Hi I will try to help you.Can you tell were it is leaking from?Customer :The bottomTim Alan :There is a lower panel in the front that has 2 bolts that hold it in place, if you can remove that you might be able to tell were the leak is coming from.Customer :I can checkTim Alan :This particular unit has a high percentage of leaks that come from the center seal, if that's the case you probably wouldn't want it fixed.If you pull that lower panel off and see a lot of mud and splatters or dried mud, the leak is coming from the center seal.Customer :There's a Plastic container on top of a metal platform and there's a drip coming from that metal platform towards the back of the washer. I can't get any closer for better look.Tim Alan :Is the drip coming from the area of the center of the tub? Down near the bottom or up high?Customer :The water seems to be collecting on that metal plate and dripping over the side of that plate. It's not in the center of the washer as much as it's drippimg off to the right side of plate. There's no mud but there is splatter marks from the drip.Tim Alan :That sure sounds like the center seal that is leaking, not sure what you are calling a metal plate, there is a lower bearing that sits in a part called a milk stool and that is pretty much what it looks like, then there is a pulley and break assy, and think that is the area that you are describing.
Customer :i don't know but it's definitely dripping from that piece with the red and white connectors on it on the inside of the machine. Like i said it was dripping even when the machine wasn't running which would make sense. As far the platform the tub sits on, with me only being able to look from the front panel it looked like it was dripping from the metal platform, Yes that's where it's dripping from according to your picture tou sent. I turned the water off and it's not dripping.Tim Alan :Hey good job you found, some leaks are tricky, you should be able to replace that on your own, you did the hard part all ready, the valve isn't that hard to do from there.Valve PART NUMBER: 27001146 this is the part number of the valve. I always replace the hose gaskets when i replace a valve but that's up to you.Customer :Awesome do i just go to home depot for this part.Tim Alan :I doubt if they would have it, sears parts may have it but not all stores do, most appliance part stores will have them, just type in appliance parts to bring up your local listings.places to order online would be partselect, appliance parts pros, appliance zone, sears parts direct.Customer :Awesome Tim thank you very much for sticking with me and all your time. That's a LOAD off my mind. No pun intended.Tim Alan :Hey your welcome, and i am glad it wasn't the center seal, thank you and have a great weekend.Customer :You too!
