Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a 14 year old Whirlpool washer. Yesterday my wife was doing a load. She heard the machine had stopped so she went down to the basement to throw the clothes into the dryer. She smelled a strange odor, and the tub had not drained. I figure the pump must be gone. Should I have it fixed or should I just buy a new washing machine?

Most washing machine pumps are mechanical and would leak if bad. I don't think the smell is from the pump... more likely the motor.
Probably best to put the repair money towards a new washer unless you do the work yourself.

2. checckif the belts have failed and brought it off the pulley.
3. check if the main spindle , pulley has come off from the main shaft.
4.check if theere is any foreign material struck in between the tub and outer cover. Checking with manually must confirm.

Water is leaking from left rear side of Washer


that is the location of the vent and valves. suspect rubber hose from valve to dispenser is busted. remove top cover to see (2 or 3 torx screws on back) the older units had a bend in the hose that breaks.

Washing machine woes


Buy a new machine. You have used it well. After Two repairs I suggest replacements

Since you are not paying for water I would suggest a top loader. I have been Happy with Kenmore (Whirlpool in Kenmore skin) or look at a Speed Queen Top loader.

Dont over load your new machine, learn what it can and cant handle.

Best of Luck T

Water leaks out the bottom of door. metal ring with spring came off. put it back on and has leaked since


I have the same problem. I went to get laundry out of the machine and there is plastic piece with coded wires attached and metal tension that appears to go around the drum hanging loose. Probably have water but the machine is in the basement not too far from the drain. Mine is a duet 9100L about 4 years old
