I have a kenmore HE 2t washing machine. It is leaking out the bottom of the front loading door, especially on the delicate cycle. The gasket and door seem to be fine.


Do check the rubber door seal again.

Often you can get a few months' extra life out of the door seal by removing it and replacing it upside down, if it will fit.

LG front loading washing machine. SEVERE water leak from front door. Gasket has been checked and is OK. Seems there is quite a bit of 'play' (i.e. slack or free movement) in the front door since if you...


This is a very common problem with the LG front loaders, and some other front loaders for that manner. There was a few recalls on them and some parts that were supposed to fix the issue. Even if the gasket looks ok i would replace it, as they have updated the design of the gaskets to fix issues on models that were having issues leaking. Most of the time its just a bad gasket and you cant really do anything other then replace it. Front load washers are about the worst appliance made today in my opinion, the repair shops around here are always full of broken and leaking front loaders. I have fixed quite a few myself, some work ok after the repair, some fail again in a matter of months, its a real duck shoot on them. The biggest failure rate though is the gaskets! And most of the time they look ok but still leak like a screen door.

I have a Frigidaire Gallaxy Series top loading washing machine, 4 years old that seems to be leaking from the bottom. Is this something I can fix myself? THANK YOU.


Before you buy a new $100 door gasket, pull out the soap dispenser tray and look inside the washer where it normally sits. If there is significant soap accumulation (even 3/8 inch), the water can become backed up and trickle down the washer front to the door bottom, making it look like a door leak. Fixed mine this way.

Water leaking out of door , seems like it might be a problem with the door hinge ?


Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.

Whirlpool Front Loading Door leaking water


The most common cause for a front loading washer to leak from the front door is a torn or detached gasket where that gasket attached to the machine.
Open the door and begin to pull the gasket away from the opening. Look for any problems. If you find a place where the gasket is not firmly secured to the opening, you can list that area up and glue (even with super glue) the gasket back down to the metal opening.
If you find gasket damage, it will need to be replaced.

Leak in bottom of machine


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. You should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).


Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.


An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
