hello. i can help you. unfortunately, your problem has numerous possible causes.
Your washer can develop several
types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: During fill onlyDuring drain and spin
During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the
fill cycle, check these:
During drain and spin
- Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that
prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply.
It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that
comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one
of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
- The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and
either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a
- Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main
clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks
free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
A washer that leaks only during the
spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and
correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can
rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and
high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer
tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified
appliance repair technician for further details.
All the time
If the washer leaks all the time,
- Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the
household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as
- Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and
the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the
transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by
opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water
with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the
outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You
probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
- Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is
full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached
to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking,
you need to replace it.
- Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or
be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but
that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance
repair technician for further details.
