    The washer leaks at the bottom every wash. I checked the hoses and it is not the problem. The leak is coming from underneath.

It may have torn the gasket or just have a sock stuck in it.
you can remove the bottom panel to help look.
(3 screws on bottom front lip)
remove ac power
you cannot operate with bottom door removed as it has a safety switch.
While you are down there open the filter and look for trapped debris.
ready for some water , have towels ready.

Check that the feet are level to the floor as this may cause the vibration. Also set the machine to wool mode this then knows what material you are putting in the machine then should cycle to that material.

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.

LG Front Load moves and vibrates violently during spin cycle?


This is a mis-direction. I was informed that I needed to reinforce my floor to reduce the vibration . The problem persisted. Then it turned into a loud roaring when the washer went into spin cycle. I have disassembled the machine to find out that the root of the problem was caused by a leak occuring where the inner tub's spline shaft goes through the bearing assembly in the back. the leak degraded the bearings to the point that caused the vibration to get worse and thus started a cycle of increasing distruction to the bearings untill the leak made its way onto and inside the electrical connectors for the stator. This shorted out the motherboard and totally distroys the machine to the point where the parts are more expensive to fix it then the machine is worth. To repair it you need to get the service manual to find out how to take it apart. After getting the inner and outter tub removed from the machine you need to totally dissemble the tubs so the rear outter tub that holds the bearings can be replaced. To troubleshoot if you have the same problem I had take the back plate off the washer and inspect the area at the bottom of the rotor. If you see any rust or water discoloration trails then start taking the machine apart before the motor shorts out the motherboard and kills the machine.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle


Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.

Bosch WFR2460 Leaks


are you sure it only happens in the spin cycle? and is the leak comming from the bottom front of the washer? most front laoders will leak due to a tear in the belows. that is the rubber boot that seals the washer tub to the front panel. if there was a hole or a tear in the bellows it should have a leak inthe wash cycle also. but there are also other possibilitys too.but its strange to only leak in a spin cycle due to the washer is extracting the water and not adding it. so check and see if it leaks in the wash cycle to and get back to me and we can go from there. looking through my training manual i dont see what could cause a leak in just the spin cycle
