Had same problem and had sears tech out. Lines attach to housing with what he called pinch gasket instead of threaded coupling. Had to replace filter housing as gasket can't be purchased seperately.
Housing $50 gasket probably would have been $.50.

Filter housing or the lines that are connected to the housing
have had a few of the lines that split i know it is hard to see under the fridge but you can remove the filter housing and unbolt the water valve from the rear of the ref and wangle thelines and housing to the rear of the ref to see where the leak is at

Why is my LG front loader leaking from bottom front of washer?


When cleaning the filter you may have dislodged the o-ring seal on the filter unit. Check the condition of the seal or if missing replace it with a new one.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Leak from bottom of fridge


Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.

Front fork seal is leaking


Yep, drain the fork oil, raise the front wheel in the air, remove the front wheel and axle. The nut to remove the lower leg is at the bottom, hidden by the axle. If it still leaks after seal replacement your fork tubes and lower leg sliders are worn out. Reassemble and remove the top fork cap. Pour in the correct cc of fork oil and ride.

Water leaking out onto floor


Scott you are dead right with the drain. If you open the freezer door and look inside at the back in the middle of the plate at the back on the very bottom there is a small hole. This hole goes all the way down through the fridge and then finally to a dish that sits ontop of the compressor via a hose. If any part of this hose is blocked then it will find an easier path which is uually out the front and on the floor. The most likely culprit would be ice. Leave it off for a half a day or so so the ice melts then turn it back on and test it for a week. Do not turn the thermostat up very high otherwise the problem will reoccur.I hope this helps.

Leaks at bottom


look for leaks up at the top by the top hinge.

mine leaks there. apparently a gasket is missing or just not tight enough.

you should see bubbles come out and see water go into the filter cone but some of it leaks down the inside (near the pot inside) and out the bottom of the maker and appears to be leakng from the bottorm.
