Washer leaking We just recently bought a washer from someone, and moved it to our house. It worked before we moved it, but now it will not. The wash cycle works untill it comes to the spin cylce. Then the water does not drain thought the pump like it should. It goes through the holes into the outter part of the drum like it should but then comes out though the vent holes on the top of the drum causing the water to go all over the floor instead of into the drain. We were wondering if this is a problem with the pump, or if it could be something else. Thank you

Is the plastic housing (Outer Tub) in good shape? If the old boot was ripped, It might be the spider is also broken. Can you move the inner tub by hand and see if it lifts upward? If so you might have to get a new one. I had the spider bracket in the rear of the inner tub break in 4 pieces and too expensive to weld. So I bought a new top loader.
There is a tube on the side of your dishwasher for over flow. It sounds to me like your washer was moved and it banged against that line. You can put some caulking around where it enters the washer and that should be fine. The bottom can be several things. If your washer was removed and reinstalled like say maybe floor installation the supply line, or waste line may not be tight. If your unit has not been moved recently it is most likely the motor housing. Take off the one or two covers on the front bottom of the washer. Place the washer through the cycles and with a flashlight see at what cycle and where the water is coming from. It it appears to be coming from the white housing it's the motor. It's cheaper to just replace the unit as these motor housings are around $150.00. Check out craigslist. Hope this helps. JimmyC
When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:
1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine. 2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine. 3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector. 4. Push the filter back into place. 5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine. 6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.
Also, please check the following: • Make sure the source water faucet is turned on. • Check the water pressure.
