Default Slow Leak when Filling
Model Number: LXR9245EQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My top-load washer has a slow leak when filling the tub. I laid a bath towel in front of the washer, to see if I could tell how much water it is, and where in the machine it is coming from. It seems to come from just about the middle of the machine. It is enough water to soak about 1/6 of the bath towel.

I had this leak for a couple weeks, then suddenly it got a LOT worse (gallons and gallons of water).I replaced the inlet hose and the hose from the tub to the pump.

So the leak is still there, but it's back to being small. Any idea what it could be? I have read that it could be the pump, but I would think that would be when the water is draining out of the tank.
