Hi
please follow the easy steps...
1.Unplug the machine.
2.Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
3.Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
4.If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
5.Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
6.Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
7.Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
8.Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
9.Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
10.Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
11.Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
12.There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
13.There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
14.Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

No offense, but I think it's time for a new washer. The only thing that comes to mind for leaking would be a broken hose. Is it leaking out of the bottom bottom or like the bottom of the door?

Hayward sand s166t. leaking from bottom


Are you sure it is leaking from a spot "Originating" at the bottom? Many times this is what is seen, but the water is actually traveling down the side.

If at the bottom, you either have a cracked tank, or the drain cap is loose, missing the cap gasket or it is on "Cross Threaded"?

But... most likely from experience, it leaking at the valve clamp.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Badger 5 is leaking from bottom of unit... is this repairable? Thanks Chad


If it is leaking from the bottom and not from the top and running down the side then it is only repaiable by replacing the disposal, If it the top leaking and running down the side, then it can be rpaired by replacing the rubber gasket on the top.

Water leaking from bottom ofoasis top loading machine


you may not be leaking out the bottom. Your stand pipe may be clogged. If the stand pipe has a slight clog in it, the stand pipe will over flow, and the water "looks" as if its leaking from the bottom... These pump faster than your old machine, so the pipe will back up faster... hope that helps
