    LOOKS LIKE PARTS WILL BE AROUND $100. IS IT WORTH IT ON AN 8 YEAR OLD MACHINE THAT HAS BEEN USED A BUNCH? WHAT ABOUT THE TRANSMISSION? DID I DAMAGE IT WITH THAT MUCH WATER GOING THROUGH IT?

  • trainham May 03, 2010

    YES I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS.

  • trainham May 03, 2010

    IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL COST ABOUT $100 FOR PARTS FOR THIS. MY QUESTION IS THE TRANSMISSION HURT BECAUSE OF ALL THE WATER THAT HAS GONE THROUGH IT? WILL IT GIVE ME TROUBLE LATER ON? SHOULD I PUT THE $100 TOWARDS A NEW WASHER?

  • trainham May 03, 2010

Hi,

Below is a breakdown of your washer tub, I will describe here what parts to replace using the numbers on the diagram. The other numbers will be the part numbers you need to obtain from the parts house.

Part 24 is the mounting stem and seal kit part number 6-2095720.
Part 20 is the tub bearing that was most likely damaged with the leaking, you will need to get kit 21 which includes part 20. The kit part number is 6-2040130

Those should be all you need.

    Hi,

    I would put the money toward a new washer, even with the new parts the water can cause hidden damage. The motor is now 9 years old, the timer etc. The average life of this washer is 10 years so you are on borrowed time as it is.

    The brand that we work on the least and do a great job are the Whirlpool.

    If you do more than 5 loads a week then I would recommend investing in the front loading machines, they do an awesome job. But they are quite expensive.

    The top loading machine has been a great workhorse for them and has very few troubles. I am not familiar with the model numbers but any top load whirlpool builds, just look for the settings and features you would use. For example if you do not wash dedicates, you do not need a washer with that option.

    I hope that helps

Whirlpool LSR8010PQ0 motor hums and leaks water


Somethnig is wrong with your transmission. Since it is leaking, the seals are broken or damaged. The water leaked in your transmission. The problem with Whirlpool washing machines, the motor is directly coupled with the transmission. There is a high probability that the leaking water corroded the transmission, thereby freezing it. Your best bet is to have the transmission and the water leak fixed. Do not run the washing machine till you have this fixed, otherwise, you face the chance of losing your motor.

Which Seal?

Have you gotten under & checked the driveaxle seals?

The big leak will be the torque converter pump seal
That requires removing the transxale

Sort of old to do that & not rebuild the trans while your at it

Is it good to flush a transmission after 220,000 miles?


NO it's not good, just give the transmission a normal transmission fluid and filter change. Flushing the transmission fluid may loosen up any thing that is keeping the O rings and seals from leaking and flushing out the transmission may cause it the fail much sooner then expected. My transmission on my 96 jimmy has over 365,000 miles and still going strong. You may want to replace the boost valve to ensure your getting the proper transmission line pressure, as the transmission get's older, the boost valve weakens causing the line pressure to drop. As the line pressure drops, the transmission starts to slip wearing out your clutch packs. I replace mine every service and the boost valve is not that expensive and can be replaced when the transmission pan is dropped. Good luck and hope this helps answer your question.

How do I fix a transmission leak?


Depends on where it's leaking from and how long your planning on keeping the car? The touque converter to the pump seal leak is a big job and if it's leaking there there is likly other trans problems lurking for the person that starts into this repair and may cause the whole trans to have to be rebuilt just to get it working again. The pan gasket seldom leakes unless it's been off for service and the tech doing the work skipped a few steps putting it back. The axel seals aren't too bad to do but the axel is partway out or something or reinstalled by a less than careful mechanic. The cooling lines to the reditor are a common leak install new hoses that are for transmission fluild and even get the dealer part as they fit good and don't leak and are easier to instal than straight hose. Changinging the fluild at the service intervals and not overdriving the car these trans seldom leak as almost all the problems I've ever fournd are caused by bad mechanic work and not wear and tear except the cooling hoses.

Leaking taps


Check first if leaking from hoses or under the machine.
Undo your taps, check that the hoses rubber seals haven't worn out. Replace rubber seals, most hardware plumbing sections have them. Also if the actual tap is leaking at the wall, you will have to change the tappets. You will need to close your main water at the timer, then undo the actual knobs, depending on the tap. Once opened take out tappets and replace with copper ones rather than plastic. Then put all back together and switch water on and check if leaking. In case it is the washing machine, try to replace hose or the connector on the back of machine. Make sure also all rubber seals are replaced with new ones. If under machine you will need a plumber. See how you go!
