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 www.marcone.com 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

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.

Maytag centennial washer not working properly in Normal cycle. After it shuts off there is still water in the bottom of the tub. I can move the dial to another setting such as Casual cycle or Heavy Duty...


We have the same problem. The Normal cycle still works, but after the final spin cycle, water is again added (1 gal est.) and the machine stops. Problem occurred after washing an old 25 x 30 inch rug which partially disentegrated when washed. We were seeing particles of the rug in subsequent wash cycles during drain into laundry tub. Don't know if something is plugged in the washer or if it is something else. In another load after the rug wash, the top of the washer was lifted during the wash cycle. The water problem occurred immediately after lifting the lid as the wash load went through remaining cycles. Maybe this affected the timer? Maytag customer service suggested unplugging power cord to re-set timer. This didn't make any difference. We need a technician to tell us if this is a timer problem or something else?

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


Hi,

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.
