If the water is gushing from the washer, check the small plastic air dome hose on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. Sometimes the hose can come loose and come off. This will cause the water to begin pouring out of the bottom of the the washer when it begins to fill. The following link has some other things you may consider as well:

The link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak.


Another common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a 2013 keystone cougar 327res and the belly pan is full of water...where should i look for my leak?


This is not just for your camper, but general troubleshooting.
Drain the water from the belly pan. Hook up water supply to shore water source. With water source turned on, allow some time, 1-4 hours, and check if water has returned to belly pan. If water is present then the problem is with the fresh water system. If no water, either it is a small/slow leak or the problem is not with the fresh water system. Next test the grey water tank by pouring some red food color into the shower or sink drain. Flush it into tank with water. Again, wait for some time, maybe over night, and then check for red water in the belly pan. It may take longer for the leak to appear as the grey water tank does not have pressure. If no water, check the black water tank with green food coloring and same technique. If there is colored water, red or green, in the belly pan, then the leak is with associated with the grey or black water tanks. If no water is present after these tests, then the leak may be very small and it may take days or weeks to have water re-appear. In any event, clear water is fresh water system, red water is grey water system, and green water is black water system. With any of them, checking the tanks themselves and all pipes and connectors to/from should find the leak source. The last possibility is that water is entering the belly pan from a roof or vent leak. Check to see if water returns to belly pan after a good rain. If so, the water may be clear or slightly dirty. If it is a roof leak, I have found the best repair is to use Peel and Seal roll roofing It is light weight laminated aluminum and self sticking. Cutting and applying narrow strips 4-6" wide, will seal any caulked area. It costs $95 (3' x 33') at Lowes. A 30" motor home can be completely covered with three (3) rolls, in half a day. I have re-topped 5 motor homes (one 7 years ago) and no more leaks on any of them. The product was developed to seal the roofing joints of mobile homes. Topping should last 15+ years.

Repair a cold water leak at the bottom of my water heater


Hi -

If your water heater is working (ie: making hot water) then most likely your heater isn't leaking. Rather, the leak is coming from the cold water supply and running down the tank where you see it at the bottom of the tank. A working tank that is leaking would produce a leak of hot water - not cold. You should carefully check the cold water piping for a leak, drip or stream of water and make the required repairs.

You posted question under propane gas heater.
Propane is heavier and air, and this type gas water heater should not be installed in basement (below grade) since gas leak can fill basement with explosive gas.
Water leak does not cause gas leak, so water leak is separate problem.
Recommended for propane safety: install gas detector close to floor near gas water heater
Regular Natural Gas heater, install gas detector higher on wall since NG is lighter than air and will rise.
