Question about Amana ALW880WH Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Amana washer leaking.

When the Amana Commercial Quality washer is running it creates a puddle of water on the floor in front of the machine. There is no noticeable water behind or beside the machine. My husband took the front panel off and there is a little water at the bottom of the machine, but no noticeable leaks. Do you have any ideas where the water may be coming from and how we could fix it without calling a repair person.

    Washed up in Minnesota: Our Amana ALW880QAW washer pools water on the floor, with no visible source of the leak. Will inspect the drain hose connectors as suggested. Does not do this every use.



    Thanks,

    I have an amana LWA60AW Washer. Water puddles around base of the machine. I removed the front panel. The bottom of the pump is damp to the touch. The hoses are dry and plyable. Do I just replace the pump itself or do I fix it another way?



    Any help is appreciated.

Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

I would check to see if you have a hole or crack in the rubber boot inside the door. Open the door and seperate the fold in the rubber boot and check for a leak. If something sharp was left in someones pocket it will get stuck in this part of the bood.
