I recently replaced the centerpost gasket #383727 and it stopped the leak. Do you recommend installing the centerpost bearing kit #285203 to avoid future problems as part of the procedure? Thank you very much.
Answer Jeff, Normally not. If there was water leaking, or traces of a leak, on the drive tube assembly, or if there was an awfully loud noise in the spin, or excess "wobble" in the tub, then you'd want to consider the bearings and seals, otherwise leave well enough alone.
When the washer goes into the rinse cycle, water comes out the bottom of the washer. What part do I need to fix this? Thank you, Larry
Answer Hello Larry,
Without the model number, we can't go into specifics. With a top load machine, I would suspect the drain pump. If I'm thinking of the correct model, the pump is made of plastic and a string will bind the impeller and cause excessive pressure and friction on the pump, melting through the pump housing and causing a leak. If you would like a more specific diagnosis and illustrations on the replacement procedure, please re-post with a model number.
