Hello and thankyou for using this service!

I am sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your washer

Let's work together to find out what is wrong :)

Did the tech take the front panel off the washer and inspect it for the leak?

If he did not, then I would suggest that you lift the top and remove the front panel. That way you can see what is happening and possibly where the water leak is originating from.

Take a flat putty knife and look between the top and front panel foe the release clips that will allow the top to come up. They are usually about 4-5 inches in from each side. Push in on the clips with the putty knife while lifting slightly on the top. The top will pop up up a little and you can then lif it up. It is hinged on the back so you can stand it up.

Next there are two screws on the top front edge that can be removed and the the front will tilt forward and lifted off the front. Put the top back down and then you can run the washer to find the leak.

Here is a picture of the cabinet and a video to help you out with taking it apart.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Check the pipe that the washer drains in to when it is draining. Often times, the drain line in your home can become partially obstructed and will overflow when the large amount of water is drained from the washing machine. You should not have to move anything or disassemble anything to check that pipe. Let me know what you find.
