Sm8280871 washer. How do you take agitator out?


Are you sure this is a model number? It looks more like a Serial number. Model should be on a tag with serial number. Usually starts with letters then about 4 numbers and more letters. Providing that would likely get you better assistance.

Washer is leaking water on bottom of unit


If the water is gushing from the washer, check the small plastic air dome hose on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. Sometimes the hose can come loose and come off. This will cause the water to begin pouring out of the bottom of the the washer when it begins to fill. The following link lists some other items you may consider as well:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader

The link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak.

If the leak is more like a constant drip, another common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Roper washers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions will apply.

Roper washer is leaking above the motor.


Main gasket and seal on the bottom of the machine. You will need to replace the drum gasket and the bearing seal.
