Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

SOURCE: cleaning a whirlpool tub

The jets turn yellow from exposure to the sun, not much you can do except replace the jets (costly). What is leaking? if you broke the seal on a jet it will leak and have to be resealed.

SOURCE: i have the the aqualux whirlpool tub, do i

The square filter on the side it tough to get off because of a rubber seal the runs around it. However, once the screw is removed there isn't anything else holding it on. You're going to feel like you're getting ready to break something, but you'll have to work with it to get it off. You might try a flat head screwdriver or a razor and carefully run it between the seal and the tub to loosen it. It will come off, it's just a little bit hard. When you remove it, you'll see why it was so hard to get off...the soapscum is all over the inside of it and some of it hardens around the seal in spots. Hope this helps.

You can find a lot of the old jet trim pieces at US Parts Center or on Bath Parts Plus. Maybe you have already found them but if you are still looking for them. this is a good resource for trim for all bathtubs.
there are two ways to find the trim for your tub. Match up the trim in your tub to what is shown online at their site or email them photos of each part and they will find them for you.

Leaky washer

Janet I am VERY SURPRISED at this Whirlpool would do this...Shame on it! LOL. OK, Enough goofing around! Da Problem is Z in the Tub! It can be the following 1) Tub Seal (Most common) 2) Pump not draining (Second Most) 3) Washer exterior Drain to house. I forgot to mention this Is Very Common!. Janet these are the Easy fixes. The hard ones involve the tub being cracked (OMG!) or hose connections are cracked to/from washer and interior. Using the Wrong Soap! I know it is a reach but I have to mention it. If it is not the tub seal or the tub. You Gotta problem and you have to weigh the age of your washer vs purchasing a New one. If it is less than a yr old the Manufacture will take care of it. If you call Sears, plan on at least around $130+Parts. That may Pay for itself cause the person repairing it will guarantee the work. Good luck

Jacuzzi Asteria will not turn off

How do you turn this on? If it is an air button that you push, it may well be the air switch in the motor is bad. The air switch is latching so when you push the button on the tub it closes the switch and lets the power go to the motor. When the button is pushed a 2nd time the switch will open and shut off the power going to the motor.
An air switch will cost about $21 to purchase.

I'm trying to find a part for my whirlpool washer mod#wtw6200sw3. It is the outer tub shaft seal. fsp 6545958

Hello Robby, welcome to FixYa.

I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to and unfortunately it isn't good. Many times this is associated with the basket drive assembly, in fact I don't think you'll find that part as a stand alone component.

Where did you get that number, on the actual part perhaps ? Many times the manufacturer will stamp parts with identification numbers as they are built, but they do not become available for individual part sales, only assembly line.

To obtain that seal will require the purchase of a complete a tub assembly unfortunately...unless you can match the seal specs. to an aftermarket seal manufacturer (though the seal has likely worn for reason's of shaft or bearing wear/failure).

Depending on the age of your washer you should inquire about warranty. (you will likely require a proof of purchase and your owners manual)

**I'd suggest contacting your local Whirlpool service/warranty provider as these have a two - five year (parts only...check your owners manual for confirmation) warranty on the tub and bearing components**

I'll watch for your reply and certainly help you in any manner I can. Thank you for visiting FixYa today and good luck.

I have a Whirlpool Duet. It is about 8 years old and used heavily (family of 8). It started making a really loud noise during the spin cycle. There is also some type of material peeling/crumbling off down...

The load noise is most likely the main bearing. What does the peeling crumbling material look like? It may just be soap scum/mildew or something. Let me know if I can help with anything else.
