Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Our washer recently began leaking when it empties. I've checked the hoses, the hose connections, etc. What else can I check? Is there something else to look for? Or is it time for a new machine?

I have a miele w526 wash machine .water leaked out under neath machine and 2 lights on side came on .check inlet and check drain .i turned it off removed clothes and tilted it forward and more water was...


In the bottom of your machine the is a tray in the tray the is a float, if the machine leaks the float lifts and hits a switch activating the two light on the facia. The is a leak either in the machine (sump hose) or around the machine drain etc. By tipping the machine you are emptying the tray thus allow it to work. You will need to find the cause of the leak. My best guess is the sump hose has been damaged by hair clip or pin. You may need to remove front panel to check hose etc.

How to troubleshoot water leaks


Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

-
Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

- Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

- Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

- Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

- Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

- Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

- Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

- Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

- Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

Hoover Dishwasher HD95M leaks on start up from bottom right front corner. Leaks when initially being fed from water feed.


Water leaking can be poor plumbing or fault in the inlet hose connection. You are the first observer and so your view on the leak area is important as the leak can be from the hose, from the inlet, the hose or the washer unit.
Based on this the water leak can be plugged, tighten the hose clips, check the inlet filter or check the washer's feed line.

Windshield washer hose is leaking under the fender. Do I have to romove the fender to replace the hose?


Hi,
Don't spend your time removing something that is not relevant to the problem.
The hose can be pulled easily from underneath of that washer reservoir.
First thing is to find out why the washer fluid leaks, look for the cause of the leak.
If the leak is in the reservoir, just remove the reservoir and check it.
If the problem is in the hose line, remove the hose from the "Y" connection between the two washer nozzle and pull the hose from the main outlet of the tank washer.

Hope that clears up everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!

My washer is leaking where I cannot see it. It is not coming out the exit spout, where would I began to look internally.


first make sure you unplug it then check the hose in the back where it connect to the washer in the back the discharge hose make sure the clip is on tight. if that's good could be the hose came loose from pump.
does it only leak when it's drains is so check the hose in back first while it's draining if not the pump hose would be my guess

Mold and smell from Maytag washer


The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.

Noise when draining


U will find the filter by removing the lower rear panel of the m/c.
Locate the large black hose at the right side, and remove clip securing hose. Get some thing ready to catch any water that will be in there, and remove hose.
There u will see the filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose,making sure that u get the hose on properly, test for leaks before u put the panel back on.
U will find this much easier to do if u tilt the m/c forward, and support it with something underneath.. Check inside the pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.

Thanks.

Kenmore washer leak


With the machine unplugged and EMPTY disconnect the water and waster water connection from the wall and tip it forward you should then be able to access the pump.  Check the hoses running to the pump. (usually white plastic with 2 large and 1 small hose running to it.. you can also just move it away from the wall with it completely connected and run it thru a cycle to see where it is leaking from.
