Water leaks out of bottom of washer

When my washer fills with water, all of the water leaks out the bottom. Prior to this problem, I'd noticed a screw that was wedged into the small holes at the bottom of the basket, so I yanked the screw out. I think the screw fell out of my husband's pants pockets during the last wash. Is it possible that the screw punctured a hole somehow, which is causing all of the water to leak out?!

The screw in the washer tub, is not a factor in this. I'm not sure what brand of machine you have, but several machines have a fill hose that connects to the outer tub of the machine. Sometimes when a machine gets loaded heavily, during the spin cycle items in the machine can actually knock the fill hose right out of the tub. Then when the machine trys to fill the next time, all the water runs down the outside of the tub and leaks out of the bottom of the machine.
Repair is to open up the machine. You'll need to remove the top cover and that will give you access to the hose/tub connection. It may be as simple as reinserting the hose back into the drum or you may need to replace it if it got too damaged and won't stay in the hole correctly.
If you need specific how to's on opening up the machine, get back to us with the make and model info and we'll be happy to help you open that washer up!

My whirlpool just started leaking from the bottom of machine onto the floor. This happens when the machine is OFF and no clothes in machine. Is it a switch


The drain hose has to be higher than the water level at its highest point. IF there is water coming into the machine when it is not running then you may have a bad water inlet valve. They develop leaks like any faucet or valve. It could be some other things too, like the voltage to the valves is not completely cutting off. There is also some water that stays in those machines because it cannot all be pumped out. What is the model number?

Washer won't fill with water


Hi Allen, this is JK. I see that you are having trouble with your washer (FEX831CS) not spinning or filling with water. For the washer not spinning, check the drain hose length and make sure there are no restrictions. The concern could be with the timer or the drain pump. For the washer not filling, I would check the water pressure, pressure switch and the water inlet valve. If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect.

Leak. My wife noticed water leaking out bottom of washer


Try cleaning the drain plug. I did this in about 5 minutes and was amazed at how much debris was clogging up the drain. Mine was accessible by removing two screws at the bottom of washer and removing panel. Drain plug was right there and easy to unscrew. Be sure to have a cookie sheet or other pan to catch the water that will flow out. Once that drain is clear, thumping should stop because water can flow down the drain easily.

Water leaking from bottom


Replace water pump. Common problem. Unscrew the control panel ,two screws on each end. Flip control panel over and unsnap gold brackets from base to the back. Lift up housing and disconnect lid switch, remove housing. The water pump is in the front lower that has two hoses , disconnect hoses and unsnap pump. My sister fixed hers in about 25 minutes.

Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water


There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.
