This old gal dumped a bunch of water in my laundry room this morning while washing a mattress pad. I pulled the cover off this afternoon and there's water standing in the top of the pump but everything else was just about dried up. Ran a quick cycle to make sure the hoses weren't split, found that when the tub is spinning with a considerable amount of water in it, it leaks below the tub where it is slung against the sides, so I think what has happened was the tub seal has gone bad and the heavy water-logged mattress pad exacerbated the situation and it leaks worse when loaded.
1. Does this sound right or am I way off base, and
2. How big a job is this to replace? I posted for a service manual in the appropriate forum and not sure how long it may take, if anyone even has one.
This unit is about 16 years old....
