Hose leak connection drain hose to washer


Seems peculiar to me there's so much pressure on a drain hose. Are you pumping to a drain much higher than the top of the washer?

Just pumping water out of a drain hose shouldn't create much pressure unless the hose is kinked or restricted. Look for that problem first. You could get a hose clamp from an auto parts store that's much more reliable than the spring clamps you're describing. I would try that on the inside and outside connection and see if it solves the problem.

My whirlpool washer is leaking from the front center. Happens during spin cycle I think.


Hello.

If your washing machine is leaking, don't rush out to buy a new one just yet. Sometimes simple repairs to the machine can fix the leaks saving you hundreds of dollars and days of shopping for and installing a new one. Luckily, you don't have to be a master electrician to do repairs. These steps will walk you through the basics of fixing a washing machine.
Bellow are Instructions on how to solve the problem of leaking washing machine

    • 1 Look at the floor drain to make sure it isn't clogged. Sometimes it's not even the washing machine, but the drain causing those puddles of water on the floor. Unclogging the drain can be an easy and quick fix.
    • 2 Inspect the hoses for leaks or wear and tear in certain spots. Filling the washing machine may help identify any leaks or faulty hoses. If hoses are worn, replace them with non-burst stainless steel mesh hoses.
    • 3 Check the fittings of the existing hoses to the faucet fixtures and on the back of the washing machine. Sometimes a loose connection is the cause for the leaks. Tighten couplings and hose clamps if necessary to fix the leaks.
    • 4 Replace internal washers inside of the hoses if not replacing the entire hose. Something as small as a rubber gasket can create a lot of water damage. Use a screwdriver to pop the worn washer out and replace it. Repeat replacing washers on the other end of the hose.
    • 5 Examine internal components by opening the cabinet and starting the fill cycle to see if anything is leaking internally. Calcium deposits and rust may be evident around areas that have leaks.
    • 6 Use hose clamp pliers to remove any corroded spring clamps and replace them with new ones. Make sure the hose is still intact underneath the old clamp. If not, remove the internal hose and take it to an appliance repair center to find the correct replacement part.
Thanks.

Water leaking onto passenger side floorboard,soaking the carpet


Your heater core has developed a leak - the wetness on the passenger side carpet is engine coolant
from a heater core leak, or a leak in one of the two hoses connected to the back of the heater core.
Your strategy: disassemble dash down to heater core, determine whether you'll need a new heater
core or new hose (or new hose clamp), then replace the offending part.

I purchased a new washing machine, Samsung SW50V3WFP, this is top loading washing machine. Problem: Water is draining out from the machine from drain hose, I cant fill water in machine to wash after...


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 occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is 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.

Dish washr


Can you access the drain hose without moving the dishwasher out? Is it close to the garbage disposal. You probably have a plugged drain. I would begin by plugging the sink that the garbage disposal is in and filling it full of hot water. Then I would unplug it and turn on the disposal and continue running water in it. This should clean the disposal drain well.

If you can access the dishwasher drain hose, you will need to disconnect it and look for a plug. If you can unplug the dishwasher do this first. It may be hardwired in, but some are not. It will all be behind the adjacent cabinetry. Have towels and a bucket handy. It is a good idea to always run some water through the disposal after running the dishwasher (they usually drain into that sink.)


If you cannot access the drain, I would clean the disposal and check all other household drains for slow drainage before calling a plumber. or your dishwasher repairman.


Good luck to you and thank you for using Fix Ya.

Karcher k7.80 pressure washr


I have a Karcher K 3.86 M electric PW with a similar problem: water leaks from the pump near the outlet and the pressure surges on and off continuously at intervals of 1-2 seconds. The leak appears to be coming from a very thin crack in the plastic pump head in what I think is the "unloader" valve portion. I read elsewhere that if you leave water in these PW's and it freezes it will crack, causing leaks. I don't know how you can empty all the water out so I think we must store these PW's in areas that won't freeze in winter.
