Causes of Appliance Leak
Most of the time homeowners don’t realize when their appliance isn’t functioning properly until a major problem occurs. Below are some of the most common ways an appliance can leak water:
When a dishwasher leaks it is usually because of a clogged or damaged drain line or supply line. Drain line leaks can be fast or slow and often contain bacteria. Supply lines can cause an overflow because of due to water pressure. If your dishwasher connects to your kitchen sink, it might cause water damage if your sink is not properly emptied or unclogged when the drain line is in use. It’s essential to get it professionally dried to prevent mold growth.
Water heaters often have several issues that can contribute to leaking including damaged or cracked pipes, a leaking tank, or broken fittings and seals. Malfunctioning water heaters also have the potential to burst, releasing gallons of water into your home in a blink of an eye. Depending on where they are located, a water heater can leak into walls and under floors, causing long-term damage if not dried properly.
Washing machine hoses are always pressurized and a broken line is like turning on the tap, so if a line bursts when you aren’t home or if your washing machine is in an area of your home that you rarely use, you could end up with significant water damage. Slower leaks from worn hoses and loose fittings can also cause water damage and mold growth on the walls behind the washing machine since you may not find it until the damage is done.
Heaters & Air Conditioners
Heating and cooling equipment are prime candidates for leaks. That is why it is essential to have a professional inspect your heating and cooling systems for leaks, damage, and blockages. Water leaks related to these systems are usually slow and hidden behind the walls & in the ceiling, meaning they can be difficult to find before mold starts to grow and cause even more damage.
A refrigerator line leak often goes unnoticed until the damage is already done. Refrigerators that come with a built-in icemaker has a supply line for water. This supply line can burst or crack and cause a significant amount of water damage. Some refrigerators can also fall victim to slow water leaks from the base, which can go unnoticed for a long period of time.
