Leak left bottom part Hotpoint HE8L493

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have a Hotpoint HE8L493 works fine but after I dropped my phone beside it (how fate makes us find things out eh) then ran my hand on the left bottom leg of my washer and I felt a bit of wetness/moisture and I wiped it with a tissue. I just finished a cycle of wash then and after that, I tried loading another cycle and I placed a tissue beneath it. After the cycle I had a look at the tissue. It isn't enough to soak it fully nor partially but there are some wetness on it.

 

I don't know if it is condensation or a leak? It's too small I think to be considered major leak or even felt as it doesnt even drop a water to the floor. You literally need to "press" your hand on the washing machine leg or dab a tissue to see the wetness. So is it a leak or what? Thanks!

Hello there. It's certainly something you need to keep an eye on in case it gets worse. It sounds from your description like it could be underneath the soap dispenser drawer. But leaks can run a fair way on from their source. They can also drip down and run around various parts to end up dripping in a separate place to where they started. I wouldn't expect much condensation unless it is kept in a cold environment. The only thing I can advise for now is if you want to try and find where the source of the leak is you will need to pull the washing machine out and inspect it.
