We have a Whirlpool Duet Sport HT front loading washing machine. The unit has leaked large pools of water a few times without explanation. We can't find the source of the leak or a way to repeat...

Hello, First thing to do is remove the bottom panel on the machine. Do not do this if your machine is under warranty. After removeing the bottom panel you would then check the pump filter. You would unscrew the filter and check if there are any blockages in the pump itself. If you found no blockages then you would disconnect the drain lines that go to and from the pump and assure there are no blockages there as well. I have also seen on a duet where one of the struts will rip out of the outter tub and this causes a leak as well. You could also have a leak from the dispenser area as well if you had a blockage of soap in one of the lines of the dispenser. The best way to find out where your leak is coming from is leave off the bottom panel and run the machine and while its running watch if you see any leaks. This also means watching your washer machine run through the whole cycle which is not a very fun task but has to be done in order to find where the leak is coming from. You could also have some sediment in the pressure switch hose that attaches to the tub which would cause an excess amount of water to go into the tub which when the tub agitated it would throw the excess water over the sides of the inner drum. If you have any further questions message me back. Thanks Rick
this is the schematic to your machine click this link
I await your reply Thanks again Rick

Washer leaks water from underneath, but not from any hoses on the pump.

is it leaking from the tub? remove the top cabinet and inspect to see if it is if it is leaking from the bottom of the tub most likely you will need a new bearing and seal and this is the job btw that techs love to get because they charge 4-600 to do the job probably cost you abou 60 dollars and take your about 5 hrs to change it but its alot better then paying the 4-600 on the other hand if the tub is cracked it wouldnt be worth replacing it the cabrio is one of the worst model ever made along with its sister the calypso and the cousin the kenmore oasis if you have any further questions message me back here is a complete schematic of how your machine comes apart Thanks again Rick &blt=06

Leaks when filling with water after 1/3 full. Seems to come from under plastic tub near center of tub. The inner ''O'' ring seal was found to be missing. Could that be the cause? Main outer tub seal LOOKS...

You did not mention the age or model of your machine. However, on the older models there is a star boot in the bottom of the tub that can wear a pin hole in itself ofer several years of use. If you have the unit torn down to just the tub then replace all the seals. Just make sure you clean the mating surfaces well with an old slightly worn scotch brite pad. If you provider your model number I can provide you with an overnight source for the parts and the part numbers you need to obtain.

My bathtub drain leaks. Is there a product to

No, not without sealing, I mean clogging, the drain. Do you know exactly where the leak is coming from? I would suspect that the water is getting around the drain, instead of down the drain. The visible part of the drain should unscrew from the part that is underneath. That bottom part is likely permanently sealed to your drain plumbing.
You may be able to easily fix your leak by:
#1 Unscrewing the visible drain top.
#2 Replacing the washer under that top. This will seal your tub to your drain. All water will then be forced to flow down the drain properly.
#3 Screw the top of your drain back into place WITHOUT folding or wrinkling the new washer.
Good luck

Water leaks from the bottom when it is draining. doesn't seem to be leaking from the hose, rather it seems to be coming from the bottom.

Check the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number and a list of sub-components will come up.

Check the listings and diagram for the tub and locate any gaskets at the bottom of the tub that could be leaking.

Another document that you can look at is a Whirlpool parts list (for commercial top load washers but consumer models are basically the same) and look at the basket and tub assembly.

We have Builders #6032 and it has small hairline cracks in tub bottom. Its starting to leak into our basement. What do we do to fix it?

alot of times if you call the tub builder they have service guys who will come and fix your tub. most tubs have a 3-8 year warrenty against defects so you could get the fix for free. if not you can always try and get fiberglass resin and mix a batch up and seal the cracks yourself

Water leak

Mine also started leaking. Element also too hot. Mine has a 20 year warrenty on the tub (which I was NOT aware of) Repairman came today and the whole tub unit and element will be fixed for free! Look in your whirlpool instruction book to see if yours is warrentied. BTW, my dishwasher is only three years old.
