Brent for Model Number RAX4232PQ0

ANSWER Brent, you can verify if the leak is from the tub centerpost seal by removing the cabinet, bypass the lid switch and fill the unit. "1. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the front corners of the console to the washer top. (in most cases the two phillips head screws are on the rear end caps on the back of the console). 2. Tip the console back on the hinges that secure the top of the console to the washer back. ACCESSING COMPONENTS INSIDE THE WASHER CABINET Components inside the washer cabinet can be accessed by completely removing the outer cabinet as one unit. 1. Remove the console mounting screws and tilt the console into the service position. 2. Unplug the lid switch harness connector from the receptacle in the washer top. 3. Remove the cabinet mounting clips by placing the flat blade of a screwdriver in the clip. 4. Remove the cabinet by tilting it forward and pulling it away from the washer. 5. The rear panel can be tilted back for additional access to components at rear of machine bytwisting the rear panel support 90°. and then tilting the rear panel back". You can check if the leak is from the seal or if you have a damaged hose or pump, and go from there. Good Luck and Thanks
