Front-load Drum is 1/2 full of water and water on the floor!
I went to load my front loading machine this morning. I opened the door and started to put a few items in, when I realized the washer was nearly 1/2 full of water.
(I have NO idea why the drum was partially filled and the door was Not locked. I just opened it, as usual, and didn't even notice the water right away.. I'm obviously sleep deprived!)
I (quickly) closed the door and ran the drain/spin cycle to drain the water.
While I was waiting for the cycle to finish, I "inspected" the area around the washer. The drain hose seemed to be intact and was not leaking (that I could tell).
It seems as though some water is seeping from the rear left side of the washer. It's not pouring out... put because it had sat there (for who knows how long?!)... There was a decent size puddle. *Should I first Check the drain pump housing? *
Possible helpful insight: The last load of laundry I did was Saturday (pretty much a week)...The laundry room is in what we consider the basement.. it is a bit more than 1/2 way below ground (A tri-level with a "basement").. Also (other than yesterday) we have gotten strong afternoon storms, and fairly abundant rains- for about 4 or 5 days straight. I doubt that has anything to do with anything, but wanted to be as detailed as possible ;-)
Thanks -in advance - for any help!
Is this a good question?
