Water leakage in Samsung Front Loader Washer during washing

Last Update Date : Oct 19. 2018

Small leaks are easily addressed with some basic maintenance. Follow these steps:

1 When water leaks through door gasket (diaphragm) during operation, it could be due to the following causes:

• Door gasket (diaphragm) is damaged/torn or Wire diaphragm came off
Replace with a new door gasket (diaphragm) if it is damaged. Contact our Samsung Call Centre for further assistance.

• Foreign materials on door gasket (diaphragm) or door glass
Clean the glass door and door gasket (diaphragm) of your Front loader for a leak proof seal

• Poor sealing status
Check if there is a small gap between door gasket (diaphragm) and door glass. Change the door-hinge if the gap is not caused by foreign materials accumulation
Clean the Glass Door
Clean the Door Gasket
2 Always use the right amount of HE detergent during washing . Detergent residue buildup may also cause water to leak from the back of the Washing Machine through the Safety Air Vent. Perform a few rounds of Self Clean Cycle to remove any residues
