I have an Electrolux EWF 1087 Front loader washing machine and have recently had a problem with a leak. It happened during the fill stage (water going in) before the spin cycle. At first water leaked out of the bottom of the machine (couldn't see where) and then it squirted out the front of the machine around the rubber seal (near the bottom of the seal where the door seals). After reading around it seems that this can be due to the three holes bridging the outer drum to the inner drum (at the bottom of the rubber ring seal) being blocked. I'm not sure what the purpose of these are. If the outer drum fills with water then water should seep through the holes in the washer drum and partially fill the inner drum. The way water squirted up it was like there was a build up of pressure. Those holes were a little clogged up (but not badly), so I am wondering if this could cause the leak out the bottom of the machine and out the front. The bottom leak started first. Any clues? Thanks
