How to Fix a Frigidaire Water Leak

Regardless of if you own a Frigidaire refrigerator, dishwasher, or washing machine, chances are that you may sooner or later notice that the appliance is leaking.

Dishwasher

While you could check some general issues when one of these appliances has a leak, the process you will follow to fix a leak ultimately depends on which of your Frigidaire appliances is leaking.

Step 1

Measure your detergent with exactness. Don't place more detergent in the dishwasher than is recommended.

Step 2

Avoid spilling rinse aid. If you do spill rinse aid, wipe it up before starting a cycle. Spilled rinse aid can lead to more foam in the dishwasher. Too much foam may cause leaking problems.

Step 3

Turn the dishwasher's adjustable feet to level the appliance if the dishwasher's feet on each side are uneven with the floor. Use a wrench if the feet don't turn.

Refrigerator

Step 1

Pull out on the refrigerator to roll it away from the wall.

Step 2

Turn the nut on the water line at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator. This nut tightens the connection between the water line and the inlet connection.

Step 3

Push the refrigerator to roll it back into place.

Washer

Step 1

Pull on the washer to move it away from the wall. Slowly "walk" the washer backward one corner at a time if necessary.

Step 2

Tighten the hot and cold water hoses. Check the connections from the wall valve as well as on the washer itself.

Step 3

Push the washer to scoot it back into place.
