more than likely your getting rust where the tub screws go throughj the side of outer tub,there should be two screws on the bottom of front panel to remove panel. remove these and pull front cover out at the bottom and you can get a good look at the tub , that should show you where your leak is, hope this helps.

The tub was accessed. I discovered the supply line (next to the tub) inside with a connecting T is where the leak is. It looks difficult to reach. Any ideas?

I know excatly how to get to it. you have the front panel off right? in the very front under the top you will see two 7/16 screws that hold the top down. take these out and the bleach hose off left side of top and lift top up. is this the piece thats leaking? Part 734257let me know Bryan

Hi Bryan:

 

No that is not the part. I was mistaken it was not a T, it is a connecting plastic piece with a hose in the inside. This connects 2 hoses from the supply line to the tub. Is this a piece that can be found on a Sunday to be replaced?

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
ok heres the parts to the injector which is whats leaking, thats what i thought it was until you said T so i looked up wrong part. but you still get at this the same way anyway. click here for all the parts for this http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx you should only havbe to replace this Part 444984and this Part 3259 to repair it. thanks Bryan

Do you know if these parts can be found at a hardware store, Home Depot or Lowe's?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

I doubt it but you can order them on line or if you have an appliance parts store in your area there not expensive. you can however take this piece out, and put a staight pisce of plastic hose connector in its place . that you can get at lowes. just bring it with you and get the same size connector and two little hose clamps.hope this helps BryanPart 1529
