Washing machine leaks from underneath after rinse cycle...wash cycle runs fine, but when it drains out after rinse cycle, it leaks from underneath

    After further investigation, the water is not leaking out at the rinse cycle after (actually caught it in the act because machine was making a humming sound). The water leaks out as soon as the tub fills with water at beginning of wash cycle. I put the clothes in, chose small load, the water filled the tub and before the wash cycle even started the water began leaking out from bottom of washer. I instantly turned the selector to rinse and the water emptied out.

    Also, all hoses are connected and are not damaged.

I would 1st look to make sure the drain hose is not loose or broken. be sure it is staying in the drain pipe in the wall.it could be a cracked housing on your pump. hope this helps

Maytag clothes washer Model LAT6910AAW. leaks at the last cycle when the rinse water is drained. it may be the drain pump, except it doesn't leak when the wash water is drained (2nd cycle)


If your machine has a tray that you put softener in, softener is the last thing added at rinse time. If it is plugged or has a leaking supply hose, this would cause water paddles and appear to be related to the drain cycle.

My Zanussi WJD 1257 washer/dryer's drying cycle has started finishing early. No error codes. The wash cycle works fine but the drying cycle is simply stopping prematurely. You can set it to dry for 45...


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Washing machine is leaking on wash/rinse cycle. Hoses and plumbing is fine.


Check the soap tray for cracks etc & the input from that to the outer drum. Also seal to door.
To isolate the leak look underneath- is it at the front or rear or side etc.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Washing machine


check for blockage in the pump/drainage system. The drain hose has height specifications that should be followed, incorrect drainage may cause the water to build pressure and not evacuate properly.

Freezer before Rinse


you hav'nt said if it drains. the problem just may be that you have plumbed drain hose onto a spigot on the sink drain and spigot is blanked off
