    SOURCE: water leaking out bottom of drum. Drum does not fill up all the way and starts leaking close to halfway of filling

    Contact a professional so they can properly and accurately diagnose the unit for repairs. Sounds like you have a leak in the drain lines, or the water valve.

    Hi,

    The bearings are pre-loaded with grease but a smear of lithium grease can be used to ease fitting into the spider.The howling could be possibly because of the drum bearings.If your machine is making a rumbling noise as the drum turns then you most likely have an issue with the drum bearings. It's possible that normal use can allow water to get to the bearings. Remove the washing machine belt and manually turn the drum. If you hear a rumble as you turn the drum then problem is the ball bearings. Remove and replace them with new ones.Not knowing if your Simpson is a direct drive through a multi -speed gear box or another method, that makes it hard to give you a definitive answer. In my experience with earlier Simpson Washing machines the agitator should lift off the Splined shaft in the bowl by gripping the bottom of the agitator on the bottom edge using both hands at 180o between them, basically one opposite the other and trying to lift the agitator off vertically straight up until it clears the splined shaft and above the top lip of the bowl at which time you can remove it from the bowl. Be careful it doesn't give way suddenly as you maybe leaning over the bowl and with the force you sometimes have to exert it might come up and strike you hard around your facial region. If the agitator either has never been lifted off or a long period of time since it was then you may have to "wiggle" the agitator whilst attempting to lift the thing of the drive shaft. Once you have removed the agitator clean and re grease the splined drive shaft with suitable grease, not too much only a smear as too much will melt and leach into the bowl and hence you'll have greasy marks on the washing. Clean out the female splined section of the agitator and again a thin film of grease should be rubbed on the female splines. Replace the agitator on the shaft and make sure it's fully the length of the shaft as it will ride up and attempt to come of the drive shaft whilst the machine is operating if it's not seated correctly. If you think there are / is foreign objects beneath the agitator that seldom happens but sometimes it can with small articles. The problem of noisy agitators can be caused by worn bearings in the drive gear box which in turn allows the agitator to move sideways a bit and that then can grind on the bottom of the bowl under the agitator or even allow a small piece of cloth to get under the agitator etc. I doubt the unit would be driven by a belt directly connected to another pulley on the agitator but only a sub bowl inspection can prove that. I've never come across a Simpson that doesn't have a 2 speed direct drive gear box for the agitator and the spin dryer.

    Note:- if you aren't sure about the greasing i would recommend you to contact the company's technician.

    Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if it helped you.

    see this causes and fix it. God bless you

    Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

    Hose Connections
    Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the water inlet valve.

    Door Seal
    This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace the door seal.

    Water Inlet Valve
    If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace the water inlet valve.

    Drain Pump
    Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace the pump assembly.

    Outer Drum
    The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. Follow the video for the strut replacement and remove the top springs and the inner and outer drum will pull out the front.

    Why is water leaking from the bottom of the the washing machine?could the drum be to full?


    It could be a bad tub seal, hole in a hose, or even the drain pump.
    I would need your model number to be able to tell you how to check these parts.

    When the washer goes unto spin cycle, it makes a loud roaring noise and is leaking from the bottom


    It sounds like the tub seal is leaking, allowing water to leak out of the tub and damage the drum bearing. Unfortunately you need specialized tools to replace the seal and bearing, so you may have to get a maytag service agent in to look at it. If you're handy with a welder you may be able to make up a tool yourself, it basically consists of a flat hexagon with tabs on the inside to fit the drum nut, and some handles on it. You'll need to remove the front panel and top panel. Then remove the cap around the top of the tub. The agitator is held on by a small screw near the base of the agitator, loosening it will allow you to remove it. Now you can see the tub nut, this is reverse threaded, so it's loosened clockwise. Then you can lift out the drum. Next on the shaft is the top part of the mechanical seal. Remove the grub screw out the side. Now you'll need the same tool you used for the tub nut to undo the seal, rotating in the same direction. Remove the outer tub by undoing the 3 bolts that fix it to the stays, and disconnect the level tube and drain hose. From here you should have printed instructions that come with the new parts to replace the seal and bearing. Please feel free to get back to me if you have any further questions.

    Quite old admiral mega 22 plus topload washer. the machine did not agitate after filling up. I tried various points on the 3 cycle types and it did not spin either. My son tried moving the agitator and...


    Yes sounds like you have now disturbed the seal and will need a new one, remove the agitator and inner drum to get at the seals, to remove the agitator pull off the softner cap and remove bolt form down inside.
    To remove the inner drum, the top part of the washer needs to be hinged back to gain access, to do this insert a flat balde 4" from each side at the seam with the front panel to release the clips, lid will now hinge back to give access to the drums, on the outer dum there are clips all the way round to remove the top section of the outer drum release these. remove the bolts under agitator to remove the inner drum. you should have access to the seals but it has been a while.
    Reason for not agitating in first place is probably the water level switch at the rear of the drum with a small 8mm hose connecting it to the drum.

    HELLO, WSL100D0WW IS MAKING NOISE ON DRAIN/SPIN CYCLE.


    Or, you have coins in your pump casing. Look on the back of the washer, and unscrew the circular port in the bottom right corner. (Keep an 8x13 baking pan underneath, water will escape once you open the chamber). Remove and change/objects from the chamber and replace the port. You should be good to go. This is actually very common for this model washer.

    Washer leaking water from bottom


    You may want to check the seal at the bottom of the agitator, there is a o-ring that keeps the water in the drum from leaking through the agitator as it spins. This is a cheap seal and will wear over a period of time from exposure to bleach and detergent. You need to take the agitator apart and remove it from the drum and you should see this seal at the base of the agitator were it meets the drum.

    Replace the seal and reassemble, take the metal casing off the washer and fill the drum with a little water, wait, and see if the water is leaking under the drum. If no leak, try to reassemble and run the washer. If is still leaks then check http://www.applianceaid.com/genew.html
