Leaking Whirlpool - LSQ8543JQ0

7 posts in this topic

This is me at the end of my rope. My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II is driving me crazy. I noticed a leak two weeks ago and when I ran it with the cover off I saw the water coming from above the drive. It would pool on the drive and shake off on a spin cycle. I thought this had to be the centerpost gasket, right?

I have now replaced that and cleaned all the associated surfaces but the $*#!% thing still leaks when I put it back together. A lot. Apparently from the same place. Is there anything else this could be?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is there oil spray inside the cabinet ?

Hm. Hard to say. The water that leaks is pretty dirty. There is some spatter residue around the lower inside of the cabinet...

What would oil spray indicate if that's what it looks like? Would this mean time to buy a new washer or maybe something fixable?

Thanks again for the wisdom. I'm new at this but like the idea of picking this stuff up.

Ach. Sounds better to get a new one. Thanks a lot for the info. There's only so much that watching repair videos can tell a person.
