The first steps and call a specialist
First of all, you must stop the washing process and drain all the water using the corresponding programmed functions in the electronic control unit machine. Then you need to disconnect the washing machine from the electrical outlet and turn off the tap supplying water to the Laundry, usually located separately from the main plumbing of the site. Only after these steps you can call a specialist at home or independently to transport equipment for repair.
In principle, after an initial action on the "neutralization" leaking washing machine can be independently taken for its repair. The main thing here is to be aware of the problem, to be able to understand plumbing. If such knowledge is not – to take up self-repair of equipment is not necessary! In this case, it is recommended to seek the help of a qualified professional.
The most common cause of a leaking washing machines are the drain and filler hoses. They usually occur in the joints. You can fix this by tightening the appropriate clamps and treating the seats with sealant. Sometimes it is necessary to replace the sealing gasket, or the whole hose as a whole.
Another cause of a leaking washing machine may be clogged not dissolved remains of powder in the hopper of the dispenser. In this case, the lid of the dispenser are formed by drips coming down on the floor. By the way, the same thing can happen with strong water pressure resulting from malfunction of the inlet valve.
To resolve this fault, you need to remove the spout from the hopper cars and then clean it thoroughly excess residue, rinse all of the outlet holes and cavities. If the problem is not solved, it is necessary to reduce the pressure of water coming into the washing machine. If this does not work, you need to replace the inlet valve.
If the machine is leaking from the front panel under the hatch, on the face of the damage to the adjacent front wall of the cuff. Flow under the car may indicate a damaged rear adjoining wall of the same cuff. You can fix the problem, taped the damaged area and scroll to the top. For this you need to remove the cuffs securing the clamps to be rotated up to 180 degrees around its axis.
The reason for the leakage of machine can be filling nozzle in her tank. In place of the connection pipe tightly planted on the glue, but that does not mean the absence of potential leaks. If a pipe noticeable stains, it is necessary to remove, clean and rinse. The seat should be well dried, and then re-install the pipe in place with suitable adhesive.
Leaking can and drain pipe of the same tank. It connects the lower part of the tank machines with a drain pump. The drain tube may be damaged or clogged with tiny pieces of underwear (castles, rhinestones, buttons). Often it occurs because of a weakened retaining clips. In this case, the footprint is smeared with sealant, and clamps tightened. If the drain pipe cracks appeared – it is better to replace.
Over time, the washing machine can wear out the so-called oil seal bearing tank. It ensures the integrity of the mechanism when operating equipment in severe conditions (high temperature, powerful, dynamic load, etc.). In this case, the machine will begin to leak. The seal is not repaired, it will need to be replaced.
