Re: leaks

Possible the leak comes from under the tub. Remove the wall plug & take off the rear panel. Check to see if the hose from the under the tub is secure, it could be the grip clip below the hose has come off. This is where it connects to the pump section. You need a grip plier or something to get it back on securely. If this is not the case take a good look to see where the leak comes from.

Next is the door gasket, maybe a tear.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound

With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

I have a Miele W4840 front load washer and there is water leaking from the door. I've checked the seal and it doesn't seem to be damaged, but there is a definite leak. Please advise.

first make sure your detergent drawer is not popping open. water will run out from beneath the drawer, run over to the top of the door, run down the door, and then straight down to the floor. If you are not leaking out of the detergent drawer, the next thing down is the bottom of the glass door. look at the glass where it contacts the door seal at the bottom. It should be clean and smooth. Most likely you will find lint, hair, and soap residue. that needs to be cleaned off. any surface imperfections will cause a slow drip or trickle of water to come out of the lowest part of the door. If that is fine, and it is still leaking, open the cover to the drain pump on the bottom right of the front of the machine. Make sure that drain pump filter is tight. run the machine with that little drain access door open and see if you are leaking from there. If none of the above helps, and you are still getting water leaking from the door, miele has designed a new clamping ring for the door seal. Call them and make arrangements to have it replaced.

My whirpool duet washing machine is locked. The cycle doesn't get completed and indicates F02. We tried to unplug it, change ccyle and numerous times the pause-cancel button. How do I just get to...

The F/02 error indicates that your washing machine is not draining properly and thus taking too long to drain the water:
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • With Power OFF: Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects: make sure you empty the washing machine water via the hose next to the pump filter cover first without flooding your floor! Incidentally, draining all the water will unlock the door.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, you will need to get the pump replaced.
Hope the information is useful: let me know how you go!

Intermittent water on floor

Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

Machine locked up. Barrel quit spinning.

first you got to empty washer by manual,get a bowl on to the floor then pull the drain pipe out of the pipe that goes outside or from under the sink,empty washer this way then the door will open,as it wont open as a result of it having water in it,when you have done this make sure you check your motor bushes,im sure that they have worn,just replace them at a cost of £10.00,they are easy to replace.rgrds paul

GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vertical Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads

it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

Its most likely the tub seal at the bottom, check and see if the area inside is wet in the middle. You will need to remove the outer panels to do this. It doesn't sound like anything else if the water was left to sit so a replacement of the seals around the center shaft should fix this problem. Let me know if you have any questions about doing this and I would be happy to help.

Water in my washing machine

it sounds like you have a leaking water valve, you will have to replace the mixing valve, For now turn the water off at the wall suppling water to the machine. When you want to use the washer turn on water, when its done with the cycle turn the water off.

Note: unplugging the machine will not stop the water from running
