My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II has water leaking out the bottom near the front. I tilted it back and found that it was not a hose, but a round, white plastic piece in front of the motor.

Your drain pump is leaking. They are not serviceable and cannot be repaired. The following link explains how to replace the pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

If you need an illustration of your washer and components, searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, or pcappliancerepair.com usually have some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can refer to.

Prices can vary between these sites so shop around for the best deal. NOTE: Use the part number from the Sears site and use it to "Search by Part Number" on the other sites. It makes it easier to find as some sites may not have your model number listed, but will still carry the part.

Read through everything thoroughly before beginning any repairs. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

NOTE: You can also order a repair manual for about $20 (part number 1170635) at repairclinic.com if you need more instruction.

Water is coming out the bottom and not in to the loader


your fill hose is separated at the solenoid or you have a broken hose. Have someone look under the unit and see where the water is coming from. If there isn't a floor panel on the unit, pull it away from the wall and tilt it back so you can see the action underneath the unit. Start the cycle and see where the water is coming from. Stop the cycle and fix the leak.

Waher leaks water on floor


Where is it leaking from? Back or bottom. Hose might not be connected right on back if it's from the bottom, check hose that connects from bottom of basin to pump. May have come off and needs to be put back on and tightened back up.

Leaking from the bottom back


Hi, If not a hose leak, check for leakage around the water pump. On our top-load Kenmore, the leak showed up at the front right of the machine. Water was leaking where the pump slides onto the motor shaft. Replacement of pump consists of: (1) unplug power cord and then remove 2 screws at corners of the dial/control panel to tilt it back, (2) unplug wiring harness, (3) remove two spring clips holding white metal console to the frame then tilt console forward and remove, (4)pump was in front of machine with two black hoses attached via hose clamps - remove the spring clips at top & bottom of pump and remove the two hose clamps, (5) slide new pump onto shaft and reassemble in reverse order.

Take care

My Whirlpool ultimate care is leaking under,I did check the hoses and they are okey. What could be the problem?.


Can you describe where the leak may becoming from? For example, near the front, from under the washer, or near the back.

If you notice a pool of water coming from under the washer near the FRONT, this is commonly caused by a leaking water pump. Since these pumps are sealed units and are considered non-serviceable, it must be replaced. They cannot be resealed or "fixed".

If the leak appears to be leaking from under the washer near the CENTER of the tub, either the tub seal is leaking or the air dome hose may have come loose. If the tub seal is leaking, it also must be replaced. If the air dome hose comes loose, however, the washer will never fill up all the way and will continuously run. This will cause a flood rather than a drip.

If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, this can be caused by cracked fill hoses, loose fill hose connections, a leaking drain hose, or a fill valve hose leaking.

Since you said you checked your hoses, I suspect a water pump, or something loose. Can you please confirm your symptoms and let me know?
