Water leaking from under the front of the washing machine

There is water leaking out from under the front of the washing machine. The hoses were leaking and I replaced them and they no longer leak. There is still water coming out from under the front of the washing machine. I have no idea what the problem is.

    I have the same problem with the leak.  So I removed the hoses and support clips on the drain pump.  Now I can't get the pump off.  What am I missing?

The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know

It is most likely the drain pump take it off and look at the shaft end and if you see a brownish looking streak replace it. the pump is hooked on the motor you cant miss it

Water Leak?


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

I have a near new 8.5 kg 6th sense front loader that is leaking lots of water! I've cleaned the filter but no success


You will have to find out where the leak is . Get down and look. at the front, at the back, where? Check the hoses at both ends. Water can run down the hose from the tap or the drain hose can leak. Water can come up out of the grille in the floor This grille might be under the machine. Check it out Cheers Tony

My Kenmore 700 series washer has been leaking water. When the tub is filling with water, water seems to leak along the front bottom edge of the machine in several areas. I'm left with a huge puddle of...


First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

Leaking under Washing machine LG serie WM 2277H.What causes and how to fix it? Thanks!


First check all hoses. The hoses inside the unit, sometimes leak and looks like a water pump problem. Does it leak all the time or only when running. If only running , most likely it's the pump. If you and a friend can lift up the front of the unit "tilt" and block it. Use a flash light and look for water around the pump. The pump will be white plastic with 2 hoses running to it. It has to be a hose or pump (90%). I hope this is a start.

Leaking water in washing machine


Front loader or Top Loader? If front loader you probably put to much in and at spin cycle the tub hit the hose to the pump and possibly got knocked off?

Roper washer leaks when filling


It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.

Leaking wash machine


Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.
