Question about Washing Machines
The part you are referring to is the drain pump. The pump on these top loaders are mechanical (no electrical connections) and have only one moving part (the impeller). If the pump begins to leak, it must be replaced as they are not serviceable. Commonly, the external case develops small cracks and will begin to leak. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:
A replacement pump can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable, offer great service and have competitive pricing. The first three sites I have listed also include exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.
The model number is usually printed on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the washer lid. The number should have a prefix of "110", which identifies the manufacturer as Whirlpool. If the number cannot be read, it is often stamped somewhere on the back panel of the washer, or on the back of the operator console.
If you have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
NOTE: If you cannot locate a model number, the part numbers are often printed on the component. You can remove the pump from the washer and see if the number is stamped on the casing somewhere. You can also take the damaged part to any appliance parts retailer to see if they can match the part for you. The drain pump is common item that some retailers will carry as part of their in-store inventory.
