Whirlpool Elite washer leaks and squeals when trying to rinse during spin cycle

4 posts in this topic

Whirlpool Elite washer (~1985 model) has small leak and squeals intermittently during the spin cycle when it would have normally rinsed during the spin cycle. It does not squeal during any other time... just when it would normally spray/rinse during the spin cycle. When I took the washer apart, the pump assembly is wet. This makes me think that the pump assembly needs to be replaced. But the pump also handles the draining of the unit, and it drains fine and doesn't squeal when it drains. So I am at a loss on what is really wrong. Also, note that where the hoses connect to the pump, they all appeared to be dry, so it appears that the pump itself has a leak in a seal. Also, when I spin the pump pulley by hand, it seems to move freely. Is there more than I issue with this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well, even without any info on your washer, I think I may be on to something based solely on what you wrote. You said it only squeals at the point at which it rinses- SO- Have you checked your valve inlet screens? I have come across valves with restricted flow that scream when they open. It would be a nearly effortless check and possibly solve your problem. Let us know! Good luck!
