SOURCE: Water gushes out of the inside of my Karcher jet washer.

you can sometimes seal the water leak from the inside as I think your water inlet case has split

SOURCE: Duet 9150 washer collecting water

The problem is more than likely your water inlet valve. The water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) is located in the rear of the washer where the fill hoses attach. There is a separate solenoid for the hot and cold water. These two valves are controlled electronically, but the small diaphragm that controls the water turning on and off can become clogged with sediment, or the solenoid can stop working, causing it to not close properly when not in use. With the diaphragm stuck open, the water will leak by and fill the drum over time, causing the problem you are describing.

Long story, can attempt to remove the water inlet valve and clean it with some distilled vinegar and water solution. Or, you can simply replace it with a new one. In either case, you will need to access it and remove it from the washer. The following steps explain how:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Turn off the water supply and remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
4. The water inlet valve is in the rear of the washer on the left hand side (as viewed from the front). Remove the water dispenser hose and disconnect the electrical connections.
5. Loosen the mounting screw(s) that hold the valve in place and remove.

You can attempt to clean the assembly in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water by allowing it to soak for about a 30 minutes. Mix a solution in a container and submerge the valve portion only, leaving the electrical contacts dry. After 30 minutes flush with warm water water. Sometimes this works, sometimes the valve needs replaced. In my own personal opinion, if you're going to go the route of removing the valve, you might be better off to replace it to save yourself from having to repeat these steps twice.

Replacements can be purchased on line at,,, or All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best price. I hope this helps you.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

NOTE: I would recommend you turn the water supply off while not in use until you can resolve the problem. This will prevent the tub from filling.

My front loading LG washer is not draining. Water gushing from under door.

No draining is most likely the pump motor. Washer door not closing tightly is rusty hinge most likely. What's the model number? Post photos if you can.

When I start the washer, it fills just fine with no problems but once it starts the cycle, it gushes water from the bottom of the door

Check the bottom of the plastic inner door. If there is a crack or a gouge, have it replaced. Also check the rubber door boot for holes above the water line

Kenmore washer 600 series model 11027642600

Could be bad hose, valve or seal in the washer (this was listed under dryers). Requires taking the washer out of service and looking for source of the leaks. Hose, valve or connectors is more likely than a seal if water is gushing.

Hotpoint Ultima WT965 - Water gushing out from door and soap drawer

you have a blocked filter, unplug from mains, take off back panel you will see a black sump hose coming from the tub to the pump, tilt the machine forward and put a dish or bowl under sump unscrew clamp and pull off slowly to release any water in the drum. You will find a blockage, also what appears to be a ping pong ball dont throw away it is meant to be there.
