    I have the same washer and was having the same issues. I made the mistake though of checking my hoses while my washer was EMPTY. I found nothing wrong, everything was tight and looked to be fine. Today however, I found out that I should've checked the connections while the washer had a little bit of water in it (afterall, if it's leaking then you need water in it to determine where the leak is coming from. You should partially fill with water and do not put any clothes inside while performing your check). Because I found nothing wrong with the connections and it was only a small amount of water (which by the way the water was coming out of the front, or appeared to be) I continued to run the washer since I had a drain next to it in the basement. Anyway today my GFI tripped shutting the washer off, and my son told me that there was tons of water pouring onto the floor. Now I have a washer full of clothes and water and I pull out the washer, guess what I find? My drain hose has a pin hole in it. Had I checked with water in the washer, I would've learned this before having such a mess to clean. And if it's leaking in the front don't assume that it must be the water pump. It could still be something as inexpensive as a drain hose with water running from the back coming out from under the front. My boys will be down there all day with a bucket under the pin hole in the drain hose and using a huge cup in the loading area to drain all the water so I can remove the hose and replace it. I have to get all the water out prior to removing the hose. Hopefully someone who is having the same issue as I was, can learn from what I just posted. I will warn you though that I have made several calls and online searches and nobody so far carries that hose for this brand .... hopefully my luck will change by the time the washer empties. Lucky for me I have a laundromat across the street too so I can haul that wet load of towels over and finish washing them and carry them back home to dry them so they don't get t hat mildew odor stuck in them!

Can you describe where the leak may becoming from? For example, near the front, from under the washer, or near the back.

If you notice a pool of water coming from under the washer near the FRONT, this is commonly caused by a leaking water pump. Since these pumps are sealed units and are considered non-serviceable, it must be replaced. They cannot be resealed or "fixed".

If the leak appears to be leaking from under the washer near the CENTER of the tub, either the tub seal is leaking or the air dome hose may have come loose. If the tub seal is leaking, it also must be replaced. If the air dome hose comes loose, however, the washer will never fill up all the way and will continuously run. This will cause a flood rather than a drip.

If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, this can be caused by cracked fill hoses, loose fill hose connections, a leaking drain hose, or a fill valve hose leaking.

Since you said you checked your hoses, I suspect a water pump, or something loose. Can you please confirm your symptoms and let me know?

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer was leaking underneath while running, I removed the back panel and dropped the drain hose to the floor and extended it out the door to the yard and while filling the tub...


The drain hose must be at least level with the top of the actual tub in the washer. The water pump is only bad if it is leaking. If it is leaking from the front you either have a cracked outer tub, but it sounds like your water pump, easy to change out just get the model # and order it through an appliance parts distributor. The cost is about 40 to 50 bucks. good luck!

Ultimate Care 2 is leaking water and not from hoses. Only in use.Is there a easy fix for this?


Check the washer tub gasket seal.. Normally located under the base of the tub. May just need to tighten any bolts that are loose around the gasket if there is one.

Ultimate care supreme leaks underneath


First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

Water leaks


If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)
