I am trying to figure out the likely cause of a small puddle of water at the bottom of our washer. We are still able to do laundry and the washer does not give any error codes (searching on the internet, the most common one seems to be E:04?) yet.
What I have observed:
1. During the Spin cycle, I can notice water dripping very slowly (entire 9 minute spin cycle, I noticed three drops of water dripping from under the washer from somewhere closer to the front of the washer).
2. Sometimes, it takes awhile before we notice a puddle. For instance, we finished the last (of 5) loads yesterday evening (around 7-8pm) but I did not notice a puddle till mid morning today. Its possible water could be still dripping and we only see it when there's enough to form a pool that starts flowing to the front of the washer but just wanted to mention it if it might help narrow down the problem.
3. Visual inspection and running my hand along the hoses at the back of washer indicates the hoses might be fine.
Having read various similar articles on the Internet as well as this helpful video (esp for the Patented Wet Vac Technique) by SamuraiRepairman, I wonder if it could be an issue with the washer not draining completely - which could in turn be caused by stuck debris as shown in above video? What could be some other causes of this?
Thanks for any input,
