Hi,
If water is leaking out of the motor then the disposal unit is no good... it is fixable, but will cost more to fix then to replace it...

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.

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.


That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit.

Im leaking radiator fluid pretty badly and it leaks when i drive and but leaks all over the ground when it sits and its not the hoses and i just resealed the thermostate housing and now its leaking agian i...


I would look at the water pump. It either that or your radiator draped out. Park it after it hot and put a box under the belt area between belt and motor and under the radiator. That should help narrow it down a bit. Hope this helps

Dishwasher began leaking underneath when turned on. Humming as if trying to start, but nothing further exept water on floor


I don't know how old this dishwasher is but the symptom your describing sounds like the ceramic water seal on the bottom of the impeller assy but above the motor has failed. When the seal fails it allows water to run though the motor and then the bearings in the motor fail. Once water starts running though a dishwasher motor they are pretty much shot. The reason for this is that the leak starts out slow and it leaks for a long period before you ever see the water under the dishwasher. So by the time you see the leak water has been going through the pump / motor assy for weeks or months. By that time the service technicians only option is to replace the motor pump assy.
