whirlpool washer repairguy in distress!
Posted 22 August 2006 - 11:16 PM
under lid i see stylemaster number 4214289
on back panel of machine [stamped 3357978]
on the back panel of machine white label Y432914
surely hope one of those is the desired number i saw nothing on machine's cabinet indicating model number and have looked all over...across the control panel reads
whirlpool super capacity plus
brief history of the last week of my washers life. it stopped spinning and agitating and i did some trouble shooting on this site and discovered the drive coupler needed to be replaced. took cabinet off / pump off / motor off / took coupler off and replaced. noticed a really rusty clamp the one on the bottom that holds pump to motor but thought nothing more of it but apparently we have had a leak to some degree for a while. once back together all is working fine except it leaks a river. so im back in troubleshoot mode and discover from this helpful site hey the pump looks like its been leaking so ill replace that and be the hero...right? so ive replaced the pump reassembled everything and ran the washer thru its cycle well i still have a river when it drains the water. so cabinet is back off and im thinking what have i done wrong here...hoses are hooked up to pump properly no leaks there / cant really tell where water would be getting away from where it belongs to be honest. I did notice when i was putting pump onto motor shaft it had developed some rust on the motor shaft that connects to pump but i thought a new pump in good working order would do the trick and that the rust issue there was probably from the time the old one was leaking. so here i am at my wits end and pleading for any help or guidance.
thanks in advance

Remove the cabinet again and run the washer that way. Now lay on the floor and watch for the leak. Nothing mysterious or psychotic: leaks are visual that way. Is simple, da?
