Question about Whirlpool LSB6200KQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Whirlpool washer LA768M leaks water during the cycle.

During heavy loads in particular, water seeps out of the front of the washer. There has also been an oily substance associated with the leak. Is this a bad pump? How difficult is it to replace?

Hi, it does sound like a pump but, you should not have oil with it. Tip the washer back against the wall and look underneath to see if there is transmission fluid/oil leaking.
Please let me know and I can assist you with changing the pump.

Thanks
Vic

Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

If you have the capability its probably a leaking seal on the water input line at thetop of the water. Often its a simple hoseclamp that needs tightening. Without looking myself thats the easiest solution. Hope this helps!

Water leaking during rinse cycle


If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool washer is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:

If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water coming out of the botton during spin cycle


Take the bottom panel off the waher, put water in the machine, and watch to see where it is leaking. If you don't see a leak during the regular cycle, put the machine in drain and spin mode, and watch for leaks there. You should find your leak during one of these cycles so you will know what part you need.

that means that the water is leaking from the hows at the back of the detergent drawer.

This is not a difficult fix, however the washing machine must be taken apart to access the detergent hose and find the leak.

Always better to call a technician.
