Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Hi, our washing machine started leaking water underneath just the weekend gone. I didnot see where the water was coming from but my wife tells me that she started the washing machine as per normal as always. She then left it to fill & attended other choirs that she had to do. It was approx 20-25 minutes later she decided to go check the washing machine to see if it had finished its normal washing cycle only to find water everywhere on the floor hallway & bedroom. She says that the dial selector was on finished cycle & when she opened the lid there was still water inside the washer bowl. Water was still leaking beneath the washing machine at this time so she quickly turned of the water taps on the wall & then turned the dial selector to spin dry to pump the water from the washing machine. The washing machine started to pump the water out into the tub so it was obvious the pump was still working. It also spun dryed as per normal too. Could you tell me what the problem is with this washing machine, your reply would be appreciated. Regards Fred...

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end. You have indicated that the spin was activated to drain off and so the drain exit seems good . Hence I would advice that you check the drain hose fittings and drain pump. Check once again to confirm if this was a program controller malfunction of the cycle. finally keep your machine in slight slant /tilt so that the water drains off fully to the exit valve.

Maytag washing machine leaking


it could be coming from different sources. Most likely is the hose. You might need to replace hoses that bring water to the machine, but first check that they are not loose or have cracks that could cause these leaks to occur.

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

Washing machine leaking water from underneath


It is possible it is just a loose hose or it could mean your trmp or the tub itself is leaking. I would try going to the back of the machine and take off the bottom panel.and take off the back panel. After removal start it and observe where the leak is happening.

Leaking during wash from underneath


There is a possibility that the drain pump is leaking, may be the rubber gasket in the drain pump has gone bad. You can open the back panel of the machine and check if the water leaks just when the drain pump starts to drain out the water.

Washer leaking water from underneath


Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
