Why is my washing machine leaking underneath?
Leaks under the washer are commonly caused by a damaged water pump or compromised hoses connected to the pump. Usually, you will notice lots of rumbling or shaking from the machine during a wash cycle if the pump is faulty. The water pump in a washer is generally located at the bottom of the machine.
Do plumbers fix washing machines?
Washing machines are complex appliances, and should always be repaired by a professional who specializes in washing machines. Our plumbers can fix hoses and run the piping, but we do not repair the appliance itself. Plumbers should be called in to handle water supply and drain lines, which can clog over time.
How much does it cost to replace a washing machine pump?
The most important part is a new washer pump. It can cost as little as $10 or as much as $75 or more. However, most homeowners pay between $25-$40 for a new pump.
Where does washer drain water go?
Wastewater from your washing machine and dishwasher may either go to your septic tank and/or cesspool or to a separate disposal system called a dry well. This wastewater can be problematic due to its high concentrations of soaps and detergents, grease and paper.
Where does the water drain in a washing machine?
The washing machine drain hose goes down about two feet into the plumbing drain standpipe. (In some machines, the drain hose may simply be clamped onto the side of a washtub, though this is not an acceptable practice anymore.) From there, the water then goes into a drain trap.
