The hose that drains the machine is spilling out water. Is there some kind of blockage in the line caused by detergent??? The plumber snaked the line but water is still spilling out of the drain pipe.

Water is backing up out of the drain pipe. I snaked the pipe and it doesn't appear to be clogged. Is there possibly anything wrong with the washer. Samsung VRT Model WA45H700AW/A2

Sounds like your drain pipe is not vented correctly. If not the water is fighting against the gas, and preventing flow. A lot of people think that a sewer pipe can run directly from the sewer but that's not how it works.

Water pressure to washing machine

Either there is a blockage or possible the pipe has collapsed internally. You may be able to clear the blockage if you can get hold of a long plumbers snake and feed it through the pipe.

My Whirlpool Duet Sport Frontloading Washing Machine is spilling out water from the place where you put in the detergent. What could be the cause and how do I fix it?

it is a drain blockage. in the back of the washer on the top are 3 bolts they are size 1/4 in. Remove them. slide of the cover off. reach down over the drum and find the drain hose. pull it out and find the blockage. replace the hose and it should be fine.

This is a job for a plumber unless you have a ladder. The vent pipe may be plugged or the trap in the toilet may be plugged up but this requires removing the toilet from the floor which is not that hard. two floor bolts and and turn off the water valve and disconnect the water hose then lift the toilet up and see if there is blockage by poring a gallon of water into the drain pipe. if it backs up you need to snake out the main line. You can rent a electric 25 foot snake for 35 bucks but then you have to reinstall everything plus buy a new wax ring which is about 5 bucks. if the pipe is clean and drains fine then you need to run water into the toilet outside to clear the throat of the toilet if there is no blockage then the vent pipe may be plugged and that you have to get from the roof. Best bet is call a plumber.

If I do a small load after a large load, on the rinse cycle teh water gushed up through the drain in the floor and floods the floor. The plumber snaked 50 feet twice and poured down acid and it still

Since the plumber snaked 50 feet, one must conclude that the blockage is beyond the 50 foot mark.

Shame on the plumber who stopped at 50 feet. he should have snaked all the way to the street system if you live in a city or to the septic tank if you live in the country.

I would call him back and tell him that he needs to finish the job.

Maytag floods when it drains

If the flooding is from hose and joint in the drain system, or from the drain pump, then it is the machine.

If instead, as it looks, it is a return from the drain pipes on the wall, then the problem concerns your house drain line, in that case it is a plumber job.

Ensure that the leak is not from inside the machine, if it is not anything from the machine, then call the plumber.
