HomeWashing Machine Leaks

A leaking washing machine can be a silent destroyer of your laundry room flooring, walls, and cabinets, potentially creating a health hazard by causing rotting timber and mould. It’s important not to underestimate washing machine leaks; they can snowball quickly from a tiny leak into a major disaster if left unchecked.

What Causes Washing Machine Leaks?

  1. Blocked DrainsWhen there are blockages in your washing machine drainage pipe, the greywater from your laundry is forced to flow back into the washing machine instead of outwards, which causes your laundry room to flood.

    It’s not uncommon for small laundry items to end up in the drainage pipes causing blockages, so if you find yourself missing socks, it might be time to check the pipes.

  2. Burst or Leaking PipesTwo of the most common causes of burst or leaking pipes are increased water pressure and general wear and tear.

    Besides checking your water pressure, which we demonstrate how to do in this quick video, it’s advisable to arrange for a regular check of your general plumbing system to ensure the pipes are clear and your appliances are performing optimally.

Regular plumbing maintenance and servicing go a long way towards preventing costly and time-consuming repairs down the line.
