Default Kenmore Series 80 washer leaking water above clutch assembly
Model Number: 11027802690   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years

Water leaking from center of unit during wash cycle. Initially thought it was tub seal, but a leak from the tub seal would roll off the water suspension plate? This leak is dead center through the clutch assembly. I'm thinking it must be leaking through point A or point B in the attached photo. Does this make sense? Is this serviceable?

Most of the time its the tub seal. Yours shows rust in the area.

Whirlpool W10814296 Gasket - AppliancePartsPros.com

But this is "A"

Whirlpool WP91939 Upper Transmission Shaft Seal - AppliancePartsPros.com

And this should be "B"

Whirlpool WP8577376 Seal - AppliancePartsPros.com

I'd sand off the rust, repaint, and install the $5 seal. Then test it. If its still leaking you can decide what else you want to do.

I still suspected the WP8577376 seal at point "B" over the tub seal due to how the water was leaking through the clutch assembly and not rolling off the washer support.

While I had the agitator and spin basket removed, I ran a wash cycle with the water level set for small load. The water level stopped just below the seal at point "B" with no leak. I ran another wash cycle after increasing the water level setting. This time the water level was above the seal at point "B" and below the seal at point "A", and I had the leak.

I pulled out the washer transmission and washer drive/brake assembly, and I replaced the WP8577376 seal. Removing the old seal was more difficult than expected; but after replacing the seal, the leak was gone!

Thanks for your help.
