Water coming out from the washing machine

Hello!

I have a Whirlpool washing machine for 4 years and for 1 month the water coming from the machine, goes out to the floor. I checked it and it seems it comes from the drawer where you put the powder. I dont normally put a lot of it.

How can I solve it?

Thanks a lot.

Sandra.

Chosen Solution

Drain Pump

If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

If the washer is leaking water the tub seal and bearing kit might need to be replace. This is usually a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Tub Seal Kit

If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. The tub bearing often gets damaged when the seal leaks. consider replacing the tub bearing along with the tub seal. This is usually a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Tub Spin Seal

If the washer is leaking water the tub spin seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. The tub bearing often gets damaged when the seal leaks. consider replacing the tub bearing along with the tub seal. This is usually a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Tub Seal

If the washer is leaking water the tub seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The tub seal can be replaced. When the tub seal fails water gets into the tub bearings and usually causes the bearings to go bad also. It is a good idea to replace the tub bearings with the new tub seal. This is usually a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Door Boot Seal

If the washer is leaking water the front door boot seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The boot seal can be replaced. This part can tear when the washer is overloaded. This is common repair.

Tub to Pump Hose

If the washer is leaking water the hose from the tub to the pump might be split or torn. Don't try to cut off the bad piece of hose and stretch it to fit the pump, this will put strain on the remainder of the hose and may cause a sudden and complete failure of the hose which will dump potentially hundreds or thousands of gallons of water onto the floor because the next time the washer tries to fill all of the water will end up on the floor and so the washer will never shut off the valve. Any time there is a damaged hose, replace it completely with the OEM part.

Washing Machine Fill Hose

If the washer is leaking water, check the fill hoses on the back of the washer, this is the most common place for water to leak. If the washer still has the original black rubber fill hoses replace them with stainless steel or some other, more durable hose.

Drain Hose

If the washer is leaking water check the drain hose. The most common places for the hose to spring a leak is from the connection to the pump out to the back of the washer. Another common occurrence is when the washer gets pushed too far back against the wall.
