You may have interrupted the drain cycle so you may need to empty all the water out to reset sensor.maybe move machine to w/h door and lower the drain hose outside until most of water is removed then start wash again from scratch. Or your out of balance switch activated if you tilted the machine, if so reach in the back at top of bowl and you should find a lever arm, jiggle gently back and forth then try the machine again.

Loud Bang at End of Spin Cycle; Leak Underneath Washer


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Check for tips on the link below to identify parts and removal:

Also check on the SEAL on the door and drum, it can also be worn out and reposition the drum to move out which can result in the noise when the spin is activated.

MY front load washer is leaking from under the washer. I have tried doing the monthly cleaning as it states in manual but this has done nothing.


There are several possibilities--the rubber seal between the cabinet doorway and the outer drum may be pulling loose or is punctured in some way. If the cabinet has a removable lower panel on the front, take it off and inspect the pump, the water hose from the drum to the pump, and the drain hose that runs from the pump out the back to the house drain for any possible leaks. If the leak occurs when the tub is filling with water, the hose that runs from the water inlet solenoids to the tub may be split or pulling loose. Open the cabinet top to check this. Hope this helps!

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washer


sounds like a broken hose ( drain hose ) -- or a loose fitting.
this could also be a cracked mixer valve ( if the water is running when washer is off ).
if you remove the back panel and start the machine and run cycles then you should see the cause of the leak very quickly.

Whirlpool washer LCE4332PQ1 leak underneath.


it sounds like that a pipe as become loose or corroded or the pump housing as perished you could take the back off and watch what is happening but mind your hands as the washer machine has many moving parts and elec parts as long as you don't put your hands anywhere near it when the back is of you will be fine but always unplug the machine before you do any work

Hi! I have a Gibson Front Load washer, manufactured by Frigidaire I believe, Model # GWT645RHSO. It is leaking from below the drum. I opened the back for a better view of where the leak was coming...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. It is either leaking from drain pump joint or the drain pump has developed a crack. You'll need to remove the drain pump for any cracks or loose connections. Please see the steps to remove the drain pump---
Use a shop vacuum to **** all the water through the drainhose. Remove the bottom front panel held by two screws on bottom and twoplastic pins at the top. Locate drain pump in front right. Removedelectric connector on front of pump. Remove two screws holding pump down. Usedpliers to move spring clips back so hoses could be removed. Put hoses on newpump and squeeze the clamps with pliers to pull them back over the hoseconnection. The connection on the left will cause a little pain due to spacelimitations. Now put the screws back on the pump after checking and reconnectthe electric plug. Put the bottom cover back on and screw it into place.

This schematic will help you--

Water Everywhere


Look for loose, cracked, pinched, broken hoses to and from the water pump or leaks from the water pump itself. The outer drum could have a rust-through that leaks. This can be repaired with epoxy, but the inner drum must be removed to access it. The cabinet top is opened by using a putty knife or similar tool to push straight back under each front corner which releases a spring latch. Sometimes, the drain hose outlet is pushed from the house drain by high water flow. Tie the hose to the drain with tape or cord. Fill the tub with water, then stop the cycle and watch for leaks.

I suggest you remove the front of the washer and observe the base of the drum and all hoses while in operation, using a flashlight attempt to find the source of the leak. **USE CAUTION!** Moving parts, water and electrical components present a very real hazard! If you have a top loading washer which agitates the clothing back and forth, one possible cause is the transmission. There is an internal locking mechanism which sometimes fails and will not engage, allowing the drum to continue to spin in one direction. The water will rise as the drum gains speed until it reaches the overflow outlets at the upper portion of the drum. These overflow outlets allow the water to spill out inside the bottom of the washer and out onto the floor. To check this, run the washer with the lid open (to do so, use a plastic or dry wooden stick [something non-conductive] to push down and hold the safety interlock switch closed) if the washer does not agitate back and forth and only spins in one direction you have a transmission problem. JUST BE CAREFUL WHEN OPERATING WITH THE INTERLOCK BYPASSED AS YOU WILL HAVE EXPOSED MOVING PARTS! If you feel any hesitation or concern about doing this...STOP!!, get someone comfortable or certified to do this type of work. While it is not difficult to do these things, there are risks and a momentary distraction can be painful, disfiguring or deadly. In this case, a repairman can be cheaper than a trip to the emergency room. You be the judge of your own skills and abilities.

Good Luck
