Re: leaking water from underneath.

Sounds like several problems. sounds like your boot stem/ seal is leaking and possibly the tub bearing is rusted. I generally replace both at the same time as long as the machine is apart anyway. As for the squealing and tub slamming to a stop, that is your brake package and bearing have dried and/or rusted and need to be replaced

MY front load washer is leaking from under the washer. I have tried doing the monthly cleaning as it states in manual but this has done nothing.

There are several possibilities--the rubber seal between the cabinet doorway and the outer drum may be pulling loose or is punctured in some way. If the cabinet has a removable lower panel on the front, take it off and inspect the pump, the water hose from the drum to the pump, and the drain hose that runs from the pump out the back to the house drain for any possible leaks. If the leak occurs when the tub is filling with water, the hose that runs from the water inlet solenoids to the tub may be split or pulling loose. Open the cabinet top to check this. Hope this helps!

Washing machine won't drain, pump stuck

If your washing machine won't drain and, the pump appears to be stuck:
Go to an autoparts store and, buy a radiator locking hose pinch off plier. Then: unplug the washer (remove all power) bail out all the water with a cup or, bowl; remove the washer cabinet or, tilt back the washer against a wall so that you can access the pump from underneath the front; pinch off the tub to pump hose; lock the plier, place a towel under the pump; remove all screws on the pump cover; remove the blockage from the pump and, reattach the pump cover. remove the pliers and, test the washer. (if you can acces the pump from the front (like a front load washer) you do not need to bail out the water as, the pliers will hold the water in the tub, so that only a small amount of water will come out when you open the pump.)

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer was leaking underneath while running, I removed the back panel and dropped the drain hose to the floor and extended it out the door to the yard and while filling the tub...

The drain hose must be at least level with the top of the actual tub in the washer. The water pump is only bad if it is leaking. If it is leaking from the front you either have a cracked outer tub, but it sounds like your water pump, easy to change out just get the model # and order it through an appliance parts distributor. The cost is about 40 to 50 bucks. good luck!

Water has started pouring out from under my washer

Hello, you've indicated this problem only arrises during the rinse cycle, is that correct ? The leak doesn't occur during the wash cycle initial fill level ? I want to distinguish the difference because there has been a repair tip issued by whirlpool for the duet and sport washer's. This may be applicable to your machine. If it is indeed only during the rinse, the problem is within the door assembly. Specifically the glass and it's "seat" to the frame. Let me know, I'll watch for your reply. macmarkus :)

Drips from center of front cover when filling at 3-4 inches

after carefully reading this, the leak is at the machines water valves, or from them to hose to tub.

Water leaking

it could be the boot seal, (rubber piece that joins the tub to the front panel). the boot can get a hole in it or it can pull away from the tub if the clamp loosens. if it is the front of the outer tub that is cracked the manufacture did warranty the tub for ten years prior to 2006. check your owners manual as that is what the company has to honor. they only cover the part not labor, and in the usa only. i hope this helps.

Water pours out from washer underneath

The most common leak for those washers is from the drain pump a really easy and inexpensive repair. It is located underneath toward the front. To diagnose turn on water to tub fill 1/4 the way, pull out machine about 2 feet, tilt backward,you can use a mirror, I just poke my head under. is should be clearly evident where the leak is. The tools to change the pump it requires a screwdriver and pliers. There are two clips and to hose clamps,remove and replace in reverse order.

GE WJSR 1070A Leaking

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

If you have any questions, let me know
