Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.

Water leak in front left corner of unit. Rusty leveler near strainer.


Is the leak on the same side as the hinges? If yes I'm guessing someone overstressed the hinge when opening the door too widely or by leaning on the open door and the seal is just barely tight enough now. Crack the door open half an inch and eyeball the door gap from top to bottom on the open side to see if the door is unevenly hinged - you can use a ruler to help measure but you need to keep the door immobile while comparing top and bottom gap widths. Tape a hard wedge in place in the doorframe to help with that. Fix for that? Pressure on the door in the right direction to straighten the hinge mount.

Water leaking from door when cold water dispenser being used


Hello Frank,
The line that runs from under the freezer door and connects to the dispenser is cracked or the connector is cracked. By removing the lower hinge cover ya should be able to see where the line connects to the door and see if it seems to be cracked and leaking their,if that connector is good then the line inside of the door is leaking..in some cases depending on brand the line is easily replacable without having to dis-assamble the entire door

Amana SXD23V refrigerator leaks water underneath the side where the refrigerator door is evey time I try to get water out of the dispensor. I found a plastic tube on the floor about an inch long then...


I believe your water line or the union nut just behind the kickplate may have come loose. Lets see if we can find a repair kit and get you going again. Depending on where the line is broken or leaking will depend on just how much you will need to do so if leaking at the union nut please disregard removal of door.
WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock, severe personal injury or death; disconnect power to unit before servicing, unless

testing requires power. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before handling. Wires removed during
disassembly must be placed on the correct terminals to ensure proper grounding and polarization.

1. Open door and remove all storage buckets.

2. Remove toe grille.

NOTE: Shut off water supply before performing Step 3.

Have a bucket ready to catch spillage from tube.

    I will look for your service manual and tell you that first it's most likely a blockage in the defrost condensate line. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a in the defrost pan,
    water leaking and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage.
    Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

    Front loader washer leaks from bottom center of door osmetimes


    Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.

    Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.

    Our fridge door won't close properly


    The door hinges have nylon bushings/washers to help them work smoothly. If the unit is very old and had a lot of use (like a large family) the bushings or washers could be just worn away. This also is indicated if the doors seem to be misaligned. If the doors don't seem out of place, it could just be that the unit is not sitting on a level surface, causing the box to twist and the doors th therefore bind.
    Other possibilities: The door is burdened heavily with the milk, juices, food, etc. and therefore is just plain heavy. You have a "water-thru-the-door" unit and some leak has occurred to fill the door and it's insulation with water. (eww!)
    Check to see that the surface is level, and that the door fits correctly. Make replacements or adjustments as necessary. Lighten the load on the door, or fix the leak.

    If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
