No, just tilt the machine back. The pump is held on by two clips, and two clamps to the hoses. Make sure it is leaking from the pump. Not very common.

Where is the rear windshield washer motor and how do I get to it to replace it?


The pump is located on the lower back side of the washer reservoir. To access, you need to remove the inner fender guard of the passenger side front. Remove the screws for the guard, the bottom of the reservoir is in front of the tire. There are two pumps, one for the front washer and one for the rear. Replace the faulty one. This job should take approximately 20 minutes, max.

My Ultimate Care II washer starts leaking from the bottom front of the washer as soon as it starts to fill with water.


Good day,
That's almost always a bad pump. It is located in the front middle of the machine, at the bottom.
I'm enclosing a tutorial that is not limited to changing the pump, but it will get you there.
Note: The screws for the top console are located in 3 different locations. Both bottom corners, both bottom corners but hidden by two plastic end caps, and lastly, on the back.

Noisy spinning and water leak


The noisy spinning on this model washer is usually the drain pump bearing going bad which could also be a possible cause of the leak. Unplug the washer, Tilt your washer back and rest it against the wall. Remove the belt and manually turn the drain pump pulley, if it is hard to turn either way or is grinding or noisy it will need to be replaced. The leak is a little harder to find. Remove the front bottom and top panels, run the washer, stay back with a flashlight and look where the leak is. If the drain pump is bad it is likely leaking. Next check the center, bottom of the tub for leaks, if the leak is her it is likely the cause of both problems. The tub seal is leaking and has ruined the tub bearing. The tub seals and bearing would need to be replaced. Very involved job, and I would suggest you call a servicer with the expensive tools and knowledge to do the job. There is also a bearing on the bottom of the transmission which could be noisy but would not cause a leak. Hope it is only your drain pump.
Please rate this post. Thank You

There is water leaking out of the bottom of the washing machine


I would check to see if the pump is leaking. Tilt the washer up and put on two peices of 2x4. Shine a trouble lite under washer and take a mirror to look under the washer. Fill 1/2 full of water and advance timer to the spin cycle. Observe to see where the water is comming from. The pump is located at the front of the washer.
If water is leaking from the pump. Replace pump.

He3t washer leaking corner bottom


You will need to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door to gain access to the inside cabinet to see where the leak may be coming from. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the washer up with something (a 2x4 works well for this) will give you better access to the screws.

The most common source of leakage on this washer is the rubber bellow around the door. It can develop cracks or tears over time and require replacement. A tell-tale sign is the front counterweight (looks like a concrete block on the front of the wash tub) looking wet. The counterweight will remain dry if the tub is sealed properly. From the inside of the washer, pull the rubber folds back on the door bellow and inspect the perimeter for any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385211-replacing_door_bellow_whirlpool_duet

If the bellow is intact, check the rear bellow seal where it connects to the front of the wash tub. If the clamp comes loose the bellow can shift and begin to leak. Tighten if necessary.

Check the drain pump and hoses to ensure they are not leaking. The drain pump is directly in the front under the wash tub.

Check the area directly below the wash tub. If the leak is coming from the wash tub iteself, you may have a bad tub seal. A replacement gasket doesn't cost much at all, but the labor involved is extensive.

Another simple problem is the dispenser tube(s) that come through the door bellow. Sometimes, these small tubes will work their way behind the rubber in the door and leak when the washer attempts to fill or rinse. This is a simple matter of adjusting the tubes to ensure they are seated through the door gasket properly.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: You can refer to searspartsdirect.com for some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer for reference in locating components.

Water leaking from rear seal


It is extremly difficult to change the seal and or bearings on a front load washer.

I'm a sears technician, and it is a 2 hour job for two of us to do it, and we know what has to come off and have done it, several times.

The cost of the job, is approx $450 for parts and labour.

Front load washer leaks


It's not difficult to line up the boot around the door. The difficult part is taking out the tub (basket and plastic shell). Everything needs to be disconnected, and removed from the back, as well the tub is very heavy and best to do as a two person job.

If your washer is only 5 years old, it's kind of a 50/50. The cost (with labour) to fix the leak would come to approx $450 cdn.

arlenekc : The water pump needs replaced.

malibu66,: Replacing the pump is not difficult at all.

In the above cases, Tilt the machine back so you have access to the bottom. (It there is a soft bottom plate you will have to remove it.) The pump it located on the bottom of the motor and is held on by two clips. Remove the hoses ant then the clips. The pump should slide off the motor shaft. If the pump does not come off then you will have to break it off. DO NOT pry on the motor or shaft. Once the pump is off check the motor shaft for any rust or build-up. This will have to be removed before a new pump is installed.

Line the pump up to the motor shaft to get it in place and put the unit back together then check the operation.

LITTLEGIRL4 Open the lid and find the water flume where the water comes in. This flume gets out of position sometimes. Start filling the machine and watch the flume. If there is water dripping or running down the sides toward the rear then the flume is not in position or has been damaged.
