Whirlpool Cabrio Leaks Water

I have had my washer for less than a year, and it started leaking water underneath. I tightened the hoses, but it still leaks. Not sure what this could be on a new washer.

    omg I had the A&E repair guy out first time because of crazy sounds (coins) which not only didn't get all of them but created a leak! Second time he did nothing to fix either problems! And this was all within the first year of owning them!
    I had a set of Maytag machines that were 40 years old and NEVER had coins get trapped or leaks.... I'm calling the local Maytag headquarters here in town and complain of LEMON!!!!


    thanks!

    I just reached the one year anniversary of my Cabrio washer and it is leaking like mad from the bottom. I don't have any noises coming from the machine to indicate coins/items trapped. From reading these reviews and others I'm beginning to think that there is no hope.

I have replaced 4 pumps in the last year and half because of coins in the pump.

Posted on Nov 17, 2009

I have an 18 month old Cabrio that is leaking underneath and the repair man told us that it needs a new water pump because of coins that have been sucked up.
I consider the machine a lemon, as well. It is impossible to find all coins and I have never had this problem in my 15 and 25 year old machines.

Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!

You probably got coins or junk in the water pump on the bottom back of washer and it poked a hole in the housing. Thats what happened to me

My kenwood kdw1274w is leaking from under it can you help and bit a lot of water


Check your hoses underneath the dish washer. After a while, they sometimes start to leak where they connect to the pump, etc. Also, sometimes they can crack and start leaking. I would replace the hoses, unless they look fine. Then you should just tighten the clamps on the hoses, if you can.

Hoover Dishwasher HD95M leaks on start up from bottom right front corner. Leaks when initially being fed from water feed.


Water leaking can be poor plumbing or fault in the inlet hose connection. You are the first observer and so your view on the leak area is important as the leak can be from the hose, from the inlet, the hose or the washer unit.
Based on this the water leak can be plugged, tighten the hose clips, check the inlet filter or check the washer's feed line.

I had the same problem. I have tried replacing the spring clamp on the drain hose with a regular adjustable hose clamp I got from the hardware store. Not real happy with this situation since I just bought this washer two years ago to replace a previous Kenmore washer that we had for nearly 20 problem-free years.

Leaking


Hi
Please Follow this Instructions:-
Step 1 Look at the floor drain to make sure it isn't clogged. Sometimes it's not even the washing machine, but the drain causing those puddles of water on the floor. Unclogging the drain can be an easy and quick fix.
Step 2 Inspect the hoses for leaks or wear and tear in certain spots. Filling the washing machine may help identify any leaks or faulty hoses. If hoses are worn, replace them with non-burst stainless steel mesh hoses.
Step 3 Check the fittings of the existing hoses to the faucet fixtures and on the back of the washing machine. Sometimes a loose connection is the cause for the leaks. Tighten couplings and hose clamps if necessary to fix the leaks.

Step 4 Replace internal washers inside of the hoses if not replacing the entire hose. Something as small as a rubber gasket can create a lot of water damage. Use a screwdriver to pop the worn washer out and replace it. Repeat replacing washers on the other end of the hose.
Step 5 Examine internal components by opening the cabinet and starting the fill cycle to see if anything is leaking internally. Calcium deposits and rust may be evident around areas that have leaks.
Step 6 Use hose clamp pliers to remove any corroded spring clamps and replace them with new ones. Make sure the hose is still intact underneath the old clamp. If not, remove the internal hose and take it to an appliance repair center to find the correct replacement part.

Leaking water when washer begins to load water.


Fist place to check is the outlet hose at the back of the machine it will leak as soon as water enters the tub, see if is leaking there, if it is you just have to tighten the clamp . if not there are a few hoses inside of the machine that may need clamps tightend also. The motor is seperated from the water so that wont be leaking. It could also be the electric water inlet valve that is leaking. let me know what you find out !

    Troubleshooting Water Leaks

    Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

    Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

    Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

    Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

    Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

    Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

    Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

    Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

    Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

    Washer leaking when filling up tub


    Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
    Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
    Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
    At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
    Plz rate my solution.
    Thanks.
