SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer Model LSQ9030PQ5 is leaking

This depends on how significant the leak is. The gearcase (transmission) contains an amber colored oil. Some of this oil can leak out through a small breather hole on the top of the transmission case. If all you are getting is a small puddle that does not appear to be getting worse, you may continue to use the washer (sometimes for years) with no problems, If the leak is bad, however, it may be time to replace the gearcase. Replacing the gearcase is not a difficult task, but it can take about an hour or two for the inexperienced. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace the gearcase:

Read through the link provided to see if this is a repair you feel comfortable with attempting. The average cost of a replacement gearcase is about $150. The part number for your washer is 3360629. You can purchase replacements at any of the following websites:

NOTE: Sometimes Sears offers a refurbished gearcase for about half the price of a new one. It will be listed in their parts listing with an "R" after the part number is available.

All these sites are reputable and offer great service. Prices vary, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also include helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifing the parts you need. It can also assist you in determing how to assemble/disassemble your appliance. The gearcase is listed as item 9 under the "Brake, Clutch, Gearcase, Motor and Pump" heading.

The decision to replace certain parts can also depend on the age of the washer. The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. The following link explains how you can determine your washer's age:

Whirlpool washers are usually pretty resilient and fairly easy and inexpensive to repair. I have known many of them to last 15 to 20 years. $150 is still cheaper than purchasing a new washer. The decision is still yours, however.

My advice to you is to read through the link provided and review the steps for removing the washer case. Remove the exterior case so you can get a real good look at how bad the leak is. If there is an oil spray pattern all round the interior cabinet walls of the washer, its time to replace the gearcase. If the leak is just a small puddle, clean it up and place a sheet of carboard under the washer so you can monitor how much it leaks in the future. My experience has been that its not worth the effort to attempt to remove the gearcase and try to reseal it. If you're going to go through the whole process of removing the gearcase, you it would be smarter just to replace it with a new one, rather than possibly having to repeat the pocess again if sealing it doesn't work.

As I stated earlier, some of these leaks are insignificant and the washer will run with no problems. As long as the gearcase does not make any loud or unusual noises and the leak does not get any worse, you can still get some good use out of the washer. Please let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you decide.

I need a knob , for why washing machine

I buy parts at

They keep my old Maytag going

You can also google-search 'Maytag washing machine parts'

You need to know your model number ... so there is a metal tag located on back of machine that has this information.
The tag has all kinds of little numbers that are hard to read

I have a tip for all your appliance labels ...
Take a photo of the tag with your digital camera, and then download the full-size photo to your computer. This will make numbers easy to read. And you have a record of all your model numbers with voltage and amperage when you go comparison shop for a replacement.
The tag tells me the machine is 120V and 7Amps, which means it uses 840Watts (120 X 7) ... so each hour it runs, it uses .84 Kilowatt-hours or .84Kwh of electricity and now I can figure how much it costs each year to operate the appliance.

What is the acuwash sensor

Washer temperature sensors and water level settings
The temperature of your washer's water varies with your laundry care needs. Standard washer models typically feature three temperature settings: Hot/Cold, Warm/Cold, and Cold/Cold—and higher-end models often offer as many as six or seven temperature settings. Temperature plays a key role in the effectiveness of your detergent—pairing the right detergent with the right setting for your fabrics and soil is important, as this will help reduce damage, prevent detergent residue, and provide the best wash across fabric types. For the best fabric care, look for washing machines with automatic temperature control (ATC). A sensor will control water temperature and ensure cold washes are above 60 degrees (F) to dissolve detergents, and warm washes do not exceed 93 degrees (F) to help prevent shrinking and bleeding.

The amount of water you use for each load also affects washer performance. Doing laundry is a bit like a science project. You need to make sure you are using the right volume of water, with the proper amount of detergent based on the dirt level of the laundry being cleaned. Too much of one component can result in a less-than-perfect outcome. Standard washing machines allow you to select water levels for different size loads, but some models offer more water-level options. Washers with automatic water levels use sensors to determine load size and adjust water level for best cleaning and rinsing performance. You will generally find these options in higher-priced top-loading washers. A benefit of front-loading washing machines is that most come with this automatic water-leveling feature.

Whirlpool® AccuWash™ temperature control sensor provides a temperature-controlled wash.

this is an article from the whirpool website, u can get a manual printed or downloaded by going to and going to owners center and typing in ur model number.......

My washing machine will not spin

The same thing happened to my Maytag washing machine and the first thing I checked was the air pressure hose. A small piece of tubing that ran from the bottom of the tank to the indicator for size of load. Could either be blocked or detached at one end. To access it I had go to the back of the machine. I found the diagram on the web when I search for model and "agitator not spinning". Good luck.

Cannot find the model number on my Whirlpool washing machine. It is a top loading machine, with such features as: 4 Load size, 4 Tempature settings, 8 cycles, 4 speed combinations, commercial quality....

If this was a scratch and dent model, model number may have been removed prior to sale. If not, you should find it on the back edge of the washer at the very top as you look over the back of the machine. If you can't find a model number, bring the part(s) you need to a servicer. They may be common parts or there may be some identifying numbers on the parts themselves. Good luck.
