Frigidaire Front Loading Washing machine FWT647GHSO

2 posts in this topic

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Front loading washing maching. It is leaking water....a lot of it. There are no visible tears in the door boot. I have removed the bottom panel, as well as the top panel to watch for leaks as the machine goes through a wash cycle. I have obsereved an obstinant amount of water running down the right side (my right) of the machine main tub, but I cannot see the source of the leak. I suspect that it may be the gasket between the two peices of the (plastic) main tub, (if there is a gasket??!?) Does anyone have any insight about this??

Cheers,

Andrew

The tub is in two halves bolted together with a gasket between 'em. Over time, the plastic can deform and make gaps, allowing water to leak. See this post for more: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2005/07/19/appliance-repair-revelation-mystery-leak-from-a-frigidaire-kenmore-417xxxxx-front-loading-washer/

Those bolts can all be reached from the top and bottom and tightened up. If that's the source of the leak, you have about a 88.564% chance of success.
