90 % of the time its the pump. these can be a pain to do, there are two screws # XXXXX on this diagram, take them out and remove the front panel then run a load and see where the water is comming from. if its the pump(right in the front) replace it if its the tub seal around the center shaft call a tech . thanks Bryan
Couple Follow ups please
What would the estimate cost be to replace the pump. Its and Amana Machine Heavy Load, Labor and Part.
Could the cause of breakdown be because the load in the machine was to heavy. My son put a large thick blanket it the machine.
One last question for now.
Ive done a couple loads since spotting the leak. The machine sounds and works the same except for the leak at the the rinse cycle. Your best guess right now would it be the pump or the seal. Im thinking the seal because of the blanket.
How long do good machines usually last before needing replacement.
I will see that you get paid soon. Just want to talk to the wife to see if she has any questions. Thanks, don
Wife thinks machine is pretty old and we will probably buy a new one.
Thanks for your input. It was a big help.
