Most Frequent Causes for Washer leaking water

Cause 1Drain Pump

The drain pump pumps water out the drain hose. If the drain pump is cracked or damaged, or if the bearings are worn out, the drain pump may leak water. The drain pump is not repairable—if the pump is leaking water, replace it.

Cause 2Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

The tub seal might be torn, causing water to leak from the seal. If the tub seal is leaking water, water may leak through the tub seal and into the tub bearings. This can cause the bearings to fail. For this reason, if the tub seal is leaking water, replace both the tub seal and the tub bearings. Be aware that this is a complicated repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Cause 4Tub-to-Pump Hose

The tub-to-pump-hose might be split or torn. If the tub-to-pump-hose is damaged, replace it. Do not attempt to cut off the damaged piece of hose and stretch the hose to fit the pump. Stretching the hose will put strain on the remainder of the hose and may cause the hose to suddenly rupture.
