Water leaks at Y connector

Last Update date : 2014.12.30


If you are connecting the water lines to your steam washer and dryer, and there is a leak at the "Y" connector, do the following:

    1. Turn off the cold water source valve.

    2. Remove both water lines from the "Y" connector by turning them counter clockwise.

    3. Then unscrew the "Y" connector from the back of your washing machine by turning the "Y" connector counter clockwise.

    4. Inspect the rubber seal for proper placement. If the rubber seal is not positioned properly, it will look like the image below and cause a leak.

    5. Remove and reinstall the seal. When the seal is properly installed, it will look like the image below.

    6. Reinstall the "Y" connector on the cold water inlet on the washing machine.


      Tighten the "Y" connector hand tight, then use a suitable tool, such as pliers, and tighten an additional 1/4 turn.

      • Reinstall both water lines to the "Y" connector

      • Turn the cold water source valve counter clockwise to the full open position.

      • Check for leaks.
