    My cabrio is four weeks off of warrantee. It has been leaking for 5 weeks and getting worse. Not it's completely flooding floor. The appliance store in Stamford CT., where i have been a loyal customer for 10 years is doing nothing. THeir service company says they don't repair that model.
    It was a very expensive machine that i was 'talked into' purchasing by the sales person. I would NOT recommend it.

Have a had a whirlpool cabrio washer for almost 3 years. It started as a small leak when it was draining to huge leak now where all the water is draining out all from the right front side.


Hello, the Cabrio has the drain pump on the right rear. Pull the washer out from the wall about 2.5 feet or so. Place a towel over the top edge of the control panel and lean the washer back against the wall so it rests there. Lay on the floor and, using a flashlight or headlamp, carefully inspect the drain pump for cracks, the rubber pipes for leaks, and check to see if the motor in the middle has water trails that look like water was slung out when spinning. These models are notorious for leakage from the tub seal at the center. Water drains down into the bearings and motor. I've also seen where the body of the drain pump cracks and leaks. Also, check the metal spring clips. They are notorious for being too loose for holding the rubber elbows and pipes on the plastic nipples under the tub--I never use them to repair a washer--I ALWAYS use automobile hose clamps purchased at auto parts stores--way better and DEFINITELY more reliable. You'll need the 1.5" to 2.5" sizes.

I have a Whirpool Duet HT and the bottom of the machine SOMETIMES leaks water from the bottom corner(same corner where the detergent is put in). Sometimes it leaks a small amount if water but sometimes it...


Common parts that leak on a front load washer:
Door boot (also know as gasket or bellow), drain pump, intake system (which is either intake valves or soap dispenser). From my experience in that order.
The door boot can be inspected from the inside although if you didn't find any holes could still be it. (so if you find a whole than it most likely it, but if you didn't find holes it does NOT rule it out since it has to be inspected properly from the inside.

Water leaking durIng cycle of machine what is a fix and a part number whirlpool cabrio


You need to give more details. It could be leaking from the water supply to the washer. A recirculating pump clamp could be loose, or a coin could have caused a small hole in the pump side wall. Or you might have a worn tub seal.

Leaking water from bottom


Hello there:
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. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub-

Whirlpool Front load washer - Water leaking


I would check to see if you have a hole or crack in the rubber boot inside the door. Open the door and seperate the fold in the rubber boot and check for a leak. If something sharp was left in someones pocket it will get stuck in this part of the bood.

Cabrio drains water onto floor.


I took the back cover off of the machine and found that the drain pump had a hole in it. The hole was caused by a coin that had made it's way down to the drain pump. The replacement pump cost $90.00 and was very easy to put in. If you google the words cabrio tear down you will come across a web site that has a video that shows you how to take the pump out. I have not had any leaks since. Keep the coins out of the washer, remeber to check your pockets to avoid paying out cash.

Brand new whirlpool cabrio began leaking


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.
