SOURCE: water leaking from under the front of the washing machine

The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know

SOURCE: greasy oil and water is leaking from under the washing machine?

Hello, the good news is the water is coming from the pump and is easily replaced, the bad news is if you are seeing a yellow oily substance your transmission has a leak and will go bad at some stage soon. The question here you need to ask yourself is do you want to spend $35 on a new pump when your going to need to buy a new washer? If so pull the machine out and puch it back so it leans against the wall umder it's own weight. wedge some thing underneath the washer so you can access the bottom without the washer falling on you. you will see the pump attached to the motor which is attached to the transmission. remove the 2 clips and 2 pipes from the pump, remove the pump and replace it, reassemble in reverse order, you should be able to see where the leak came from the pump at the point where the motor shaft connected to the pump. Also while you are under there look at the base of the transmission, you should see some oily residue where the transmission fluid is leaking. Hope this helps! if you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

SOURCE: Problem : Water leaking out from under washing machine

NOTE. PLEASE UN-PLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE FOLLOWING JUST TO BE SAFE:-

Problem may be due to a blocked dispenser hole. Completely remove the dispenser unit and check for blockages in the hole where the water goes in. If you cant see anything immediate, take the top off. (Remove the 2 self tapping screws on the back holding the top on). Looking at the unit from the front. look inside where you took the top off and locate the rubber hose that connects the dispenser unit to the drum (it's a tight space, but if you look inside , front left you will see where the hose connects to the drum). Remove the hose and check for blockages. (The hose just pushes into the drum). Let me know. I had a similar problem and found that somebody had shoved a sock and pair of knickers down the water dispenser hole. This was also causing the machine to make a loud noise when spinning. Have you also checked the filter in the bottom right hand corner of the unit ? You have to remove the kick panel to get access to it.

Water Leak?


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

I have a Fisher Paykal washing machine. It would sometimes have a puddle of water coming from under if it was over loaded. Now it happens every load. Any idea why?

My washing machine will not light up


Generally this problem happens when the drain pump starts to leak under the washing maching. A Fisher Paykel has a main control board under the touch panel that has direct wires running from it to the drain pump. When the drain pump leaks it shorts out the wire connecting it to the control board and blow out the main control. Look under washer and look for the drain pump (Drain pump looks like a fan from the underside.) You will most likely see residue from where the water has been leaking, built up on the pump. If all of the above is true on your machine, replace the pump and control board. Fisher Paykel includes an inline fuse to keep this from happening again.

My washing machine is a Roper top load washer. The problem I am having is that the pump from the cold water drain from under the washing machine. Do I need another pump? The hot water will work. I use the...


This model is a direct drive with only one pump, the drain pump. If the drain pump leaks, which is a common problem on these models, it will leak no matter what temperature wash is selected! If you a have a leak on cold, it will probably also leak on warm wash. Your problem is your solenoid operated fill valve on the cold side. Only one fill hose comes off of this combination fill valve to your fill plenum at the top back of your tub. So if it leaks on the cold, but not hot, check for a crack in the plastic housing of the valve on the cold half. The valve is located on the inside back of the machine on top right when looking at the front of the machine. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.

Hope this helps

Roper washer leaks when filling


It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.

Leaking wash machine


Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.
