Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Hi heeg_mark,

Leaks problem most often occurs when the water tank is not seated properly allowing water to drain out of the tank and into the base. There are alignment pins on the tank that fit into holes in the coffee machine. Make sure this alignment holes are clear of any debris. Coffee beans have been known to make their way into these openings. Please use a flashlight and a small mirror to see down into the alignment holes. You can easily fix this by following the steps below.

1. Please remove the water tank.

2. There is an access opening like a round hole in the base beneath were the tank fits into the machine.

3. Using an absorbent cloth material dry the water through this opening. Please be patient, it can take sometime.

4. Once the water is gone the machine will operate normally again.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have water leaking from the bottom of my waterheater PE50T9A


It is possible that the water heater has a leak at the bottom. They eventually rust out. The valve should be removed if it is leaking and you should replace it. They are cheap. Be sure to use teflon tape to seal it back up

Hi

Please try and remove the cap by turning it clockwise and counter clock wise to remove it. If it doesn't come off then empty the water dispenser and use glue to fix the leak. See this link to see which type of glue should be used--- Glue Usage

A simple thing to check is make sure the round seal is on the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank not sitting loose in then hole that the tank valve goes into. Could be a problem with the flow indictor cap leaking air. Is the top and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the plastic breaks loose and the top will rise enough that it raises the tank so water won't flow. Your pump may be bad.

The demineralzation cartaridge seems to be the issue. Remove it and see it the misting starts. If it does put a hole in the center cylinderical support of the demineralzation cartaridge, the one that fits over the white positioning post that is built into the base of the humidifier. This will allow the cartirdge to sink to the bottom and not interfer with the water tank plunger opening up and filling the base.I opened the hole completly but I think a smaller hole will do.

Water leaking into machine


it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.

If it seems like the tank does not fit in securely, the round gasket that goes around the valve at the bottom of the tank may have come off and actually be in the hole in the bottom of the vacuum base. It looks like it belongs there but you can pull it out with some needle nosed pliers. After you remove it, put it around the valve on the bottom of the tank, then it will fit into the hole again and everything should seal correctly. Mine was not spraying and would not suction well. figured this out and now it works great again.
