Cabrio WTW6200SW2 - looking for leak
Posted 30 April 2012 - 02:36 PM
if it is coming from here, what needs to be replaced?
I put it all back together and removed the agitator and all the center stuff in the tub, cleaned out what dirt and build-up I found, put it back together, still getting leaking. Now after several more leaky loads I got the F 51 error. I ran all the diagnostic tests from the diagnostic guide I found inside the cabinet and it passed them all without issue. Put clothes back in the machine and F51 again. My next step is to reseat the harness for the RPS hoping I just loosened it in my meddlings, but I still need to find the source of the leak.
Any ideas? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

I've done many of these bearing jobs on 2-3 yr machines. If water has been passing the seal into bearings, they will fail sooner than later as water washes bearing lube out. The lube and water mix is a nasty black mess coming out around the shaft, when I see that I do the bearings. Kit comes with bearings, shaft, and seal. Instructions are included. You'll need the special tool for best results. It is not a bad job, but it'll take some time the 1st attempt. There are "how to" guides online and here also.

Saw the Whirlpool service video and it looks pretty darn easy - easier then replacing the tub - so wish me luck!
