Have you ever walked into a puddle of water while doing laundry? If the water is coming from your washing machine, it could be a sign you have a clog somewhere. The first thing you should do is locate where the leak is coming from. Is it coming from the back or the front of the washer?

If the water is leaking from front of the washer, usually there is a clogged tube. The build-up of detergent is the source of the clogs. It’s recommend to use less detergent to avoid build up. However, if there is a leak coming from the back of the washer, it could be a hose problem. Check to make sure it is properly secured. If the leak doesn’t stop then contact the help of an Omaha appliance repair team.
