#253638 Amana Washer model LW8363L2 Serial R9508048606 leaking

Posted by jeauxkewl on 03 May 2013 - 08:23 AM

Well, after Moostafa skeered me away, I went ahead and bit the bullet and bought a new pair of Maytags.... Vote's not in just yet.  I refused to pay a ton of change for a bunch of computer controlled crap that I read horror stories about on my favorite appliance forum, so I wound up with an agitatorless top loader and a new gas dryer to replace my 25+ year old one that still dried like a charm but the drum coating was worn off. Hope I don't live to regret the decision about the dryer... the washer, well, it was time. If for some reason I don't get a dozen or so years outta this one, I'll follow the lead here and refurb me an antique as you suggest. Thanks for all the helpful advice.. and the humor.

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.

 

2 questions:

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....
