Question about Washing Machines
I have a 90 day old Whirlpool Cabrio topload and it worked perfectly for 60 days then began leaking intermittently. First one load out of 6 or 8, and only a little. Now it leaks HUGE and every load. Seems only when draining - not filling (spraying) or washing. Drain hose and water inlets are fine and dry, and the water is coming from inside, apparently from the rear right corner when facing the machine. I used to think it was overspray from inside the top of the tub if and when a load was too small and the auto water fill was selected, but now I think I may have something inside the washer maybe interfering with the internal drain outlet. I purchased the service agreement and extended warranty but hate to call and wait for a repair man if this is something I can check for and easily remedy myself. Any ideas? Could it be possible dirt, debris or a small piece of clothing is blocking the drain or you think we actually have a defect-related leak?
Sounds like you may have a small hole or a failure in a seal somewhere, is there a filter on the drain you could check this is secure and free from debris, is it possible that the drain hose has been kinked during a spin and possibly leaked? if it only leaks when it drains it is defenatley somewhere in the drain system. I would use your Insurance on this one Top loaders can be difficult to work with as the space inside them is very limited.
