Leaking Whirlpool Cabrio WTW8240YW0

2 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio WTW8240YW0 that leaks intermittently at the tub ring apparently.  It has the newer style with the louvers in it.  It seems it may only do it when using the "sheets" load selection.  I can verify the  water is coming from the seam between the tub ring and tub at the dispenser.  Is there a fix because wasn't the louvered design supposed to fix this?  I gotta have clean sheets.

The louvered tub ring was designed to address the standing wave issue that caused water when filling through that dispenser cup to go over the top of the tub ring and leak in the left front corner of the cabinet.  This issue only occurred in the "sheets and towels" cycle as it filled through that dispenser cup.

 

I would reinstall the tub ring and ensure that it is fully seated.  The tub edge and ring are fairly flimsy and its easy to have it not be completely seated.
