SOURCE: water leaking from underneath after washer drains

I have the same washer and there is a white plastic piece underneath the washer where two hoses go into. It contains the impeller that pumps the water out. Anyway, on my machine this piece was incorrectly injection molded at the factory. The glue bubbled out causing an air bubble -- once the air bubble in the glue can stand the pressure and pops, the leak occurs!!!!! If you are a handyperson, take this piece out and use exopy to fix.

SOURCE: My Hayward pump is leaking.

is the pump leaking from the lid if so you may have an obstruction **** as dirt leaves or debree if the pump is leaking where the motor meets the wet end of the pump then you need to replace the ps1000 seal not sure if ps1000 will work on hayward but when you go to buy one. tell the pool store employee that you need a ps seal for an hayward.

Hayward pool pump leaking from underneath motor


The leak is an indicator the shaft seal has failed. It leaks by design to let you know to replace the seal before water gets into the motor and ruins it. Replace the seal right away.

I replaced emerson 1hp pump to my hayward max pump and leaks any ideas all seals replaced


Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. Sounds like the mechanical seal is leaking. If you replace the spring loaded seal the problem could be that it was installed backwards. It is ceramic against carbon. if installed the other way it will leak. Any debris or oils getting on the seal will also cause it to fail Running pump without any water will heat up the seal and cause it to fail.

What would cause my Brominator to leak from underneath.


If it is an offline model you should be able to turn it upside down while pump is running and see the leak.

This June, I had to replace my strainer housing on my Hayward Power-Flo Matrix pump. It cracked in cold weather before I remembered to remove it. On installing a replacement, I noticed that the pump showed...


One or more of a couple issues is at play here. First would be the seal replacement. Even if you used the correct seal if you touched the surfaces or failed to install it properly it can and will leak. Second, inspect the housing around the seal fit and the stem of the impeller for cracks. A hairline crack is enough when placed under pump operating pressure to allow a leak. Somewhere in there is your solution.

I have a Hayward sand filter and its leaking from the bottom. I know this because water is collecting under the stand it sits on. I can't move because of the plumbing. What do I do.


Depending on how close the pump is to the filter, you may be getting tricked and the shaft seal in the pump is leaking. If the bottom of the filter is leaking, it's either the drain plug, which is obvious and you can see it. Or the tank is cracked because it wasn't winterized properly, depending on your situation. There is nothing else underneath that filter that will leak. You need to locate exactly where that water is coming from. If it is the shaft seal in the pump, it is hard to see but look underneath your pump where the plastic housing meets the motor, the shaft seal is in that area, although you can't see it because it is inside the pump, but if it is leaking, that is where you will see it. Need an update after you check that stuff out.

Leak between seal plate and pump/strainer housing


The pump seal is leaking and needs replacing and requires removing four 3/8 bolts (9/16) wrench and removing the motor then the diffuser to get to the impeller and seal . A 7/16 wrench holds the rear motor shaft behind the springs and impeller spins off to reveal the seal which has two parts one on the impeller with a spring and one in the seal plate is white ceramic/ porcelan whatever they use. Part number is an SPX1600KA on super pumps and 1500KA wassome above grounds. When replacing do not touch the mating white and black surfaces with your fingers.
