Question about Frigidaire MWS939Z Top Load Washer
My wash machine appears to be leaking water. The floor underneath it is wet. Our machine is on carpeting so I did't notice it till it started getting the floor wet in front of the machine. After moving it, the floor underneath is completely soaked however, there is a dry area near the wet area followed by another wet spot. Almost like the washer is "spitting" the water out of the side or something. The dry area in between feels a little damp but is not soaked the other areas. I'm not sure if this could just be how the water came through the carpeting or if the water is actually coming out that way. I have watched the machine throughout the complete cycle and have not seen where it is coming from. I have checked all the water connections and where the hose where the water drains out which is a hose that goes into a plastic pipe that stands along the wall and goes into the floor. I'm sure you can tell by now that I am a female who knows only how to run the machine and not how to fix it when something is wrong. It had been off balance but I fixed that problem although the machine has been going off balance so bad that it stops the tub from spinning and it bangs the washer all over the place. Makes a horrible noise!! I catch it right away and fix it by just rearranging the clothes. This started happening alot since I noticed the water leak. I'm not sure if the two problems are related but I sure hope so!! Thank you for any advice you can give me!!
It is probably a seal that is on or near the bottom of the tub. Dirt and grim wears at this seal over time. The leak is slow so it is hard to visually see.
