Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
Leaks on this model washer can commonly be determined by the following:
1. If the leak is coming from the from underneath the front center of the washer, it's usually caused by a leaking water pump. If the pump leaks, it is not serviceable and must be replaced. The following link explains how:
2. If the leak is coming from the central area under the wash tub, the tub seal may be leaking. You should see tell-tale signs of water tracks on the gearcase (transmission) if this is the case. Also inspect the wash tub for cracks. Since the outer tub is usually made of plastic, it can crack and develop leaks. This repair involves removing the tub. It's not difficult, but can be extensive. We'll cross that bridge if the time comes - post back and let me know and I can give you advice on how to repair and the parts you may need.
3. If the leak is coming from the right-hand side of the wash tub, consider the air dome. This is a small dome located on the lower side of the wash tub with a small air hose attached. This is how the pressure switch is able to determine the pressure change as the tub fills and turn the water off when full. This air hose can come loose, causing water to pour out while filling (THIS IS NOT A SMALL LEAK). If the air dome is till intact with no cracks the air hose can simply be reattached. If the air dome is damaged, the tub will require replacement.
4. If the leak is coming from the rear of the washer, you will need to check your water inlet valve and associated dispenser hoses. The following link explains how to access the valve and replace (if required):
Of course, your drain hoses are always suspect. You mentioned those hoses weren't leaking. However, if you have not removed the washer case and inspected them closely, you may want to double check them.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you locate your problem.
