    A repairman came for this problem a year ago and said the leak was due to lint blocking the water softener holder. How do I clean the lint out of the softener holder?

    It's really how to get the lint out that is clogging

  • irisblue Aug 17, 2008

    Apparently I have a problem explaining the leak. The front right top corner of washer has a small container for liquid softener. A small hose, about a 1/4 inch in diameter, leads to it. I was told the leak comes from this small container being blocked with lint. How do I get the lint blockage out?

Pull the line or hose loose and take a fine wire and push through the line to try to push the clog on through the line.

Have you check on the housing of the washer if it has hairline cracks or other holes that may cause this? if not then may we have the brand and model of your washer, so we will be able to find out what to check.

looking forward to your reply

I HAVE A LEAK FROM RIGHT BOTTOM OF A SAMSUNG WF448AAP/XXA-000 FROMT LOAD WASHER ONLY HAPPENS DURING RINSE CYLCE


Hello Harlan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your drain hose is in the back on the right hand side. This is a rubber hose. After a time the rubber may be dry rotted and leak or become partly clogged with soap residue.

Once completing the wash cycle the soapy water may have not completely drained due to a partly clogged drain hose by the time the rinse cycle is complete flooding the washer drain pan.

You do not have water in the bottom of the washer because your pump removed it all, but at a slower rate

Ok, Lets fix this ourselves:

1.) On the bottom right front of your washed is a leveling leg.
turn the leveling leg one full turn clockwise. The right front may be pitched down, causing the drain pan level on this corner to be high. Your washer through vibration may have moved slightly. This is not going to solve the problem.

2.) Pull your washing machine out so you can see the drain hose. Run some laundry on heavy load. Observe to see if your drain hose is leaking. Your hose clamps may be loose and require tightening. If it is leaking it needs to be replaced.

3.) Even if your drain hose is not leaking it must be obstructed, flooding the bottom of your unit. This is easily replaced.

The part number for your drain hose is DC97-12534D. It cast about $24.00.

Water leaks on floor from my p25 washer.


This is a common problem with Malber. On the lower right hand corner, there's a door with a lint filter. This filter needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Be careful when removing the filter. It has a large rubber gasket that expands when it's installed and tightened and will offer some resistance when removing. When the filter becomes clogged, water backs up and forces it's way out through the filter.

The washer will not wash all


Brand of washer, model; front-loader? You can try this:

FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Where can I clean lint out of GE front-loader washing machine


You don't give the model number, so I can not know for sure. That being said, on newer front load GE washers there is a filter access right on the lower side of the very front of the machine. On many slightly older GE front load washers you will have to take the lower portion of the front panel off to find a filter access. On them, it is usually a bit to the right side, about an inch and a half round removable plug with filter attached. Be advised that when you take it out the remaining water from inside the machine and it's pump and hoses will also come out, so be prepared.

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.

Washer/limt trap clogging causing over flowing


Your machine has a trap, i dont understand the trap in the wall. The standpipe in the wall should be free of anything, which allows the free flow of waste water from the machine; to discharge water at a fast rate.

Plug off the wall, locate the trap -front bottom right side of the machine, unscrew, clean out, be prepared for some water. Refit. The pump-out tube into the wall should be at a particular height, about 3 fee from the ground. And dont push the tube too far into the standpipe.
