Zanussi front loader leaking

I have a front loader that is leaking underneath. Prior to this leak the waste pipe was blocked and I cleaned out the waste pipe successfully. Everything seemd ok and the machine was working well. I've just been away and then used the machine for about 4 back-to-back washes and I've since use water softener. I noticed a small amount of water under neath. I used it again today (after checking the waste pipe thoroughly) but the leak is even worse. The leak has grey residue/sediment in it. I opened the pump cover and removed some hard grey limescale from it.

Most likely you have a pump shaft seal leaking you can buy a new pump at this site. You may remove the pump and clean with pool muratic acid, but it is very caustic you would have to put pump in the acid bath in a metal pan that you don't mind using it and it will eat all the organic buildup from the pump. However it may leak worse as the organic material may keep it from leaking too much. So I suggest you use the pump, if you use mueratic acid it is highly toxic so read directions on using it and were air mask and rubber gloves while using it then rinse off with clean water. You should put water hose in the drain pipe and tunrn on the water to test the drain pipe as well. this will make sure the drain pipe is fine. Look at the hoses near the clamps as this is where holes develop on the water pump hoses.

My zanussi us leaking water as soon as it starts to fill. I've cleaned the pump and detergent door but no help. It's leaking from underneath somewhere


It sounds like there may be a split in the fill hose! Go to the Zanussi web sit and you should be able to buy one for a few £££. Take the top and back off your machine and you should see the hose if you follow the pipe where the water connects.

I have just fixed this as below - your leak may be easier to see if you turn the machine on its front - there is a rear valve with a rubber bung and underneath a rubber pipe with a metal clip - check both for leaks - http://www.fixya.com/support/t4079509-full_water_indicator_lit_continuously

Leaking water


Your waste pump might not be clearing the water from the machine. When you open the machine, is there a visible pool of water at the bottom? Check that your waste pipe isn't blocked, and check and clean the filter basket underneath the bottom dish tray.

I have a Zanussi Fitted dishwasher and I notice that the board under my kitchen seems to be getting black,I think it is the dishwasher leaking water from underneath.. Is there any common problems with this...


Yes sounds like some kind of water leak. Take of the front plinth and check underneath the units and DW. I presume you DW is adjacent to the sink so please cheak all pipes including waste asap. Also opening the DW door whilst it is running can splash water, over a period of time this could effect wood material and cause your problem.

Washer front loader


Check the drain hose, and inspect the filter for any foreign object.


I report :"E20 means your fluff filter / waste pipe is getting blocked and themachine cannot pump out the water. Try unblocking the fluff filterfirst at the bottom of the machine. This should work, if the faultappears again though and the fluff filter is clean your waste pipe isblocked and you need to flush this through. Can you tell what I've justspent my weekend doing, I have had to get the most unbelievable amountof limescale out of these 2 areas but machine is now working fine again."

Miele washing machine model W713 front load - issues


If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump
