There is a vent at the back of the machine near the top that is covered by a small round white plastic cross pattern. Inside of the machine there is a black flexible hose that attaches to the vent from the top of the outer tub. inside of the tub attachment point is supposed to be a light blue plastic valve that looks like an old style army helmet on a peg. The peg fits into a flange in the opening on the outer tub. If this valve is missing water will escape from the vent on the back of the machine. Another likely point of water leak is a loose inlet hose or missing washer on the inlet hose.

Take the front cover off and use a shop vac to suck the water out, check filter while you do this see if the evap coil is dirty the one on the inside. sounds like it maybe freezing up. check for air flow.

Ytek.netwe just moved into a house with a duet washing machine- a few years old. when we do a normal clean cycle, it doesnt appear there is that much water getting used. How much water should we see thru...


All front loaders use very little water as a opposed to a top loader that uses up to 45 gallons per load a front loader uses about 10,plus a front loader cleans clothes very well with that minimal water usage.
The major question is do the clothes seem to come out clean when you have used that washer?

Window air conditioner is spitting water


Hello, usually a window AC will spit water if the unit is not tilted back or if the drain is backed up, if the unit is level try tilting it back it the window somewhat. Also, if the unit does have a drain make sure it is not blocked.

Our front end loader stinks and we have to leave the door open. We have the exact same problem where I work. How do you get the smell out?


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 hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big 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.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

The service light remains on and the washing will not start.


Hi, make sure there's water in tap that feed machine, if there's, lock off you water, remove hose where it's connected to machine. valve on machine where you remove hoses from, check inside you will see strainer, clean any debris that's there, could be blockage of water entering machine, washer will start only when there's water in it. if it were clog up and you clean it, then connect hoses back to machine, and try it. if that didn't work, then you will need to check, water solenoid valve, that's the same valve, your two water hoses connected to, sometimes they burnt out, especially when there's low water pressure in tap, you didn't say what type of washer you got, top loader or front loader, if you got a top loader, fill it manually(bucket) and it will start, if water solenoid valve burnt out, if you got a front loader, you won't be able to fill it manually, if these tips didn't work, you will have to call mechanic, to make other checks. good luck

Front loader washer -water comes and just goes


Your problem is water siphoning because of the drain pipe too low or no air gap where the drain enters the wall. The drain hose from the washer should be at least 33 inches high.
