Re: How can i open the machine
There should be 2 5/16 screwsacross the bottom front panel to gain acess to the inside. after remove the panel there are 2 more additional ***** tthat will drop the larger half of front panel. can you see brown/ rust colored splatters around the entire insire of cabinet??? if so you have a bad main seal. other wise youll be able to see where the waters coming from atleast. but this machine is known for have bad main seal. repair requires a hub and seal kit p/n 766p3a. everthiin you need is in kit as well as a instuction manual for installing. minus the sealant. which i use a marine silicone caulking when i cant find the reccomneded 3m product. regular silicone wont work, it needs to remain somewhat pliable and be able to be submerged in water.

Sounds much like the rubber diaphragm in the water inlet valve is split, which means that as long as the water tap is on you will get that drip drip drip of water into the machine.
You can still use the machine until you fix the problem, but the most obvious short term thing to do is to turn the water taps off when the machine is not in use.
To determine which machine inlet valve is leaking, turn on both taps, then turn off, first the HOT water tap as this is more often than not the least used. If the leaking persists, then it is the Cold Water Inlet Valve you need to replace on your machine.
While this repair can be done by a suitably skilled handyman, I always urge caution, because the average guy may just not have as well instilled "Safety Consciousness" as the professional technician who does this sort of thing all the time.
Remember, you are dealing with 240v A.C. which can deliver a LETHAL shock.......so unplug the power cord when doing any work as the least of safety steps to take. It only takes one forgetful mistake which could result in injury or worse!
The water may be a result of the drain not being able to handle the flow. This can be a result of either the drain hose not being in far enough, a blockage in the drain, or even a slow draining main line in the house. (The above applies if the puddle is from the drain area.)
If it's leaking water out the bottom, then it is a problem with the short hose that attaches the water reservior to the heating element. These rubber hoses have to handle the high temperature of the heating pad and water pump, so they often crack and leak after four or five years of use. They can be replaced with parts from another old model if you have a handyman close by, or buying another one is the option.

Changing bearings in a pump motor is not something the average handyman will do. It takes some knowledge and some special tools to do this correctly. You would be better off buying a whole new pump, or replacing the motor on your present pump.
hello tom quick to to do open the door on the washer grab the hold of the drum lift up and down if it feel loose the bearing have gone try this site www.espare.co.uk these may sell the bearing and might show you how to fit them hope it helps good luck
a worn film capacitor on the circuit board is the cause of the problem which often manifests itself after several years using the dwf 407. Replacing the film capacitor on the circuit board is the solution! Such a capacitor costs about GBP 2. The removal of the circuit board that is in the door is not very difficult, four torque screws along the inside top of the door (not the two for the door lock) a click system in which the print is stuck in the door. On the print are a few connectors with wires to loosen-take picture or mark them for reassembly purposes. There are several types of DWF 407, sometimes the print is slightly different. But the culprit is always the big gray block. The value that you must have is 250/275 V 1,5UF. Many electronics stores have them or can order them. Soldering you can do yourself if you have some experience or ask your local handyman. It is not very difficult, you have plenty of space on the board and only two feet soldering required. After that my dishwasher was as new at the fraction of the price
Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
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. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
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 need to replace it.
Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
CA Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip. Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.
