Whirlpool Cabrio Leaks Water

I have had my washer for less than a year, and it started leaking water underneath. I tightened the hoses, but it still leaks. Not sure what this could be on a new washer.

    omg I had the A&E repair guy out first time because of crazy sounds (coins) which not only didn't get all of them but created a leak! Second time he did nothing to fix either problems! And this was all within the first year of owning them!
    I had a set of Maytag machines that were 40 years old and NEVER had coins get trapped or leaks.... I'm calling the local Maytag headquarters here in town and complain of LEMON!!!!

    I just reached the one year anniversary of my Cabrio washer and it is leaking like mad from the bottom. I don't have any noises coming from the machine to indicate coins/items trapped. From reading these reviews and others I'm beginning to think that there is no hope.

I have replaced 4 pumps in the last year and half because of coins in the pump.

Posted on Nov 17, 2009


I have an 18 month old Cabrio that is leaking underneath and the repair man told us that it needs a new water pump because of coins that have been sucked up.
I consider the machine a lemon, as well. It is impossible to find all coins and I have never had this problem in my 15 and 25 year old machines.

Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!

You probably got coins or junk in the water pump on the bottom back of washer and it poked a hole in the housing. Thats what happened to me

After every wash, there is a puddle of water underneath the washer, and it does not appear to be any of the hot, cold, or return hoses.

Check your drain. It might be slow and overflowing. Fill the washer and unplug it overnight and see if you get any water on the floor. Take the back off and do a load . Look for leaks. I have a manual and repair photos HERE

Leaking water from bottom

Hello there:
If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub-

How do I replace the drain hose on my Whirlpool Cabrio washer.

First make sure that you can obtain a new hose either from the maker or pattern part supplier

Once you have that part take the current hose off the back of the machine and lay it down into a bucket to drain off all of the water

Take any clips that secure the hose to the back panel and then remove that.

Follow the hose back to the pump

Lay the machine forward onto a strong surface and put something underneath it to prevent it falling on you

Remove the clip holding the outlet hose onto the pump and fit the new one , stand the machine upright and our some water into the drum by hand check for leaks

If it is dry, box it up and off you go

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

My Whirlpool Cabrio just started leaking badly from the bottom I would presume. It is only about two years old. I took the back cover off but cant seem to find where it could be coming from. I put a mirror...

your washer may be still under waranty.

this leacks may be for the water hose conections or the water pump.

You will find out if you see water running or droping (when the water begins or is trow away)

hope this information helps you

Water leaks

If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)
