Hi my name is Tim, if it's pouring out it's probably coming from the drain hose or pump under the unit. That front panel on the bottom comes off it's held on by 3 #15 or #20 torx screws.
The only way to truly tell exactly were that leak is coming from, is a visual inspection.
I have the panel off. The water is running from behind the front flange of the drum along the exterior bottom of the drum, then runs to the floor. Cannot see leak point with mirror or feel it with my hand. Very tight area from which the leak stream comes.
Had F20 code as well.
ARE you sure the door boot didn't come loose?
No. How do I tell. I can't even figure out how it seals normally. Wouldn't the water level have to be up to the door level for that to be the problem? When empty, water in the bottom of the drum leaks out the bottom of the washer.
you said the leak was coming from the front
is it the front or the back that is leaking?
No. It is coming from underneath the washer toward the front.
open the washer door push the drum back and check the door boot to make sure it is still attached to the outer tub
also underneath the unit reach up and feel for the door boot and a loose band.
The seal moves with the drum. No separation apparent.
you poured water in the top not the dispenser right?
In the drum. At the bottom. Not near the door. Imagine opening the washer, sticking your arm to the middle and dumping a glass of water. It all runs out the bottom.
and you can't see were it is dripping from? not the tub not the drain hose not the pump just see it dripping down from the front panel
There is a huge honking concrete weight at the bottom front of the drum on the underside. The weight has a recess where there is a through bolt. The water runs along the bottom of the drum then through the recess and drips down. None of the leaking occurs on the front side of the weight. It all comes from the back side.
Then it's coming from the door boot I know it's tight and hard to see, it would have been easier for me to have you take the door boot off in the front but the spring is extremely hard to reinstall and 99 out of 100 people can not do it.
The boot either has a hole in it or the the inside band came loose. They are extremely difficult to reinstall and should be done by a technician.
I doubt it's the actual tub that is leaking you would have the one in a million that did spring a leak.
Did you need anything else?
No. Thanks for the help.
