Hello Sloane, my name is George,

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that Sloane.. Please bare with me whilst I have a look at the diagrams for the appliance

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No worries.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Can you tell me; does this happen whilst the appliance is in its spin mode or at another time?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can't say for sure but I do believe I notice it towards the end of the cycle
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Can you check the seal inside the door.. Check it for holes or rips

Slide some paper under the appliance so as to detect the exact area of the leak

There are many areas that can leak.. identifying the area will be a chore, but I will bare with you whilst you find the source of the leak.. however, I must go out on call now and will be out for some time. I may therefore not be able to answer you immediately, but will be back later.. so leave me a message and I'll respond on my return.

The leak is just under the left side of the machine. I can see it dripping. I too have to go out for a meeting. When shall we chat today?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I will come back to you later today

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi GEORGE- ANY THOUGHTS ON WHAT COULD BE THE REASON FOR THE LEAK?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Check the seal inside the door.. Check it for pin holes or rips

Check the ridge behind the bottom of the front panel to see if it is wet in the channel

There is mainly 3 places the water could be coming from if it is arriving in that area, and they are as follows:

  1. The Detergent to drum hose (friction holes)
  2. The pump (Seal worn)
  3. Door seal (Hole and rips)

Hi George-I can't seem to ready any responses from you accept from this morning. I am going to have a look under the machine and let you know what I see. Give me 10 minutes.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Hello Sloan, I can see the fact that there has been a response, but other than your response to me at 9:37 I do not have any text

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK I will check under the machine and let you know what I find.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Ok Sloane.. If you are checking from under the appliance, ensure that you turn off the power first.

Also, look for water stains.. This is a good indicator to find leaks.

regards

George

Hi George- I did notice during rinsing cycle there was water coming from the soap tray. I don't use the soap try at all but once the cycle was completed I pulled out the soap tray to find do issues. I also noticed during the spinning cycle there was water coming from underneath the left hand side near the front. Any thoughts on how I can fix this? Thanks- Sloane

Hello Sloan,

When the water was overflowing the soap tray, what was the level of water in the drum?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi George- it was low
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Hi Sloan, to start there are three things to check for that issue (I have listed them in the order of most common)..

  1. Check the 'Soap Dispenser to Drum' hose that it mounted underneath the soap dispenser for blockages..
  2. Check that the appliance is not tilting forward
  3. Check that the water pressure is not too high
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok. will do and i'll get back to you. thank you
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Ok Sloan.. I'll await your feedback
