If you have left the transit bolts in and now its leaking then it could have damaged somthing in there.

What you need to do is pull the washer out and remove the top and the back panel. From there check the hoses and see if one has come off.

If it looks fine then lean the washer backwards and have someone hold for you and then lie down and look under the washer and then check under there and see if the drum has broken.

As if the hoses are fine and then transit bolts was left in then it could have ripped the drum as ive seen it happen before. So check them and see what you find and let me know.

Just wondering how you got on with the washer as the qustion is still open?

Do you still need help on this? If not then if you could rate the answer then that will close the question.

Many thank
