Handling Washing Machine Leaks
- Shut off the water. To prevent further water damage, empty your washer and shut off the water supply connected to the machine.
- Inspect the machine. Washers can have leaks from various sources, with some of the most common being the water supply hoses in the back of the unit, internal hoses, and the pump. Check hoses carefully for mineral deposits and rust that can indicate a leak.
- Replace components. Your local hardware store is likely to have compatible replacement parts for many components of a washing machine, including hoses. Consider braided cables, which are designed to be more resistant to leaking. Replace hose washers and other hardware that connects your appliance to the water supply. For pump replacements, use a car jack or 2x4s to angle the machine and prevent tipping during repairs. If the belt is burnt or worn down to its threads, replace it as well.
