Washing machine leaking water from underneath

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?
Thank you,
Lori

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.

SOURCE: washing machine leaking at the connection to water pipe.

Hi vks1,

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!
Bless You,

SOURCE: Leak from pipe/wahing machine drain hose

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

Ok I suspect you have a broken lid switch. themobilian_122.jpgSwing 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 switchthemobilian_123.jpgNext check the lid switch connectionthemobilian_124.jpgLook 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:

Did you have a small part of clothing sticking out the door? Water can leak past the door seal on this case. Other than that, run the machine empty u ntill you find the leak location.

My Kenmore 800 series washer leaks from under the front left during the spin cycle. I looked behind it and checked the connections but all seems fine in that area. What could be causing this?


Same problem! Flooded the laundry room and about 1/4 of the basement. Happens randomly, not every load. Checked all hoses, they are snug and don't appear to be leaking at all. During the wash cycle it you can hear it spraying water inside the washer and the floor starts flooding. I bought the washer Sept. 19, 2009 and have had this problem for about 5 weeks now. Sears refuses to do anything about it, because it's no longer under warranty.

Won't shut off machine turns off after a few seconds


You may have a burnt motor. This is usually caused by a clog in the pump. Sometimes small items such as socks find its way to the pump. It could also be the timer itself. If there is a burning smell when that happend it is probably the motor.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

What I would do in this situation is fix the door lock first before I would do another load of clothes. you can go to Kenmore.com put in your model # and download your manual to your machine if you want to fix yourself
or you can call service tech out. I will help you find one in your area if you need.
