check that the machine ramps up to spin speed reasonably and distributes the clothes- ie doesn't spring straight up to spin speed. if this is ok then the fault may well be the shock absorbers located at the bottom of the machine and going from base to tub. check also that the counterweights are intact

SOURCE: Whirlpool LXR94 leaks in front left

I have a different model Whirpool (GSX9885JQ0), but a similar issue. I took the cover off and saw the bleach inlet hose was broken in two places. After replacing that, still leaked!! I wiped everything dry, and ran it again, and traced the leak. The water pump has a small hole worn into the side of it. The pump is located in the btoom front, just under the tub. The hole was on the left side, between the two hoses. I just looked up the schematic for your machine on Partselect.com, and it looks like you have the same exact pump...

The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Front Loading Door leaking water

The most common cause for a front loading washer to leak from the front door is a torn or detached gasket where that gasket attached to the machine.
Open the door and begin to pull the gasket away from the opening. Look for any problems. If you find a place where the gasket is not firmly secured to the opening, you can list that area up and glue (even with super glue) the gasket back down to the metal opening.
If you find gasket damage, it will need to be replaced.

My Cabrio washer is leaking (badly) from the bottom of the machine. Leaked so much water that the water went into the basement. I just had the computer repaired, but now this . . .


Morning, just from your description, it sounds like several things. A leaking pump, a broken hose, a transmission leak. You probably are going to have to call a serviceman on this one.

Loud clicking while agitating


You may have debris stuck in the pump.
This can cause the clicking sound and also bind the pump causing a circuit overload.
