Whirlpool Cabrio WTW8240YW0 - Leaking Water Question
« on: November 17, 2014, 11:25:27 AM »
Customer said that the Washer leaks when filling with water at beginning of Wash Cycle (not during the Rinse Cycle).
Therefore, I noticed water dripping where the hose attached to the Detergent Dispenser so I replaced it.
However, customer called back a month later stating that it's still leaking.
I was wondering if it could be the Tub Ring (detergent hole not big enough).
When I return, I will need to remove the rear panel to see where it's leaking.
Has anyone come across this type of issue or is there a Service Bulletin for this Model?

Never mind, I found the Service Pointer Bulletin (attached) and it's the Bleach Dispenser causing the water leak issue when filling during the Wash Cycle.
