Washing Machine Leaks

9 posts in this topic

I have a Frigidaire Wahing Machine that is about 6 years old. It recently began leaking out the bottom. The leak is pretty substantial and cannot be ignored. It begins leaking out the base as soon as water begins filling the tub. If I had to guess, I would say it is a seal that has worked itself loose. Before I call an expert, I thought I would take a shot at fixing it myself. Any suggestions?

Check the Hoses under it one is most likly cracked and you may need to put water in the tub to find it.

If you look under the machine you should see some staining in the area of the leak. If it's a hose it will be easy to spot. If it's the water pump that too is easy to spot. I just Googled Frigidaire washign machine and the water pump jumped up as the first part on the list of one of the dealers. My daughter just replaced the one on her rig a month ago. Not a big deal and only $45 or so for the part most likely.

Thanks for the replies guys. I really appreciate it. I haven't had a chance, but as soon as I do I will let you know how things go. I will probably have more questions at that time.

The problem ended up being a hole in the bottom of the washer tub. I have no idea how it got there but a little plumber putty and it is as good as new. Thanks for the help.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
