Hi friend,
Step 1 Look at the floor drain to make sure it isn't clogged. Sometimes it's not even the washing machine, but the drain causing those puddles of water on the floor. Unclogging the drain can be an easy and quick fix.

  • Step 2 Inspect the hoses for leaks or wear and tear in certain spots. Filling the washing machine may help identify any leaks or faulty hoses. If hoses are worn, replace them with non-burst stainless steel mesh hoses.
  • Step 3 Check the fittings of the existing hoses to the faucet fixtures and on the back of the washing machine. Sometimes a loose connection is the cause for the leaks. Tighten couplings and hose clamps if necessary to fix the leaks.
  • Step 4 Replace internal washers inside of the hoses if not replacing the entire hose. Something as small as a rubber gasket can create a lot of water damage. Use a screwdriver to pop the worn washer out and replace it. Repeat replacing washers on the other end of the hose.
  • Step 5 Examine internal components by opening the cabinet and starting the fill cycle to see if anything is leaking internally. Calcium deposits and rust may be evident around areas that have leaks.
  • Step 6 Use hose clamp pliers to remove any corroded spring clamps and replace them with new ones. Make sure the hose is still intact underneath the old clamp. If not, remove the internal hose and take it to an appliance repair center to find the correct replacement part

    Repair a cold water leak at the bottom of my water heater


    Hi -

    If your water heater is working (ie: making hot water) then most likely your heater isn't leaking. Rather, the leak is coming from the cold water supply and running down the tank where you see it at the bottom of the tank. A working tank that is leaking would produce a leak of hot water - not cold. You should carefully check the cold water piping for a leak, drip or stream of water and make the required repairs.

    Copy following link for troubleshooting leaking water heater.

    You posted question under propane gas heater.
    Propane is heavier and air, and this type gas water heater should not be installed in basement (below grade) since gas leak can fill basement with explosive gas.
    Water leak does not cause gas leak, so water leak is separate problem.
    Recommended for propane safety: install gas detector close to floor near gas water heater
    Regular Natural Gas heater, install gas detector higher on wall since NG is lighter than air and will rise.

    Why is there a water leak coming from the water pump?


    i would say you answered your own question, if there is water leaking from the water pump i would say the water pump is leaking and it needs to be replced,either the bearing is bad and its leaking out the shaft,or the seal is bad and its leaking outta there either way you need a new water pump,check the belt for wear when you replace it,,
