HandymanFilter: How can I stop my washing machine from leaking? (Pictures and Video included)
It all started when we ran a load of wash using the "hot water" setting. Before then, we'd only used warm or cold water. Before then, we never had a single drop of water leak out. Now, we have at least a gallon of water on the floor after each wash (regardless of water temperature).
Could the hot water have caused a burst hose or a warped gasket? I've checked all of the hoses and hose clamps and they seem fine.
I've noticed that the water really only leaks out when the washer is filling with water - I checked the inlet hoses and there are no leaks there (at least on the outside of the washer).
Disassembling this thing to get a closer look is a nightmare. I tried it the other day but gave up.
Here are some pictures and a video of what I can see.
At this point, my only guess is that the wash bin is leaking. However, that doesn't explain why the washer only leaks when filling up. You'd think if it were that, it'd leak constantly.
I'm out of ideas and appreciate any help you can give me. At this point, we're just throwing towels on the floor.
