       washing machine won't drain The door boot-seal (bellows) on a front-load washer,
       reliable appliance repair The machine's pressure switch/water level switch,
       appliance repairman near me The door locking mechanism (door catch) on a front-loading washer,
       washing machine repair colorado springs The tub seal or boot seal between the tub and transmission,
      Among the list of possible causes or water leaks is the external hoses.   Check for splits in rubber hoses along their lengths.   With the faucets partially on, check to see if there are leaks at the connectors to the water supply and the hose connection to the machine.  If a leak is detected along the hose itself, this is an easy fix – and leaky hoses should be replaced with their braided metal counterparts for added strength.
      A leak stemming from the washer's inlet valve may manifest as a spray of water from the area where the fill hoses connect to the machine.  Inlet valves are almost always made of plastic and can therefor develop cracks.  To replace the inlet valve requires disassembly of the unit so it is best to find a repair video online that is specific for your model number.  
      Failure of the pressure/water level switch can be a relatively easy diagnosis because the tub will continue to fill, at every setting, beyond the normal fill levels and until the tub begins to overflow. This may indicate that the pressure sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.  This is located behind the control panel, so be sure to investigate how to open this part of your machine to swap out the sensor.  Alternatively, there may simply be a clog along the tube that runs from the bottom of the tube to the sensor itself.  While this is a diy fix that has not cost associated with it does require opening the machine to inspect/clean the tubing.  Make sure that all water is drained from the machine before attempting this and to investigate how to open this part of your washing machine.
      If you are not sure how to proceed with this repair, or don't have an interest in diy repairs, please call us for assistance.  We'd be most happy to perform this repair for you and ensure that the job is done right!
