Re: water leaking thru motor - being flung by prop
Hi, welcome to FixYa. By "motor" are you perhaps talking aboout the water pump? it's mounted in the right front of the underside. The "prop" is the coolin fan for the pump motor. On a model GWL11 the part number is a 420324P. it comes as a complete unit. You need to change that pump as soon as possible if it is the source of the leak. If you let that go too long it can actually blow out the machine's main control board. You can get a replacement here: http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/item.php?item_id=216&category_id=46

Do you now where the leak is coming from? You may have to remove the outside sheet metal to observe the motor and tub. More than likely, the leak may be caused by a faulty pump or a seal in the pump.
If the machine overfills, you can get water on the floor as well, but you would notice that the machine appears too full.
The leaky bleach dispenser probably just needs to be removed, inspected and thoroughly cleaned. Water gets pumped thru it and any clog or problem with the pathway the water follows can cause overflow or a leak. BUT deal with the water problem first, that's the most important. A leaky pump will only get worse.
Also check the hose connections on the back of the washer. Old and cracked rubber washers can allow water to leak.
Somethnig is wrong with your transmission. Since it is leaking, the seals are broken or damaged. The water leaked in your transmission. The problem with Whirlpool washing machines, the motor is directly coupled with the transmission. There is a high probability that the leaking water corroded the transmission, thereby freezing it. Your best bet is to have the transmission and the water leak fixed. Do not run the washing machine till you have this fixed, otherwise, you face the chance of losing your motor.
you need to change out the water valve on the washer.open the door and look for the model number.call your parts store and give them the full model number off of the washer,look around the opening on the frame where the door closes into and they will sell you the correct part
Fault 130 in a Fisher & Paykel washer indicates a faulty Rotaty Position Sensor, or a faulty Motor Controller board.
F&P machines are quite technical and a seviceman should be called so that all components can be tested which interact with the faulty part.
This way you won't be replacing parts which might fail again, and a techs work will be covered by a warranty.
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but the best way to go in the long run.
TIP..... Before you call a tech you should look under the machine and check if there are rusty stains (or even clear water) on the bottom of the flywheel and/or of there are stains on the inside of the cabinet. These are caused by water leaking through the seals being flung from the flywheel onto the inner cabinet. If this is the case you'll need to add new bearings/seals and maybe a shaft to the bill..
131 error is 'repetitive Rotaty Position Sensor error'. It could be wiring, but more likely to be a problem with the RPS itself. It's not a huge job for a tech. Before spending any money, check under the machine and make sure that the inside of the cabinet hasn't had dirty/rusty water flung from the flywheel. If the cabinet is clean and there's no leaks from the small holes on the bottom of the flywheel it should be ok to fix. (Water leaks would be a terminal problem) Get a quote, but be aware that F&P machines can sometimes have a secondary fault which causes the primary problem!.....Good luck....Nomess
you will need a new tub seal kit part number 12002223. however these seals are very time consuming to change and most(90%) of the time will only temporaraly fix the problem. the seals are machine pressed in at the factory so changing the seal in the home doesn't hold up very long
My Maytag washer model #:sav515deww is leaking underneath during the spin cycle. I took off the 2 front panels. I have been told taht it is a bearing and a seal that are out. Replacement parts cost approx $90.00. Unit is 5 years old. Is it hard to fix? Thanks
The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.
The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.
The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.
The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.
The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.
Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.
The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
