Question about Hotpoint WMA54 Front Load Washer
A leak at the back of a washing machine can come from several sources.
It requires a good investigation.
Here are some of the first area to look at that are on the outside of the machine
1 Hot and Cold Fill Hoses may not be tight enough. So water can drip down the hose, or back of machine onto the floor
2 Drain Hose-Usually about an inch or so in diameter. Hose in new machines should not leak itself, but if it is not mounted or attached well enough into the drainage plumbing mounted on the wall (The box with the Hot and Cold Water Shut-offs, it will leak or splash water onto the floor during the drain cycle.
3 Damaged plumbing in the wall can seep under the wall and end up under the washer. This is very rare, but I have seen it.
4 There is a filter mounted behind a panel on the lower back side of the machine. It is possible a leak is occurring from that area. Take off the cover and see.
If the above don't handle it, the next step is for what is not easy to detect. Leaks inside the machine. You will need to go into it and LOOK with your eyes and a good flashlight.
Hope this helps,
