You need a good pair of grip pliers for the job. Release the grip, push further into pipe, fit pipe maximum into connection, grip clip again & clamp it over the rubber & connection. A proper grip plier is the key........

Leaking washing machine

Need more information. What type of leak (fast, slow, seep, etc.), when does it leak (when it is filling, draining, all the time, or don't know), and where is the leak coming from? If water runs out as fast as it is filling, you may have a drain hose that is ruptured or has disconnected. If it is a very slow leak, you may have a connection that is working loose. Or, it could be as serious as a hole in the outer drum. Is this a top loader or a front loader washing machine?

I have an 8 year old top loading Amana washing machine with a stainless steel tub. Water drips out of the bottom of the machine. It does not appear to be leaking from any of the external connection,...

It might be the drain hose coming from the drum . Might have come loose. This does happen. And i would repair it before it comes off totally. These machines are pretty easy to repair. The top is hinged in the back so you will need a screw drver to pry the top open and you will see a bolt on both sides of the front panel once those are off lift the front upward and it should come off. You will see all the internal components most of them. Check all the hose and if so run the machine and trace the leak. But never poke around while it is running. When you find the leak? repair it. You can use automotive radiator hose clamps to replace the Factory spring junk clamps.
Hope this helps.

Water won't drain away - how do we get to the punp to unblock it please? Nothing in manual to help. Thank you, Jenny

Jenny, you did not list a brand so we are unable to help 100%

Most access is from the rear panel, but often easier to access by turning machine on its side and coming in from the bottom. Follow the hose from the outlet to the pump and undo the clamps on in and out as blockages occur on both sides. After removal of any matter in the pipes, flush hoses from both ends to ensure flow. Connect inlet hose to pump and run some water through pump with drain hose disconnected to ensure pump is also clean. replace outlet hose and make sure clamps are done up tight otherwise they will leak.
Stand machine back upright and test.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Cold water fill is super slow

Do this:

1. Un-plug the washing machine

2. Shut off the cold water supply valve to the machine and then disconnect the cold water hose at the machine. Place a small container under the fitting when you do this to catch the water that will probably leak out.

3. Place the disconnected end of the hose in a bucket or the sink if you have one and SLOWLY turn the cold water back on. make sure the water pressure coming out of the hose is good. If so, the problem isn't there. Turn the valve back off.

4. Set the disconnected hose aside. Take a good look at the connection on the machine (where you disconnected the hose). There should be an inlet screen. It's common for these screens to plug up once in a while, especially if you are on well water. Remove the screen and clean it, being careful to not lose the washer. The screen can be rinsed out in a sink. Look for any other debris that may be in this connection.

5. Re-install the screen, re-install, the hose, turn the water back on slowly, and check for leaks. Plug the machine back in.

6. Try filling the machine again with the washer empty, just in case some muck also comes out so you don't stain your clothes.

7. If it works ok, you're done. If not, then the water fill valve itself may not be working properly and may need to be replaced.

8. A weak electrical connection to the fill valve can also cause this condition, but it's usually the inlet screen.

Good Luck and re-post if you have further questions!

Drain hose seal leak on Kenmore washer

Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.

Water coming from bottom of machine

If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.

Open up behind, after taking off the wall power plug. Check to see it the hose from underneath the tub is loose, tighten. Or replace hose if damaged.
