When we let the washer sit loaded with clothes and water in it it leaks water . Is there a seal to check or replace or is it a hose connection problem?

My washer is having an issue with the spin cycle, I've replaced the clutch and coupler (which both ended up being fine but I replaced them anyway). It will sometimes go into spin no problem, but other times it won't. The agitator works fine, and it pumps water out fine even when it doesn't spin. When it doesn't spin I can shake and bounce the basket a few times and it will eventually kick in, but every time it does kick in I hear a loud klunk sound. Not continuous, just a single klunk. Is the drain kit a possible fix for this?

During the wash cycle, the washer agitates, drains, pauses (which I believe disengages the neutral drain function) then spins with intermittent spray; all normal. During the rinse cycle, the washer agitates, drains, never pauses, & never spins. It does perform the spray function & stops at the end of the cycle. Since spin works during one part of the cycle but not the other, I am led to believe that an internal cam switch in the timer that feeds the motor is not performing the pause that allows the spin function to begin. Do I have a bad timer or something else?

Washing machine makes a popping noise when it reaches spin cycle, sounds like something stripped in gear case. I tore the gear case down and could not find nothing obvious, however some of the plastic pieces underneath the pinion in the neutral drain assembly showed some wear with plastic shavings in the oil. I can turn the pinion by hand and everything seems to work fine, but did appear to slip once making popping noise. will a neutral drain kit fix my problem or do i need a clutch assy???? P.S. I previously typed in wrong e-mail address.

I have a whirlpool model LSC9000PW0. It will begin having a slow & weak spin & then stop spinning altogether. I have replaced the clutch for the 3rd time in 3 years. Each time, the spin works like new for some time afterward. The problem this time seemed a little different/worse. I replaced the clutch again & decided to look further to see if I could prevent future problems. There has been oil inside the cabinet each time & it looked as if it was coming from the gear case cover seal (#3 on diagram) or the shaft seal (#6 on diagram) so I pulled apart the gear case & replaced both of those seals. I added the specified oil to the case after cleaning & reassembling as it was very low. While apart, I looked it over & had no unusual wear on any of the gears that I could see. While reassembling, I was unsure about the components of the neutral drain mechanism. Although they don't seem overly worn, they don't stay in place on the pins well & I am unsure that I assembled it correctly. Is the spring on the trip lever to be placed on the outside of the tab on the rack retainer (the side with the square hole)?? Should the spin pawl sit loosely or tightly on the bolt? It is very loose. The latch end seems to drop too low & hang up on the edge of the rack retainer when it swings outward. Is this normal? When I turned the coupling manually, the cam & follower worked properly & the spin pinion gear & shaft turned when they should have. However, the spin gear always turned & as I understand it this should not be the case. I thought it was possible that there would be a difference once installed due to speed & centrifugal force. When I reinstalled, at spin, the machine made a terrible noise. pulled it all apart & nothing wrong. reassembled & reinstalled. The machine sounds perfectly normal. Fills, agitates, drains. does NOT spin. The clutch housing does NOT spin. The only other problem I have is the thrust washer that sits on top of the clip of the clutch has a broken tab. Would it be best to order & install a new neutral drain mechanism? Or does it seem more likely that I assembled something incorrectly? Would the sticking brake issue I read about cause any of this? Thank you.
