I received this stackable washer and dryer about 2 years ago from my parents. It has worked great until today it started leaking water out of the bottom of the unit. It appears to be draining properly as I can see water coming out of the drain tube during certain cycles.

It seems there is water leaking from the bottom of the tub but only at certain times. I will turn the unit on and it will fill up with no problems. If i advance the timer to right after it's done filling it seems to drain, i feel the pump kick on and there is water coming out of the drain tube. The unit will spin up but that's when I notice water coming out of the unit under the tub. I have taken pictures of where it's leaking, any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you for looking!

Great pictures, and Kdog is 100% on the money. It's not a bad job on a normal top-load washer, but on the laundry center it's much more of a pain in the rear.

Reggie, I also must commend you on your pictures and description of the problem. It led to very quick diagnoses by the masters. You sir have successfully taken your first step into repair enlightenment. (take note all you other hoppergrasses!)

Thank you all for your quick help! This saves me having to call a repair man out to fix this, something I don't have the money for right now!

I am going to look into replacing these items, does anyone have a "service manual", or "repair manual" that might explain the process on replacing these parts? I was having a difficult time removing my agitator last night as the bolt up top is pretty rusted, I couldn't fit a socket around it (even after cleaning the bolt up a bit), and I couldn't get a good enough grip with pliers..

Truth me told, I'm not exactly sure what needs to be disassembled to replace these parts, any suggestions... Again THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP, YOU'RE ALL AWESOME!

Now my good fellow this will lead you to your next step of enlightenment. If you so choose and if you are serious become an apprentice Otherwise If you do not choose or you are not serious like those rejected as depicted below, then you too must "please, go home"

Well I definitely appreciate all the help you've given, and while I'm somewhat strapped for cash I would be more than happy to pay the 10$ you're asking for a standard apprenticeship.. My question is, how could I be sure that there is a service manual? I don't mind giving 10$, I would just like to know if there is a manual out there that would help me! Thanks again everyone!

That is a job from hell thank god I haven't done one in over 4 years... It is 3 or 4 times as hard to do the stack unit then the regular washer it is not for the faint at heart... I someone wanted me to do one these days I wouldn't even consider touching it for less then 400 labor that how much I hate them...
