13 Reason Water Leakage From Washer | How to Fix?
Water Leakage From Washer. I recently sold my Whirlpool and received a Kenmore front load washer. I just found a puddle of water under my washing machine. I am not sure if anyone spilled water or if the washer was leaking. If it is leaking, I do not know if it is leaking from the drain hose during the filler cycle, during the spin cycle, or when the washer is not in use. I don’t want to call an appliance repair company to fix my washer unless I know. I live in a condo on the second floor so I don’t want to leak water into my neighbor’s condo and I don’t want to use a washer that leaks every time I wash. Is there anything I can easily check that the washing machine is not leaking down?

6 – The water supply hose in your washer is usually a mesh screen filter where the water hose connects to the washer. If they are very dirty and blocked, they can also cause water leaks. Check the water hose mesh screen filters to make sure they are not filled and the leakage is caused by water not entering the washer completely.
7 – Make sure your washer is fully adjusted by adjusting the feet of the washer. Use a level and place it on top of your washer to ensure this.

Make sure you are using the correct HE washer detergent .. Check your manufacturer’s manual to make sure that you are using the amount he recommends.

11 – Ensure that the washer drain plug is removed. If your washer is new, it comes with a drain plug that you will need to take out before connecting a drain hose. Note: If you cycle the wash and the plug is not removed, the washing machine will not run correctly and the water on the floor will run out.
12 – If all hoses and hose parts are tight and in good condition, then the next thing to check is … internal hoses for drainage or filling may be loose or defective. To ensure that all are safe and no leaks are present.
