Front right would most likely be the discharge pump. Here's a diagram:

Sounds like you could have a pump problem or a loose hose. First, go ahead and clean the drain pump filter (as per instructions in the Use & Care Manual). Screw it back in tightly to see if that resolves the issue.

If not, check this posting for how to run a diagnostic test: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part

Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes. At the bottom of that posting is a link to the code definitions with problem resolutions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9556917-ge_model_wcvh6800j_error_code_04

If you don't get any error codes and all tests run correctly, open the front access panel and see if you can figure out where the leak is originating from (To remove the panel: undo three screws and lift from the bottom).
Please post back once you either have codes or have located the leak source...then we can troubleshoot more.

Good evening, I have eight 2004 Lincoln navigator. I was out-of-state with it yesterday when for no apparent reason, I noticed the right front and lower than the rest of the vehicle. I turned the vehicle...


you have a sensor attached to the air spring that is probably either not attached properly or is hanging up in the open position-they also have o rings that can and do leak, which is a very common problem. While you do not have a air ride light yet, catch this issue early or you will be replacing the compressor, which is very expensive. There is also the possibility that your air spring on that side has developed tiny cracks that are causing a leak in the bladder and the only cure for that will be replacing it-the life of those bags is about 8 to 10 years, so you should not (yet) have this as an issue, but I thought I'd throw that in as a possibility since the can go bad.

LAT 7793 ABL model number. Washer leaking during fill...? a seal or gasket but not sure how to remove the spin bars to access it


On Your washer to locate a leak, remove the front panel first. Should be two clips at the bottom of front panel, use a putty knife to pry them down while pulling lower of front panel forward (older models used two screws right through front panel on left and right sides). After getting both lower clips loose, pull bottom of front panel forward to remove from top.
Set front panel aside and then use a 3/8" socket or nut-driver to remove two screws (one each) in the front right and left corners that secure the top to the side panels of the washer (inside in front corners going upwards). After screws are removed slide machine away from the wall about 8-10" and lift front of top up. Will pivot up like the hood on a car. This will allow you to examine machine for leaks.
Let me know when you come up with leak location if you need any more help!!

Dish washer, Water leaks out of right front corner during first


it sounds like your machine is over filling. the gasket is not supposed to be under water. check the overflow float inside. it looks like a little hat or cone. it should move freely up and down. if it is stuck down, your machine will fill up too far and then leak. good luck

My 91 honda accord is leaking antifreeze underneath by the right front passenger side dont know where it is leaking from?


probably your lower rad hose. shine a flashlight around underneath and see if you see it reflecting off of a liquid trail, that will tell you where the leak is coming from. you can also get leak tracer to add to your coolant that will leave a more visible sign.

Water is leaking out of the machine Im not quite sure where from.I guess pouring out would describe it better .It`s not coming from the door.


leaks are usually from valve /dispenser area on top left or from door boot. to check valves open top cover by removing 2 or 3 torx/ 1/4' screws at rear and slide back. check underside of dispenser for cracks, check rubber hose connecting valves to dispenser.
to open front and check around boot, remove top cover, remove screws beside dispenser opening (remove drawer) snap control console off starting at dispenser side. On older non teardrop front disconnect and remove interface cables from ccu at rear (ribbon cable in clips on right side. On new teardrop models remove teardrop by unsnapping at top then work down carefully, then unclip console starting at left, disco cables at right side of interface. remove lower kick panel with 3 screws on bottom. then remove 2 front panel screws. remove 2 door lock asm screws and spring clip around boot, then 2 front panel top screws. panel comes right off, carefull of boot. door lock stays behind.

Land rover Discovery 2004, rear right hand side down 2 inches


If you have the coil spring suspension, then your spring for that corner has really sagged[doubtful] I suspect you actually have the rear air suspension ,and the air spring for the Right/Rear has lost air, allowing the rear end to lower down greatly. Usually, you need a new air spring when one develops a leak. You may or may not be able to see the leak with a spray solution of soapy water after the spring is removed for inspection. Sometimes you have to apply about 20psi of air pressure into the spring to inflate it a bit, then put the spring under water in a big enough tank/tub of water to catch the leak that way.
