Hello. The older top load washers use up to 60 gallons of water per load. That said, also check your toilets as a leaking toilet can use tens of thousands of gallons per year. Here is a link that explains how to check your toilets and other items for leaks. Regards, Joe

Model # E3Z50RD055CV size 50 gallon whirlpool self cleaner water heater serial # 0051123062 Has lifetime warranty. Need 800 number so it can be replaced

They have a 6 or 9 year warranty according to this.

http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/media/93187/psss1013-standardelectric.pdf

companies that say 'Lifetime Warranty', are usually a company like Reliance, who will warranty for lifetime, but what they do it replace when it leaks and then put the price up to cover over the period of the guarantee. $600 price, 6 year warranty, your bill goes up $100 a year on top of what your were paying before. Clever marketing.

I have a whirlpool washer about 10 yrs old, not sure of model. Machine just ran for over 10 hrs yesterday. Did not overflow just keeps putting water in drains and never spins out.

It really can be a few things. On a 10 yr old washer I would not spend any money. If you can not go new I can always get a working washer for $100 or less on CL or Facebook Market Place

Ytek.netwe just moved into a house with a duet washing machine- a few years old. when we do a normal clean cycle, it doesnt appear there is that much water getting used. How much water should we see thru...

All front loaders use very little water as a opposed to a top loader that uses up to 45 gallons per load a front loader uses about 10,plus a front loader cleans clothes very well with that minimal water usage.
The major question is do the clothes seem to come out clean when you have used that washer?

Whirlpool ultimate care extra large, about 10 years old. when the machine is in spin cycle, it throws the circuit breaker. It started with a heavy load, but now it seems to do it all the time. It started...

Water leaking from tub seal into motor possibly? Try doing spin with dry newspaper under the machine and check for leaks. Could also possibly be water heater element loose or breaking down - leaks from drain hose or water pump body into windings? Dry news paper test should highlight where leaks are coming from.
!0 years old is ancient for a machine and you might consider replacement rather than a repair which will only be throwing good money after bad. Do you drive a 10 year old car? if you do, you expect repair bills to mount up! same with washer. I bet it doesn't owe you much!

5 month old Whirlpool Cabrio washer has moldy smell. Tub seems to empty well. Any ideas?

Smelly washers are common. Cabrio washers are HE and therefore use less water. By using less water, it doesn't rinse ITSELF as good as an older non-efficient machine. Things you can do to solve the problem. Buy a cleaner from Whirlpool called Affresh. It's 3 tablets that you throw in the washer without clothes and run it on the longest heavy duty cycle possible. Use the hot water setting and the longest duration. For existing smells use all 3 tablets. Then use 1 tablet every month to prevent reoccurring odors. You can also try the same type of cycle on hot water with a half of a gallon of bleach in the tub, or try it with a half of a gallon of vinegar. One of the 3 should do the trick.

I can't find the model number on washer Whirlpool Ultimate Care

Model # and info is under the lid. Open lid and look directly under it - area facing you. You should see a small silver tag with all the factory info on it. My washer is also 9 years old.

5 yr old washer is leaking

Ellbee, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel and lift it towards you. Two clips on the top that hold it will release. You can now get a good look at the pump. Catriver..post back.
