Washer is leaking when draining...

I washed a heavy rug in the washer and since then it has leaked right before each spin cycle. It's not just a little leak it's all the water from the load. I checked all hoses and they are in tact. Could you please help me with any other solutions or troubleshooting ideas before I call a repair man or get a new washer? I really appreciate the help.

Ok..so you checked al the hoses.. do you mean ALL the hoses inside the washer? or outside the washer.. chances are one of the hoses broke free durin the violent spin cycle of that over-sized rug.. and you haven't found it yet. If you have sufficient room to extend the washer out from the wall.. gain access to the inside of it from the back.. then check each and wvery hose connection/clamp to make sure they are secure.. also.. look at the pump assemby to make sure it isn't the source of the leak..then if nothing is obvious,, watch for leaks by using a flashlight and examining everything you can while it fills the tub.. Leaks are normally the easiest thiong to zero in on.. and ... try to have a few towels or wet/dry vac handy during all this.. Hope this helps...

My whirpool WFS1071BD front load washing machine leaking when spinning


During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find.

How do you wash one rug? I can't get the machine


You dont say how big this rug is, but I am guessing its not big enough to spreadevenly around the machine. The machine senses an imbalance and willo not spin or failos to spin at a rate that would rekove the water. Try adding some balance to the drum with another object that will evenly spread the load to see if that helops to get rid of the sopping water.
BTW any pictures of you whipping the rug around in the backyard? That should make for Utube fame!

Washer will not start washing cycle. Machine hums like the dryer


Check the drain for clog. If the drain is dirty, the washer won't fill, rinse, or drain.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Washer Leaking from bottom


Probably the drain pump seal has gone bad.
Check it for leaks.
If your floor is good and level look for water near the front center of the machine.

Washer leaking from bottom


Take the front panel off of the washer, and run it through a cycle. Watch to see where the leak is coming from. Also, pay attention to the drain in the wall when it is in spin/drain. If this has a blockage in it, it might be backing up causing water to come back out of it.

If you see no leaks the next time you run it, it's possible that it splashed over while spinning because of the off balance load and may not happen again unless it becomes off balance again.

Bosch WFR2460 Leaks


are you sure it only happens in the spin cycle? and is the leak comming from the bottom front of the washer? most front laoders will leak due to a tear in the belows. that is the rubber boot that seals the washer tub to the front panel. if there was a hole or a tear in the bellows it should have a leak inthe wash cycle also. but there are also other possibilitys too.but its strange to only leak in a spin cycle due to the washer is extracting the water and not adding it. so check and see if it leaks in the wash cycle to and get back to me and we can go from there. looking through my training manual i dont see what could cause a leak in just the spin cycle
