My washer leaks during filling and I am incompetent repair person

Thanks in advance for answering this.
I have a Whirlpool topload washer. It leaks during filling. What could be the cause?
the repairman wants to charge 85 bucks for a housecall and 50 bucks an hour plus parts. I can buy a similar washer for about 350-400K.
Should I try to fix it myself and bleed or buy a new one (and bleed cash?) What could be the problem?

thanks,
Joematty

What is the model number (from the machine)and age of the machine also where are you seeing the water? First check both ends of the fill hoses and the hoses for any breaks also inlet valve may be bad. Leaking on fill I'd start there. Let me know hope this helps.

My Whirlpool Toploader washer model LSR8233JO1 stops at rinse cycle after draining. I have to manually advance it to the spin cycle and sometimes it won't spin.


Dawntm,
It is possible that you have a timer issue since you say you are having to manually advance the timer. There is a small motor mounted on the timer that normally advances the timer and for some reason, possibly a burned contact, it is not advancing from that point. You might need to call in a repair tech. Hope this helps!

My whirlpool top load washer is leaking out the front side, no hoses are leaking.


Hello there:
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. I will post this solution in 2 seperate posts for you ok?
You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these: Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it. The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

GE WBSE3120B toploader washer leaks only during agitation when super load selected. Is it the pressure switch for water fill level or another possible leak?


knowing this is the only time it leaks helps
sounds like your suffering from suds leak

try cutting way back on your soap 1 tablespoon per load that should take care of your issue

Washer leaks during fill up


check the bottom of the inlet hose where it enters the machine. It is most like;y a split hose or a corroded valve.

Whirlpool washer lsq9010pw -Timer not advancing


you can also check to see if the timer motor is good. not a good idea to bypass. if the presure switch was bad it would not stop filling up.

LG Toploader Wash cycle won't work


check for the water seal first if it is leaking! if it does, then it might just be the one causing slipping.
