Question about Washing Machines

Water coming out the bottom during wash cycle.

When the wife does laundry, I have water coming out the bottom. I have checked that she is not overloading the tub and still I have water on the floor. this does not happen all the time, and sometimes more water than none on occasion. I have had the washer over twelve years and this is the first problem I have had with it. Any suggestions or ideas?

Washing machine tubs hold a seal at the transmission. If it is leaking now, the seal is starting to wear out. The explanation of it "SOMETIMES" leaking and not is that the load that is being washed could be off balance causing the seal to wear a lil more. If you look at under parts, you can see for yourself if it will be worth either trying to fix it, have it repaired, or replace it. I hope for you, the first option because more often than not, it is cheapest.

Good luck

My admiral washer does not work on wash cycle. It will rinse and spin on any cycle but wash

hi Marilyn.
this is what i have found but not sure if this will help you out,if not go to the link at the bottom and see if it helps you out.

Step 1

Make sure the washer's cord is plugged in to a functioning outlet if the Admiral washer won't fill with water. Check your circuit breaker to make sure the power is on and reset it if necessary. Reset the dial and start the washer again. Turn both of the washer's faucets on to full power. Untangle any inlet hoses to remove clogs. If this doesn't work, your hose filter screens could be clogged. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and clean the screens of any residue.

Step 2

Close the washer's lid completely if the Admiral washer will not agitate. The washer will not start if the lid is open. Restart the washer by setting the control dial to the desired cycle. Momentary pauses during cycles can be expected. You may need to wait a minute or two to see if the washer starts. Check the circuit breaker to make sure the washer is getting power. Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.

Step 3

Check and reset the circuit breaker as above if the Admiral washer will not spin or drain. Untangle any of the washer's hoses to allow water into the machine. Check your drains for clogs that may be preventing water to move into the washing machine. Close the lid and restart the washer. The washer will not start if the lid is not completely closed. If there are excessive soap bubbles in the washer, the washer may have locked up because of this. Wash the load again without adding detergent.

Step 4

Rearrange the laundry so it is evenly distributed if the Admiral washer stops or if laundry is still wet at the end of a cycle. Untangle any laundry from the center post in the wash tub. Select the correct water level for the amount of laundry. Select a normal spin cycle for jeans, towels or other heavy loads. Close the lid and start the washer.

Step 5

Check the hoses to make sure they are tightly connected to the Admiral washer if it leaks water. If they are loose, tighten them with a screwdriver. Make sure the drain hose is secured to the drainage area. Avoid putting too much laundry in your machine or soaking laundry for over 30 minutes.

Step 6

Make sure the Admiral washer is on a level plane if it is excessively noisy. If it is not on even ground, move the washer so that it is level. Remember that some washer noise is normal. Thin floors can cause the washer to vibrate and move about and the noise level may rise and fall depending on the speed of the cycle.

I have a Kenmore series 600 washer which leaves white residue on laundry. I've tried using less detergent (only use liquid detergent) but it still happens. Using Tide detergent.

There are a lot of causes for that issue. Overloading, too much softener, bad drain pump, dirty drum, hard water are some of the more common ones.

We have a Samsung WF8802 RPZ washing machine with a 5ud fault code. What is the problem?

We have a Samsung WF8604NGW front loading dimond 6kg washing machine. We had the 5ud error message. It turned out the filter was clogged with fluff from a new set of bathroom mats my wife washed. To fix: Put the machine on to drain (if poss) - should be 1 minute on our machine however as the machine was so clogged it took around 15 to finish. Also use the draning tube located next to the filter (on our machine) to get rid of as much water as poss. Now remove filter and clear (warning some water will remain in the system) Before spinning any laundry run the rinse cycle (with an empty drum) a couple of times and clear the filter each time. If the filter is still clogged the laundry will spin heavy as the water will still be in the drum leaving you with no very dry laundry and a horrible noise during the spin. Regards Rik.

Water overflow when tub is emptying during spin cycle

It sounds more like you have a drain problem that a machine problem. Try draining into the laundry tub and check that the tub drains quickly enough. If not, you have a plumbing problem...Good luck...Nomess

The conditioner drwaer fills with water after each cycle and the machine leaaks during each cycle

Check for pluged drain to washer ,check fill hoses for tighten fittings and good washer inside. (seal). The conditioner container may have a valve that has gone bad or pluged up. To much conditioner can plug this part up, Should check with a appliance repairman. If this is electrical, he should do the job for safety. Hope this might be of some help.

Leaking water

Does not sound like a bearing problem. Check to see if water is overflowing the top of the tub during spin cycle (due to spin action) and running down the side of the tub.  Water rising up the side of the tub during spin cycle could also be squirting up through bleach dispenser opening and running down side of tub.

Repair of samsung (karisma ) washing machine


Water draining is indicative that the drain valve is left open allowing water to escape even during regular/wash cycle and not only on drain/wash cycle completion. this could be brought about by:
1. laundry material, debris, safety pin, clips or some other foreign material has lodged itself prohibiting the drain valve in closing properly; or
2. the mechanism (solenoid) closing the valve is jammed in the open position.

Corrective measure calls for inspection and possibly cleaning or solenoid/control mechanism repair or replacement. Often these can be found at the bottom or near bottom of the machine below the tub.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
