    I only have a Use and care guide. It says "Super Capacity Two Speed Automatic Washers, LA6090XT LA6800XT LA7000XT LA7001XT. The washer does not have any other markings on it at all! It says Stylemaster 907675 on the lid.Oh we found model # Model # LA6800XTWO Ser# C93725572. It has a load size selector, temp selector, cycle control knobThere is a tub on the inside that is filled with holes and on the outside of that it has a plastic liner or tub. When filling this drips water, but we cannot find where it is coming from. So my husband is trying to remove the inner tub from plastic and we are at a stopping point because the shaft is stuck. We removed the inner nut ring but that is not working.

Hi, The plastic liner you are talking about, is it the outer tub? If you could get me a model#, I could look this up for you.
Please let me know if I can help.

    Hi, If you remove the cabinet, you can see the outer tub better. Here is how to remove the cabinet:


    Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two
    screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in
    front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise
    the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch
    harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.

    Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it

I have a Whirlpool washer that's leaking water onto the floor. Jason Harris told me to look under the heater i don't know where the heater is.

There is no heater on that machine.
Does the water leak as soon as you start the fill cycle or does it start to leak when the water level gets up to the agitator?

After each cicle of washing its coming on the floor some water like 50 ml

Whirlpool AWM6120
There are several items which may contribute to your issue at hand.
A plastic gasket seals the front to back portion right above the location where deprey gets caught when in wash cycle. When this builds up with trash and gunk not caught by the filter, it will cause water to leak out and eventually onto the floor. You may also have a build up in the drainage hose backup and release for dirty water. Check this area thoroughly!! You can also see exactly where the water is dripping so that we can identify what is the root cause of the water leak. Nothing sounds major so replacing the unit is not a good idea and would be expensive.

My machine is a 501 smartdrive and is not filling te bowl it is all going onto he floor instead

Hello there:
I will answer this in 2 seperate post's for you ok?
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these: Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it. The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. All the time 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.

There is an open hole in the bottom of the water

This is simply a pressure bleed-off.
You can fill it with playdough...sillyputty (gum) etc. It should have had a wax-like plug from the factory.

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?

this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.

Washing machine Whirlpool Lsn1000pq1

My washer is doing the same thing. I put it up on blocks so I could see where it was leaking from. On mine it was leaking from the pump which a big white piece of plastic in front of the motor. The pump has two hoses connected to it the **** the water out of the tub and pump it out the drain hose. Disconnect the two hose clamps, remove the hoses (use force). There are two spring clips on top and one bottom. I laid mine on it's side to remove them. There two slots one top, one bottom for you to use when prying the clips off. Place screwdriver under clip and between grove and push/pull until they come off. Carry pump to the sink, fill with water and see if it leaks from somewhere, should be obvious.
