I have made a small easly repaired hose leak into a tub leak. After the hose repair the machine got knocked over on its left side  (don't ask its embarrassing) and now leaks from the center and runs down the centering steel (on top). I have removed the spanner nut and the inner tub. I am trying to get to and possibly replace the tub seal if that is where it is leaking. Do I have to remove the gear box to replace the seal? If you remove the drive block how do you determine where to reposition it going back together?

It does not start leaking untill it is half full.

If it doesn't start leaking until it's half full, chances are you have a hairline crack in the outer plastic tub.

Take a trouble light and shine the light on the outer tub all the way around and check for a hairline crack.  That is, after you have removed the metal cabinet.

If you need help removing the metal cabinet, I will let the Samauri  explain it to you.

More information: I had already removed the cabinet and top ring. The only thing left on the shaft is the drive block. I hope you are wrong on the hairline crack if it was there wouldn't the water be running down the side and off of the lip of the outer tub? What holds the outer tub in place? A busted tub or bad gear box not having used replacements would mean Trash pile.

Remove the tub nut on top of the drive block and remove the inner tub....then you will be able to check for cracks or a split tub, or a bad tub seal

OK, Here is where we are. I removed the tub after determing the leak probably did not have anything to do with the shaft seals by RTVing them and filling the tub. The leak did respond to higher levels. Cleaned and inspected the tub in the sunlight could not find any cracks. Cleaned and RTVed (Blue Stuff) the tub seal and reinstalled the tub, let it cure over night, filled to the high level setting. No Leaks!! :) Yet. I will let it set for the day. Empty it tonight and hopefully reassembly it Thrusday if there are no more leaks and then :cool:.
