I have a old Hotpoint washer Model #: WLW1500BALWH. As soon as I turn it on the water start's leaking out. The hose's are all tight, the water is coming from underneath the washer. The tub won't even slightly fill because of the water pouring out.

Old steel-tub GE. Tub may well have rusted out - given that the water is "pouring" out, it shouldn't be too hard to find. Tilt it back and get under with the flashlight.

Sounds like the tub boot has let go, one of the clamps has probably broken or the boot just slipped off the transmission top or the tub lip....easy enough to fix, need to pull the agitator and the basket to see...replace the boot and the clamps...

ok thanks. I'll have to wait till my fiancé gets home before I can have a look to see if any of these are the issue. I'm 8 months pregnant, so I surely can't be tipping a washer up and such!

Oh and does anyone have a schematic of this washer. Maybe a picture that says what’s what? I can't find anything online.
