Leaking washing machine can be a nuisance especially messy. If a leak surfaces, you need to establish exactly where the problem is to fix it. In most cases, this is not particularly difficult because there are only a limited number of seats possible for a machine to wash away.
Tools and Materials

* Journal
* Screwdriver
* Pliers

Step 1 - Newspapers

If you're not sure where your washing machine leak is coming from, put all the newspapers around the machine. Power it on and watch carefully as he goes through a cycle. The journal is usually wet when you have a leak. You'll need to watch because the water can spread very quickly around.
Step 2 - Pipe

Pull on the washer and inspect the pipes. The pipes are one of the most common washing machine to leak. Turn off the tap to stop flow and remove the tubes from the machine to check the seals. Replace if worn or rotten seems.
Step 3 - Door

The problem is the source of the leak washing machine may well be in the door seal. When the washing machine is off, open the door and inspect the seal wear. It could also be something caught around the door hinges means that the door closes completely.
Step 4 - Inside

The leakage of washing machine could easily be at the heart of the washing machine. To check, unplug the washer and get it out so you can gain access to the rear of machine. Unscrew the back panel and remove. You will now have access to pipes inside the washing machine. You must remove each by loosening the clamps and check for possible blockages. You should also make sure that the pipes are properly secured, it is quite possible that the connections are loose over time.

When you have a hose disconnected, inspect it for clogs or anything that might cause a leak. If you do find anything, attach the hose before you disconnect relevant to the next. This way you avoid possible confusion when it comes to replacing it.
Step 5 - Pump

The pump can also be the source of the leak washing machine. If you remove the hoses for leaks and they do not seem to be the source of the problem, do not put in place immediately. Instead, you must disconnect the wires from the pump to conduct a thorough inspection. Keep plastic connectors (not the son) with pliers and gently remove, noting that attaches where connector.

The pump will be held on the washing machine by bolts or screws. Loosen and remove the pump, testing to see if you can do with your hands. If you can, the pump is probably not the cause of the leak washing machine. Replace the frame and put on the back, making sure they are well equipped and in the right places. Attach the pipe again, to ensure they are properly tightened. If a new pump is needed, these steps can be followed after a spare is mounted.
