Re: leaking

The head where timer is will lift up there might be 2 screws on each side.unplug lid switch, remove brackets on each side case will pull out toward you. You need to bypass lid switch with jumper wire to get unit to run without case.

You have a leak
it is collecting in a tray under ther washer
the tray has a float switch in it
when the tray fills up the float switch activates telling the computer it has a leak ERROR CODE F17
by tipping the washer backward you drain the water in the tray and reset the switch
this will only be a short term fix because you still have a leak somewhere

Stackable washer (bottom), top load leaking water??

Easy fix most likely the water pump is leaking or the hose from tub to pomp. Remove the front cover
A couple of screws at the base come out and you can remove the front.
Run is a while with the cover off to see where the leak originates but
keep the pets and children away from the machine while the cover is off.
Tip it back to remove the belts.

Could it be possible that water would be leaking from the bottom?

There are several ways the water could be leaking, depending how old the washer is it could be leaking from the large rubber seals that are located in the front of the washer if it is front load or under if a top load. The best way to figure out where the leak is coming from is to get a visual from the inside. Unfortunately you have to remove one or two covers to get a good look. Usually you will see a stain residue from where the water could be leaking from.

I have a 1960s whirlpool washer that is leaking out of the bleach line. I was trying to figure out how to pull the drum out of the barrel.

At this point in time it might be less distructive to go shopping for a new machine. To remove the inner basket you will have to remove the tub cover which will probably not seal after removal due to errosion of the tub. With the tub cover removed, remove the agitator which will uncover the next great feat, the hub nut which requires a special wrench to remove. If you can remove the hub nut after 40 years of corrosive detergent water you may be able to remove the inner basket if it isn't ceased on the drive block.

If you suspect the leak is from the main drum seal.
To remove the agitator, remove the softener cap by pulling, look inside the agitator, undo the bolt (4) with long socket extension and then lift out.
5e90500.jpg Not sure if you can see the seal ("O" ring at this point, you may need to remove the inner drum.
Isolate the supply.
Lift the top cover by inserting a flat blade approx 4" in at each side at the front to release the two top clips, top cover will lift and hinge backwards out of the way.
To remove the top ring (13) from the drum, unclip each clip around the top untill released, then remove.
to remove the inner drum (10) , unbolt (7) from the inside, lift out inner drum.
Seal (1) should be visible.

Water leak

If the main seal is leaking there will typically be a splash line around the inside of your washer cabinet. There is a special wrench available for removing the large nut that holds the inner basket in. This nut is aluminum and can be removed with a chissel if it is stuck. remove the inner basket and you will see cone shaped "NUT" that is covered in cork. There is a torx screw on the side of the cone shaped piece. once the screw is removed then the cone shaped nut can be removed using the special wrench and brute force.
