Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the inlet hose and connect it firmly to prevent leaks and then check the air vent pipe which is located at the back of the unit. Also check the door gasket from the front with a flashlight, you can even check for leaks by running your fingers across the gasket. This is a common issue if you are using HE detergent or too much of normal detergent. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Model wm0642hw front load. it leaks by door frame.rubber seal with clamp.only 2 years old. do i need to change the door frame outer part a151? thanks for your response in advance


Hi, If the door isnt loose or broken? Its more likely to be the rubber door seal if its leaking between the seal and the door glass. Check the edge of the seal where it touches against the glass for damage or ware if its ok clean any soap residue or bits from the glass.If it still leaks change the door seal.

I have a two month old Samsung WF350 front load washer. I have a trickle of water leaking from the bottom of the door during wash cycles.


I just received my Samsung WD 8804 front loader washing machine, and during the 3rd wash trial, I noticed the same problem of water trickling down from the base of the front door. I took a closer look and the problem is actually due to a cracked rubber seal, which can be seen through the glass door. I have informed the technician.

Door gasket leaks is it hard to replace ?


Before you go to the expense of replacing the door gasket, try cleaning the glass door itself with a soft plastic scratcher. Scum builds up on the glass and does not allow a tight seal. Be careful not to use a metal scratcher as it might scratch you glass door. If this does'nt work then ispect your gasket for tears or holes in the gasket, and inspect your door hinges to make sure they have not been bent. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Hello there:
Here is a few tips that might help you out
Hope that they are very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
Washing machine is leaking Washing machine leaks are very common. There are many places a washing machine can leak from although most leaks come from the same few places. The most common cause for a leaking washing machine is the door seal. Door seals often get holes in them and water leaks down the inside of the washing machine which then runs out under the front. Water leaking down the front of the washing machine from the door can be caused by a worn door seal (the flange part that the door glass presses against when closed) or something trapped between the door seal and the door glass which breaks the seal. If the door seal doesn't look worn, or it's too young to be worn, then try cleaning the door seal's flange and the door glass on the inside of the door. Bits of cotton, un dissolved washing machine detergent etc can cause a leak.
Soap dispenser leaks
The next most common cause of a leaking washing machine is the soap dispenser. Leaking water from a soap dispenser is often caused by a blockage, or water pressure that is simply too high. Despite seeing many leaking soap dispensers, I've never seen a soap drawer with a seal, they just rely on water not getting to the front which is not really good enough. Some Hoover soap dispensers in particular, are renowned for leaking, and over the years Hoover have had to introduce modified soap dispensers twice.
Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning)
Finally, black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.
Tips for finding a leak on a washing machine
  • If you have a leaking washing machine, and you can't see where it's coming from, shove some newspaper underneath the washing machine. The slightest drop will give a clue where the water is leaking from. Pull the sheet out regularly to check for water leaks.
  • Water can run round things and drip onto other parts. Be careful with your diagnosis, as water dripping from a hose at the bottom could actually be leaking from somewhere else higher up.
  • Leaks usually leave marks, so it's possible to see something is leaking even without witnessing it. The soap suds that come out with the leaking water leave white trails. Rust is a good indicator of a water leak too. However, if you have had a previous leak cured, the "evidence" of a leak may still be present so be sure you don't blame a part that was repaired in the past.
  • If the washing machine leaks only at the end of the wash, when water is being pumped out. Make sure water isn't backing up and cascading over the top of a blocked drain pipe in the plumbing.
  • WARNING: Don't get electrocuted trying to witness a leak. It's dangerous running the washing machine with the top or back off.

LG front load washing machine water leaks with heavy loads


If your water is leaking with heavy loads, the first thing you want to check is the gasket (door boot) attached to the tub. Look for holes or rips in the bellows part(where the water settles) and around where it contacts the door. Any nicks or holes will cause leakage. Also, check the glass dome on the door towards the bottom. If it has dirt or hair buildup on it, it will leak with any pressure on the door.
