Hi, thank you for contacting Justanswer. I would like to try to help you. I am an expert from Germany. Work with language translators. Please understand. I am always online from 18 - 23 o'clock. I'm afraid I can't use the phone. If you want to call an expert please tell me.


Please check the hoses below the machine. It is 100% leaking. To do this, pull out the machine and remove the side walls.

It is a bit complicated but feasible.

wait for your feedback. Best regards, Erdal

I don;t mind working with you online. but if you think it is easier to talk through it, then we can do that

Okay, as I said, I'm just online here.
You have to check all hoses and if necessary tighten the clamps again. Look for the leak first.
