leak from the center under the basket and water runs down the right front strutt when looking at the front of the machine. water drips pretty fast but machine still runs. can't see exactly where the leak is coming from other than it appears from the center of the outer basket. is this the centerpost seal leaking and what is involved in installing a new one? thanks.

ANSWER Johnm, Based on your post information and description, your centerpost gasket/seal is leaking, or you may have a crack in the outer tub(rare, but possible). It will require removing the cabinet, and tub assembly(s) and a hammer and spanner wrench TJ90TB123A and basic hand tools. It's not a very hard repair to perform and you should be able to complete the repair in less than an hour. Theres also a very comprehensive video, attached to the parts diagram 383727 for you to review. Thanks and Good Luck
