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,
ngafm

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

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:

My maytag epic z is leaking from underneath


Remove the front bottom panel. Should be three 1/4" screws on bottom lip of panel. See if you can tell where leak originated. Chances are good you just need to pop the cap off the drain pump and clean it out. Here is a vid that explains the procedure.

Hot point wm vlsr1090g3ww leaking


Is this a top loading machine? Are you seeing water flowing through the overflow or are you thinking that may be your problem? Asking because I've personally never had a prob with that tube. Leaks have always been attributed to other causes. Top loading hotpoint leaks are usually caused by a leaking transmission seal, water drain pump, inlet valve or faulty pressure switch. Need more info sorry.

Three times we have had problems with our drain pump and coins making it through. Once the coins made a hole in the intake hose. The last two times the coins went through the pump and the impact cracked the pump housing causing a flood in our laundry room. The sevrvice man advised there was no solution to the coin problem other than making sure you check your pockets thoroughly.

If all connections were dry, the water may have overflowed the top of the tub during a spin /rinse cycle. That could happen if there was a lot of water (i.e. set for large load) and a small amount of clothes.
