The pump is covered for only 1 year. It is inexpensive and easy to replace. Here's how....
To access it REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways:
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch.

With console lifted:
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

Remove the hose clamps and the two spring clips that mount the pump to the motor.

And there you have it!

14 year old Whirlpool Estate washer. leaks small


Most likely you have a leaking water pump. This is not too hard to change if you are somewhat mechanically inclined it is around a 5 on a scale of 10. Your model # should be on the back of machine towards the top. If you want to change it yourself let me know and I will give you directions. Let me know if I can do anything else to help.

Went back to Lowes to talk to a sales personal. He informed me that there are two screws at the front of the drawer (one per side) After removing these screws (you will need to put them back after) the drawer will be removable from the pedestal base.

As the washer fills, the water stream cycles, slow - fast.


YOU CAN GO TO LOWES IN THE PLUMBING SECTION AND BUY A PRESSURE RELEASE FOR THAT PROBLEM. JUST ASK THE LOWES PLUMBING GUY

How do you remove the timer on a Whirlpool washer


Hello,
You have to unscrew the knob and remove the screws that are under it, some have just a center nut with a locating tab that goes into a hole to hold it straight.

Intermittent water on floor


Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

Intermittent water observed under machine


Difficult if not seen. Most common water on the floor senario is a drain pump leaking:or a perrished pipe from friction.or sometimes, water backs up from the house drainage system due to a restriction.

Base on the information you provided--I'am confident that your washer is in need of some adjustments. If you are still under the warranty period, I recommend you contact the manufacturer of your washer and request that they send a warranty service provider to fix your washer for you.

When you call the manufacturer have your washer model number, serial number, and the warranty information handy.

Washer warranty


Red Flag !! 1 year now instead of 5 year Warranty .
I'd stay far clear from purchasing any model washer from Frigidaire!
Any one think differently?
