Water leak at bottom of Whirlpool Estate washer. Removed the cabinet. No leaks from the water pump, hoses or inlet valve. The tub leans a little toward the front of the machine. When filling/rinsin

It is common on Whirlpool models for the water to splash out the top when filling especially when sheets or nylon cloth is loaded in the washer. Air fills the cloth and balloons the garment up this caused water to bounce off the garment and splash out the back. This is the most common reason for those mysterious leaks. Lowering the water pressure coming into the washer can help prevent this.

Often, the machine (Maytag, MAV1000) doesn't spin at the end of a cycle. The belt must be slipping because there is a lot of black "belt dust" underneath the machine. We recently had a...

i have a feeling that probably your tub bearing may be jammed. You can lift the machine at a 45 degree angle take the belt off and try turning the transmission pulley either way, one way will turn free for wash mode and other way will be more difficult but you should be able to turn the pulley so you could see if if your tub turns if not well you just found your problem. You will not be able to repair it b because you will need special tools.
Other probability would be a garment stuck between the two tubs accessable by removing front panel and lifting the top.
lift top by inserting flat blade tool at each end in between top and front push clips and lift top
Front removal twoo screws 5/16 nut driver on each end inner portion of the front panel.
Unclip tub cover and remove and you will be able to see between the two tubs.

Hope this helps.

Code F20, what is it and what do i do?????

The "F20" means no water is detected entering the tub or the pressure switch trip was not detected.

There is a good possibility the reason why is because some or all the water is coming out the dispenser. The reason why it's coming out of the dispenser is most likely due to a small garment was shoved up into the tube that delivers the water into the tub. This can happen if the washer is overloaded or if the garment is too small. Small garments should be placed in a garment bag before washing.

Remove the dispenser drawer and confirm there is no block there and then open the door and look at the rubber boot at about the 10 or 11 o'clock position and you should see where the water enters the tub. You will likely find a small garment up inside the tube restricting the fill water from entering the tub and causing the F20.

Washer leaks water when filling

Do you know where the water is coming from ? Is it coming out the front of the dispenser/detergent drawer ? If it is, likely the cause a garment stuck in the bellows that goes from the dispenser to the tub.

If this is where it is leaking, it's pretty easy to fix.

**FIRST; unplug the washer from the wall outlet before going any further**

you'll need to remove the top from the washer. there's a couple of screws at the back holding the top down. locate these screws and remove them. then slide the top towards the back about an inch or two and you should be able to lift it off.

now, pull the drawer for the detergent/bleach/softener all the way out. be careful not to yank it out without pushing down the tab at the back to prevent it from pulling all the way out under normal operation, you don't want to have to replace that on top of already existing problems. once that is removed, you should see screw holes on the console behind where the drawer face was. remove those. they should be #15 or #20 torx head. you will also have to remove a couple at the top of the dispenser to allow you to slide the complete assembly away from the opening. once all those screws are removed, slide it back just enough to lift it up a little to expose the bellows I spoke of earlier, it goes from the bottom of the dispenser to the front of the tub. Remove the clamp fastening it to the dispenser, look in there for a sock, pantiehose/nylons, or some other item.

This is actually quite common in my experience. if it has happened, don't feel too bad, it's a minor problem in the scheme of things really.

I will say though, this is typically a type of garment that should be in a "mesh laundry bag". either that or the machines are extremely over loaded...again just in MY experience. I don't want to suggest that is the case here please.

hopefully this wasn't all for not, and the machine isn't actually leaking elsewhere.

hope that helps.

good luck

Shirt caught between the drums on my whirlpool cabrio washer

1. Unplug and take off the top of the washer.  There are two pressure clips in the front inside the crack between the top and body of the washer.  Use a stiff putty kniff to depress the clips and flip the top up out of the way.
2. Pry the top plastic shroud off the tub.  There are a series of plastic retainers clips around the shroud.  Pry them up and remove the shroud.
3. On the small agitator on the bottom of the washer, use your putty knife to remove the domed plastic cap in the center.  Pry it up with the corner of the knife to expose the nut.
4. Use a socket wrench to remove the center nut.  It will likely take a good deal of force to loosen it.
5. Once you have removed the center nut, get another person to help you lift the stainless steel inner tub out of the washer.  Place it aside.
6. In the bottom of the outer plastic tub, you will find the shirt (or other garment) caught in the drain.  Remove the screws on the top of the plastic drain cover, and lift up the drain cover.
7. Remove the stuck item(s).  For all the coins and small part that have fallen into the drain tub, you may have to open up the back of the washer and remove the drain hose to access the items in the drain.  Luckily the drain hose is held on with cheap hose pressure clamps, so you can do this relatively easily.
8. Call or email whirlpool and tell them that the washer is pulling clothes into the space between the inner and outer drums.  They will respond by telling you they have never heard of this problem before and if you need service, call "A&E Factory Service toll-free at (800) 771-3029."  
9. Be frustrated and vow never to buy a Whirlpool product again.  

Hope this helps

Kenmore Elite Oasis TL washer, stubborn Sd code

Found the problem. After removing the back panel, found some garments in the bottom of the surrounding clear plastic tub. These must have been periodically blocking the outflow area and triggering the Sd error code. Fixed it by opening the top components of the washer so I could see down into the surrounding tub from above. Fished out the garments with clothes hangar. Put everything back together and have done six loads with zero problems.
