This is most likely a problem with the door seal on a front loading washing machine. Wipe it down with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris. If the problem persists, notice if something is lodged under the door seal by gently pulling it back.
Why does my front load washer leak from the door?
Leaks on a Front Load Washer can be caused by soil and soap being left on the door seal after a wash. Carefully wipe off the rubber door seal to prevent small leaks, making sure to wipe the edge of the gasket.
How do I stop my washing machine door from leaking?
On front-loading washers, check for moisture around the outside of the door seal. Regularly clean any dirt build-up around the seal – this could cause the door not to shut fully and water to seep through. Double-check that the machine is sitting level on even ground.
Where could my front load washer be leaking from?
In most cases, the leak will be caused by a loose or punctured drain hose, a fault with the drain pump, or a worn-out tub-to-pump hose. If it is possible to run the washer without causing further damage, removing the access panel and then running the washer will allow you to observe where the leak is coming from.
