My 1999 Alero must have a leak somewhere because the thermostat gauge rises every few days. I put coolant in it at least 1 a week. I had a new water pump and thermostat put on it, but it is still...


CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP AREA.AND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKS.THE MECHANIC WHO PUT THE WATER PUMP ON MAY FORGOT TO PUT SEALANT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WATER PUMP GASKET CAUSING LEAKS.LOOK AROUND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKING.IF THERMOSTAT SEAL WAS DAMAGE DURING INSTALLATION IT WILL CAUSE LEAKING.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND RADIATOR .CHECK RADIATOR TOP AND BOTTOM HOSES FOR LEAKS AND CHECK HEATER PIPES AND HEATER CORES HOSES FOR LEAKS.IF ALL HOSES GOOD.CHECK FOR LEAKING CORE PLUGS.

Kleenmaid top-load washing m/c leaks water and then smokes!


It sounds like you are leaking from the bottom of the unit. If you are leaking at the top then you need to check the water inlet valves, and also the drain pump and all water hoses. This doesnt sound like a seal issue.

Proline pool pump SD-1--1N11XB


This sounds like you have a bad seal in your pump and the loose piece is probally a piece on the shaft of the motor called a water slinger. This is just there in case your seal goes bad and leaks water it will spin with the motor and sling the leaking water out and away from the motor so a small leak does not ruin your motor. But you will still need to replace your seal and "O" ring.

Washer is leaking a little at the bottom


The cause of the leak may well be a clog in the pump. As clothes spin around inside the washer, many times items left in pockets work their way into the pump when it rinses and spins out. To inspect the pump, remove the bottom panel. You will see a hose attached to the pump. Detach the
hose and inspect the inside of the pump. You may need a pair of needlenose pliers or a screwdriver to feel your way around inside the pump for any debris. If the pump is clear, inspect the hoses. Over time, the ends of the hoses become soft and a leak can develop. If the end of the hose is leaking, you can sometimes trim the end and reuse the hose but if there's no play in the hose or if you find the leak elsewhere, a new hose will be needed.

Water leaking from under washer


Hi

You'll need to open the machine and check for the leaks in the hose connected to the drain pump. Also check if the clamp connecting the drain filter and hose is tight. Also check these things for leaks---

Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.

Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you'll need to replace it.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Leaking from the bottom


More then likely you pump is cracked. Easy and cheap to repair though luckily. The pump is located right at the front of the machine on the front of the motor. In spin all the water is getting sucked out through the pump. It probably got cracked due to something getting sucked into it like a coin or something and breaking the housing. You can get a new pump for around 30 dollars at your local appliance repair shop. Make sure you get some hose clamps too though or you may have water all over your floor when you take the pump off. Just ask at the appliance place and they should have some. You will need two clamps. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.
