My 4 yr old Whirlpool Duet front load washer is leaking water onto the floor from the bottom of the machine. It seems to be coming from underneath or back, it is not coming through the door. It's not...


The most frequent place for a front-loader to leak is on the door connector boot. The boot connects the drum to the door. You can often remove it and replace it upside down and that will give you a few more months' use.

Water leak in floor


orIs the water coming from above the floor(front or side windows)(is the puddle big) or from underneath the floor(slowly spreads)? I think you have a lot of water coming in from a leaky window gasket, most probably in the front window.

Float switch dripping water onto floor while dishwaser running


You will find that the flood switch will be operating due to the leak, it will most likely be from one of 2 places:
1. Around the door seal, Give it a clean and check for splits/damage, and make sure screws on door hinges are tight.
2. Check the rollers that screw onto the inside of the dishwasher cabinet, The screws on these can come loose and cause water to run down into the base, check they are tight.
Hopefully this helps.

Washing Machine Emptying


Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub.  Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses.  Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath.  Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.

Water leak @ bottom front left with water turned off


this quite simple, inside the freezer compartment lower half there is a removable inspection cover, or what you may call the rear interior wall. remove this cover/wall and underneath the cooling coils is a drain hole for the defrosted water to escape to the pan located under the refrig. This hole is obviously blocked with some object, possibly just ice. As it is blocked the defrosted ice in the form of water cant exit the normal way so it is over flowing onto the freezer floor. everytime the defost element comes on more water will leak. solution is to clear the drain hose possible with hair dryer , or gently running a firm but flexible plastic tube through the drain tube to push any blockage on through. This has to be done very slowly and carefully.

Washer Shaking Violently on Spin Cycle


Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength for leaking issues Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer


I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.
