No, I can't actually see it coming from the unit. The leak just appears to be related to the washer - there is no other water source above it, and it only occurs when the washer is being used, and only some of the time when it's being used. Since it first happened, it's always happened under one of two circumstances - an highly loaded machine, or a heavyweight load (such as the jeans in this instance). I washed four loads prior to this one, and the one before this load had half a dozen towels and 2 pair of jeans - with no leak. I'm going to go check on make and model of machine; am pretty sure it's a Whirlpool.
It's a Maytag Duet Steam. Do you need an actual model number? where would that be located?
No, I can't, because the washer is on one of those platform drawer storage things we bought as a set with the washer and dryer. I THINK I see some screws, but am not sure that's what you mean.
OK, I will try that later - but I strongly suspect it's the drain backing up. It's actually what I was suspecting, but I didn't know if that was even possible. I'd like to give you a Good Service rating - is that acceptable?
