MY FIRST THOUGHT WOULD BE INSPECT THE BIG GREY DOOR GASKET FOR A CUT OR A TEAR. LOOK CLOSE. THE WHOLE MAY BE TINY

Water leaking from the panel under the turn knob


Water comes in the back, then goes via to solenoid valves to the back of the powder tray, it then is distributed through holes above each compartment, take out the powder tray (push down the blue bit at the back of the softener compartment) and check for cracks or even blockages, (water goes from tray down the back and through a short rubber hose straight into the drum.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

White-Westinghouse wash cycle not engaging


Likely transmission failure. The motor controls agitation as well as draining

Kenmore 80 didn't drain during the spin cycle and leak underneath machine. Makes buzzing noise in the wash cycles.


The pump is likely damaged if it was leaking. Look for a ring of melted plastic on the face side of the pump. Check to make sure the hole is not rounded where the motor shaft enters the pump.
I'd replace the pump just to make sure the washer doesn't flood some time in the future even if the pump turn out to be ok now.

My westinghouse LT608S wont start washing cycle. washer turns on ok, then when i press the start button to start washing it keeps beeping at me, and the 2 lights on the 'water level' section are flashing....


Westinghouse lt608s...I had the same problem that when you pushed start it would just beep and the water level lights would flash...i fixed this by replacing the magnet underneath the lid. To test if this is the problem place a magnet about a third of the way up ion top of the lid on the left hand side and then press start. If it starts then you know the magnet that is supposed to be underneath the lid is either broken and missing or rusty...anyway i hot glued mine (as i do not use hot wash) back under the lid and hey presto it worked fine.

I have a f&p Smartdrive 708 washer that is leaking water underneath the machine. It is only a small leak at the moment. Could the seals be worn out?


Hi you need to identify where the water is coming from three main places are 1: pump seal 2: a hole in the drain hose 3: Main bowl seal my advice is turn it off at the wall lean it over and have a look underneath and clean floor area. does the base of the main motor look clean if yes its probably not the main bowl seal. So its down to the last two if your models got the plastic removable cover on the front its easy to remove it and watch where the water is leaking from my "guess" is a pump seal you will see it drip/ splash of the pump fan during drain/ spin cycle Be very careful to turn off at wall as there is voltage around these things even when power is off at the machine panel

Small puddle of water underneath washer when wash cycle was completed.


That could be 1 of a couple things.

1) During the agitate cycle... some water could've made it out of tub.

2) Possible Tub Crack (or overflow line)

3) Check your inlet lines

I would run it again watching it very carefully to determine if any of these are the problem.

Hello. My frontload LG Washer started leaking


I have the same problem I think. During the wash cycle, water sometimes starts spraying/leaking from the detergent dispenser drawer. This orignally only happened during a 'NORMAL' wash and when I ran a 'SPEED WASH' it was ok. Now all of a sudden it's doing it during the 'SPEED WASH' also. I though it might be the water pressure so I turned down the flow going to the washer but that doesn't seem to help. If I knew how the detergent system worked maybe it would be easier to solve this problem.
