My water dispenser was not working. Tried the defrost trick and still no water. Noticed water under the refrigerator.


The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.

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.

Frostfree freezer leaking from lower front


From what you have described, without a model number, it sounds like the unit is leaking from possibly going into a defrost cycle. Check to see if you have any ice build up that is now melting or "slushy" in that general area. Water tends to run along the nearest plastic ridges and parts til it can escape underneath.

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


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

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

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.

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Replacements can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, repairclinic.com, or pcappliancerepair.com. 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.

Water Leaking from pre-wash and main wash cold water solenoid


We had the small leak problem. It was a cut in the bellows at the door. Lower side. We could see it if we just spread the gasket just inside the door.

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.
