Water leak Frigidaire top loader
« on: January 25, 2010, 10:26:53 AM »

Frigidaire FWS223RFS0 Washer. Doesn't leak when not in use. But, when you do a load of laundry it leaks a small amount of water on the right hand side front of the washer.

Any ideas where to start?

I need to be able to modify my post! Just read this and it rings a bell:

The pump :  If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.

The machine makes a squealing noise a little during a cycle, kinda sounds like a belt. Maybe its the pump then?
