Water leaking out the bottom of the door

We just discovered mold in our laundry room which apparently is a direct result of water leaking out the bottom of the door. We're not sure if it's the seal in the washer or the door lock, but I'm not sure how to fix either or both. Any ideas?

Re: Water leaking out the bottom of the door

You most likely need to make a small adjustment to the door. While the door is open push the bottom of the door towards the machine and pull the top of the door away from the machine, be careful not to go too far. that should take care of the leak. Before you do that make sure the water is coming out between the glass and the seal. I would remove the lower panel and make sure the seal doesn't have a small hole. You should see the seal leak from the inside. Hope this helps

Why is water leaking from bottom of double stack fridgidaire washer/dryer combo?

Thank you for your post, friend!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

My LG WM1480FD leaks from the bottom and from the door .It flooded my laundry room

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

The first thing to do is to have the leak investigated by somebody at your premises as we could only offer a list of guesses ;-0)

Once it is empty and carefully lifted onto its side, it should be possible to inspect the hoses and clips and hopefully identify the culprit. In some cases it might even be possible to affect at least a temporary fix whilst obtaining the necessary spare.
Sorry we could be only of limited help in this instance- it's very difficult diagnosing this sort of problem remotely ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have LG's inverter Direct Drive washing machine that i bought a year ago. Almost a quarter cup of water stays in the detergent compartment after the wash. Also when the I open the door to put the laundry...

Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It's caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It's caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It's caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

Service came out to check out my washer. He sent it thru the wash cycle and it started leaking. He removed the top and checked the hose that leads from dispenser to tub. What he found was the round piece of paper from the clorox top which had dropped into the dispenser apparently when I poured clorox into the dispenser. Which was causing the dispenser to backwash underneath and flow down like it was coming from underneath the door. Thank God I have an extended warranty. I advise everyone who has the newer digital models to purchase an extended warranty. It is worth it....the repair can be costly from what I understand.

Where is my leak coming from?

Your machine has a bottom access panel. Remove the panel and run the unit. This will help determine where the leak is.
