It's hard to tell exactly where the water is coming from cause it's dripping from the edge of the outside of the plastic cover that surrounds the tub.
Assuming this is where the leak is, is there a seal of some sort between the agitator on the inside of the tub and the outside drive/transmission. I suspect there is, so my next question is how hard/easy is it to fix the problem?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Gary, here is what I want you to do. Unplug the washer, and then pull it away from the wall, and lean it back, and rest the washer on the back wall. Then lay down on the floor, and the pump will be right up front in the middle. Do this right after a load, so the water will still be around. Then feel around the pump front, and back, and see if you feel water. If so, you part # to your pump is 3363394 Tom Appliance Educator, Appliance Parts, Washer and Dryer Parts, Refridgerator and Freezer Parts, Stove and Oven Parts
