My whirlpool washer leaked all over yesterday first time in 6 years, Pump OK, Hoses OK could it be the center post gasket
also bottom of Gear case assembly wet and little rusty.
You will want to check the agitator for cracking and check to make sure that the outer tub is not cracked on the unit next to where the centerpost seal is located. The centerpost seal on these units normally would not be the issue. Double check to make sure that the pump is not leaking as this is the most common place for the leak to occur. You may want to put some water in the unit and see if you can locate where the leak is originating from.
AT THE END OF THE SPIN CYCLE THE WASHER MAKES AN UNUSUAL CLANKING NOISE. I CHECKED THE TUB AND NOTICED I COULD PULL UP ON THE TUB SEVERAL CENTIMETERS AND THE TUB SITS TOWARD THE RIGHT WHEN STOPPED( WILL NOT STAY CENTERED). IT DOES NOT LEAK WATER. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS TO LOOK AT FOR REPAIR.
Answer Don, The "clanking noise at the end of the spin cycle is most likely the drive block 389140 rotating on the drive tube 285792 because the drive block tab slots are worn out, when the brake and tube stop, the drive block and tub continue to rotate. The tub sitting off to one side is usually due to a loose or broken suspension spring 63907 or bracket, or in some cases the tub has gone off balance, and over rotated and the skid plate and pads are "hung up" and not allowing the tub to re center properly.
Ok , I've got my washer apart to the point of pulling the inner tub out so I can change the tub seal but the inner tub is stuck to the shaft and wont slide off. I've got penetrating oil on it and have been tapping it with a wood block and hammer but no luck.
To get the tub out you will need to rock the tub back and forth. If it still will not come off the you will need to try to find an adjustable spanner with a hooked end. Place the hook of the wrench in the slot of the drive block and give the wrench handle a tap with a hammer.
