Washer leaking from bottom

If this is a front loader, you can take the front panel off under the door and inspect the bottom of the machine, there is a drain and trap with a large plug and the pump. Both need to be inspected and the drain should be cleaned and the debris removed from the trap. Get ready for lots of water though if you take the cap off the drain.

Water leaks from the front door. it leaks at the bottom of the door and puddles on the floor. Do I need a new gasket that seals the front door??

If you have a leaking FRONT LOADER, the following link explains how to access and inspect your washer for leaks:

In the majority of the cases with front loaders, the door bellow begins to leak. A routine inspection of the seal perimeter will tell you if there are any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

Follow the tips in the links provided and make sure you inspect all the drain hoses, drain pump cover and tub seals as well.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Whirlpool Front load washer - Water leaking

I would check to see if you have a hole or crack in the rubber boot inside the door. Open the door and seperate the fold in the rubber boot and check for a leak. If something sharp was left in someones pocket it will get stuck in this part of the bood.

Front loader water leaks from bottom

This problem is usually attributed to the door bellow (rubber gray seal) becoming ripped or torn. If you puill back the folds in the rubber and inspect it, you may find a rip or hole in it some where. Another way to tell is by removing the bottom panel under the door and inspect from underneath. It is common for the front counterweight (concrete block) to become wet if the door bellow is leaking. Now, it is normal for these door bellows to wear out and they can be replaced. The following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased on line at,,, or All these sites offer competitiive pricing and great service, so shop all of them for the best price. If you still have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

If my diagnosis is incorrect, please post back and elaborate on where the leak may be coming from so I can assist you better.

Slight leak

It dpends. see if you can see any staining on front of cabinet under the door , if you can then yes it will mean new seal.
Another source of water could be water from the dispenser trickling down the front of the m/c.
Another possibility is that you have a leak from under the front of the washer. Put a piece of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should enable you to pinpoint the source of the leak.
Hope this helps
Please leave feed back

Amana washer leaking.

Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.

Water leaking

Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely you will have to get under to check it out. Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides Do a wash and repeat. But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.
