SOURCE: water leaking from my whirlpool frontload washer

open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.

SOURCE: washer is leaking, but I dont know why

Hello, the most likely cause is the pump. Whirlpools are direct drive machines which means they do not have a belt2.gif. The pump is hooked up directly to the motor. To confirm this is the pump tip the machine back so that you can access it underneath. Make sure you wedge something underneath so it does not fall on you. Next take a look where the pump joins onto the motor shaft, this is where you will find the leak. This pump is a sealed unit so you will have to replace the whole pump. You can do this by removing the inlet and outlet pipes. Next with a screwdriver release the 2 clips holding the pump and remove the pump.....reassemble with new pump in reverse order. Good Luck!! If you have any further question's please feel free to comment. Mike

SOURCE: Hi there... My Whirlpool Duet washer has recently

I had the exact same problem on my Whirlpool front loader (model# GHW9100LW1). It turned out to be a tear in the rubber drain hose (from tub to pump). There seemed to be some debris caught up in the drain hose, and what really did the damage was a piece of metal wire that broke off one of my wife's bra straps and made a nice tear in the hose. The washer leaked out of the left side as well and down the pedestal. The drain hose only ran about $13.00. To get to the hose you will have to remove the front tub seal (bellow) and the panel just above the pedestal. While you're in there it would be good to clean out the filter cap for the drain pump as well. Good luck!

SOURCE: leaking water from the bottom front

There can be many sources of leaks in a washing machine. In order to accurately determine the cause, you will need to remove the exterior washer case on this model to inspect the internal components. The following link explains how:

Why is it leaking water towards the end of the wash cycle?

It could be a pump leak that occurs only when a large amount of water is being removed.

My whirlpool frontload washer does not have enough water to wash or rinse properly

1. do you have limescale in your source water, if yes you need to clean your machine with a special product that can be found in the market.
2. pressure sensor is broken
3. inlet filter is dirty you can unscrew the inlet pipe and look for a small filter and clean it.

Cannot find the exact machine i have which is WFS1073CD but this one looks similar. Red light is on to say clean pump, where is pump?The book we have is not in english

Your machine should have a lower front panel attached below the door. This would be a full width panel that goes from the floor up to almost the bottom of the door. Unplug the machine. Remove this panel with 3 or 4 screws. The pump is behind this panel, facing forward. The pump has a twist plug clean out. Use a shallow baking pan to catch the small amount of water that will come out of the pump when you open the twist plug. After cleaning the pump, assembly is the reverse of what you just did.

Good luck.

Water leaks from bottom of door

I had the same problem and it would leak huge amounts of water all over the floor.  After having a repair person out 5 times.  It was supposedly a fault that the seals on the door needed to be replaced.  My washing machine leaked from brand new.  It does leak from time to time but no where near what it use to.  Hope this helps!
