How do you tell if the suspension springs are bad

with washing machines you have suspension springs at the top of the drum and shock absorbers on the bottom, the easiest way to check shocks is to see if they have leaked any fluid and if they offer any resistance, if they are leaking and offer no resistance to compression then they will need replacing

F&P washing machine leaking from the bottom of the tub. I have checked the pump and inlets they are all good. It is an Intuitiuve Eco model about 5 years old. The leak seems to be coming the centre...

The seal has gone, you need to replace the seal and bearings and also the shaft as the seal wears into the shaft.. The leak would have started out as brown in colour, then as the grease is washed out of the bearings, the fluid will run clear, then the bearings will start to make a noise when the machine is doing the spin cycle.

Not an easy job to do, hardest part is fitting the seal properly without tearing the lip on the shaft where it drives the agitator. There is a cover available to do so, but only at autherised repair shops.

My maytag washer was makeing noise and we moveved it out and found a black plastic cap that was in two and fluid leak.

The plastic cap goes underneath the washer on the end of the transmission shaft below the belt pulley.
You may have a transmission oil leak causing the noise.
This machine is worth repairing.
It is a better machine than any brand made today.

any automobile automatic trans fluid would do fine but i am not sure how you are going to replace it.the fluid you lost when it was turned on it's side came out the vent hole on the top.unless you lost a huge amount of fluid,i would not bother.i have seen 20yr old whirlpool's(roper manufacturer)that have lost 2/3rd's of their fluid due to a bad seal run with no trans troubles at all.if you only lost a pint or less,the mach will be fine.good luck
