Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My washer, while draining, leaks from the bottom.

My washer, fills and agitates properly. However, when it begins to drain the water leaks out of the bottom. It's not a fast leak, but the majority of the water drains on the floor and not down the proper drain.

    I can't see anywhere it came from the back of the machine. It is
    eitherinside or the bottom. This the second time this has happened. The
    firsttime I thought it was because I did a lot of towels. Tonight I ran
    itempy and it did it again. I washed a lot of clothes since the
    firsttime and out of the blue it did it again. Help!!

Remove the panel to observe the drain hoses while machine is in use. using a flashlight, locate the hose that you see leaking.

LG drains and fills at same time.

This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

The washer starts to fill normally, then agitates very briefly, stops, and begins to fill again. When watching the water fill, the water level does not rise at all, and if you push the button in to stop...

It sounds like your drain hose is two low. If your drain hose is inserted into a drain pipe try extending the drain pipe to the same hight as the washing machine.

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains

Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.

Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.

GE Top load washer.

Hello rschneeweis
Welcome,

Sounds like a seal or drain hose is leaking or the clamp on a hose has vibrated loose.

Water leaking out the bottom of the machine when washing machine begins agitation cycle. If the machine is turned off the water stops leaking even with the tub full of water.

Let me know if you found it and how you do.
