Water splash sheild ineffective

The washer splashes water out from under the splash shield during each use. It is rusting the left side of the unit and collecting on the floor. Has whirlpool devised a solution to fixing this problem with a redesigned shield, or is there a way to stop this problem?

    I have same problem - machine is about 5 years old, and recently started dripping water in left rear. It happens about 10 minutes into the cycle when water is being sprayed into the tub - I only have 1 splash shield on the right side of the tub, so am wondering if I am missing 1 or 2 more that should be in the back and left side (?)

    Hello, I followed the instuctions that Laura gave and it worked wondefully, but beware! How much water is left in the washer will end up on your floor, so make sure you have lots of big cups with you to collect the water that shoots out. I found a pair of my daughers panties and a loonie!

My machine may be a different model, but seems to have similar problems. I resolved this by: a) making sure the splash shield is fastened correctly at all points round the tub (it worked loose) b) as a temporary fix reversed the foam gasket inside the splashshield until I get a new one

Is water supposed to enter the tub during the first half of the final spin cycle (not rinse cycle)?

no spin cycle don't have water it could be the pump is not getting the water out fast enough, could be clogged or the rear drain pipe is blocked or bent. failing them to problems it could be the valve its self.

Leaking from bottom middle and right side of door

The center spray arm may not be turning straight and level, causing water to spray over the top of the splash shield. The shield needs to be adjusted to block water as it is sprayed from the center arm.

1. Remove the bottom door seal and reinstall, making sure there is not less than 3/8 inch of seal showing below bottom of internal door panel before closing the door.
2. Check tub seal, at the bottom the tub, seal makes a right angle and points to front of tub. In tub bottom there is a block molded in the tub, the tub seal is to fill this block but not extend over.
3. Select the shortest wash cycle or just use a rinse and hold cycle if available. Run the cycle, making sure the water spray changes from bottom to center not less than twice before making any adjustments.
4. If splash over is found, work only one side at a time. Remove black door seal enough to raise the splash shield up off the bottom of the tub not more than 1/8 inch and reinstall door seal properly. Retry and check for leaks.
5. If leak persists, remove door seal again. This time raise shield an additional 1/16 of an inch, then reinstall tub seal. After the first adjustment of 1/8 inch, any other adjustments will be no more than 1/16 inch at a time.
6. After splash over is stopped on one side go to the opposite side if needed.

My powersteering locked up twice in wet weather

If this happens as your hitting a large puddle then I would check to see if all of the splash shields are installed under the jeep. these help keep water off of the serpentine belt than turns the P/S pump. As you hit a puddle the water splashes up onto the belt causing it to slip reducing pump pressure.

Water on floor under washer

re; water under washer.
The ammount of water is from 1/4 to 1 cup after an individual load. It only became noticable reciently, after the last 3 or 4 heavy loads, using the manual setting on next to the top level. There is an automatic function, but due to the dirt and grit in the jeans I use manual.
