    Good Lord. I can't believe how easy that was..... $ 45 for the new pump from Sears, and approx 5 mins to install using the directions supplied. No more leak!

    Same problem water leaking underneath near front

  • facehead Aug 17, 2008

    I lifted the machine and the leaking appears to be coming from a white plastic container piece. There are two hoses leading into the container, but I don't know what it is called exactly. Can you please let me know if it is replaceable or should we call someone in to fix it?

Whirlpool ultimate care heavy duty leaks underneath, not agitate or spin. only humms and fills up

Again!! Any washer that does not drain has a bad Drain Pump. Very Common. I see this in 40-50% of the problems. Replace the drain pump and your washer will be very happy

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer were is the drain filter


With Whirlpool top loader models the pump is located at the bottom of the appliance. The pump is accessed from underneath the appliance. Some model may have an access panel at the back. I think that with the Ultimate Care models the pump must be accessed from underneath. Here a repair video.
Here parts and diagrams.

Whirlpool ultimate care II washer is leaking water from underneath. any ideas?

Take the front or rear panel off so you can watch the parts during the fill, wash, and spin cycle looking at the hoses and pump to determine where the water is coming from.

Ultimate care supreme leaks underneath

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

Whirlpool ultimate care II washer leaks

Sounds like the pump is leaking.

Access to inside washer:

This one you remove the whole outside case and not the back.

Remove two screws on each side of the back control panel, you may have to remove the plastic trim on each end of the panel. The control panel flips back so you can remove two brass clips, unplug the wireing in the back center. The whole outside case can be removed.

The pump is in front and held on by two clips.
