Question about Estate ETW4100SQ Top Load Washer
I walked into my laundry room to a flood of soapy water..after cleaning it up, i put in a small load and turned the machine on. During the first 5 mins, I notice water starting to puddle out from behind my machine. It is obviously coming from underneath. Before I move my dryer out so that I can move my washing machine over and look underneath, any suggestions of what I am looking for? Could it be just a loose hose or something?
It is possible it is just a loose hose or it could mean your trmp or the tub itself is leaking. I would try going to the back of the machine and take off the bottom panel.and take off the back panel. After removal start it and observe where the leak is happening.

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?
Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!
This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.
And not a washer malfunction.
If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.
If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.
But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!
I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!
Let me know that you have succeeded!

try running the snake from the top to the bottom. they ell pressure hose ends that you inser into the pipe on the end of a hose and when you turn the water on it weslls and applies pressure to push out whatever is in there. they cost about 8.00 and you can buy them at lowes or home depot. just tell them what you need and that it screws onto the end of a hose for unclogging backed up drains. im not sure whats its called but they will know

first of all make sure water water is shut off to washer,you can take the handels off take the nut off that holds the valve in place there you find either a rubber groumet or o ring replace that put back together should fix your problem.

SOURCE: I have just bought a
Ok I suspect you have a broken lid switch. Swing up the controls and first check the water level switch for: pinch tubing. tubing not connected, blow out the sediment in the tubing from when you moved the machine. Make sure that tubing is tight on the switchNext check the lid switch connectionLook for it to be plugged into the lid switch on the case of the washer. In my hand there is 3 wires to that switch 2 hot wires and one green ground wire. Jump them 2 hot wires and see if it will spin or pump out. How to swap out that lid switch:
