Washing machine leaking water under neith - Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

    I just bought a new Whirlpool top loading washer with large stainless tub about two weeks ago. After working 6 days per week, I came in last evening and started washing clothes. During the spin cycle I heard a loud sound of rushing water. When I immediately looked at my floor and it was flooded! On kitchen carpet at that! You can imagine the mess and my irritation! The hoses were connected and all water came from underneath the washer. Of course it is the week end and you have to wait with a tub of wet clothes until a repairman can be reached. After reading about the stains on clothes from the stainless tub and the problem with the water, I really wonder if my purchase was a very bad choice.

    Water leaking from bottom of washing unit.

    My washing machine is 4 years old. When the water is going INTO the washer it is dripping on the floor from underneath the machine. The entire bottom of the washer is rusted out. Can this be fixed or do I need a new washing machine. It is a Kenmore Elite from Sears. I do not have an extended warrantly. I have taken no steps to fix this. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

If you own a front loading washing machine and it begins to leak water from underneath, the first thing to learn is where is the water leaking from. On my Frigidare washer (GLTF1240A), there is a lower panel underneath the loading door. There are two philips screws to remove and then the panel can be removed. Use a flashlight as you run a load of clothes. I found the water was coming from the bottom of the round wash tank, where several bolts hold it together.

A LOT of Water ran out from under my washing machine while washing. The tub was still full of water. What could have happened, and where to I begin looking for the problem? My washer is a GE washing machine and I think it is about 4 to 5 years old.
