Is this a FRONT LOADER? Or, is this a TOP LOADER?

If this is a FRONT LOADER, the following link explains what you have to do to determine the source of a leak:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader


In most cases on a FRONT LOADER, leaks are caused by the rubber door bellow developing small rips or tears due to age and wear. If the bellow is leaking, it must be replaced. The following lik explains the steps necessary to do so:

If you have a leak on a TOP LOADER, the most common cause is a worn drain pump, leaking drain hoses or the hose to the air dome has come loose. You will need to remove the exterior case of the washer to be sure. DO NOT lay the washer on its back. The gearcase contains oil and it may leak through the breather hole.

The following link explains how to inspect a TOP LOADER for leaks:

If the drain pump is leaking, it is not serviceable and must be replaced, the following link explains how to replace one:

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle


the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.


hope this helps

Kenmore 110-91564100 Top Load Washer Problem


Sounds like my 91 Geo Merto LOL! Anywho when it washes the pump spins one way and water is basically thrown back into the tub, then when on spin it spins in the opposite direction and if there is a hose leak past the pump or the pump itself leaks it will come out of the drain system. As for the thump, check under the unit for anything that shouldnt be under there getting caught up in the mechanics. Let us know :-)
