Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My top load whirpool washing machine leaks during spin cycle.

When in the SMALL load only, the washer leaks in the spin cycle. It seems to come from the top / rear of the tub as if the splashing from the spin leaks out. We have taken it apart several times and have determined that none of the hoses ot valves are leaking.
The machine was purchased in the summer of 2006.
It is just the basic model with a small, medium and and super loads.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
