2 screws across the bottom of front panel will allow the front panel to slide off, then you can get an idea *** to where the leak is happening. fill with just a little water and advance to spin

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

Water has been leaking out of the bottom of my washer, and it has been making a horrible grinding sound. It finally stopped spinning last night, though it makes noises and tries to run.


Hi just read your posting.Now when is the machine noisy?Is it when the machine pumps out the water or when the bowl spins.Sorry to ask you this but please be accurate when you reply to this question.The reason being is that if it is noisy when it pumps the water it could be your pump but if it is noisy when the bowl turns for the spin then the problem will be your bearings and seals.Select a spin cycle and push start,is it noisy as soon as you push the start button?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

Water leaks during final spin cycle only


Hi,
The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Will not spin in final spin


there is likely a blockage in the pump/bottom water feed hose. check out the filter and if clear you will have to clean out the bottom hose.

Help Guru Please


Ill try,
first off its normal for water to spray in during the final spin( its a spray rinse), as far as the water coming back into your machine after the final spin stops, you have an issue with oyour drain, i would assume that the drain hose is NOT going into a stand pipe"open drain", but instead clamped to another hose leading outside or to a drywell, in which case youll need to install a "one way check valve". whats happening is after the final spin is done al;l the waterin the drain line is reurning back formn the drain hose.Proper insstallation will cure this.
lastly its hard to describe"slower than usual spin" it will progressivly spin faster as moire water is removed form the machine, i wqould rectify the drain issue before i concern my self with this( and make sure you not selecting a :gentle spin" option of coarse... hope this is helpful to you!

Sounds like rocks in machine on final spin


The rear drum seal has leaked water into the rear bearing. Sorry, but the repair is expensive and difficult. It's time for a new washer. Look into the LG models, which are direct drive. Please don't bother rating this, as anything other than a FixYa drops my rating, and I know you don't want to kill the messenger, right?

OLDE WASHING MACHINE LEAKING AFTER FINAL SPIN BUT NOT ALL THE TIME


Not too familiar with top loaders. With front loaders good pressure is required to keep the inlet valve closed, when not in operation. If the pressure is not there water leaks even when the machine is off. The problem cld be with the pressure from your faucet or your inlet valve; mysterious why it happens after the final spin, & your second machine.... I can't be of much help here. You hv to surf......
