In this article, we are going to discuss how to check & identify water leakage from your front load washing machine. Alert: always unplug the appliance before carrying out any work. Let’s check the leakage problems in your washing machine. 1. Dispenser The first place you should check is the dispenser. Now inside the roof of the dispenser housing, we have some water jets that can get bunged up by mold and cause water to
leak from the dispenser and can cause the water to come right the way around the door seeming like you have a leak from the door itself. So if you are in any doubt or your jets are dirty given them a good clean with a brush, put your dispenser drawer back in and when running trap a piece of tissue under the dispenser drawer. If the tissue gets wet it means that the leak is coming from the dispenser and not the door itself. If the issue does not get fixed then you should contact your whirlpool washing machine service center for getting your machine in order. 2. Door Seal If you’ve checked the dispenser drawer and the leakage is still coming from the door area of your washing machine, it’s likely to be the door seal inside. Now the lips of the door seal can be damaged due to brining heavy washing in and out of the machine or getting torn by zips. So do check the outer lips of the door seal very carefully for any rips or tears. If your door so is damaged you are going to need to replace it. If you have a leak underneath the machine at the front it may be that the door seal itself has become damaged. So to examine the door seal accurately pull back the door below and look for any tears or holes. If you find any damage, the door seals itself needs to replace it. 3. Filter The next area that we are going to look at is the filter, so just remove the filter cover and here we have the filter inside. Remove the filter; be aware that in your washing machine there may be water inside the filter housing. So it is a good idea to put a towel down or a shallow tray to catch that leaking water. If you have recently taken the filter out to clean and you have noticed that there is a leakage coming from the filter area, it may be that the seal down here on the filter has become contaminated with grit or fine particles. So give the seal a good clean ensuring that there is no contamination on it and also where the seal meets the machine, have a good clean in there as well, meaning that seal on the filter will work properly. 4. Check the leakage throughout the machine If you are having trouble identifying exactly where the leakage is coming from on your machine, grab a piece of cardboard or paper, slip it under the machine, run a cycle & monitor throughout the cycle exactly where the water builds up on the cardboard or paper. Also, be aware though that as I said with dispenser water leaking down from there
may run around the front of the door and drip down there. So always follow exactly where the water is coming from to identify the leak. Still unable to identify the leakage then contact Samsung washing machine customer care or a repair professional. 5. Water leak from the back of the machine If you have noticed a leak at the back of your machine it may be coming from the hoses. Wrap a piece of tissue around the hose and put on a cycle and see if it gets wet. If it is getting wet during the cycle it’s good to check the seal within the hose to make sure that it is in good condition. When replacing the hose make sure that you do it up nice and tightly by the hand. So here we have seen how to check and identify the water leaks in your machine. If the issues are not fixed by cleaning the parts then contact the washing machine repair center.
