Washer drain leak 36RE

Ran the washer first time and when it pumped out to rinse flooded left front side.
Is there a flex hose on pvc drain line maybe that let go or came off or got pinched? Between slideout and bed pedestal. Is there a improved fix for this issue

What is the best procedure to repair and inspect?

Pull bed platform top lid? I have a drawer there maybe i can get to through there?

Please advise

Sorry to hear this. We have been talking about this very thing in the "What did you do to your Redwood today?" The whole washer dryer area is very prone to leaking due to the slide moving in and out, and poor Quality Control.

This is something I heard about from day one when I bought the RW. I inspect the drain and water lines to the washer every time I put the slides in and out in the bedroom. I fixed the flex drain and the waterlines under the bed so they coil better but I still check them a lot do not want leak or flooded out bedroom. So far have not had any issues but glad I read the forum before using the washer because ours was loose and would have leaked.

I had the same problem and found it with the first load of water only in the new washer. In my case the solid piece of rubber hose that goes into the abs pulled of the flex pipe. Looks like it was glued on. Rerouted and repaired the flex and no issues since

There is a hard black1.5" pvc line screwed to the floor coming out of wet wall washer drain

The other pvc line comes out of floor both have male adapter fittings with a compression nut
Like a sink drain adapter fitting.
The vynyl flex line has tapered ends that fit inside the compression
Very loosely light tug it came apart again


Upon disassembly i found no washers or orings on either end a light tug and it would come apart

So i went to orange box store bought new compression fitting with nylon washers put new fitting on flex tighten onto pvc adapter used 1 1\2" 1 1/4" washer tight fit snug fit but tight as heck

Reinstalled flex very tight wont come apart now need to leak check today

Hopeful this fixed it

How do i post pics on this site?

Karl will send pics asap
