Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

Where is my leak coming from?

So I posted a week ago and thought that my water leak was coming from the bottom of the front door. Now it almost seems as if the leak is coming from under the washer. Is that possible? There doesn't appear to be water leaking from the hoses on the back or the pipes on the wall. Where else could water be coming from? We're replacing our laundry room floor tomorrow due to mold and it would be nice to get this darn leak fixed ASAP. Thanks for any ideas.

Re: Where is my leak coming from?

I had a washer dryer stack set from Frigidaire and it started leaking after 3 years.It was a small amount of water at first so I thought not big deal..then it got bigger..
I had a repairman come in and the tub was cracked.. After reading alot of negative about Frigidaire on the internet I thought oh no it will be a waste of time to contact them.
I found a complaint on another site and there was a reply from Frigidaire and the gentleman wanted the consumer to contact him so he could take care of of the problem.
I contacted that email address and they were so helpful.
They offered to fix my machine for free or let me have another set like it for half price.
The repairs were going to be over $800.
I chose the second option because I was afraid the repairs might not last since the tub was cracked. I bought another set which was $1100. I got my check for $550 in the mail yesterday..
I am very grateful that they stood behind their products..
If anyone needs that email address contact me and I will send it to you...

Re: 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.

Whirlpool washer leaks from bottom when filling

So you are saying it leaks from the front ?? It would seem that the door gasket has a hole in it or the outlet hose has split. Take a torch and look at the bottom folds of the door gasket to see if there is a split in it. Switch off the power first!!!!then If not there bring the machine forward, tip it back against the wall (Put something underneath it in case it falls on you ) and use you torch to see where the water is coming from

Water Leak from the Front Door of our Maytag Epic MFW9700S

The water leaking is most likely the gasket. It may have a little rip or something making it not seal. Im not sure about Maytag but on our GE we had to slide the the top back to remove some screws then (I believe to was for the control panel) Then we removed screws for the door and the front of the washer. When that was done you have to remove a round clamp that holds the gasket on. Then replace the gasket.

My suggestion is to have a appliance repair come and do it. Its a pain to do, at least it was for me.

On this washer  the seal was replaced ?Did it stop leaking after the seal was put in ? Front load hatch on this is in front area located on the bottom(base).Remove the front  to gain access and you can now reach the pump and  look for any blockage.After  you have found and removed the blockage,run the washer again and if any water leaks remain call your local  servicer .You may have a bad front boot (seal) or its just loosened and it need to be re- tightened.Any water leak should be repaired ASAP so you dont have even more damage to the machine and your home.If the repairman cant stop the leak on his first visit than have the Boot replaced on his second visit.

Water leaking from bottom front panel

Plug off the wall. Open the back of the machine to take a good look at the tube coming out from the bottom of the tub, open the front door to see if the door washer is loose somewhere. You could even try to reach out thru the back to locate any loose rubber gasket, the door gasket that is...... Possible you could take out the top of the machine to see if any of the normal 3 tubes entering your dispenser has come loose.....
