Washer leaks 30 min after finished

3 posts in this topic

 I know I'm starting off breaking a rule by not knowing the brand or model. My girlfriend called me with "the washer is leaking" line. I went thru the general questions of what could have caused it. No answers, So I went over and started a new load, I checked the supply lines and the drain line during the whole run and watched the floor the whole time. Nothing. Put the cloths in the dryer and left. came back about an hour later water was on the floor. I checked where the drain line goes in the wall and it was dry, every place was dry except for the floor, not much maybe a gallon. Any help or ideas are apprecited

A model no is probably the most important thing a washing machine can have, and as for the brand, I feel sorry for your machine as I think the relationship is a little one sided.  You will have to go deeper with the W/M and get in touch with its inner being ( remove the covers and possibly tilt back or foward depending on what it is;) ), and always make sure the lights are out (turn the power off to the washer to make sure). When enlightenment has been achieved, post a message with all the details:shock:.

i have been fooled this way before,the key words are "put the clothes in the dryer and left"- if the exhaust vent for the dryer is clogged,condensation will form near the blockage and run back down and out of the vent- the water may pool on the floor near the washer,fooling one into thinking that is where it came from.if you eliminate this as a possibility,the only place the machine can leak when turned off,is from the pump,or a hose that contains "standing water" as the grandmaster samurai says "all leaks are evident" its just a matter of casting your peepers upon the source.
