Water leaking from underside of washer tub

  • Customer: Eric from Victoria MN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I first removed the front panel of the washer and removed 2 screws holding the top of washer in place. I had to flip the top up. This allowed easy access to the tub. I then removed the agitator by removing the set screw on the lower portion. From there I loosened the mounting securing device by using the nail punch and hammer inside of the tub (it was loosened by turning it clockwise). The tub was now loose and I removed it from the washer. Next I removed the torx set screw and the tapered hub unit (cork on it). It had to be again loosened with the hammer and nail punch and turning it clockwise. This exposed the part that needed to be replaced. I replaced the old with the new and the washer now works great with no leaks! Be sure to clean everything you remove that will be reassembled.

Since my missus keeps her appliances like new, it behoves us to buy something of good quality when new. We did that. Now, after almost 20 years, the washer complained it needed new belts, which I complied. Tilted it up against the wall after pulling power cord. Removed both belts and replaced. Adjusted pump belt by loosening pump and then retightening. This is easy to get to by removing front (removing 2 philips screws). Piece of cake.

water leaked while filling or in rinse model

  • Difficulty: Easy

First I removed the two screws to pull off the front panel. I then removed the two screws (1/4 inch head) in the upper front corners. Removed clamp from siphon break and carefully worked off hose. After a couple of failed efforts to put hose on dry I put some o-ring type grease on the barb and it went on easier. The clamp was a bit difficult too but take your time and it will go on. Putting injector end in tub required patients. Reassembly was reverse of above. All good for another 25 years!

put on the new belt. it also smelled like smoke when we first ran. upon further inspection, saw that the drum was not turning easily. felt around the top inside edge of the drum, found the real problem- there was a sock jammed on the top edge between the drum and rim. removing the sock was easy, and then everything worked great!

Took all the parts related to the drive shaft and replaced the tub seal. We also replaced drive and pump belts due to an overheating smell coning from washer a couple months back.

Water leaking onto floor

Observed source of leak by lying on floor behind washing machine and placing hand in likely spots. Found water injector hose was source. Searched web for instructions to open up washing machine: 2 screws at bottom of front panel, then 2 screws at top inside after removing front panel. Easy after that. Lots of rust and rusty screws and rusty tinnerman nuts; had to grind off one of the screws with dremel tool.

I viewed and followed the PartSelect Instruction Video. My only problem was reattaching the door after the hinges fell off.Everything fell into place as the video indicated. After I regrouped I was able to put the hinges back and then I was able to reattach the side panel very easily as the vedio indicated. Thanks for everything.
