Hi Alan.Just read your posting.Now the water on the lip of the cabinet when the machine is laying on its side is from the tank so this will not be the leak.This water on the lip happens every time I tip a machine over on its side.If you have checked the inlet hoses and the black drain hose (when the machine is draining the water) and the inlet solenoids (by removing the top panel and viewing them fill) then I think the only other place is your main tank seal is faulty.Try a wash cycle and after the machine has finished its cycle the look under the machine by leaning it up against the back wall and look towards the center.You will see a round bowl that is colored gray.This is your motor.Now with a torch see if there is any water on it or around it.This should tell you if it is leaking throe the main seal.Has you machine been noisy on the spin cycle?Please reply with additional information on the water on the motor (if any) and whether you have checked all the hoses and solenoids as described.Looking forward to your reply.

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Look for obvious vacuum hoses broken,squished or off. Check at egr valve, dpfe sensor & solenoid. These are all common to go bad. If not obvious take carb cleaner with snorkel attached, spray intake manifold & hoses etc. If idle raises while spraying you located vacuum leak. The propelent in the can temporarily seals leak while its being sprayed. Be careful not to spray on wires or anywhere there is a spark.

I have a GWL11 washer that has a small water leak that appears to be clean water. I looked underneath and couldn't see where it was coming from.


Sometimes water can leak from the hoses where they join the taps and/or the water inlet valves..Check for leaks by running you hands along the hoses and unions. Or there may be a problem inside the area behind the display panel...Unplug at wall and remove the 2 screws at rear of display panel. You may have to remove the lid by sliding it upwards while on the open (vertical) position..sometimes the mixer box leaks where the temperature sensor probe connects...Good luck...Nomess

Washer leaking water while spinning


Check the drain hose where it leaves the machine, if the square section of it is not in the plastic housing it will cut on the cabinet, if this has happened replace the hose they are difficult to repair, Other possibilities, pump is leaking, and check that the inlet hoses are not leaking and have washers in every connection.

Check the solenoids at the valve. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter to check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I'll attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washing Machine always floods after turning on water. There's a leak when i turn on the water.


Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure the screens are there and that they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. If this not where the leak is occurring, please let me know. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Leaking water


If you cannot see the water leaking from the inlet valves, check the seal just above the water pump located directly under the drum. I am in the midst of awaiting parts to fix this very thing on my FP GWL11. This leak is dripping water directly onto the motor, causing it to trip the circuit breaker during drain/spin cycles.

Note... I have also had to have the inlet valve assembly replaced as well as it was not opening to allow cold water to mix with the hot.

Hope this helps.
