Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine when it's filling up
HI there- OUt of nowhere, I wanted to wash some cloths and when it starts to fill up the machine, a lot water spews out from both sides of the machine on the bottome. It is not coming from where you empty out every once ina while the plug but fromthe sides. I have no idea why this is happening and why it just started? What could this be?

Re: Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine...
The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking.
You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking.
Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.

It is common on Whirlpool models for the water to splash out the top when filling especially when sheets or nylon cloth is loaded in the washer. Air fills the cloth and balloons the garment up this caused water to bounce off the garment and splash out the back. This is the most common reason for those mysterious leaks. Lowering the water pressure coming into the washer can help prevent this.
The drain hose has to be higher than the water level at its highest point. IF there is water coming into the machine when it is not running then you may have a bad water inlet valve. They develop leaks like any faucet or valve. It could be some other things too, like the voltage to the valves is not completely cutting off. There is also some water that stays in those machines because it cannot all be pumped out. What is the model number?
After further inspection of my dishwasher I found a bad gasket under the lower wash arm. Over the years it finally gave up and was shooting a torrent of water through the water in the bottom of the wash tub. When all that water hit the door liner it went up into the lower door vents, into to wire harness, and onto the floor.
Is it leaking only when it is filling or all the time? If it is only leaking during fill, it could be an air gap device
Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
If it is leaking all the time it could be the main tub seal. Hope this helped.
you are over filling it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when you use the rinse cycle it just fills the washer up to get all the soap out of the clothes. try just rinsing less clothes then usual. if that is not the problem then on the bottom of your washer is either rusted out or there is a rubber seal that could be over used!
