SOURCE: front loading washer leaks

The rubber seal (or bellow) wears with age and will eventually deteriorate over time. Excessive use of detergent, and/or use of the wrong detergent (detergent that is not HE) can contribute to rubber breakdown too. Regular detergent is formulated for washers that use a wash tub with a capacity of 35 gallons. HE detergent is formulated for High Efficiency washers that only use 5 to 7 gallons of water. So, if you place regular detergent in an HE washer, you are (in affect) putting a higher concentration of soap in your washer. This higher concentration of soap can act as a corrosive to rubber and become permeated in your clothing as it does not rinse completely. This can lead to skin irritations as well. It is important that if you are not using HE detergent that you do so in the future to prevent premature breakdown of the rubber seals of the washer and pump. This will also void most manufacturer warranties if it determined you are using improper detergent. Now...I'm not trying to accuse you of abusing your appliance and not trying to lecture you. I'm merely putting this information out, because some people simply do not know. Overloading the washer is another contributor to excessive wear on the bellow as well as not keeping the bellow cleaned properly. Mold and mildew can contribute to the break down of rubber. The following link can give some advice on proper care of the door bellow:

Since your bellow is already leaking, it must be replaced. Replacements can be ordered on line at either searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or pcappliancerepair.com. All these websites offer competitive pricing, so you can shop for the best deals. Just type in your COMPLETE model number to begin your search. The Sears website offers helpful exploded view diagrams to assist in part identification and location. NOTE: You may consider ordering the front and rear bellow clamps if yours are damaged. Refer to the Sears website for pictorial view.

If you need assistance in replacing the bellow, the following link will give you the steps necessary to complete this repair on your own:

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

My top load hotpoint washer leaks in the bottom


You will have to look underneath to locate the point of the leak. If the washer is very old the tub may be rusted through or a hose or clamp could be the problem or a seal is gone.

No water when I start the machine, kenmore he2 front loading automatic washer model 110.46462500


First are the valves open for the water inlet? Next make sure that your hoses are not kinked. (There are some hoses that will seal themselves if they detect a leak, you may want to replace the hoses.) Remove the hoses from the back of the washer and place this free end into a bucket or sink, open the valves and flush lines of any foreign matter. Next clean the screens that are in the washer inlets. Sometimes you can pull these out with pliers for cleaning. Reinstall the screens and then the hoses. Make sure that there are no leaks.

If the above do not help, then the washer inlet valve is probably bad. See the parts diagrams here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11046472500/0582/0153200?sid=MMLxMerchandizexManualsModelx110.46462500x11046472500 (top and cabinent parts)

The manual for the 110.46462500 is available from Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17838/KENMORE-Residential-Washers-L0521458?brand_name_search=110.46462500 .

I hope this helps.

Here are some solutions.


Hope this helps you...Jim...Please leave a comment...Thanks!
LEAKS ALL THE TIME Is your GE washer leaking all the time, even when not in use? If so the problem is the fill hoses or the valve. Look behind the washer to see if water is coming from the hoses. If not, take the cover off to the control panel. Once off, you should see if the water valve and if there is leakage - it needs replacing (if it is leaking). This is the most popular water valve for GE top-loading washers made after 1995 and the part number is WH13X86 Order Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10. Note that some models have a water valve with more than two coils. In this case, you will need to order the valve by model number at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 Buy Fill Hoses Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10
LEAKS DURING FILL CYCLE Is your GE washer leaking during the fill cycle? If so the problem may be in the valve. Follow instructions above, only this time start the fill cycle before looking at the valve.
If your washer overflows with water during fill cycle your problem is the water level control or the water valve. If you must cut the water off from the house plumbing to stop the water then there is no need for testing, just replace the water valve. First, you need to turn on the washer. The washer should start to fill with water, now cut the washer off and on repeatedly (note to yourself whether the water turned off every time). If it does cut off every time you cut the washer off, then it's most likely in the water level control. If it keeps running after you cut the washer off then, the water valve is bad and needs replacing. (Note that the valve can stick intermittently so it still may be bad if it passed the test) Water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
If the water valve doesn't stick in the first test then you need to check the water level control. First, remove the front of washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front pushing on the clips) then look on the side of the tub and you should see a tube attached to a box. Remove the tube (make sure all the water is out of the tub) look in the tube to see if is stopped up. Often it will stop up near the end. If it is, you can clean it out with a toothpick. Once it's clean, reinstall it and your washer is fixed. If the tube is not stopped up reinstall the tube. Now set the water level control on the lowest setting and start filling the washer with water. If the water stops when the tub is approximately half full (this varies with every model) turn it up to the next level (you may have to reset it). Repeat until the tub is full. If at any the water level gets above the last row of holes in the tub, unplug the washer. If the water stops running when you unplug the washer, replace the water level control. If the water doesn't stop, turn the water off at the wall then replace water valve. Water level contorls and water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 . LEAKS DURING WASH Is your GE washer leaking during wash? If so the problem is the tub seal (seals around the transmission where it goes through the tub), drain hoses (including the tub to pump hose) or the pump. First take the front off the washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front, pushing on the clips) then start the fill cycle. Now start watching until you see a leak. If the leak is coming from the tub seal, the transmission needs to be replaced (note that changing the transmission is expensive and takes special tools, so you may consider replacing the washer). If the leak is coming from the drain hose or the pump you need to replace it. If you don't see it leak at all, your soap may be the problem. To check this fill the washer with water and the amount of soap you normally would use. Then start the washer and watch the tube coming from the left back of the tub (the overflow pipe). If soapsuds come out of the overflow pipe then try cutting down on your soap or switch to another brand. This may fix your problem. These parts can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
LEAKS DURING PUMP OUT Is your GE washer leaking during pump out? If so the first thing you should look at is the drainpipe (to your house plumbing). Fill the washer with water, and then turn it to spin and start it. Now while it's pumping, look at your drainpipe if water backs out (it may not back unless you have soap in the tub), then the problem is in your plumbing. If it doesn't, follow the same steps as above in "leaks during wash." Only this time watch for leaks during pump out as well.

Leaking water when washer begins to load water.


Fist place to check is the outlet hose at the back of the machine it will leak as soon as water enters the tub, see if is leaking there, if it is you just have to tighten the clamp . if not there are a few hoses inside of the machine that may need clamps tightend also. The motor is seperated from the water so that wont be leaking. It could also be the electric water inlet valve that is leaking. let me know what you find out !

Remove lower rear cover of washer, locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
remove plastic filter inside hose, and clean same.
Refit filter and hose, making sure it is on properly.
Be careful when you remove the hose, as there will be water in there.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer!


The water is coming out of the dispenser because it is going into spin with water in the drum due to it not draining properly.
So you need to check the filter.
If there is no filter at the front bottom of m/c, then you need to remove the lower rear panel on the m/c, locate the large black hose going to the bottom of the drum, undo the clip[ securing hose and remove hose.
There you will find the filter, remove and clean.
Check the pump at the same time for any obstruction.
Refit hose, making sure you get it on properly.
Test for leaks before fitting back panel.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.
