When the water level reaches the 4th row of holes from the bottom, water starts leaking out from underneath. I checked the hoses which are tight. Any suggestions?

    The plot thickens. My wife just got home from work and told me that the washer was overflowing with water this morning but the washer was not running. So the water flowed all night.

    if water is filling up tub while machine is off, means electronic valve is leaking/not working,you could turn off water supply when not using to solve that. but it is unrelated to yout first problem. seems you now have multiple problems.

My 1990 honda accord is leaking out water from underneath it and also dries out water from the radiator and when i put water it boils up. What might be the issue


Your water pump may have failed, or your radiator hose may have a crack or pin hole. The best way to find out is to first fill your radiator, then run the car for about 5 to 10 minutes, then shut the car off and look underneath. First at the water pump. There is a small hole on the bottom of the pump, just behind the pully (this is called the wheep hole) If water is "wheeping" from this hole then your water pump is bad, if not do a visual check on your bottom and top radiator hoses to see if there is a problem with either of them. You may also want to inspect your radiator itself for leaks as well. You could have a cracked radiator.

Antifreeze leaking underneath front of motor


You will need to locate your water pump. There is a small hole on the bottom of the water pump. If antifreeze is dripping out of this hole it is time to replace. You can also make sure all hose connections are tight.

We have a hotpoint RLA 34 ( MICROBAN ) FRIDGE . water keeps seeping into the bottom , under the crisper box tried turnining temp down , made sure it's level , no blocked drainage hole . door shuts tight...


You said no blocked drainage hole, where was the drainage hole that you checked located? Did you pour water down this drain, and furthermore did you check that the water you poured into the drain flowed into the condensate pan on the outside of the fridge? Unless you have a problem with an ice maker leaking water, it sounds very much like you do have a blocked drainage hole, otherwise known as a defrost drain. the drain system begins underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer, this is where the water that is collected in the defrost cycle flows into a drain tube that leads the water down to the condensate pan. The best and safest way to clear out this drain is to blow it out with compressed air, after you remove any and all ice at the beginning of the drainage system, in other words, the hole located underneath the evaporator coil.

Whirlpool duet washer leaking badly. when it starts filling water rushes out of the detergent dispenser and the bottom of the door.


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Leak when water is filling up with water


First thing to check is the discharge pump inlet hose from underneath the tub to the pump. This frequently vibrates loose enough to allow water to leak out as tub water level increases. Also, this hose may have rubbed against something for some time and developed a hole at the rub point, resulting in a leak. If you are good with a tire patch, you might be able to seal the hole and avoid the cost of a new hose. Make sure the hose is insulated from or pulled away from the rub point to avoid a recurrence of the leak later.

The next most frequent leak point is at the mixing valve at the water inlet where the hot and cold water is channeled into the tub fill. Loose connections or a cracked valve housing will leak water.

Check water valve may not be shutting off .
Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

About 1 minute into the cycle water starts running out from underneath of the washer. Checked all the hoses that are connected to the back and none are leaking


this is either the front seal that goes from the outer tub to the front of the washer or a hole in the outer tub itself or one of the hoses underneath the seal and the hoses are easiest to check you can take a cup of water and slowly pour it into the front seal. take care not to overfill it to where it spills into the tub and see if you are getting water on your floor from that. the hoses tip the washer up onto its back and look at them from the bottom for any cracking etc. the tub itself can only rust out on some of the neptune models or on others is plastic and can get punctured. just have to look for damage with a light and a mirror.

Water Leaks from beneath my washing machine


Our WM2077CW just started the water leaking from underneath. We unplugged the electrical cord and disconnected the hoses (water, drain). We then removed the inspection plate from the back and checked for wet hoses. The big black hose on the bottom was a little wet. On careful examination we found a small hole that looked like a material fatigue failure at the point where the accordion part of the hose met with the solid part of the hose near the main drum connection. I suspect this is may occur in other LG washers of the same design. Unless your floor is perfectly level it's hard to tell whether coming from the left or right side really indicates where underneath the water is coming from.
