Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
How do I fix the problem of leaking water and a greasy oil from under my washing machine?
Hello, the good news is the water is coming from the pump and is easily replaced, the bad news is if you are seeing a yellow oily substance your transmission has a leak and will go bad at some stage soon. The question here you need to ask yourself is do you want to spend $35 on a new pump when your going to need to buy a new washer? If so pull the machine out and puch it back so it leans against the wall umder it's own weight. wedge some thing underneath the washer so you can access the bottom without the washer falling on you. you will see the pump attached to the motor which is attached to the transmission. remove the 2 clips and 2 pipes from the pump, remove the pump and replace it, reassemble in reverse order, you should be able to see where the leak came from the pump at the point where the motor shaft connected to the pump. Also while you are under there look at the base of the transmission, you should see some oily residue where the transmission fluid is leaking. Hope this helps! if you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike
