I have a leak coming from bottom of tub area dripping off brake and trans. Only when washer on high fill not on low load. replaced center post gasket and still doing the same thing. Where else could it be coming from? Definitely not pump or hoses. How about any seals on the centerpost itself?
Answer Terri, You did follow the instructions and reccomendations from the video attached to the tub seal part number, right ? The only other seal would be in the top of the spin tube, agitator shaft, and there should be no water up in that area, unless the washer is overfilling. Besides if it were the agitator shaft seal, the water would drip from the clutch brake assembly then onto the transmission. You mat want to remove the spin tub and check the tub seal for distortion or loss of the seal around the shaft tube. Thanks and Good Luck
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
Is it common for the centerpost gasket to go out on this model? As soon as i turn it on to fill, there is a flood comming out from under it. Checked all hoses, no leeks. its got to be some type of gasket. HELP!!! Its driving me off the deep end. Thankyou for your time and help!
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
