When the tub starts agitating is when the leak begins. It is leaking at a connection underneath the tub right at the bottom of the tub. It looks like a round connection at the bottom of the tub where it should be holding water before it drains. It doesn't seem to have anything on it that you can tighten up. No bolt or fastener. Its completely plastic.
There is a round disc rhat spins around and moves the tub, and at the connection of the white disc that spins and the connection to the tank there is a gasket and this is where it is leaking. Can we seal this with silicone? Or do we need to replace it?
What I can see doesn't look anything like this. What I see is a metal cone shape that attaches to the bottom of the tub. On the other side is a white round metal disc. When its spinning, the white disc is facing me, and the cone is on the other side.
The closest item is number 20. This is supposing that the bottom of the tub (the metal piece) is #27. However the metal cone and white disc are one piece with the point of the cone pointing toward the front and the white disc rotating around.
But its the connection at the bottom of the tank that is leaking.
Yes, I think so.
