Leaks during delicate and hand wash cycles

This washer seems to leak only during hand wash and delicate cycles. I see no evidence of leaks during heavy duty and normal wash cycles

Jamie, thanks for the follow up. I figured it out.

Since I could not see any evidence of the obvious leaks, I pulled the panels off, and started a cycle. I could clearly see it's coming out the door.

I would guess that it would leak on all cycles, but on delicate there is a lot more free water ( not absorbed by the clothes) so it is much easier for it to get past the seal. Now comes the fun part!

what if at the end .. if you open the little hatch on the bottom of the machine.. lot's more water spills out. There is no evidence of "cloggedge" :) ..?


I'm having the same issue. How did you fix it? Mine is leaking from the door only on delicate and heavy duty. Normal wash there are no leaks.
