I'm renting a place to live that came with a front loading washer & dryer in a laundry/utility room. They had it put in the lease that the washer & dryer would remain but was "as is" so they wouldn't repair it if it tore up. I noticed water leaking in the room a week or so ago and reported it to the owner's rep thinking it was either due to all the snow melting just outside the room or a leak from the bottom of the water heater, which was covered by insulation. The owner came by with a man who checked all over the room and determined the leak was coming from the washing machine, from the bottom. The owner said I had to clean the water up and either stop using the washer or pay to have it repaired. She also insinuated that if I continued to use the washer and water from leakage damaged anything, like the furnace out there, she would come back on me. Now, I guess I can see that to a certain extent however the leak was not a result of any negligence or abuse on my part. I am wondering if there is any possible way that there's a simple fix to the leak??? I doubt there is but can't find anything online about this model except that they frequently fail after only being a few years old. The owner said this machine is about 5 years old. There's no way I'm going to spend a hundred dollars or more to have someone else's appliance fixed. I'm also wondering if I can request and push for her to move it out so I can put one of my own in, which of course, I'll take with me when I move out. I'm thinking about sending an email telling the rep that I need to either move it out myself or they can move it out but don't want to be too pushy about it if I have no right to expect it. The problem is that I can't get another washing maching in the room, much less hjooked up, with this one there.
