If it only leaks when filled to a high level, the rubber washer behing the overflow plate is misaligned or missing. this plate is on the tub wall above the drain, and hld in in by 1 or 2 screws.

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks 3yrs old


Overflow? Seal around drain may be good enough for shower, but leaks with a little more pressure from the filled tub. Filled tub may flex the tub and drain components. What about the overflow. I bet some water is going over, but it isn't used for showers. Double check. Paper towels tied in stratigic locations always help me find a leak. Leak makes the towel soak up water nearby. It's most wet at the point of leak.

The outside male thread drain should have a cap to hold the water; this is the drain for draining the unit. Filling the unit is as you described, simply lift the lid and add water into the tub. It should not be leaking water from under the unit ... that could be a problem. Good luck!

Ge wahing machine is leaking only when it drains or spins. never when it just fill and agitates


A washer that leaks only during the spin and drain cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make.

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer was leaking underneath while running, I removed the back panel and dropped the drain hose to the floor and extended it out the door to the yard and while filling the tub...


The drain hose must be at least level with the top of the actual tub in the washer. The water pump is only bad if it is leaking. If it is leaking from the front you either have a cracked outer tub, but it sounds like your water pump, easy to change out just get the model # and order it through an appliance parts distributor. The cost is about 40 to 50 bucks. good luck!

Washer drains then spins then fills again and drains but no spin


Try this, unplug washer for two minutes, plug back in, open and close lid seven times slowly, this will reset the computer and the electronic motor. Also on water level switch, make sure hose from switch to tub is not plugged, blow it out, gets clogged with soap.

Daby dwm99w drains and fills water at the same time.


The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the highest level of water in the tub. Otherwise, it just siphons through.

When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.


The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks. this unit has been recently installed within the last week


You say that it doesn't leak during showers. The next step is to plug the drain 100% so no water will drain thru the drain assembly. Fill the unit up to just below the overflow drain and leave overnight to see if it could be leaking from the outside of the drain plug assembly or leaking from the jets/drain from the whirlpool feature. If was just recently installed was it professionally installed. Should be covered by warranty.Try this then if its not determined what the cause we will go to the next level of investigating what it could be.in it peak all around to see where the water is comming from. Use a flashlite so your not kneeling in mosture with a electrical light in your hand!!! Good Luck!

Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.
