Thank you for using FixYa. Does water leak out of the machine from the beggining of the cycle to the end? If it only leaks when spinning or Pumping out water and water comes from the rear bottom of the machine? This is where the drain pump is located and I would say that the leak is coming from there---either a perished hose or a loose retaining clip.

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

SOURCE: WASHING MACHINE LEAKING FROM BOTTOM

Check the two lengths of 1/4" plastic tubing, the long one that runs from the filler at the botton left side of the tub, and the short one that runs from the load switch (water level switch) to the shield assembly (formed plastic cover for the controls). When under pressure, the tubing can come loose from the plastic nipple on either side of the shield, leaking water while the tub is filling. If either length of tubing is detached from the nipple, reattach the tubing and use a 1/4" hose clamp to prevent it from detaching again.

Wow, this washer is very old. im sure the drainage hoses will need to be inspected or replaced asap. i would also check the pump housing for cracks as well. make sure the water inlet valve assembly ins in good condition as well. Replace any hose or valve that is leaking or, damaged.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Water is leaking out of the bottom of washer. It runs the cycle fine


Move the machine away from the wall so that the rear may be accessed. The evacuation hose is below the tub level and there are a couple of hoses to check from the rear area of the machine. If necessary, remove the rear panel with eight or more screws and set aside. Check the hose that evacuates water to the rear hose mount. These two areas may show evidence of the leak. If possible, run a cycle or two with the rear panel off and visually check for the leak(s).

My washer leaks water all the time


If it is leaking all the time while running it could be the drain pump. A coin had made its way into mine and cracked the housing. Itis located towards the right rear of the machine on the bottom, while standing in front of the machine.

There is a leak in the bottom of our washing machine


If the leak is from the front, you will need a pump. If in the rear check the water valve and the inlet hoses. Also if a lg leak check the hose from the pump to the drain grommet. They sometimes split.

Water leaking from the bottom of the washer at the rear right corner!


firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.

My washer is leaking...


Open the rear panel on the washer. Check the 3 rubber hoses connected to the pump. Make sure there are no splits, or a **** in any of them. Also look at the pump and make sure the casing is not cracked and dripping (if coins enter the pump they can crack the casing, causing a leak). If there is a leak in a hose, replace that particular hose. If the pump casing is cracked, replace the pump.
