Laundry machine leaking water
It probably won’t come as a surprise if I tell you that this is one of the most common problems people face when they use their washing machine. And, it can be an expensive problem too! Leaks can lead to more costly repairs down the line and leave your clothes smelling like mildew.
- Faulty gaskets: The washer gasket is the rubber part of the appliance that keeps water from leaking out. When it breaks or gets worn, leaks can form. You might be able to fix this issue by simply taking the front cover off and tightening the bolts. However, if there is more damage, the gasket will have to be replaced.
- Hose leak: the hoses are what connects the water to the machine. So, if the hoses are damaged, the water will leak out. As well, the internal hoses could be damaged, which would cause them to leak during the water cycle. Check your hoses for damage and ensure they are connected properly and tightly.
- Issue with door sealing: if your door is not sealing properly, it will cause the water to leak out. Oftentimes they can’t close properly because there is something obstructing it from fully shutting, such as dirt, built up detergent, and other things. If the seal is damaged, it will simply need to be replaced.
- Pressure switch: the pressure switch is responsible for monitoring the water level inside of a cycle. If this switch is not working, it can cause the washer to overflow and leak.
