Hello,

your machine is having a worn out seal, and this is why water is leaking from the from.

You will have to trace where the water is leaking, in order to get to the exact leaking spot. There is a seal there which must have worn out and this is the reason why the water is leaking.

You will have to replace the seal in order to stop the water from leaking. You might have to disassemble the machine to get to the seal and then you can replace the worn out seal.

Apart from the worn out seal, the (water) pump might be defective and needs replacement. Also a bad or rusty hose/pipe can cause water to leak.

Just trace the leaking spot as suggested above and you will know precisely where it's leaking from and necessary replacement can be made.

I hope you understand the above...

Good luck.

My inglis dishwasher is leaking water out of the bottom of the door ftomiski@mts.net


The seal may well be "tired" and no longer seals properly. Get the serial number, make, model etc off the handbook or label on the back and call an appliance spares place or go online.

I just moved and the washer froze while in transport. There is a small leak which means a line froze? If not a line what could it be? Thanks


If your line is not frozen and cracked then it's the water control on the back of your washer where your main water hoses screw into the washer. Check this water control because it is plastic.

My inglis front loader washer is leaking at bottom of the door....inside rubber area near leak feels gummy....any advice??


Scrub the glass on your door and the rubber boot. This works in almost every case. The washer gets a build up of scum on these parts and doesn,t allow a tight seal. In rare instances you have to replace the rubber boot. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Whirlpool Inglis washer super capacity, 8 cycles, 2 speeds. Bought in May 2008. Works well and washes well, but it is VERY loud and seems to be getting louder and now there is a faint rubbery smell when it...


I received an Inglis Washing machine from soneone on freecycle. They thought the belt had broken, doesn't have a belt, it's gear driven. I'd bet the noise you hear is the coupling going out, (rubber). Good luck.

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.
