Look under the washer and see if the leak comes from a faulty drain valve/pump or from a loose hose clamp. If so remove clean - back-flush or tighten the hose clamp.
it is possible that the drain valve is clogged as you mentioned the hose to be dry and so the water seems to collect here and leak.

Leaking washer, increases when using cold, less when using hot. May be at drain?


Stop the washer and clean up the water. Confirm that the water is not leaking when the washer is off. The leak can occur before the electric valves either where the hose connects or from the electric solenoid valves just inside the washer. The situation is more likely true if the hoses are stressed by being bent to one side.

If dry then confirm if it is the hot or cold by running the machine with the cold service valve open and hot closed.

Dishwasher only wants to drain


With my Bosch Evolution 500 series, this problem was caused by water in the washer's sub pan tripping the leak detector float switch. The water came from a hose leaking at the connection to the sump body (white plastic "bowl" in center of dishwasher). Remove water (wet/dry shop vac) and should work. Obviously, the leak must be fixed. Probably oring on hose that needs replacement. Remember to lubricate oring with silicone grease.

Leaking water from under the washer, the hoses are all dry at the connections. leaks immediately when filling the washer,


There is no way to know until you take the back off the washer. It could be a connection inside the back, the pump, or a plastic hose connecting to the pump etc. Knowing if it is a top or front loading washer might help to diagnose as well.

Leaks water out of bottom


hi friend,
1washingmachine2_thumb.jpg
Evidently you have reason to believe your washer is leaking. Probably there is water on the floor near the machine. Fine, then the first thing is some detective work. with an absorbent hand towel begin to inspect the areas where water enter or leave the washer. Those places are: 1. the hot and cold water inlet hoses located in the back and top of the machine and 2. the washer drain line, located in the back and bottom of the machine.
  • Step 2 One at a time, dry both ends of the hot and cold water hoses. watch for water to bead up. Water may be leaking from more than one place so don't stop with the first leak you find. Inspect all four possible connections and the hose itself. If there is a leak at a hose connection it's an easy fix. shut off the water supply of the leaking hose, unscrew the hose where it leaks and wrap Teflon tape clockwise around the threaded or male part of the connection. inspect the flat rubber washer in the female part of the connection. replace if it seems very worn. re-tighten the connection, dry and turn the water back on. check for the leak to return. If the leak in somewhere on the hose itself you will need to buy a new hose. Hot and cold water hoses are marked.
  • Step 3washingmachine3_thumb.jpg Next we need to check the hose where water drains from the washer. It comes from the washer near the floor level and usually inserts a male into the female of the washer hole. It then moves to the drain leaving the house. Again, dry the entire hose. Then you will have to run the washer. Use flashlight and inspection mirror to help you look for a leak during the draining process. If it leaks at the connection to the washer try reinserting and tightening the retaining screws. There usually are no threads to wrap. If that doesn't fix the leak or if you find a leak in the hose itself you will need to replace it.
  • Step 4 If you still have a leak under the washer it is probably in the drain hose between the drain pump and the outside hose or the short hose between the tub and the drain pump. This may be getting out of your level of competence. But if you want to be a Renaissance Man, give it a try.
    Unplug the machine. Now you need access to the bottom of the machine. depending on your brand you may be able to 1)remove the front by inserting a painters scraper and prying the spring snaps up, 2)remove the back by taking out screws and the rear plate or 3)you may have to go in through the bottom. With help tip it over on it's side. of course the machine will need to be empty of clothes and water as it's heavy enough already.
  • Step 5 However you access the inside bottom of the machine you will see a rubber hose coming down from the tub to a small electric drain pump then a plastic line will leave the pump and go to the back of the machine where it will meet up with the drain line you inspected in step 2. With your inspection mirror and flashlight look for water to indicate a leak. These lines are often held on by metal springs and can be moved or adjusted with open jaw pliers. If you find one of these hoses damaged take it off and bring it with you to your appliance store for a replacement.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • take digital photos before you remove any part. if you get confused you can use it as reference
    • don't work on the inside of the washer with it plugged in.

    Only driver side power window will go up and down from driver side on our daughter's '03 Hyundai Sonata. Can power down some others, but not back up. Back driver's side only works from that door. Also,...


    It sounds as though the switch in the drivers door is bad or you have a possible bad connection in the harness.
    For the washer fluid, check the tank and hose for leaks. The hose may be dry rotted. It may be easy to spot the leak if you observer both the tank and hose while someone activates the washer

    Washer is leaking when draining...


    Ok..so you checked al the hoses.. do you mean ALL the hoses inside the washer? or outside the washer.. chances are one of the hoses broke free durin the violent spin cycle of that over-sized rug.. and you haven't found it yet. If you have sufficient room to extend the washer out from the wall.. gain access to the inside of it from the back.. then check each and wvery hose connection/clamp to make sure they are secure.. also.. look at the pump assemby to make sure it isn't the source of the leak..then if nothing is obvious,, watch for leaks by using a flashlight and examining everything you can while it fills the tub.. Leaks are normally the easiest thiong to zero in on.. and ... try to have a few towels or wet/dry vac handy during all this.. Hope this helps...

    Washer leaking water on floor


    Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.
