Leaking tap? The hose leaks where it is connected to the cold tap when the machine is being used. It doesn't leak when not in use. I thought the hose was faulty so bought a new one but it is still leaking.

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.

My Bosch washing machine is leaking from the bottom of the right hand side of machine when not in use.


g'day, sounds like the leak is coming from the hose - this is because the leak is occurring when its off. Check seals on hose at the back of machine. You can always find old sets of hoses as well (or buy them), so you can try swapping them over. Keep in mind, with washing machine hoses (like gardening hoses), the seal is at the rubber washers not the thread on the tap... so plumbers tap will not stop a leak, it will hinder the seal.
An alternative solution is simply turn tap's off between washes...

WATER LEAKING FROM UNDER


Pull the machine away from the wall enough to get to the 3 hoses on the back. Make sure they are all tight. Two will be for hot and cold water and will have a regular threaded connection that can be tightened with a pair of pliers or pipe wrench (tighten both the washer side, and the wall side). The third is the dirty water discharge and will most likely have a worm-gear clamp that can be tightened with a screw driver. After tightening them all, run another load and watch all the connections for any other signs of leaking.

If tightening them doesn't fix the leak then you should replace the gaskets on the two threaded connections. You can get replacements at your local hardware store. Make sure you turn off the water with the valves on the wall before removing the hot/cold water hoses or you will make a big mess.

Broken water line or water heater, from winter freeze. When water is turned on tap water goes under the bunk bed area. Could this be the water heater or a hose in the area. We don't know the layout...


Depends on which tap you're turning ON. If it's cold water tap, it's probably a water line. If it's the hot water tap, it could also be a line. As heaters leak, whether the water tap is ON or NOT. Opening a tap valve doesn't cause the water heater to leak. The main question is, was the water heater's tank drained, before the Winter Freeze, when no one was using it? If it wasn't, there's a good chance the water heater will leak too

Hope this helps you solve the leaking water pipes problem. Please let me know Thanks.

Leaking taps


Check first if leaking from hoses or under the machine.
Undo your taps, check that the hoses rubber seals haven't worn out. Replace rubber seals, most hardware plumbing sections have them. Also if the actual tap is leaking at the wall, you will have to change the tappets. You will need to close your main water at the timer, then undo the actual knobs, depending on the tap. Once opened take out tappets and replace with copper ones rather than plastic. Then put all back together and switch water on and check if leaking. In case it is the washing machine, try to replace hose or the connector on the back of machine. Make sure also all rubber seals are replaced with new ones. If under machine you will need a plumber. See how you go!

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg


water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop
