SOURCE: Water leaking

I guess it was water from drain lines, or leak from water lines.

SOURCE: Water leaking out of frigidaire

First, have you drained the tank recently. If not, the warning light or auto shutoff failed and the tank may be overflowing. Worse case scenario is the that the tank is dirty and is not allowing the coils to cool and the dripping water you see is from the cooling coils. Since the tank is not removable, it's very difficult, at best to clean the tank.

If you drain the tank and before reinserting the drain plug, try to get about 1/2 teaspoon of bleach in the drain hole. followed by 2 cups of water. Of course you'll have to use a funnel of sort to do this. Reinstall the drain plug and move the unit around so the water and bleach will slosh around. Then run the unit until the bucket is near full again and drain it thoroughly. Look at the color of water draining out, for an indication that there is dirty water. That will be a good indication, that some cleaning of the tank has taken place.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Elite he 3t front loader. Why does it leak water at beginning of rinse and spin cycle only?

Is it leaking from the tray top left corner? Mine was because it was not level. IT was level left to right but not front to back. The front was lower than the back. Raised both front feet, no more leaking.

KENMORE WASHER 110.267.91690 pump leaks. Can I

If you are mechanically inclined and have a few basic tools, Yes you can. I have instructions for you and this link will take you to Sears website for drawings and parts direct.

Disconnect the power cord. Turn off the water. There are two clips, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place. 1. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. From the front push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner of the control panel . You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring clip releases the control panel corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back. Do not force, some models have screws in the back top corner of the panel check this before rolling panel over the top. 3. Unplug the wire that connects the control panel to the top of the case. Stop here and take note as to how the case connects to the back panel. There is an aligner there that will be your hardest part to deal with later. This will help when reassembling. 4. OK, Put a slotted screw driver into the front of the clips at the back corners on the top and release them, once again take note to their positioning. The outer case hooks under the front of the frame and the sides have a slot that goes over a pin near the back of the frame side. (Front under, sides on top of frame)Tilt the case up on back and pull forward. Congrats you are there. The pump is the most forward part in the bottom of the case. There are two clips attaching the pump to the machine. Carefully release them with a flat blade screwdriver. There are two hoses attached to the pump and can be reused with the new pump. Be prepared to catch residual water left in the hoses from the last run. Unless you had a pump leak then they are probably empty. But best to be prepared. Allow 30 to 45 minutes for the first removal.
If the link does not work, an exploded view of your machine is available at under the parts direct tab enter your model number, found under the lid at the back of the tub opening. Copy and paste model number if needed.
If you have any questions, I am here at least onc a day. Good luck.

Leaks at bottom lefthand corner when filling

On that model it's easy to unscrew the front and take it off. You can then see the hoses etc to see where the water is coming from. I had to replace the drain hose on mine.
