If its leaking by that amount there will almost certainly be a pipe that has pulled loose somewhere at the soap box due to the soap suds leaking over the floor. To see the workings, remove the top lid and start a cycle and observe. Go from there.

Suds leaking from detergent drawer on brand new Bosch washing machine


Use high efficiency detergent that s more concentrated. It uses MUCH lesser detergent VoLUME than conventional. The detergent has "He" letter on the bottle. And usually with FULl load it uses only about 150+-cc ( my cup is on 3marked level provided by the detergent bottle) Hope this helps! Robert Calgary, AB

I recently purchased a insinger 18-5 dishwasher, what type of detergents should I use ??


Follow the steps below to ensure proper dishwasher detergent selection and usage.

Use only powder, liquid or tablet detergent designed specifically for automatic dishwashers. Any other types may cause a sudsing and as a result, poor wash performance and possibly suds and water on your kitchen floor. GE recommends either Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® detergents.


Use the right amount of detergent for the job. Soft hot water requires less detergent - perhaps a quarter of a cup in the main cup. Very hard water requires a full main cup and a full open cup to get good wash performance. Conditions between these require judgment. Use enough to get the job done, but don't use more than you need.


Too much detergent in very soft water will cause etching of glassware. This is a permanent clouding of the glass. If you experience this condition, use less detergent.


Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Store the detergent in container away from moisture to prevent lumps. Do not put detergent in the cup until you are ready to run a cycle. If powder detergent gets old or lumpy, throw it out; it will not clean effectively. Liquid detergents do not age.


As a rule of thumb:
Harder water requires more detergent

Cooler water requires more detergent

Softer water requires less detergent

Hotter water requires less detergent

Tub leaks, with a partially filled tub (2.5 inches measured from the lowest point over the pump assembly.) Promblem occured after the washer was idle for 3 weeks. Have just replaced the main water inlet...


I am assuming leaking when it is running, not sitting idle. Leaking from the door? Fill and run unit for 1 minute with no detergent. Open door. Are suds present? Suds turn into water when they drop to the floor. Suds can flow over the lip of the tub and drip to the floor. Oversudsing, Sometimes old detergent breakdown. Rinse aid dispenser leaking will cause oversudsing. Combination of all in one products will cause many problems. If suds are present after running unit a minute, pour a cup of cooking oil in unit. Run and fill it a few times until suds are gone. Possible most common cause is dispenser latch grommet.

I have an electrolux front loading washing machine it is leaking water at the bottom and produces chunks of melted plastic during the cycle


Hello. If water is leaking from your washer, check the list below:
  • Is the drain clogged? If you have a clogged drain, it will need to be cleaned – contact a local plumber if necessary.
  • Is the drain hose restricted, or out of the standpipe? If the drain hose is out of the standpipe, you’ll need to secure it. You can do this by bending the end to form a hook, placing the hooked end into the standpipe, and tying the hose to the standpipe or a faucet with a cable tie (one was supplied with the washer), strong filament tape, or duct tape.
  • Are the fill hose connections loose at the faucet or washer? Check them and tighten the hose connections. If they’re loose, you might need to install or replace the rubber sealing washers.
  • Are you using a high-sudsing detergent or is your water soft? Using a high-sudsing detergent, or using too much detergent in soft water, can cause suds to overflow the washer. This may seem like a leak if the suds flow or drip onto the floor. Use a low-sudsing detergent and reduce the amount of detergent you use if your water is soft.

Sud error message


Hello, The most common cause of the 'sud' alarm is too much detergent, or the detergent that is being used is creating too much suds. It works and alarms off of the motor current draw. The causes and cures listed below are pretty much in order of their commonality; try the first item before the second one, etc. If you can pin the fault on the detergent, try using the least amount of detergent that you can while still getting your clothes clean. With a HE washer, more isn't always better. Read on:

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If “Sud” is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Potential Causes

• If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
• Check Drain Pump
• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Pressure Switch
• Check CCU

Replace failed component.

Hope that this helps. Try the empty loads first to clear the detergent. This is the easiest fix.
Best regards, --W/D--

Kenmore Elite HE3 water is leaking out the front door


These are notorious for the door boot leaking. Look for any tears, rips, pinholes in the door boot. Also make sure the door is parallel with the machine. Most likely it's the boot. Parts about 100.00. Labor can run from 110-140 depending where you go.

LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.


You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

LG washer leaking problem


You may be using too much detergent.  Use only 2 tablespoons of detergent in your wash.  Using too much will oversud the machine causing the suds to go out the back vent and on to the floor giving the sense of a leak.  
On the dispenser, make sure that the containers are clean and free of any debris.

Suds leaking from back of washer near top


Suds are not supposed to leak from the top; means you are not using the right detergent. Use front loading powders. You can open up the top during next wash to locate where the leak is coming from (after changing powder). I understand suds appear in the window during spin....but leak? Caution when machine works with top open!
