    Leaking Washer

    So my year and a half old washer is now leaking water. It is not coming from any of the hoses out of the back. I am hoping it is something easy that I can fix on my own, but need some help troubleshooting the possibilities. Any advice would be awesome.

    Thanks,

    Check the gasket around the front where the door seals up.

    Re: Leaking Washer

    Call Dey Appliance in Urbandale with the model and problem. They will probably know resolution to problem. I had similar probelm on 8yr old maytag, and if I remember correctly, it was a seal on water pump. They sell to do-it-yourselfers, and might have a referall for you too, if you don't do it yourself. Parts will be cheap, labor won't. Good luck.

    Use good quality gum and duct tape.

    You can buy a plastic liner at Lowes to capture floor water if you cannot afford to have a small leak.

    Big leaks - call the repairment if it is not a hose. In worst case, the tuib may need replaced.

    Could also be one of the pumps -- the pump that removes the water on mine has a plastic housing and cracked.. I had to do some sheetrock work when mine decided to let loose and flooded my floor and ruined the ceiling below. Mine was HE whirlpool model.
