Put a piece of cardboard underneath the FP this morning because it was leaking, not a lot, but leaking. It was enough to cause my husband to panic.

 

I took a flashlight and looked under the machine and saw water dripping in three places in the back. It's doing it leaks in wash mode.

 

I wasn't able to attach a picture file. you can see an "O" shape on the cardboard.

 

What could be causing this?

 

Thanks,

 

Mom

Remove 2 screws on back of control panel and look under panel for water. Possible thermistor seal or water valve leak. Does it drain properly? do you hear water flowing into tub when draining? That could be something in the diverter valve that would make it drain slow and then in spin mode it would splash over the top of the tub due to water being pumped back into tub thru the recirculation hose at the 2 o'clock position on the top of the tub. Check drain pump for rust or signs of it being wet.
