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?

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

Washing machine has a very bad odor when it starts adding water in for the beginning cycle of washing cloths


This is because it is not draining all the way and has mold. You did not post the make and model but you can try to reduce this problem by running the machine at the hottest temp setting with NO load of laundry and you put in 1 cup of bleach. This will kill any mold the water touches. When you are done with the laundry DONT close the door. The air will allow the existing water to evaporate and reduce the mold issue. Note that if there is mold in a place that cannot be reached by water, like under a door seal etc. You may have to clean it by hand.

Did you have a small part of clothing sticking out the door? Water can leak past the door seal on this case. Other than that, run the machine empty u ntill you find the leak location.

'03 Accord-water leak at rear driver side floor board


I had a similar leak on a 1995 Accord. I traced the issue to the plastic liner behind the door panel. The seal was broken at the bottom and water would leak from that to the rubber weatherstrip at the bottom of the door that seals at the plastic threshold molding. You can't really see it good until the door panel is removed. The water would drip until it puddled up enough to run over the threshold molding and under the driver's seat. This caused the floorboard behind the driver's seat to be soaked after a rain. I have resealed the plastic lining but of course it hasn't rained since. I'm confident this will solve my problem and hopefully provide you a new place to look for yours.

MAY8700AWW LEAKING WATER UNDER DOOR AND S/B/F DISPENSER


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.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.
