SOURCE: Gushing water - Hoover SPB11 washing machine

First plug off the wall. Before connecting the "hoses" (both hot and cold) to the machine inlets see that the inlet is clean. Connect the outlet hose to the standpipe, not too deep. The outlet hose has to be about 3 feet above ground level; there is a water level mark behind the machine. Both the inlets should be well screwed in, noting the threads of the inlets

You said the water was gushing.....into the machine? Fine .....what next.......post back.

SOURCE: cold water fill is very slow and makes strange sound

check with the plumbing work if that is fine then better take it to the dealer to change the inlet valve. attempting to change by yourself can cause other complications.

SOURCE: My washer is leaking during

On the old ge washers it would do this if the water pressure is not high enough because the fill valve screens are plugged.

SOURCE: water leaks into tub from fill spout when not in

Hello Stacey, W/D here.
Yes, it can be a fill valve, usually called a solenoid valve. The easiest way to determine which one it is would be to close one of the water supply valves to the washer (one of the faucets at the wall). Close it when you have a slight level already in the washer, and watch the level. If the level continues to rise, the water is coming down the opened line, and that solenoid would need to be replaced.
Best regards, --W/D--

Maytag washing machine model a 210 (1982) leaks above filler. how do i get into cabinet to check natureof/cause of leak?


see this cause and fix it:
During fill only
air/gap deformed or crack , replace see the diagram
the rubber tube run between water inlet valve and air gap can cause leak +inlet spout can be crack cause leak replace.
During drain and spin only
inspect main drain hose and fix it. steel or plastic outer rub can be rust,split if this happen you must replace the entire outer tub.

All the time

Water leaks under machine when filling


Hello, if your washer leaks only when filling then you have to 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 tube. If the spout cracks or breaks free of it's mounting, it can cause a leak.
Thanks

Ge tbx18ja there is water coming from BETWEEN the back of the refridgerater and the black elbow plumbing that connects to the hose that runs down to the pan...


I would suggest pulling the black elbow out , and blowing thru it , to clear any possible obstruction . Then , use an adhesive , like super glue or a 3m adhesive product , around the black spout . This spout , inserts into the drain pan outlet tube . After applying the adhesive , reinstall the black spout into the tube , and use duct tape to hold it securely , against the refrig body .

Washing machine leaks water as tank is filling up.


Hi

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.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Leaks water when filling up.


If the washer is leaking only during the fill and not all the time, the problem is most likely caused by a faulty air gap device, a leaking water inlet valve, or the tube. The air gap is a small device that keeps the washwater from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is usually located mid-way or at the end of the black hose that comes from the water inlet valve. Usually it is made of transluscent plastic. Look for leaks or cracks.

The tube is a rubber tube that runs between either the water inlet valve and either the air gap or the inlet spout. Check for leaks.

The water inlet spout - most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the flow of water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free from it's mounting, it can cause leaks.

These are the things to look for if the washer is only leaking during fill. Hope this helps and best wishes.

hi,
there could be many reasons for this, try 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 this develops crack or is deformed, you may develop a leak or blockage.
The tube:There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. there could be blockage or deformation in this tube.

Inlet spout:Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. there could be some blockage in this.

try to find the place till which the water flow is unhindered in the machine.

cheers
