hose connection it's an easy fix. shut off the water supply of the leaking hose, unscrew the hose where it leaks and wrap Teflon tape clockwise around the threaded or male part of the connection. inspect the flat rubber washer in the female part of the connection. replace if it seems very worn. re-tighten the connection, dry and turn the water back on. check for the leak to return. If the leak in somewhere on the hose itself you will need to buy a new hose. Hot and cold water hoses are marked.
  • Step 3washingmachine3_thumb.jpg Next we need to check the hose where water drains from the washer. It comes from the washer near the floor level and usually inserts a male into the female of the washer hole. It then moves to the drain leaving the house. Again, dry the entire hose. Then you will have to run the washer. Use flashlight and inspection mirror to help you look for a leak during the draining process. If it leaks at the connection to the washer try reinserting and tightening the retaining screws. There usually are no threads to wrap. If that doesn't fix the leak or if you find a leak in the hose itself you will need to replace it.
  • Step 4 If you still have a leak under the washer it is probably in the drain hose between the drain pump and the outside hose or the short hose between the tub and the drain pump. This may be getting out of your level of competence. But if you want to be a Renaissance Man, give it a try.
    Unplug the machine. Now you need access to the bottom of the machine. depending on your brand you may be able to 1)remove the front by inserting a painters scraper and prying the spring snaps up, 2)remove the back by taking out screws and the rear plate or 3)you may have to go in through the bottom. With help tip it over on it's side. of course the machine will need to be empty of clothes and water as it's heavy enough already.
  • Step 5 However you access the inside bottom of the machine you will see a rubber hose coming down from the tub to a small electric drain pump then a plastic line will leave the pump and go to the back of the machine where it will meet up with the drain line you inspected in step 2. With your inspection mirror and flashlight look for water to indicate a leak. These lines are often held on by metal springs and can be moved or adjusted with open jaw pliers. If you find one of these hoses damaged take it off and bring it with you to your appliance store for a replacement.

    • take digital photos before you remove any part. if you get confused you can use it as reference
    • don't work on the inside of the washer with it plugged in.

    I have a ge washer wpsr3120w0aa that leaks water when rinsing


    Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:


    how-to-repair-a-washing-machine-2.jpg
    ©2006 Publications International, Ltd.
    If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
    valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
    if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

    Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

    Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

    Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

    Troubleshooting Water Leaks

    Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

    Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

    Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

    Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

    Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

    Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

    Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

    Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

    Its the water solenoid. Is it where the hot and cold water connect? Check that the connection is tight and there is a rubber washer inside the hose fitting.

    If this is inside the washing machine and not where the water connects to the machine as above, it sounds more like the water pump.

    A photo would really help.
